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.
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!
If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participants here.

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring Septembers’s Stamp of the Month, which is Family is Forever, a set of 7 stamps. If you have come here from Morgan Vogt’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.
Products used are all Close to My Heart: Family is Forever Stamp Set (September SOTM), Inks (Cranberry, Olive, and Chocolate), Olive Cardstock, Sponge Daubers, and Colonial White Cards and Envelopes.
I think the tree on this stamp set is so beautiful! I first inked it in Chocolate Ink, then using a sponge dauber and Olive Ink, I applied green to the leaves and stamped. Next, I stamped the tree in Cranberry Ink on a scrap paper, cut out the hearts, and attached to the tree with glue dots. I stamped the word LOVE with Cranberry Ink and fussy cut. Leaving a small outline around the hearts and the word gave it a little bit of a shadow when attached with glue dots and makes them appear 3D without the dimension.
Now “Hop” on over to Peachy Iris G. Lamb’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the consultants’ blogs to get some great crafting ideas! Remember, the Family is Forever Stamp Set is only available until September 31st! When you place a $50 order from my website, you can get this stamp set at a discounted price of only $5!

My cards: I changed the sentiments on my cards so they are birthday themed instead of thank you. You can dig into your stash and find some stamps that work or purchase some new ones. The stamp sets I used are: B1467 You Mean the World to Me, B1462 Lovely Birthday, and D1510 4 My Friend (retired).
As I was creating this last card, I really liked it just as it was before adding the extra strips to the bottom. Here is my alternate card:
