Blog Hop: Thin Cuts

Woo Hoo!  Close to My Heart has a great sale going on right now!  All  thin cuts or stamp set, thin cut combos are 25% off! 


You are at a stop on a big circle of blogs that will feature amazing artwork using the CTMH thin cut products!  Now if you have arrived here from Krista's blog, then you have seen some fabulous artwork and are on the right track.  Next you will be traveling on to Gina's Blog to see her wonderful creations.  But first...take a look!

The set I chose to create with was the Dreamin' Big card making stamps and coordinating thin cuts. 

Bringing a playful childhood past time to mind, I captured these sweet little butterflies in a Mason jar. 



When working with the thin cuts, you can pre- cut your images and then stamp on them because the stamps and blocks are clear and you can align them perfectly.   OR you can stamp on your cardstock, place your thin cut over the image, adhere gently with a piece of washi tape (another great use for the stash of washi tape you have), and then cut them.  Good bye fussy cutting!  Perfect outlines every time. 

Now this is not the only set that is on sale this month.  To see the other sets that qualify for the 25% discount, visit your consultant's website or if you don't have a consultant, stop by my website here.  And remember when you make a purchase of $50, you can get the cutest tea cup stamp set for $5.  This all only in March. 

Remember to move along to Gina's Blog to see what she has created!  Thanks for stopping in.

Blog Hop: March Stamp of the Month Tea-rrific

Keep on steeping!  You are going to love this stamp of the month!  For the tea enthusiast, this is an adorable set to add to your stamp images.  For everyone else...it is still adorable! 


The blog hop is a big circle with stops at 30 different consultant websites.  If you have arrived here from Gina's Blog, you are continuing through the circle.  After you have viewed my artwork, you will be hopping over to Tammy's Blog.  And if for some reason you get lost along the way, you can find the list of all participants on Melinda's Blog


Were tea parties a part of your childhood?  This set brings back so many fond memories of little cups of tea with my girls and their dolls. It also reminds me of Mary Engelbreit so her artwork was the inspiration for the color scheme I chose for my "tea party".




I paired the stamp with Dreamin' Big Paper packet, Black cardstock, and Black shimmer trim.  I used the Shin Han markers to color the tea cups:  Carmine, Warm Grey 4, Vivid Green, Golden Yellow.

The Cricut cut is from the Flower Market cartridge size 3".

This stamp set is available for $5 with a $50 purchase and can be ordered on your consultants website.  You can also purchase for $17.95.  If you do not have a consultant with Close to My Heart, I am happy to help you or you are welcome to purchase from my website.

I will be using this stamp set through out the month of March in my workshops and gatherings.  Follow my Facebook page to see more artwork in the future.

Now remember to continue on in the circle to Tammy's Blog.

Enjoy a cup of tea!
