Thanks & Giving SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s SOTM blog hop! I know you will get a lot of inspiration from everyone! Today you should have arrived from Ronda’s blog. If not, thats ok, its a circle, and you will get back to her!

I try to find things to do with the stamp sets that are a bit different than what other people might do. Today I have this fun wreath type look for my card.

It turned out so fun!! I colored in the flower centers and buds with bonding memories glue, and then added the gold embossing powder and heat set it. I added color to the flowers and leaves with the shinhan markers.

I used one of the stitched thin cuts for the center and added the gather greeting that I had heat embossed with the gold powder o to some of our vellum, and cut out withthe micro tip scissors.

I couldn’t leave the inside blank, so I added some more of the same image, and did a bit more embossing and coloring.

I think it turned out great! What do you think? Let me know, and then hop on over to Krista’s blog!

Sew What?! – CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH Technique blog hop! Today we are showcasing sewing (as if you couldn’t figure that one out already, right?) Today you should have arrived from Wendy’s blog. If not, that’s ok, it’s a circle and you will get back to her! Let’s jump right in, shall we?

Today I am back with another “only White Daisy Cardstock” card. Now, this one was actually inspired by this card that I found on Pinterest when I was trying to figure out what to do for this hop, since I don’t have the new decorative borders thin cuts (which I cannot wait to get!)

I used three different stamp sets on this card! This is not something that I normally do, but I wanted to make something that came close to the inspiration card, and I had all of these sets, so I thought it was perfect!

I used the Lavender, Peony Purple, and Golden Yellow Shin-han markers as well as the journal pen to color these flowers and the tiny purple border that you see. The images and sentiment are stamped in archival black ink. I used the new Embellishing thread to stitch the holes from my largest circle stitched thin cut. The little bit that I had extra, I created the messy loops for a bit more interest. And, last, but not least, I added some silver glitter gems to the centers of a couple of the flowers.

Can you name the three stamp sets that I used? I will have a drawing next weekend to give away this card to those that guess correctly*! Leave your guesses here or over on my Facebook page! I will draw on 9/23 during my FB live!

I hope you like my card! I think it came out pretty close to the inspiration, with my own little twist. Let me know what YOU think!

After you leave your comment, hop on over to Michelle’s blog (yup, there’s lots of us out there!) to see her fantastic creation!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you liked what I have, and what the other ladies have, and will leave everyone some love!

Until next time!

Central Park Happy Birthday!

Last weekend I did a FB live video, and made this fun card. I was cutting pieces for the 2nd card as well, but didn’t put it together during the FB live video. I really like how they both turned out! They were such a fun way to use some Thin Cuts that wouldn’t necessarily be how you think of them! Today I am linking up to the H2H Challenge, “For the love of crafting”. You should join in too! You have until the end of the month to join us!

This is the card that I made during the video. Do you know which thin cuts I used? (if you didn’t watch the video) Would you believe that I used the diamond in the Fresh Air thin cuts? (which, looks like they have sold out, that is so sad!)

I just lined them up so that there was about the same amount of space between the diamonds on the whole card. Just trimmed off the excess from around the edges of the card. I used a zip strip for the middle, and a scrap of White Daisy cardstock to stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Birthday Key stamp set (which you won’t find in the book, but you will find online!). I love the font that they used for this stamp!

This card uses one of the other shapes in the same thin cut set. This time I decided to add a layer of bashful cardstock (retiring at the end of this month) to add a bit more interest to the card. I popped up each of the die cut pieces onto some foam tape to add more dimension.

I cut down one of the zip strips so it was less than 1/2 an inch, and wrapped some white twine around it. I used the same happy birthday sentiment on some scrap white daisy cardstock with archival black ink.

On both cards I added a few of the sequins from the central park sequin pack.

I hope you like my cards today! Come play along with us at H2H, and get your crafting on!

See you next time!
