Creativity in Motion Blog Hop...

Thank you for visiting my blog on a FRIDAY NIGHT!

We have a special treat for you tonight...I'm joining some other CTMH Consultants in bringing you the Creativity in Motion Special!

If you've come from Miss Carrie's Blog, you're on the right track! Keep on hopping around until you get back to where you started! If you're starting here, WELCOME!!!

Here is a FUN Birthday card I made with some NEW Birthday Borders & Thin Cuts (I elongated the thin cut to make it fit this standard size card) stamps and the NEW Sundance Cardstock! I created the ombre look on the candles using Canary, Flamingo, Raspberry and Lagoon Exclusive Ink...I LOVE the orange and the purple that the ombre created!




If you want to see this card in motion, head on over to my Instagram Account and check out my stories!

Peek-a-boo Technique Blog Hop...

I CANNOT WAIT for all of you to see what we have to show you featuring the technique PEEK-A-BOO!

There are only a few of us participating in this month's Blog Hop so it won't take you long to hop around and see what everyone is doing. If you've come from Brandi's Blog, you're on the right track...keep hopping around (leaving love along the way) until you get back to where you started. If you're starting here, WELCOME!

I decided to us our NEW Tabbed Doors Card Front Thin Cut and several Stamp Sets: Celebrating You, Birthday Greetings and You Brighten My Day (only available THIS MONTH)...

------------------------------------------------------
I created a "template" to make stamping easy. You just cut an extra card front then take your microtip scissors and cut off the doors. You are left with a perfect template for your stamping...
---------------------------------------------------------
Here's a look at my template overlaying all my stamping. When the recipient gets the card, all the doors will be closed (not appear to have been opened and closed over and over) but the stamping behind the doors will be perfectly placed!

-------------------------------------------------
I used an ombre of sorts to stamp the inside of the card...and that LOVELY PAPER is from the Party Time Paper Packet in our 2020-2021 Core Catalog...LOVE IT!!!


If you want to see some tips and tricks on this FUN CARD FRONT, you can watch my process video below:

H2H Multi-Dimension Magic...

HAPPY MONDAY!!! The only things that make Mondays tolerable are:
  1. A Sunday FULL of mood-enhancing rest, relaxation and the Word.
  2. An 8:30 start time to my full-time job.
  3. H2H Challenges
This week's H2H Challenge is all about that Multi-Dimension Magic! If you're a follow of mine, you know I LOVE ME SOME DIMENSION!!!

Here's a look at what I decided to showcase...my NEW Scrapbooking Workshop Kit with Bloom With Grace..

--------------------------------------------------------
Here's a closeup - the leaf going up the right side of the photo place holder is a sticker from the Sticker Sheet and they are adhered directly onto my layout...the Sunflower Grouping is also from the Sticker Sheet but I took the sticky off with my Anti-Static Pouch and used 3D Foam Tape to pop it off the page....the wooden shapes are from the Bloom with Grace Wooden Shapes and those are adhered with Liquid Glass. They are little more dimensional that the 3D Foam Tape I used so there are 3 layers of various dimension in this one little corner...

Thanks for stopping by!

Check back here or my YouTube Channel for the THREE Bloom with Grace Scrapbooking Workshops I'm offering!

Don't forget to head on over to the H2H Challenge Blog to check out the other DT Members and what MULTI-DIMENSION MAGIC they have to share!

NEW Product Blog Hop - Sept/Oct Catalog...

I am sooooo glad that we are bringing you NEW GOODIES from the September/October Supplemental Catalog tonight because the weather here has me feeling ALL the AUTUMN FEELS!!!

If you are coming here by way of Alyson's Blog, you're on the right track...keep on hopping 'till you get back to where you started. If you're starting here, WELCOME!!!

I wanted to use the NEW Textured Leaves to create a one-layer card (as one layer as I get...lol) with some of the NEW colors I just can't get enough of!!! I used the Avocado to create a watercolor background by turning my ink pad over onto a block, spritzing with water then using a baggie to pick up the ink and apply to my card base. For the leaf, I inked it up in Sundance, then the middle-to-right in Desert Rose then the right in Scarlet then stamped it off on to my White Daisy cardstock. This stamp set comes with Thin Cuts (if you want...you can also purchase without, if you don't have a die-cut machine) so there was no fussy cutting for me. I used 3D Foam Tape to pop it up. The sentiment comes from the Card Craft With Heart Subscription for Sept-Dec.



Thanks for stopping by! Your next stop is Brandi...hop on over and see what she has to share!
