Today you will be hopping with the same talented consultants who bring you the Stamp of the Month blog hop.  Today we are featuring artwork which showcases National Stamping Month with Create with Kindness Campaign.

If you are just arriving her from KRISTA HERSHBERGER’S Blog, or just starting at my blog then you are on the right track ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 24 consultants participating so you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I love this campaign as you can create fun quick cards like shown above.  I decided to play around with the set and also create a card using one of the stamp sets. So lets get on with the art works. First I have a card that I designed using Create Kindness ~ Friend CC1149

Happy Birthday ~ Create Kindness Friend ~ Happy ~ CatScrapbooking.comI masked off the “friend” and then stamped the flowers on a strip.  I love coloring with the Shin Han Markers.  I used the new thin cuts to cut the “happy” out of Glacier and added a birthday from Finding Words D1646.

Here is how I designed my Create with Kindness Cards.

Layout # 32 of My Personal Challenge

I got a little off last week and was not able to get a layout completed.  I am back on track this week with another layout. I got to play with some of the new goodies from the new Annual Inspirations Idea book.

Concerts ~ Rustic Home ~ stars thin cuts ~ Overlay frames ~ CatScrapbooking.comI designed this layout with using a flip flap to hold the other tickets.  I am actually using a 4×4 flip flap to hold our other concert tickets. Here is what it looks like. I had not put it in a protective sleeve because of the glare for the photo so you can sort of see the white strip.

Concerts 2 ~ Rustic Home ~ Stars Thin Cuts ~ Frame Overlay ~ CatScrapbooking.comFor this layout I used the following products:

Technique Blog Hop ~ Thin Cuts by CTMH

Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop!

10271201_10153473465602934_1925557173188598655_oThis month we are featuring the Close to My Heart Thin Cuts!  What is a thin cut?  Well these are thin metal dies that you use with a embossing/die cutting machine.  I love these dies as you can watercolor and or ink you image then cut it out.   If you just hopped onto my blog or arrived from MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog then you are in the right place.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork.

I decided to play around with the My Anchor thin cuts and watercolors.

My Anchor ~ Thin Cuts ~ Watercolor ~ CatScrapbooking.comI used a piece of watercolor paper and masked of using tape.  I painted the land, the water, and the sky.  I then painted more water colors on another piece of watercolor paper.  I used the waves thin cut to cut out the various shades of waves.  I used ink to stamp the other images.

Here is the full list of products used:

These thin cuts are only available while supplies last or until April 30, 2015.  As you can see the Springtime wishes has sold out so make sure you get yours while supplies last.

Now hop on over to KIRSTEN JADE ’S Blog and see what she has created for you today.  If you get lost along here is the full list of participants.
