I really like this stamp set as it is so happy and cheery.  There are so many fun things you can create as you are experiencing with this blog hop.  I created a card for my project.

June SOTM Blog HopFor this card I used Crystal blue as the base.  I used my Martha Stewart fringe scissors to cut the grass and then used my quilling tool to curl the blades. I used the Chantilly B&T paper and Chantilly fabric to add some contrast.  I used my markers to add color to the stamped images.

CTMH – Roxybond Scrappers Team Blog Hop – Chantilly

Welcome to Roxybond Scrappers Team Blog Hop!!

Roxybonds Scrappers

We are featuring some of the new product lines from the Spring/Summer 2013 catalog.  This month we are showcasing the Chantilly paper line.

If you have come from Jen’s blog then you are on the right path. Your next stop with be Tess’s Blog.  This paper pack is so bright and colorful!  It has been fun and easy to create with this paper pack.  For this blog hop I created a layout and some cards.

Finished page kit 2 - Version 2

For this layout I used the Chantilly paper pack, Twilight, Sweat Leaf, Buttercup, Cotton Candy and Daisy White Cardstock.  I also used the Pink Glitter Gems and the Chantilly WOTG stamp set.  The inks I used were Twilight, Buttercup and Cotton Candy.

Happy thoughts Card 4 - Version 2

For this card I used my Silhouette to actually cut the shape of the leafs and flower – no more fussy cutting here!!!  I used the Happy Thoughts stamp set with Cotton Candy and Sweet leaf inks.  I then went back over the flower with Stickles to give the glitter look. I also used and embossing folder to emboss the Cotton Candy cardstock. I am becoming addicted (just like everything else with paper crafts)  to Washi tape  which is what I used to in the middle of the card.

Chantilly Iris Fold card 1 - Version 2

Iris fold cards are so much fun and such a neat way to bring color to a design.  I used my Silhouette to cut the dragonfly then used Chantilly paper strips along with another pink scrap I had to make the wings. The sentiment was stamped in Cotton Candy using For Every Occasion stamp set.

Chantilly Happy Birthday 4 - Version 3

I have to admit Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration and ever scrap-lift. I was always told that scrap-lifting is the best form of flattery.  Well I took my inspiration from a card that was made by Christine Adams.  I used Pear, Twighlight, Cotton Candy and Daisy White Cardstock.  To cut the Cotton Candy scalloped circles, I used a Spellbinders die.  I used my 1 1/4″ circle punch for the circles and then used the Chantilly WOTG and Perfect Fit- Birthday stamp sets.

I hope you enjoyed these creations and if you need to pick you any supplies you can find most of them on here on my CTMH website. Now hop on over to Tess blog and check out her wonderful creations!!

Waterfall Cards

I have really enjoyed making cards. In fact I did not realize how many cool techniques with card making there are. I really like the interactive ones particularly the waterfall card. Here are a couple of versions.

This Butterfly card was made with the footloose paper, lagoon, colonial white, sweet leaf and olive card stock. I used a stamp set from Technique Tuesday for the saying and butterflies. I then used watercolor pencils to color the butterflies.

This was a card I designed for the malamute rescue I volunteer for. It was fun to use some of my dog themed stamps. I used scraps of my papers that I had around. Cards can be a great way to use left over scraps.

This card was also created using some of the papers I had around. I used a stamp set by Technique Tuesday for the wine theme. I used the CTMH stamp set Life is Tweet for the “It’s your birthday”. The “cheers” was stamped using the Trinity alphabet by CTMH.

Sympathy Cards

It seems like lately I have unfortunately been needing to send a lot of sympathy cards.   This is always a hard time when a friend looses a love one whether it is for a human or a companion animal.  Here are a couple of cards I designed.

In this card I used CTMH A Blossom stamp set, sweet leaf card stock, lagoon card stock, dotty for you paper and sweet leaf and lagoon ink.

For these two cards I used some scraps along with CTMH colonial card stock, blush ink, indian corn blue ink and 4 my friends stamp set.
