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.
