I love this stamp set. It is so versatile! The sentiments can be used on a scrapbook layout or a card.
I am in the process of using this stamp set on one of my granddaughter;s layouts but haven't finished it quite yet however I wanted to show folks how this stamp set could be used on cards.
I made 4 different cards. So here they are;



On this card I used a number of expressions stamped in Champagne for a tone on tone look and the 'You and Me' was stamped with Close to My Heart black archival ink. I love the look and it's such a simple card. I cut the card using Art Philosophy.


 


On the next card I used the square stamp with the mini chevrons to create my own background. I sued  Close To My Heart :Champagne ,saddle and honey ink. The metal Artisan studs(Z1816) are also from Close to My Heart. I thought this card could be a male themed card.




On the third card I used one of the mini circle lined stamps and did random stamping on the card front using Close to My Heart Pear,Honey and smoothie for the back ground. I used the Close to My Heart scallop punch for the middle border and edged it with  Close to my Heart -green glitter paper. I used the happy Birthday sentiment from another of our Stamp sets called ,Your own kind of wonderful D1627. Again I stamped the Date in  Close to My Heart black Archival ink to make it stand out.


Foe the last card I used the Mini Flag to create a small banner across the top,  Close to My Heart Glacier extra thick twine Z3039,Coral Reef sequins(love these!)Z3042, Shimmer Trim- Teal( CTMH),Pear cardstock. Yes stamped the You and Me in Black Archival ink.

                                          
                                        Here is more artwork done by the folks at Close to My Heart.

I love this stamp set. A number of my customers have been "itching" to get this stamp. I usually use the Stamp of the Month on my Scrapbook pages but wanted to to do something a little different by trying out some "wet embossing" and creating a variety of cards. I used up scraps of paper left over from a number of layouts completed over the last few months. Great way to use the "stash" of little pieces of card stock and patterned paper.

Get it before it's Gone Team Brae-er Hop

 Welcome to our Team blog hop. This month we are focusing on products from the Seasonal Expressions 1 book that will be retiring as of March 31st. Not everything is going though. How can you tell? Well look beside the product description and if you see a small clock, sadly they will no longer be available but you still have a few weeks to order these products.
 If you have come from  Heather Steeve's blog then you are in the right spot!
 I decided to focus on the things I love the most, embellishments! I especially love the "puffies" found on page 35.
 I used Z3037 on these cute cards. This stamp set will still continue to  be available for the rest of this year. (Love ya Silly- B1470)


 I made these cards a few weeks ago for my Granddaughter and her Pre-school friends. They are so easy to make but I think the embellishments make them !






Love these little guys. Make a great birthday card for any age !
Thanks for viewing ! I hope you have another look through the Cataloge and place an order with one of our consultants. Here is my link.

Now please head over to the very talented Sherri Ballantyne's blog

Here we go!



I don't know about you but when I think of March, I think of Spring,light pastel colours,greenery, and flowers. The first project is something I have wanted to scrapbook for the last year. It's a picture taken of our Granddaughter when she was only a week old. My middle daughter took these pictures of her tiny feet. She is almost two years old now and has a fascination with taking her "sockies" off and playing with her toes. I chose these pictures because it makes me happy every time I look at it.






Choose Happy





 Products Used:















 My Second Project is a quick card I made using some images from the March Stamp of the Month set, a card from the Hopscotch Picture My Life Kit as well as a bird from the  Happy Birds stamp set,(C1600). I used a few of our Twin Touch Shin Han Markers to colour the card.
