February 2010 CTMH Product Spotlight Blog Hop

Welcome to another Close to My Heart Product Spotlight Blog Hop!  This month we are spotlighting the stamp set D1346 – You Rock.

Products used are all CTMH:
Originals Card Confidence Program
Floral Tapestry Paper Packet (sorry I think this one is retired but it’s a great use if you have it!)
You Rock stamp set
Olive and Twilight inks
sponge dauber

This is my attempt at a masculine card.  I used bitty brads on the guitar and I can’t decide if that was a good idea or not but I just couldn’t leave it along without adding some embellishments.  It may be hard to see from the photo but I made the guitar two-tone by inking my stamp first with olive ink and then adding some twilight with the sponge dauber.  I distressed the sentiment square with the edge of my scissors.  I used one of the stamps to create a pattern on the green paper and inked around the edges of the card with twilight.

Now visit Helen’s Blog next to continue your journey on our blog hop!

  1. I love the bitty brads in the guitar. They looked so natural to me that I didn’t even notice them until I read your description.

  2. Love it Wendy! What a fantastic job. The brads definetely add something to the card and I love the use of the colors.

  3. I think I do have some Floral Tapestry paper left – works great with this stamp set. Great job!
