April 2016 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring April's SOTM, which is Life in Pictures, a set of 13 stamps.  I love this set....there is just something about cameras that just makes me happy!

 If you have come here from Brenda Lapp's Blog  you are on the right path!  This month we have close to 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go.....

Here is a card I made:

The first card I used our Spring Critters stamps and Thin cuts to add my chick into the frame.

The next card I embossed the background and used our watercolors to add the rainbow colors.  

My last card i randomly stamped with black ink and then messily painted in the cameras. 

I used the following products:
S1604 Life in Pictures SOTM
C1638 Spring Critters Stamp Set
Z3207 Spring Critters Thin Cut dies
Z3146 Watercolor Paper
1386 Black Cardstock
44571 Black Archival Ink PadZ891 VersaMark Pad
Z2088 Clear Embossing PowderZ3035 Pixie Thick Twine
The black enamel stars are no longer available :(

  8. Your watercolouring is so fun and fabulous, great mix of cards!
