Welcome to this month’s Technique Blog Hop. This month we are stamping on different mediums besides paper.
If you have already started the hop you should be coming from Debi, otherwise continue through until you make your way back here.
Originally, I had planned to use the My Creations Muslin Drawstring Bags for this project until I realized that I didn’t have any. So, I went digging through my supplies and found these cork shapes. I used my new favorite Archival Black ink to stamp on them to give a nice dark image. For the smaller black stars, I stamped them until they were completely covered with ink (or you could use a background stamp or the back of a stamp). The camera-shaped cork piece does have a circle in the middle that punches out but it was easy to keep together when I took it off the sheet and attach to my card.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: ProPlayer Paper Packet, Color-Ready Midtown Cork Shapes, Take Note Stamp Set (included in the Artbooking Cricut Collection), Slate Striped Twist Ties, and Archival Black Ink.

Welcome to another New Product Blog Hop! If you’ve already started, you are coming from Katy Taylor.
Close to My Heart has two new Workshop On the Go Card Kits – Laughing Lola and Frosted. They are also at a new price of $24.99. I just love these card kits and they are great for both beginners and experts. My favorite of the two is the Frosted Cardmaking Kit so that’s what I am sharing with you today. The kit gives instructions for a total of 15 cards (5 each of 3 different designs).
I always like closeups so here are additional pictures of each card individually:
Once you have finished the cards, you can use the stamp set to create more cards or use it on scrapbook pages or other projects.
Now move on to your next stop – Laurie Newton!
