Seasonal Expressions 1 New Product Blog Hop!!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
Seasonal Expressions 1
New Product Blog Hop!

Today, 24 consultant artists are sharing artwork
they've created using NEW products
featured in the Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog
from Close to my Heart!

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

 The first stamp set I fell in love with when I opened my 
Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog was this set (above):
Stuck on You (C1643) with it's coordinating Thin Cuts (Z3200).
Because I live in the "High Desert" of California and we see a lot more cactus here than other kinds of plant-life, I immediately knew that I had to have these adorable stamps!

 Here is the standard-size card I created with this stamp set and the thin cuts,
also featuring our NEW Penelope Paper Packet (X7207B).
I felt like the colors/patterns included in this paper packet
were the perfect combination (Crystal Blue, Honey, Pear, and
Thistle, PLUS I added Saddle cardstock and ink) to make my
cactus scene colorful and somewhat realistic looking.

 If you'd like to learn more about exactly how to use this
stamp set with our NEW thin cuts dies, you will want to
watch this how-to video:

Now you can continue on with the hop and be

inspired by more creative artwork and ideas 
by visiting MARIE's BLOG next. 
Enjoy the hop!!

Fun card, Jen! Although I don't live in the southwest and see cactus plants very often I must admit that seeing them on your card makes me want to order them soon. Thanks for being part of the Seasonal Expressions 1 Blog Hop and inspiring me today!
