Welcome to the Just for Fun Blog Hop!

Today you will be hopping with the same talented consultants who bring you the Stamp of the Month blog hop.  Today we are featuring artwork which showcases the awesome Fundamental product line!

If you are just arriving here from EMILY SARARAS 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 19 consultants participating so you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I decided to focus on the Whimsy Fundamentals for my Card.

I just had surgery on my right arm and I am right handed so I needed to design something that would be easy to put together. I love how with all these coordinating elements make it so simple to put something together.  For this card I used the Whimsy Fundamental Paper Pack, Whimsy Coordinating Ribbon, Inspire Complements, and White Pearls.

During November, save on crafting essentials like paper, ribbon, die cuts and stickers during our Just for FUN sale! Save 40% on bundles of coordinating Fundamentals products, or save 30% on individual items!

CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Fabulous Foil

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 10 of us highlighting our FABULOUS FOIL. This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.

If you are coming from HALEY DYER BLOG, you are on the right track!

I love our heavy weight foil cardstock.  It is perfect for embossing and you can even create scored creations using your Cricut.  Here is what I created:

So I took an image from Artbooking Circle Doily. I duplicated the image then hid the contour lines so only was the outer shape.  I then hid some of the contour lines on the other and changed it to a score line image.  I then centered the two and attached them to create this cut/score file . I then used the largest circle die to cut my white circle.  I used the lagoon ink, cardstock, fundamental paper and ribbon (which are part of the Adventure collection).

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto MELISSA ROBINSON’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my creation and happy hopping!

Happy Crafting!
