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!

Color Dare #225 ~ Colonial White, Fern, Pomegranate, Champagne and Cashmere

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #225 we are challenging you to combine COLONIAL WHITE, FERN, POMEGRANATE, CHAMPAGNE, and CASHMERE.  

My first thought was to do something with flowers but then I realized I would need a bunch of thank you notes for the new year for my Wildtree business.  So I decided to design something I could use as for that.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #225 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday December 15, 2016 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!
