Stamp of the Month Blog Hop- You've Got a Friend

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for May 2014- You've Got a Friend

If you have come here from Krista's Blog, you're on the right path.  This month we have over 50 amazing artists' blogs for you to visit.


This set of 5 sentiments is SO FUN!  You'll be able to create all kinds of artwork with this one!  

This weekend I started working with this set "You've Got a Friend" and got on a roll.  I created several cards that I want to share with you :)

You Are the Best:
This first one is created using Lollydoodle papers and Flamingo dots.

This second one features Honey Triangle Washi Tape, Black Shimmer Trim, Red Washi tape & Metallic Bakers Twine.

Merci Beaucoup:
On this card, I used Ariana papers and Black Mini Medley.  I stamped the sentiment once in white and trimmed, then again on Sorbet cardstock with black ink and trimmed out just the mustache.  

This card also feautres the same Ariana paper, along with Ariana Grey cardstock that I embossed with the Damask Embossing Folder.  I stamped the sentiment twice on this one again, cut out the second mustache and covered it with black shimmer trim.  

You're the Apply of my Eye
These two cards are very similar!  I used Ariana papers, Ariana Assortment bows, Silver Shimmer trim.  I stamped the bottom of the card using sweet leaf ink and In the Background stamps.  This card base was sweetleaf.  The sentiment was stamped in Ruby ink on Sorbet cardstcock, then backed with white cardstock. 

The card base on this one is White Daisy and the sentiment was stamped on White with Ruby ink.  
*I can't wait to give these to the kids' teachers next week :)
You've Got a Friend in Me:
This last card again uses Ariana Grey cardstock embossed with the Damask Embossing Folder.  I stamped the sentiment in Ruby on Sorbet cardstock.  I added some Silver Shimmer trim. along with some Black & grey Epoxy Dots for some embellishing. 

The May Stamp of the Month- You've Got a Friend in Me is available from May 1-31.  It retails at $17.95, but you can get it for only $5 with your $50 purchase on my website!

The next blogger in our hop is Dana!  I know you will see amazing artwork there.  

Happy Hopping!!!

Stampers with Attitude Blog Hop- Ariana

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!  

The blogger in front of me is Cat at   

The Stampers with an Attitude are excited to show our Ariana Artwork with an Attitude, so here we go.

Today I have FOUR cards to share with you :)

These first two are the same design, with different stamps & papers.

This first one has a base of Outdoor Denim, uses the striped pattern and Joyful Wishes stamp set.   I used Metallic Bakers Twine to embellish. 

This one has a White Daisy base that I embossed with the Striped Embossing folder.  I used the blue "fan" looking pattern on this one.  The stamped sentiment is from a special Consultant only set.  The shapes are cut from Art Philosophy.  I used Red Shimmer Trim and some bling to embellish.  


This next one is scraplifted from Jody.   I used the floral pattern & striped pattern on this one.  The Crystal Blue base is embossed with the Striped Embossing folder.  I cut some bows with Artiste, and the butterflies were cut using a punch.  The bow in the middle is from the Ariana Assortment.  This card is stamped with Happy Birthday from a retired stamp set. 

This final card is a scraplift of Dawn.  I used Kraft as my card base and the green geometric patterned paper.  I cut a polaroid type frame from Artbooking to make the "basket" and eggs from Art Philosophy.  The eggs are covered with washi tape- Lagoon houndstooth, Honey triangles & Smoothie striped.  The grass was cut from Artiste. I used a bow from the Ariana Assortment and White Metallic Bakers Twine.  The sentiment is from Easter Wishes.

The next blogger on the hop is Pamela 

Be sure to leave lots of love to the team :)

How would you like to create a fabulous album, full of beautifully created layouts from the CTMH Artbooking collection???  

Here is Round 2 of A Year of Artbooking!!!

Every other month, in 2014, I will have layout kits available to purchase.  These layouts have all been created using Artbooking, some will be original creations, some inspired by CTMH's Artbooking is Easy series, and some created by CTMH. 

At the end of 2014, you will have an album full of Artbooking Layouts!  As a bonus.... anyone who purchases ALL of the kits in 2014, will get an album of their choice at 1/2 price at the end of the year :)

Layout #2 Happy Spring

Some detail of the stamping.
