CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop – Relay Race

This month we are doing something a little different for our hop.  We are doing a relay race.  For this one you will need to go to Nikka’s Blog to start.  There will be an explanation there of how it works.

Here is Vicki’s beautiful card that I worked from:

I chose to take the colors from her card along with the butterflies and incorporate those into my layout:

Supplies used: Close to My Heart (CTMH) Miracle Paper Pack,  CTMH Color-Ready Kraft Borders, Making Memories Photo Decor chipboard, CTMH Colonial White Cardstock, Cricut Cherry Limeade cartridge, CTMH Opaque Pearl Adhesive Gems, CTMH Cotton Candy ink, CTMH Beautiful Butterflies stamp set, and Fiskars border punch.

Now move on to Kristie’s Blog!

Sophia Workshop Cards

These were a bit time consuming but gorgeous!  The cards are part of the Sophia Workshop Kit (available through July 31, 2011).

Makin’ a Splash Layout

Supplies used: KI Memories Surprise Collection paper, Making Memories chipboard flower, Fiskars border punch, Provo Craft alpha rubons, and K&Company adhesive chipboard.

This was my layout from the March Challenge at Scrap Our Stash that I forgot to post.  The  challenge was “Spring Cleaning” – meaning dig something out from your stash, dust it off, and use it!  I pulled out all the stops with this layout.  Everything I used is old, old, old and I literally had to dust off my border punch!  I used a sketch from My Little Sketch Book.  I just love sketches!  I’ve found some great sites lately and plan to use them more.  They make scrapbooking so quick and easy!

Glittery Valentine Heart Card

Well, it is yet another snow day here today.  The kids are playing nicely so I am going to do my own playing.  My goal for the day is to see just how many challenges I can complete so I am hoping for multiple posts (the organizer in me likes to keep things filed and neat).  So here we go…

Products used: Autumn Leaves Rhonna Farrer heart and starts stamp set, Fiskars border punch, Colorbok glitter paper, Target Dollar Spot pattern paper, Ranger Stickles (cotton candy), Doodlebug Design sugar coating glitter, CTMH bubblegum marker, CTMH ink (ocean & bubblegum) and unknown ribbon.

Challenges:
Inspired Blueprints Card Sketch #39
Simon Says – Punch It!
Belli Challenge #83 – Hearts
Crafty Creations #51 – Valentines or Hearts
Pretty Pink Papertake
Creative Card Crew – Punch It
Inky Impressions Challenge #28

I found this stamp set in my stash (twice!) so I thought it was a good starting point.  I outlined the inside of the small hearts with a marker before adding the stickles.  This seemed to change the color a bit for more contrast which turned out better.  Since you can’t have too much glitter I added more to the top of the stickles.  I had fun making this glittery card!
