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 17consultants participating and you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I absolutely love the Aurora papers and stamp sets!!! Particularly living here in Colorado! I love the set of 5 cards that I created using the These are my People, so I decided to use those 5 card layouts to make cards with the Aurora papers. If you want to see the original cards you can find them HERE.

For this card I used Evergreen cardstock with the Aurora papers. I used the Aurora – Scrapbooking Stamp set with A Little Sentiment stamp set. I added a couple of the Blue Seas the Day dots.

For this card I used the Stamp of the Month stamp set for the sentiment. The trees are from the Aurora – Scrapbooking Stamp set using 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation stamping.

With this card I used Charcoal and Evergreen ink to rock-n-roll the stamp of the wolf image. I then came back and used the Gold Shimmer Brush to color the moon. I also made a stencil with 3 stars that I used with Texture paste that I colored with Evergreen Ink. I did used Linen cardstock for the wolf image.

I used the same technique of stamping in Charcoal ink the using Evergreen on the edges. I did add one of the Gold Glitter Gems for the center of the sun. I did add a bit of sapphire burlap ribbon which has been retired. I doodled with the Pewter journaling pen to add more dimension.

For this card I used the rock-n-roll technique with the image. The sentiment comes from the Stamp of the Month stamp set for May. I used my Pewter Journaling pen to doodle around the white cardstock.
