*Random Acts of Cardness* Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Random Acts of Cardness S1909

If you've just arrived here from
then you are on the correct path.

Today I'm sharing two standard-size cards I created
using the SOTM and paper from the brand-new
EVERY LITTLE THING collection (See it here!)

Notice that I used some parts/pieces from 

the Picture My Life card pack (x7248E), as well as, 
patterns from the regular paper packet.
I've also used the vellum die-cuts (z3521)
and colored them with a Mint Shimmer Brush (z4225),
although I'm sure that any color, especially the NEW 
Julep (color of the year!) Shimmer Brush would
work beautifully as well! If you've never tried
making "splatters" by flicking your shimmer brush
at your artwork, then you really should TRY IT!
It's so much fun and very addictive!
I pretty much want to splatter on everything lately! lol.

*From Me to You* Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
From Me to You S1908



If you've just arrived here from
then you are on the correct path.

Today I'm sharing two standard-size cards I created
using the SOTM and paper from the CRAFT ON collection
(X7245B). The card on the right was inspired by UCLA's
school colors (blue & gold), as I will be giving it to my
daughter Isabelle, who will be attending UCLA this Fall.
Isabelle also has a birthday this month, so I hope she
doesn't mind getting the cute card on the left also, lol.


This stamp set includes such a great variety of
so many different frequently used sentiments,
that it was hard to choose just a few for these projects.
I hope you are inspired to give this stamp set a try!

My Convention Swap Cards (featuring Share the Joy stamps and thin cuts)!



Last-minute production of cards to swap at the CTMH Convention is now in progress!! I’m making 30 of these birthday swing cards, so why didn’t I choose a much simpler and less time-consuming design?!! 😂 I’ll never learn, lol. It’s crunch time baby and I have lots of coloring to do! I still have laundry and packing to do also, and I’m bound and determined to be ready to leave early tomorrow morning. Let’s do this!! ❤️ #ctmh #ctmhconv2019 #celebrate #makeitfromyourheart #ctmhleader #ctmhthincuts #swingcard #ctmhsharethejoy #ctmhtruelove #utahprovobound #stampwithjencreativefriends

The images are all stamped with an Intense Black ink pad (z4189) and colored with our ShinHan Touch Twin Markers (Carmine, Marine Blue, Leaf Green, and Sap Green).
