CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Color Your World

Welcome to this month's technique hop where we are featuring "coloring". Close to My Heart has quite a few stamp sets that allow for coloring which is very popular trend right now. So hop through all 11 of our blogs to see how you can "color" with colored pencils, markers, watercolor paints, or possibly even some paper pieces.

If you are here from Jen's Messy Studio then you are on the right track.

For my creation, I chose to make a card highlighting the Calypso paper pack along with the Word Balloons stamp set from the Artiste Cricut cartridge.

I chose to add some color by using different pieces of the paper pack as well as added color to the stamped image using 3 different watercolors. And finally I added some more color with the shimmer trim - the yellow and pink were made by using our ShinHan markers on the white shimmer trim tape. I love how we can make any color shimmer tape we want by using our markers!


Now hop on over to Melissa's Blog for another amazing creation as well as the complete list of participants.

CTMH Paper Blog Hop - Calypso

Welcome to our Blog Hop this month where we are featuring the Calypso pack in our artwork.  

If you are coming from Katy's Blog, you are on the right track.  You can find a complete list of participants at Melissa's Blog.

I am trying to get a good stash of birthday cards and when I saw this paper I knew I wanted to make at least one birthday card from it.  I love how it turned out!!!!

I also wanted to use one of our Cricut cartridges that will soon be retiring at the end of July as well as one of our M size stamps (which are only $2.95).  The cupcake is cut from the Artiste cartridge using 2 of the patterned papers from the Calypso pack as well as a piece of chocolate yardstick for the base! Chocolate cupcakes are my favorite!!! I then used the balloon stamp from the coordinating stamp set that comes with the Artiste cartridge to add to the card as well. 

Oh and the sprinkles are courtesy of our ShinHan markers.

Now hop on over to Cathy's Blog for another fun and amazing Calypso creation!!!!
