Clouds and Last Week for Seasonal Expressions 1

A few days ago I participated in the Cardmaking WYW Blog Hop. A couple of hoppers asked how I created the clouds on a card. I am sorry I did not get a chance to post more information earlier – it has been a busy week. This is the card I created for the blog hop.


I used the stamp sets from Workshops Your Way® Hello Baby Cardmaking Kit (G1123) and Workshops Your Way® Here for You Cardmaking Kit (G1124) to create the card. Both kits are available until April 30 or while supplies last.

If you are interested in creating a scene with clouds, I hope the photos and information below help you create a similar scene using masking, rock and roll and the double-stamping technqiues.

I started by stamping the cloud on a sheet of copy paper. Then I cut out the cloud making sure there were no white edges remaining; you may want to trim a millimeter or two inside the stamped edge. I used copy paper because it is thinner and will help prevent keeping the stamp raised and leaving a white edge where one cloud should be behind another cloud. I place a dab of adhesive on the back of the mask to hold it in place while stamping the adjacent cloud – just be sure to not push too hard which will make it difficult to raise the mask or use temporary adhesive.


The next step is to decide where you want the foreground cloud to be and stamp it. I inked the stamp with Whisper and then rolled the edges in Slate. I used this rock and roll technique many or most times I stamped a cloud. Occasionally I re-inked the stamp and stamped over a cloud to make it even darker.


Place the mask on the cloud you just stamped and then stamp the clouds around it.


On the left and right of the mask you can see the ink from the clouds on either side of the foreground cloud. Here are my clouds with the mask set just above the cloud in the foreground.


Here is my card front (so far) with a few more clouds added. I am not sure I am happy with it yet. I think I could have selected a better placement for a cloud or two. I might create a second mask so I can stamp a few more clouds without stamping over existing clouds.


If you create a card using this technique, please share a link in the comments so we can see other uses for masking, rock and roll and double-stamping.

In the meantime, only one week remains in April. How did that happen? Time flies whether you are having fun or not I guess.


I would like to remind you that on April 30 when the clock strikes 11:59pm in the Mountain Time Zone the products in Seasonal Expressions 1 will no longer be available for purchase. If you have any items on your wish list that appear in SE1, but sure to place your order before the end of the month.

On Sunday, April 9 I posted a list of Seasonal Expressions 1 2017 Retiring Products. Actually the list is of five or so products that will continue to be available after April 30 – you may not see them in Seasonal Expressions 2, but they will be available on my Consultant website.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Have a great Sunday!

Cardmaking WYW Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH Cardmaking Workshops Your Way (WYW) Blog Hop. For this hop there are about 15 bloggers sharing projects they created with stamps from one of the Cardmaking WYW Kits. Our projects are different than the cards you will find in the WYW guides. We try to keep our blog hop easy by making it a circle. Keep clicking on the link to the next blog (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next blog. You will then work your way back to where you started.


You should have arrived here from ***Jen Rubio's Stamp with Jen***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

Close To My Heart has two Cardmaking WYW choices still available from Seasonal Expressions 1: Hello Baby Cardmaking Kit (G1123) and Here for You Cardmaking Kit (G1124). Unfortunately the Mother's Day Cardmaking Kit (G1122) and Happy Congratulations Cardmaking Kit (G1125) recently became unavailable, but the stamps from those kits still have the potential to create some fabulous artwork.

For this hop I created two cards. My first card is a little larger than I normally create (5" x 7") and took a bit more time as it is all stamping. I took breaks between some of the stamped clusters because I was not sure I was happy how it was coming together. I used masking and the rock and roll techniques on the card. I also fussy cut the flowers. I did not have a large enough piece of Adventure Fundamentals to cover the card base so I looked for a creative way to use two scraps. I am really happy with how it turned out and it was very easy to do. If you would like me to write a tutorial, let me know in the comments.


My second card is very simple. I used the hello phrase from the Hello Baby Cardmaking WYW and masked the "Friendship grows with Love" sentiment from Good Thymes! I stamped with Sorbet and New England Ivy.


Before you head to ***Gina's Little Corner of StampinHeaven by Gina Brandstetter***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Consultant website.

It would be wonderful if you have a moment to leave a comment telling me know what you think of my card before you head to ***Gina's Little Corner of StampinHeaven by Gina Brandstetter***

I hope you are finding many different ideas for using the stamps from the Cardmaking WYW Kits available from Close To My Heart. Thanks for hopping with us!

Cardmaking Workshops Your Way

On March 5 I told you about the Guides for the Workshops Your Way™ Kits and how to download them to your computer. Today is all about the Cardmaking Workshops Your Way™ Kits. The cardmaking (and scrapbooking) kits are only available until April 30 (the end of Seasonal Expressions 1 2017) or while supplies last (yes, the stamps are made at Corporate headquarters in Utah, but it is possible that the embellishments or papers that are part of the kit could sell out before the end of the Idea Book).

There are three Cardmaking Workshops Your Way™ Kits in Seasonal Expressions 1 2017. There were four, but the WYW Mother's Day Cardmaking Kit was so popular that is already sold out. The kits are appropriate for a variety of occasions. When you look at the Cardmaking WYW options in Seasonal Expressions 1 (see pages 13, 23, 33 and 43), the pages will look like screenshots below. You will see the contents of the kit and two options for creating the cards. When you view the Guides, there are also photos of how the cards would look when you use the reverse side of the paper.

WYW Hello Baby Cardmaking Kit (G1123)
Hello Baby Cardmaking option is perfect for the obvious Baby and Congratulations, but also would be good for hello and get well cards as well as retirement and other celebratory occassions. Looking at the icons individually, the are a variety of cards they could be used on including 4th of July, birthday and Valentines.

WYW Here for You Cardmaking Kit (G1124)
Here for You Cardmaking option is perfect for Sympathy, Encouragement and Thinking of You. The flowers would be great on a variety of cards including sympathy, Mother's Day, get well, birthday and more.

WYW Happy Congratulations Cardmaking Kit (G1125)
The Happy Congratulations Cardmaking option is perfect for Congratulations and Wedding. Like the Here for You Kit, the flowers would be great on a variety of cards including sympathy, Mother's Day, get well, birthday and more.

I am sure there are many other ways to use the stamps from these WYW kits. I would love to hear your ideas, so please leave a comment below.

When you view the Workshops Your Way Cardmaking options on my Online Business Address you do not see the card ideas without opening the Guides. The images on my OBA show the contents of the kits:

Cardmaking Workshops Your Way™ Kits
SOLD OUT - Mother's Day Cardmaking Kit
WYW Hello Baby Cardmaking Kit (G1123)
WYW Here for You Cardmaking Kit (G1124)
Happy Congratulations Card. Kit (G1125)

The current Cardmaking Workshops Your Way™ Kits with links to order and/or download the guides are:
Please be sure to download the guides you need before 11:59pm on April 30 because a new idea book starts on May 1 and the current guides will no longer appear on my OBA.

On Monday, April 17 – two weeks from today – I will be participating in a Cardmaking Workshops Your Way Blog Hop (this link will take you directly to the hop on the 17th). We will not be showing you cards completing using the Guides provided by CTMH; our goal is to show you a variety of uses for the stamps on your other projects. I hope you will be able to join us on the hop. In the meantime, I will be sharing some cards created as shown in the Guide and they may have a few twists.

If you are ready to place an order or would like to research any product, the Shop Now button will take you there.



If you have any product or promotion questions, do not hesitate to email me. You will also find me on Facebook at Brenda's Paper Crafts. Thank you for visiting today.

Flock Together April 2017 Blog Hop

Welcome to the April 2017 SOTM Blog Hop featuring the stamp set Flock Together. This month there are almost 20 bloggers sharing projects they created with the CTMH Stamp Of The Month. If blog hopping is new to you, we try to keep it easy: just keep clicking on the link to the next blog (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next stop. Our blog hop is circular so visiting the next blog will take you back to where you started.


You should have arrived here from ***Sheila's Stamping Stuff by Sheila Bennett***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.


When I saw the birds in this stamp set, I immediately thought of a photo I took on vacation in Canyonlands National Park. I saw a flock of birds that looked very similar.


I stamped the Sweet Leaf before tearing the paper. The bird on the left was stamped with Cashmere; the bird on the right with Saddle. The hearts were first stamped with Pomegranate, then with VersaMark and heat embossed. I used the Journaling Pen on the eyes to make them stand out a bit more.

Before you head to ***Jean McNulty's Stamping Maui***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Online Business Address.

I like to read what people think about my projects; if you have a moment, please leave a comment before you leave. So you do not have to scroll back up, the next stop on the hop is ***Jean McNulty's Stamping Maui***.

I hope you are finding many ideas for how you might use the Flock Together stamp set. Thanks for hopping with us!

April 2017 CTMH News

Hello! Close To My Heart has an exciting special this month, a fun SOTM and it is the last month to purchase from Seasonal Expressions 1. Below I have a preview of the May special. Grab your favorite beverage before sitting down to read what April has in store for us.

The April 2017 Stamp of the Month is Flock Together


Flock Together (S1704) is an exclusive D-size set of 11 stamps that is only available for purchase during the month of April 2017. The stamp set can be yours for $5 when you place an order of $50 or more in qualifying Close To My Heart products (and you qualify for additional sets at $5 for each $50 you spend).

CTMH Corporate Artists created this layout and card using the Flock Together stamp set.



If you would like a list of the products used to create the above items, you will find the information in the Recipes for Seasonal Expressions 1, a PDF file that lists the products used to make the samples in the Seasonal Expressions 1 so you may re-create projects at home. I am participating in a Flock Together blog hop this month; you will find my post here tomorrow. Please visit my CTMH 2017 04 Apr SOTM Flock Together Pinterest Board for additional ideas using the Flock Together stamp set.

The April 2017 Special is 15-Minute Memories


During the month of April 2017, the Cut Above™ layout kits that were introduced in Seasonal Expressions 1 (see pages 54 and 55) are available at 50% off the retail price with no qualifying purchase required! The Cut Above™ layout kits make memory keeping incredibly easy because all you have to add are your photos and adhesive. There are two designs to choose from—Little One and Forever & Always. You can capture even more memories by using the twelve coordinating pocket cards.

Cut Above™ Layout Kits
Little One
(Z3320)
Forever & Always
(Z3319)

The kit includes two 12" x 12" pages for the base of your two-page layout and die cuts and stickers to embellish the layout. Also included are twelve 4" x 6" pocket cards; the pattern is the same on both sides, but one side is landscape and the other is portrait. You will receive four page protectors to keep your finished kit neat; two Memory Protectors™ Top Load for the two-page layout, one Memory Protectors™ Design 1 (Z1324) and one Memory Protectors™ Design 2 (4113). There is a double-sided page with simple assembly tips and color photos to help you create a beautiful two-page layout in minutes. When you view a layout kit on my Online Business Address, under the product description is a quick video showing the kit being assembled. If you follow the suggestions you will have finished projects that look like this for the Little One kit:



Or this for the Forever & Always kit:



Of course, you can rearrange the pieces and/or use different embellishments to create your own one-of-a-kind layout and pocket pages.

There is no limit on the number of Cut Above™ kits you may purchase, but please remember that shipping is based on the full retail price of the kit and the kits are available while supplies last.

Seasonal Expressions 1 ends April 30, 2017


This is the last month to order products from Seasonal Expressions 1. As soon as Corporate publishes a retiring list I will share that information on my blog. As happened with Holiday Expressions 2016, I expect some items could sell out before the Idea Book ends on April 30. In addition, I expect very few products will be continued into the Seasonal Expressions 2; you may recall that only two products were continued from Holiday Expressions 2016. If there are any products you really want, I encourage you to place your orders sooner rather than later.

Unfortunately some of the items introduced in SE1 2017 have already sold out and are no longer available to order. Items no longer available are:

SE 1 - Items No Longer Available
Item # Product Name
G1118 WYW Sugar Rush Scrapbooking Kit
G1122 WYW Mother's Day Cardmaking Kit
Z3300 Sugar Rush Cardmaking Thin Cuts Bundle
Z3303 Dreamin’ Big Card Thin Cuts Bundle
Z3304 Happy Birthday Thin Cuts - temporarily unavailable; expected end of April
Z3305 XOXO Thin Cuts
Z3310 Sugar Rush Dots

As soon as a list of retiring products is published I will share it here on my blog.

Videos on the Close To My Heart Facebook Page WITHOUT a Facebook Account

I learned something new and thought those of you who do not have Facebook accounts would like to know how you too can see the videos that are posted on the CTMH Facebook Page. Start by visiting https://www.facebook.com/CloseToMyHeart/videos/. Your window will looks something like this:


Look below the buttons to "Sign Up" or "Log In" and choose "Not Now". The white box will get a bit smaller and move to the bottom of the screen:


You can then use the scroll bar to move the page to where you can see the videos:


Click on a video and it will play in a window that looks like this:


If you get a message about logging in, click on "Log In" and then you will get the window where you can click "Not Now". So far as I have only had this happen once, when I paused the video to do something else and went back to watch it.

If you visit the Videos page you will get a wonderful sneak peek at the National Scrapbooking Month—Live Beautifully Cut Above™ layout kit.

If you are ready to place an order or would like to read more about a product, the Shop Now button will take you there.


If you have any product or promotion questions, do not hesitate to email me. You will also find me on Facebook at Brenda's Paper Crafts. Thank you for visiting today.
