Everything ABC’s Blog Hop (U)

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter U. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their U element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda Norman – Scrappy Therapy.  If you came from Lauren Moore – CTMH Craftings then you’re on the right track!

Flower Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies are all by Close to My Heart: Elemental Paper Packet (retired), Unity Stamp set (retired), Sorbet ink, Cardstock (Pacifica, Colonial White, and Sorbet), Sparkle Flourishes, and Cricut Collections.  MLSB Sketch

For the letter U, I have chose the Unity stamp set and some Unused/Useless paper.  How often do you cut a large diecut and throw the “scrap” from the outside away?  I used that scrap as the base for this layout!  I’m not sure if it was Art Philosophy (most likely) or Artbooking that I used.  I added the stamped flowers in the scallops to unify it with the page.  The flowers are Cricut-cut and popped up for dimension.  The center of the flowers are stamped and fussy-cut.  I also added a bit of doodling around the sorbet flowers for some extra detail.

Your next stop on our Everything ABC’S blog Hop is Jenny Gilbert – Jen’s Creative Classroom.

CTMH ShinHan Marker Blog Hop

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!

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

Halloween Hat

This Halloween witch’s hat featured in the new Annual Inspirations is absolutely gorgeous!  I don’t know if I could make it and give to my 3-year-old but I could for the older girls or, hey, why not just make it for myself!
