CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Fabulous Foil

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 10 of us highlighting our FABULOUS FOIL. 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 HALEY DYER BLOG, you are on the right track!

I love our heavy weight foil cardstock.  It is perfect for embossing and you can even create scored creations using your Cricut.  Here is what I created:

So I took an image from Artbooking Circle Doily. I duplicated the image then hid the contour lines so only was the outer shape.  I then hid some of the contour lines on the other and changed it to a score line image.  I then centered the two and attached them to create this cut/score file . I then used the largest circle die to cut my white circle.  I used the lagoon ink, cardstock, fundamental paper and ribbon (which are part of the Adventure collection).

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto MELISSA ROBINSON’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my creation and happy hopping!

If you are coming from DEBI MCBAIN BLOG, you are on the right track!

I knew I wanted to show the subtle differences with the light and darker sides of our new cardstock but I was not quite sure how to do this…. so I turned to Pinterest.  I stumbled on a image for quilting and though perfect.  Here is what I came up with.

I used the lighter side of the papers for the top triangles and darker on the bottom.  I used Willow, Canary, Thistle and Lagoon.  I also incorporated two of the basic ~ Mink and Charcoal. I used All the Thanks B1536 Stamp set for the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto MICHELLE LONCAR’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!

Fun with Stencils

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 8 of us highlighting Fun with Stencils. 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 MICHELLE LONCAR BLOG, you are on the right track!

So I decided to to utilize one of the succulents from the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge. So I cut them at varying sizes along with the base layer.

Then I placed the cut outs on white cardstock starting in the middle.  Once the succulent was sponged I then took the base layer and masked that spot.  I then layered all the different succulents, sponging and masking as I added layers.

This is how the base turned out.  I then added a sentiment.

I used the Little Dreamer Paper Pack for the strip and Blossom cardstock for the oval.  I used the new oval thin cuts.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto JUDY FAYE GARNER’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!
