Welcome to the September 2010 Close to My Heart Spotlight Blog Hop.  For this month’s blog hop we are featuring Dimensional Elements (DE), also known as chipboard.  What I like about the Close to My Heart DE is that they are white which makes them so easy to color with ink and keep the true color!

Supplies used are all CTMH: Twitterpated Level 2 Paper Packet, Twitterpated Level 2 My Stickease Assortment, Chocolate Cardstock, DE Simple Alphabets (lowercase), Chocolate Ink, Journaling Jots stamp set, and Designer Ribbon Rounds Ricrac Collection.

Layout Challenge #71 of 210.

This was a quick and easy layout.  That is a great advantage to using the My Stickease.  They really dress up a layout without a lot of time and effort.  I sponged Chocolate Ink on my DE letters to add the color.  One trick I have learned is: when using a sponge or foam tool to add ink color to your DE – twist or rub!  It works so much better than dabbing the ink, which takes forever.  You will be amazed at how much quicker the color appears!

Many of the Dimensional Elements are on the retired list so if there are any of these listed below that you want I would recommend ordering them asap because they are only available while supplies last:
Z1115 Dimensional Elements Simple Numbers
Z1019 Dimensional Elements Fresh Shapes
Z1139 Dimensional Elements Perennials

What a fun layout! Those stickers are adorable. I will have to try twisting while inking 🙂 Thanks for the tip.

Cute layout, would not have thought to use Twitterpated on Disney pages! I didn’t think of twisting the sponge on, I found dabbing took too long so I just rub it straight onto my ink pad and yes I do get inky fingers.
