The first item that caught my eye was the Gnome Matter Stamp and Thin cuts. I love Gnomes and was so excited to play with this set.

I stared with this one creating a scene with sponging the background. I then used the circle from the Shaker Thin Cut window and the stitched Rectangle thin cut to cut the Daisy White Cardstock.

For this card I used the new Timber paper Pack and the Say It In Style Stamp Set.

The pattern paper is from Timber and the trees are cut with my Cricut using the Aurora collection. The sentiment is also from the Say It In Style Stamp Set.

So last week I built a big fort for my son. He loves it and has been sleeping in it every night. I don’t have the photos printed but I designed this layout for those photos. Here is a photo of what it looks like.

I love the Aurora paper pack and knew it would be perfect for our indoor camping. I used a few Cricut cuts and one from my Silhouette. I also added a some Silver Stickles.

I used The Great Indoor stamp set to make the tittle and to stamp the houses. I used Sage, Linen, and Sapphire cardstock. I used Charcoal, Sage, and Sapphire ink.

May/June New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the May/June New Product Blog Hop!

Today you will be hopping with the same talented consultants who bring you the Stamp of the Month blog hop. For this hop we are featuring artwork using products from the new May-June Idea Book. I am sure you will find a wide variety of inspirations on this hop.

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  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.
