Colors of Thanksgiving ~ "Use Your Stash" Blog Hop

We are celebrating the "Colors of Thanksgiving" for the "Use Your StashBlog Hop this month.        

If you have come here from the Moments to Treasureyou are right on track for the "Use Your Stash" Blog Hop.  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one, or visit each blog from the list at the end of this post.  


Just a simple card using papers from the Sangria kit along with an image from the Friend Tree stamp set.  A bit of Gold Foil adds some shimmer, and the card design is Pattern #20 from Make It From Your Heart Volume 2.  The word 'friend' was stamped in Saffron and then again in Poppy ink to give it a bit of dimension. 


Stamping the inside with other images from the Friend Tree stamp set really complete the card.          


Now "Hop" on over to JeniLeigh Designs for more red, white, and blue projects.   

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

White Pines ~ Stampers With An Attitude (Blog Hop)

The Holidays will be arriving soon, and our Stampers With An Attitude team is sharing projects created using the White Pines kit.     

If you have come here from Melinda's If You Bling It  blog, you are on the right path!  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one, or visit each blog from the list at the end of this post.    


Instead of creating something for the Holidays with the White Pines kit, I decided to use some of the beautiful papers to create a fun birthday card.  The sentiment is found in the Birthday Funnies stamp set, which is available as a Hostess Exclusive through the end of the year.  For some embellishment, a flower from the Sangria Assortment was used along with a bit of Glacier Thick Twine.  Inspiration for the card design is Pattern #22 in Make It From Your Heart Volume 1.     

Now "Hop" on over to CatScrapbooking for more artwork using the White Pines paper kit.

Get Back to the Fundamentals (Technique Blog Hop)

For the Technique Blog Hop this month, we are focusing on the Fundamentals line.  The papers have a glossy resist pattern on one side and a bold print on the other with the same design. 


If you arrived from CatScrapbooking, then follow along with the link at the bottom of this post to continue the Technique Blog Hop

Using a piece of Sunset from the Paper Fundamentals Adventure pack as the card base and letters from the Fundamental Adventure Sticker pack, this is a very quick and easy card to create.  A White Enamel Gem was added as a bit of embellishment.     

Please visit Jen's Messy Studio blog for another entry in this month's Technique Blog Hop.

Simply Fundamental

Welcome to our Simply Fundamental Blog Hop, brought to you by the same ladies who participate in the monthly Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop.  Fundamentals from CTMH embrace the best in your creativity, no matter the mood.  The papers can make the most extravagant of layouts with their bold prints, or add subtle grace to quieter pages with their glossy resist patterns.  With colorful stickers and embellishments to coordinate, there's no question that this line has somethig for the crafter in all of us.      

If you arrived here from DAT's My Style, you are hopping through our circle of Close To My Heart consultants sharing their projects spotlighting the Fundamentals products.   


Five of the glossy resist patterns in the Fundamentals Enchantment package are used to create a fun background for the dinosaur image from the Darling Dinos stamp set.  Some ShinHan Touch Twin alcohol markers were used to add bold color to the creature, and he has just a bit of Sparkle to his eye.
