March/April Catalog New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the March/April New Product Blog Hop!

You will be hopping with the same talented Makers who bring you the Stamp of the Month blog hop. For this hop we are featuring the new March-April Catalog that was just released this month! There will be sure to see some beautiful artwork!

If you are just arriving here from MELISSA ROBINSON’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 Makers on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 16 Makers participating and you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I adore the gnomes that CTMH has been releasing, and the Kitchen Gnomes are no exception! I knew they would be the perfect compliment to this layout along with some of the Eat Play Love Cricut cuts and Wood Embellishments.

I used Sapphire, Candy Apple, Almond, and Green Apple as my colors. I used the Seasonal Mixins for the pattern papers. I did create my own pattern Paper on the Green Apple with the Charming Backgrounds Stamp Set. I used the Lovely Borders Stamp and Thin Cuts to make the diamond border.

I felt the Sapphire base needed a bit of interest so I added splatters with the Sapphire Shimmer Brush.

Here is a close up of some of the Eat Play Love Cricut cuts and Wood Embellishments I used. I used Candied Apple Oxide Ink to color the hot mitt. I then went over it with my Red Shimmer brush and added a bit of the Onyx Pearl Liquid Pearls.

Here is a close up of that cute Kitchen Gnome that was colored with my Tri-Blend markers. I decided I wanted him to hold the wooden whisk from the Eat Play Love Wood Shapes. Again I colored the Whisk with Oxide inks this time Black Soot and Candied Apple. I then added a touch of the Red Shimmer brush and added a bit of the Onyx Pearl Liquid Pearls.

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

Happy Crafting!
