For this card I used my cricut Explore to cut the circle in the card base.  I then used flower found on page 2.  I cut the flowers at 3.32 ” high.  When I pulled the image from Design Space the layers of the flower are linked so I kept them grouped while I sized the flower image then un-grouped them.  To create the Boken background I used Pacifica, Thistle and Sweet Leaf.  The “with sympathy” is from Sincere Expressions stamp set A1146 and used Pacifica to stamp it.  I added the Extra Thick Thistle Twine to the stem and frayed the ends.

Happy Crafting!

ABC’s Blog Hop ~ P

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

ABC's Blog HopFor this hop we will be featuring the letter “P”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “P” element will be featured in their post.

For my letter “P” I am featuring two PAPER PACKS ~ Blossom and Brushed and my PHOTOS are from Sky PRAIRIE PARK.  I also could not resist giving you a PEAK at the new Close to My Heart Artistry cartridge.  I have really enjoyed mixing up the paper packs and for this layout it was no different.

I used several cuts from the new Artistry cartridge.   The banners up in the top left corner can be found on page 30 (cut at 1.54″ high and 1.79″ high).  The medallions behind the monkeys is the banner found on page 3 (cut at 2.34″ high).  The Glacier circle is cut at 2″.

ABC's P detail ~ Blossom ~ Brushed ~ Artistry ~ CatScrapbooking.comI used the Artistry font which is Hopscotch Alphabet.  I did weld and stretch the alphabet to get it the way I wanted it.  I cut it twice once in Kraft and once in Lagoon. The monkeys are found on page 24 (2″ and 1.14″ high).  I used my journaling pen to make the nose and mouths.  I used my black Shin Han marker to color the Bitty Sparkles for the eyes on the three larger monkeys.
Here is the full list of supplies used:

  • Paper Packs: Blossom X7196B and Brushed X7190B
  • Cardstock: Kraft, Glacier, Sunset, Lagoon and White Daisy
