Welcome to our Holiday Expressions New Product Blog Hop! We will be featuring products from the new Close To My Heart Holiday Expressions Book. If you have come here from Jennifer’s Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participants on Melinda’s Blog.
This month we have 24 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do – just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!
I created a card that water colored with our stamp pads on leaves cut from Falling For You Cardmaking Stamp Set + Thin Cuts. I first cut a circle in the card base, so that the embossed sentiment on the inside of the card could be visible on the front of the card, and lightly applied the Gold Shimmer Brush to the front of the card. Then I embossed 3 sets of leaves from the Falling For You Cardmaking stamp set. Using our small round water brush I used ink from the stamp pads to water color the embossed leaves and then cut them out with the thin cuts matching the Falling for You stamps. I then slightly rolled the edges of the leaves to give them dimension, arranged and adhered the leaves around the cut out circle on the front of the card and embellished with bronze sequins.
