April Stamp of the Month ~ O-fish-ally Awesome

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring March’s stamp of the month ~O-Fish-Ally Awesome (S2004) a set of 37.

If you are coming here from MELINDA EVERITT’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ 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.  This month we have around 20 consultants participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

I love this stamp set! I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to make a Pop Up Shadow Box card with it. If you want to see the basics on how this was made you can check out this post for directions.

There are actually two layers in the middle. I did do a lot of fussy cutting but it was totally worth it! I was inspired by the card in the catalog which shows the port hole window. I did use a bit of Waterfall Stickles and Golden Rod Stickles with the treasure chest. I also used Glacier, Daisy White and Peach cardstock. I used the Seas the Day paper pack.

I also created a layout with the stamp set.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of APRIL and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

Heart 2 Heart ~ Paper Tearing

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This week we are challenging you to use paper tearing in your project. This was all the rage a few years ago and I have not done it in some time until recently. It is fun to bring things back to life. Let’s see what will you create? Just remember you must use at least on Close to My Heart product in you project.

I have really enjoyed making the double point cards, here is one I created in February. I was watching a few of my fellow Close to My Heart sisters videos for the Creative Hop and saw this one by Tina Lovell which inspired me to make this card as she used torn paper in hers.

For this card I used the Seas the Day paper pack with Sapphire, Carolina, and Daisy White. I used the Seas the Day Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cuts. I used the large circle from the Shaker Thin Cuts for the Sapphire cardstock and then the large circle is from the basic circle thin cuts.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until March 31st to participate in this challenge. Make sure you include at least one Close to My Heart product. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!
