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.

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.

Zoe Cardworkshop

I have a fun card workshop planned for you.  As you can tell I simply adore the Zoe paper pack!  The colors are awesome and can be used for any occasion.

15-ai-rolled-zoe-papers I designed 4 fun cards ~ two birthdays and two thank you  cards as these are generally the two styles of cards I send out the most.  I will be hosting this card workshop Monday August 31st at 6:30 PM.  I know in my newsletter I said it would be the first Wednesday of the month, but with school starting and new schedules I needed to change to Monday night which ends up being the last Monday of the month.  The cost of the workshop is $12 and I will be offering a reward system for those who come to the classes frequently.  So if you come to 4 classes (and it does not have to be every month) the 5th class is half off.

Take a look at the fun cards you will be making at this workshop:

Zoe Card 2 ~ Happy Birthday ~

Zoe card 1 ~ Happy Birthday ~

Zoe Card ~ Color Dare #155 ~ Thanks So Much ~

Zoe ~ Pinwheel Card ~ CatScrapbooking.comPlease let me know if you can make this workshop.  Space is limited so sign up soon.  You can email me at
