Close to My Heart Christmas Card Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Christmas Card Blog Hop.

There are almost that 20 of us Close to My Heart consultants that are taking part in this hop show so off the new products.  So grab some coffee and hop along.  If you have come from Corinna M Murphy's Blog  you are on the right track.

Here are the cards I have made:

I got on the shaker card bandwagon with my first card. I cut the snow globe into a 4x5.25 inch piece of cardstock and used that as my window. 

I used the following:  
Z3385  Warmest Wishes Stamp & Thin Cut bundle
X7225B Beary Christmas Paper Pack
I inked the background for the shaker card using various inks and a sponge. For the sand I added dots with my ShinHan markers
M1176 Little Saint Nick Stamp
Z3118 Confetti Embossing Floder
ShinHan Markers
The Hohoho was cut using Cricut Design Space

Thanks for hopping by now hop on over to Miss. Carrie's Creations Blog  to see her amazing artwork!Here are the cards I created.

November 2017 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring November's SOTM, which is Through the Year, a set of 28 stamps.  This set is great for those school pictures.  

If you have come here from Michelle Loncar's Blog  you are on the right path!  This month we have close to 20 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations.  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.....

I wanted to see if I could make a card using this set and here is what I created: 

I used the following:
S1711 Through the Year SOTM
Z3332 Prickly Pear Stamp set
Z2832 Pewter Stamp Pad
Z3132 Watercolor Set
Z3366 Silver Foil Paper
1385 Daisy White Cardstock

The Silver Foil paper does not show very well in the photo but is pretty in real life.  I used the watercolors to color the cake.  The Happy Birthday is from retiring stamp set Prickly Pear.
