Heart 2 Heart ~ Sunny Days

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This week for our challenge we are about Sunny Days. I designed a layout using the Summer Vibes paper and the fun Summer Vibes Acrylics.

We spent memorial weekend in Pass Christian, MS with my family. We had a boiled crawfish and a lot of fun. I used the Summer Vibes Paper and Sticker sheet. I also used the cute Summer Vibes Acrylic Shapes.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until July 31th to participate in this challenge. Make sure you include at least one Close to My Heart product. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!

July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop – For My Beautiful Friend

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring May’s stamp of the month ~ FOR MY BEAUTIFUL FRIEND a set of 8.

If you are coming here from MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ 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.  This month we have around 18 consultants participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

I wanted to focus on some of the smaller stamps in this stamp set rather than the girl holding the bouquet.

I had this idea to random stamp the butterflies on black cardstock and then watercolor. I stamped the butterflies with White Pigment ink and then used white embossing powder. I used the Brushed Papers along with Canary and Pixie cardstocks.

Here is a detail where you can see the watercolor paints as they show up on the black cardstock. I also added a couple of the Whited Dots.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of JULY and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

Your next stop is along this hop is WENDY KESSLER’S Blog, so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Crafting!
