Blog Hops with Heart - Hopping with Sangria and Gratitude

I am so grateful to join in on this great blog hop with such talented CTMH consultants!

Here's our blog hop list:

Amie Kiger 
Kelly Janes 
Becca Whitham 
Shelly Nemitz   
Stephanie Davis 
Amy McVey (you're here!)

You should have come here from Stephanie's blog.

On to my project:

I loved the Sangria paper pack from the moment that I saw it.
It's gorgeous colors and designs caught my attention right away!

Supplies used:
Gold thread and my sewing machine (not CTMH)

When making this card, I used one of the card designs from Make It From Your Heart Vol. 1 How-To Program for inspriration.
I stitched the first background paper onto my card base with gold thread and my sewing machine.

I cut out and inked the edges of the chevron pattern paper in Cocoa ink.
I put my desert sand CS piece through my Cuttlebug machine with my Vine Embossing Folder and then swiped the top of the embossed piece with Cocoa ink.

I attached my chevron piece down and then my Gold Shimmer Trim.
I then layered my embossed piece on top.

Finally, I used the rock and roll technique on my pumpkin stamp.
I first inked the stamp up in Sunset ink and then rocked the edges with New England Ivy ink.  I also gently tapped it down once in the New England Ivy ink to pick up a little more green on the inside of the pumpkin.
I then fussy cut out my stamped image and placed it on the top.

I hope you enjoyed my peek at Sangria and Gratitude!
If you are interested in any of the products that I used today, please be sure to check with your CTMH independent consultant.

Glad to Be Crafty Again...

Sorry it's been awhile since my last post, but I had shoulder surgery recently.
But now I'm back and slowly getting crafty.

Last night, I pulled out my distress inks and played with some backgrounds for some 3x4 pocket scrapbooking cards.

I had to pull out this month's Stamp of the Month, Ice Cream Dreams.
I LOVE this stamp set.

Completely adorable!

When making backgrounds, I combined Mermaid Lagoon, Abandoned Coral and Twisted Citron distress inks and it kind of reminded me of a snow cone, so I just had to use the Ice Cream Dream stamp set!

I went on to combine Fired Brick and Fossilized Amber distress inks and came up with the background for this card.

I used the Instalife and Documenting Moments stamp sets for this card.

I will be linking this post up to the Daily Marker for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge 2.
I started this challenge late, but am happy to now be able to join in.
The idea is coloring a project each day.
Be sure to check it out and join in.

Don't forget June is the month for Summer Crush.
Buy a Crush book and assortment pack and get a free coordinating stamp set.

What a fabulous deal, only in the month of June!
And don't forget to pick up your Stamp of the Month, Ice Cream Dreams for only $5 with a $50 purchase or $17.95.

While shopping, be sure to also check out the RETIRING ITEMS on my website.
When they are gone, they are GONE!
