Annual Inspirations 2017-2018 New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the New Product Blog Hop Blog Hop featuring products that are available in our newest Idea Book Annual Inspirations 2017-2018. For this hop there are about 25 CTMH Independent Consultants sharing projects created with a product introduced in AI '17-'18. If blog hopping is new to you, we try to keep it easy:click on the link to the next blog (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next stop. Our blog hop is a circle so continuing to visit the next blog will take you back to where you started.

You should have arrived here from ***Stamping Maui by Jean McNulty***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

The Delicate Flower stamp set was sitting in my craft space and kept calling out to me so I had to create something with it. I cut a 4 inch square of White Daisy cardstock and then stamped in each corner of the cardstock. I changed how I rotated the cardstock so each square would be different.

I colored my first stamped square with ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ markers.

I colored my second square with Watercolor Pencils and used the Small Round Waterbrush.

I auditioned my colored images on sheets from the Adventure Fundamental Paper Packet and really love how the graduated colors worked.

Before you head to ***Vickie ODell's HeARTful Stamper***, 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.
    Before you leave I would be delighted if you left me a comment letting me know what you think of my cards. Thanks for hopping with us! So you do not have to scroll back up, the next stop on the hop is ***Vickie ODell's HeARTful Stamper***.


    1. Love this idea - simple but so effective. 2 beautiful cards :)

    2. Love the way you used this M size stamp! My fav is the one done in markers!

    3. Beautiful cards and a wonderful idea for using that small stamp!

    4. LOVE your cards Brenda! I hadn't thought of using this stamp as a focal point (only in the background), so thanks for helping me to see that this stamp can be used in an entirely different way than I had imagined! AWESOME! <3

    5. Love both cards. They remind me of a mosaic tile.

    6. Love your cards! A great idea on how to use this stamp set.


    Thank you for leaving a comment! I enjoy reading them.
