April SOTM Blog Hop (Color Your Life)

Welcome to our April SOTM Blog Hop!  We will be featuring Color Your Life stamp set. This set of 12 stamps coordinates very well with the Gimme Some Sugar collection.

If you have come here from Melissa Robinson’s Blog , you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.  To visit each blog for some great ideas just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go! 

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Color Your Life Stamp Set (April 2018 SOTM), ShinHan Markers (Tender Pink, Pastel Green, Turquoise Blue), Whimsy Fundamentals Paper PacketBlack Cardstock, Clear SparklesMarvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen, Archival Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad, and Make It From Your Heart Volume 4.

I used the letters from the words in this stamp set to create a new word: Friend. I used the ShinHan Markers for the coloring but next time I will use colored pencils. Other words I came up with that I will probably use at a later time are: Graceful, Dance, Guidance, Original, Darling, Colorful, and Angel.

Now “Hop” on over to Brandi Robinson’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas!
