This month for our Use Your Stash Blog Hop we are using Zip Strips. These are the 1/2-inch strips that you cut off the top of the B&T Duos (patterned papers). I love that CTMH has added this to their papers because Zip Strips are great! Hop through to find a variety of uses for them!
This hop is a circle; if you have just started simply continue until you make your way back here; if you have already started, you should be coming from Janet McCormick.
Supplies used: Skylark Paper Packet, Cardstock (Sweet Leaf & Chocolate), Cocoa ink, Quantrefoil Embossing Folder, and Colonial White Cards & Envelopes.
It’s hard to see from the picture but this card starts with a Colonial White base and the Chocolate Cardstock is matted onto that. I used zip strips to make the layered flower (which I inked to add a bit more dimension) and I also used a zip strip for the sentiment on this card. All strips are from Skylark. I really didn’t want to add any more bulk to the flower so I cut a thin strip of cardstock and used that in the center of the button. Enjoy the hop!

Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop. Today you will see how we’ve used embossing folders. If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Joy McHargue.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Quatrefoil Embossing Folder, Cardstock (Indian Corn Blue, Colonial White), Scalloped Border Punch, Bronze Shimmer Trim, Paper Flowers (retired), Jubilee Paper Packet, and Brown & Tan Sparkles Assortment.
It has been quite awhile since I did anything in my scrapbook room even though I have had the idea for this card for quite some time. My idea started with this pin and grew from there. I am new to using embossing folders and I love how they add so much to a card. I couldn’t help but bling this one up by placing sparkles in all the open embossed shapes. This is a very easy card to replicate and is perfect for many different occasions (Birthday, Thank You, Mother’s Day)
