Stargazer Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stargazer Blog Hop!  We will be showcasing the Stargazer paper collection with various projects created by talented Close to My Heart consultants.  If you are visiting from HALEY'S blog then you are on the right track.

I just love this little astronaut in the Stargazer cardmaking stamp set and had to use him on a card.  The inspiration came from one of Close to My Heart's newest idea books, Make it From Your Heart volume 4.   Read on for more details or hop along to CAROL'S blog.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Make it From Your Heart idea book!  It is amazing for inspiration.  It includes the recipe with the cutting guide and 2 ideas using the pattern.  Pattern 1 is where I found the inspiration for this card.  

Using the Stargazer Cardmaking Stamp Set and thin cut bundle I cut out the astronaut and stamped with black memento ink.  I colored him in with Barely Beige, Warm Gray, and Mahogany Shin Han markers.  I stamped the ink blot using the Splash of Color stamp set and Pewter ink.  The sentiment is stamped in Sapphire ink and mounted on Poppy Cardstock.  I finished off the card with some Stargazer dots.


Thank you for hopping by!

Chelsea Gardens Blog Hop

Welcome to our Chelsea Gardens Blog Hop!  We will be showcasing the Chelsea Gardens Paper Collection with various projects created by talented Close to My Heart consultants.  If you are visiting from Debi's blog then you are on the right track.

There was a discussion on a Facebook group of what to do with the cut apart cards in the Close to My Heart paper packets.  I saw it as a challenge and set out to make cute cards using only the cut apart card sheet in the Chelsea Gardens paper packet.   These 3 cards were the result with only 1 card left over.  No stamping!  I added a few accents and that's it!  Fast and easy!  Read on for the details or hop along to RaNae's Blog.

This is how I did it:
Card #1 (on the left)
I used the gray stripe and polka dot.  Not trimming, just attached to my card.  The zip strip is the one you will find on the cut apart card.  You get 2 butterflies to work with since these cards are double sided!  I added some Chelsea Garden Dots for an accent and used the clear shimmer brush on the butterfly.

Card #2 (middle)
I loved the flower card, but the sentiment didn't really work for a card.  I covered it up with the bluish green card with lace.  Cut out the other butterfly and used on this card.  I added some dots and used the clear shimmer brush on the butterfly.

Card #3 (on the right)
Cut a little off the fern card.  Use the true story card as a mat.  Cut down the flowering can and layered on the true story card.  I used a little cream ribbon around the watering can card.

These cards really came together so fast and easy!  I challenge you to grab some of those cut apart card sheets you have sitting around and create some awesome cards with them!
