Blushing Background Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 13 of us highlighting our wonderful BACKGROUND STAMP SETS. This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.

If you are coming from PRISCILLA GOTHAM BLOG, you are on the right track!

I love some of our background stamps, in particular the paw prints. So of course I needed to crate something with this stamp set.

For this card I used the Faithful Friend and Paws stamp set. I chose pomegranate as the color to highlight next to the neutrals.  I used Heather Cardstock and the Basic Fundamentals.

Snowflake Layout ~ Winter Fun

Ready for another snow layout?  Here is one I did using the now retired Close to my Heart snowflake thin cut.

For this layout I used White and Sea Glass glitter paper.  It is a simple layout but I really love the way the snowflakes turned out.  I did add some white splatter to the background to look like snow.

Happy Crafting!

Snow Fun Layout

I have actually been able to get a few layouts completed over the holidays.  Here is another layout completed.

For this layout I used a paper pack I had in my stash but I do not remember the name as I have been hanging on to it for about 5 years.  I did use the CTMH retired snowflake thin cuts.

Construction Layout #2

So I posted two days ago that I found some time to scrapboook.  I tackled my son’s second birthday which was a construction party.  Here is the second layout.

For this layout I combined a couple of paper packs ~ Dreamin’ Big, Whimsy Fundamentals and Magical.

Construction Birthday Layout

It has been a while since I have taken the time to scrapbook. I knew I needed to take some time and do what I truly love to do.  So I made some time this week to works on some layouts.  One of the layouts I decided to tackle one particular layout…. my son’s second birthday.  I have put off these layouts as I wanted them to be perfect and I had collected some construction theme embellishments and wanted to make sure to incorporate all of it. I decided to just go for it!!

Here is my first layout:

I was able to incorporate the invitation I made that year too.  It felt really good to get these layouts completed as it gets me one step closer to completing the year 2013.

I so love our glitter paper as it cuts so beautifully with our cricut cartridges. I decided to create a holiday card based off one I had pinned, you can see it here.

All of the images are from the Flower Market Cartridge.  The “Peace” is using Aeolus font. I added some more glitter by using our Shimmer Brush on the poinsettia. I added a little gold glitter gem to the center of my poinsettia. Here is a close up of the poinsettia.
