Penelope ~ Stampers With An Attitude (Blog Hop)

This month, our Stampers With An Attitude team is sharing projects created using the papers of Penelope, or boxes created using Close To My Heart products.       

If you have come here from the HeARTful Stamper 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.    


Since the chick paper in the Penelope kit is so adorable, I just had to use it again to create another card.  The sketch is Upper Level Focus from the Originals Card Confidence Program, and the sentiment is found in the Happy To Be Friends stamp set.  Silver Foil Tape and a few Playful Puffies add a bit of embellishment.  

Now "Hop" on over to Kim's Papercrafts for more artwork using Penelope papers, or boxes created using Close To My Heart products.

Black + White + Red + Share the Love

This week the Heart 2 Heart Challenges and Color My Heart Color Dare blogs have a joint challenge, using Share the Love with the colors black, white, and red.   


Are you old enough to remember using a rotary dial telephone?  Well I sure am, and love this image available in the special Share the Love stamp set.  This stamp set is only available to order during the month of February, and $7 of each sale will be donated to Operation Smile.  

What is black and white and red all over?  An entry for Color My Heart Color Dare #180.  Using a stripe and a dotted paper from the La Vie En Rose kit along with Cranberry ink and red embellishments + stamp images from the Share the Love stamp set for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge = a nostalgic card.

Stamp of Approval

Spent the day visiting and creating with a friend, and created this fun, friendship card following this week's CAS(E) this Sketch (CTS158) blog.  The stamp image from Stamps of Approval is embossed using Silver embossing powder, and papers are from the Regatta kit.  A standard paper punch was used to create the curved notches in the ends of the paper strips, and two Triangle Stud embellishments were used to mimic the triangle design of the stamped image.

Share The Love

Welcome to our Share The Love Blog Hop, brought to you by the same ladies who participate in the monthly Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop.  Close To My Heart has created this special stamp set so you can "share the love" this February and help support Operation Smile.  CTMH will donate $7 of the proceeds from each Share The Love stamp set sold to Operation Smile.  This organization provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates for children all over the world.        

If you arrived here from Living My Given Life, you are hopping through our circle of Close To My Heart consultants sharing their projects.   


This week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches (FMS222) was perfect to use with the Share The Love stamp set.  The typewriter is embossed with a mixture of both Gold and Silver embossing powder, and the sentiments are stamped using Cocoa ink.  Some pieces of paper from the Sangria kit and a bit of Shimmer Trim complete the card.        



Since the bold colors of the Sangria kit are some of my favorites, this card is being linked up to the "Favorite Paper Pack" challenge for February on the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog.
