Welcome to the Close to My Heart ShinHan Marker Blog Hop!  We will be featuring the new ShinHan Markers now offered by Close to My Heart.  These are high-quality, alcohol-based markers.  This hop is a circle so if you are starting here, continue until you make your way back.  If you have already started, you should be coming from my upline Tina Lovell.

Beautiful Day Card by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all CTMH unless otherwise noted: White Daisy Cards & Envelopes, Lagoon Heart Washi Tape, Capture the Day stamp set, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, ShinHan Markers (Leaf Green, Peony Purple, Cerulean Blue Light, Marigold, and Tender Pink), and StazOn Jet Black Ink.

This was a fun card to make and it turned out very colorful!  The Washi Tape was place on White Daisy Cardstock, trimmed, and then stamped with StazOn Ink.

TIP: These markers will bleed through your cardstock so make sure that you are coloring on a separate piece of paper that will be attached to your work.  If you want to color directly on your cards as I have here, then another option is to line the inside of the card.

Now hop on over and see what Paige Dolecki has created!

My letter T is Triangles and Toys.  So I don’t have the title done yet.  It’s late, I’ve got a headache, and I have to be up early in the morning.  I plan to finish this and get a good picture up asap.

July 4 Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart unless noted: Key to My Heart Paper Packet (retired), Juniper ink, Vogue Alphabet Stamp Set, Colonial White Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Washi Tape (retired), and Bazzill Really Big Brads.

If you’ve been using Close to My Heart for awhile, there is a good chance that you’ve accumulated one of these large rolls of Colonial White Grosgrain Ribbon along the way.  Of course, it will work with any ribbon. :-)  This is a great way to use it up.  I just love making flowers using ribbon with this technique.  All you have to do is make a loop, attach it to a brad, and continue looping until you are finished.  I also used the ribbon for the number 4 in my title.  It’s a good thing we are using our stash for this because as I was looking for a letter set to stamp the title I found the Vogue Stamp Set and went  – wait a minute, that’s one I’ve been wanting!  Here I already had it and didn’t know so I better use it!!  And I do love it!

Now hop on over to Casandra Bennett!

Family Layout by Wendy Kessler
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Sweet Home Paper Packet (retired) and Sweet Home Stickease (retired).
Sketches from My Little Sketch Book and 52 Sketches 52 Weeks.

I used the Sweet Home Paper Packet and Stickease for the letter S.  I just love the Stickease by Close to My Heart.  They are cardstock stickers so they have a nice thickness and they coordinate with the paper packets.  They make it very quick and easy to finish a layout.  You can leave them as is, add some dimension with popup dots, or embellish them with glitter, buttonssparkles, etc.

This is your final stop.  I hope you have enjoyed the hop.  Join us again next Saturday, September 27 for the letter T!
