October 2012 Technique Blog Hop – Rock ‘n’ Roll Stamping

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are highlighting the Rock ‘n’ Roll Stamping Technique as shown on page 31 in the Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book.  This is an oldie but a goodie!

This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  So if you are starting here, just continue until you make your way back.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Kindred Heart’s Blog.

Supplies used: Die Cuts With a View Just Dreamy Stack, Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste Collection Kudos stamp set, and Close to My Heart Red Glitter Glitz.

My rock n roll stamping technique is used for the circle border along the center of the page.  I first inked the image in Cranberry, then rolled in Outdoor Denim before stamping.  The glitter glitz was used to create the dots and the border, how cool is that!

I used this sketch from Sketches in Thyme:

August 2012 CTMH Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Monochromatic

WELCOME!  I’m so glad you are joining us for our “Use Your Stash Blog Hop”.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Cherri Hardcastle’s Blog.  If this is your first stop, continue through until you make your way back here.  This month’s theme is monochromatic (using one color).

Supplies used: DCWV paper, CTMH Glitz Glitter Gel – Green, Just Blooms Paper Shapes – Flutter, and American Crafts Thickers Chipboard Alphabet Stickers.

I’m not much for monochromatic, however it is a great choice for busy photos.  My photos has so much color that by using one color in my layout it works well.  I used the Glitter Glitz (which I love!) to add some sparkle directly to the page.  I also used it to “color” my butterflies.  Here’s a closeup:

Now hop on over to Judy Faye Garner’s Blog for more ideas on using up your stash.

Here is a list of participants:


Miranda Layout

Supplies used: Unknown papers from my stash, Petaloo Flowers, CTMH Keepsake Alphabet, CTMH Cotton Candy ink, CTMH Cocoa ink, CTMH Twinkle Brads (retired).

I created the two-tone title by first inking the letter with Cotton Candy ink, then I used a sponge dauber to apply Cocoa ink to the bottom part of the letter, then stamped.

Sweet Layout

Supplies used: Doodlebug Designs Sweet Cakes paper & stickers, and CTMH Glitter Glitz.

This was a simple page that came together quickly by using coordinating products.

Stamp Sunday #16 – Authentic

D1401 Authentic

This a really great stamp set that I had yet to use.  As soon as I ran across it in my stash I had the perfect photo to use with it.  The set has a lot of images that can be used on any page, like a corner image and a couple journaling boxes, plus a lot of little words!

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Florentine Paper Packet, Authentic stamp set, Cocoa ink, Twilight ink, Twilight Marker, Vanilla Cream ink, and Bronze Glitz Glitter Gel.  March 2012 Page Map.
