Treats of Friendship

Okay..can I just say I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Treats of Friendship stamp set and the Blossom and Jackson Papers from the Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book!!

I met with my friends and fellow cult members for our monthly play day. These a some of the cards I made....


I love donuts...especially Krispy Kreme Glazed!!!!  These donuts turned out so cute and yummy.  They are colored with my ShinHan markers and I applied Liquid Glass to the sprinkles.  I stamped the background with the Assorted Edges Stamps set. I also had to add the doodle border....lovin these borders lately!!  Below are cards I made by paper piecing the cups, adding my doodle borders and then adding different details to each.  









I had so much fun making these!!!

Seasonal Expressions 2 Bloghop

Oh boy....I am so excited about the Seasonal Expression 2 Catalog ...there are so many beautiful new products. 



There are over 40 of us Close to My Heart consultants that are taking part in this hop show so off the new products.  So grab some coffee and hop along.  If you came here from Priscilla Gotham's Blog you are on the right track.

Here is what I made using some of the new products...



I used the Blossom Paper Pack, and the Treats of Friendship Stamp set (LOVE this set).  I paper pieced the cup and colored the coffee and the heart with my Shinhan markers.  I used the Marvy Uchida LePen to make a whimsical frame around my stamped image.  

On this card I used one the Hostess Exclusive Stamp sets called Paper Bird, it is a beautiful set with a bird, butterfly and heart in text.  I stamped the butterfly with VersaMark and embossed with our clear embossing powder and then sponged on Crystal Blue ink and edged it with Smoothie ink.  I embossed the sentiment with white powder and used the Blossom Assortment Butterfly.  I used a Signo Uniball pen to draw the trail of the butterfly.  Below are the insides of the cards.
