Blog Hops With Heart: Rustic Inspiration Photo

Hello! It's time for another Blog Hops With Heart Blog Hop! I just love this group of gals that I hop with each month...they are all so very talented, so be sure to check out all of their projects!

This month we used the photo below as inspiration for our projects....
I was inspired by the rustic wood fence, so for my scrapbook page I used a background paper that has a woodgrain pattern. I love these photos of when my parents first met Tyler. They were taken just about a year ago! 

I can't tell you where most of the paper came from. I know the mint one is by Jen Hadfield, the rest was a mix from my stash. I used Thickers for the canvas title and the rest of the embellishments are CTMH. The white enamel shapes add a nice touch, as do the stickers from the You & Me Complements....unfortunately they're both retired now. I also added some white sequins and clear sparkles to finish it off.

I'll leave you with some detail shots...

You've reached the end of the blog hop for this month, but if you started here, head over to the Amie's blog to catch the beginning. Thanks for stopping by!

Scripty & Sparkly Die Cut Thanks Card

Hi there,
I made this card to send to my friend Stephanie a few months ago. The paper is retired now, but still available while supplies last! I used two packs - Swan Lake and Jeepers Creepers. I love mixing paper collections :)

I used a Thin Cut die for the "thanks" sentiment. And it's on sale for just a couple more days for 25% off! It comes as a set with "Hello," and both die cuts are sized perfectly for cards. Shop Die Cuts >

See that lovely sparkle on the die cut? It's from the Shimmer brush in clear. I am obsessed with it! It's very similar to the Wink of Stella shimmer brush if you're familiar with that, but CTMH's is less expensive and has more product in it! Plus it comes in gold and clear (like silver). The gold is a clear base with gold shimmer, whereas the Wink of Stella is a gold base and gold shimmer. I like CTMH's better :)

While this seasonal paper is retired now, it's still available while supplies last. So if you like it, you'd better grab it! There are matching Complements (cardstock stickers), washi, etc as well! Shop While Supplies Last >

Be sure to also check out the Clearance Page. (Not to be confused with While Supplies Last.) The clearance section has incredible deals and really cute stuff at up to 80% off! Shop Clearance >

Thanks for visiting! My supply list is below if you're interested in what I used.

Some Kinda Wonderful 3x3 Die-Cut & Copic Cards

I am on a roll with this blogging thing lately! I have some bright and cheery cards to share today. I played around with the Some Kinda Wonderful paper and Thin Cuts/stamp set bundle (which is 25% off only for a few more days!). This stamp set is SERIOUSLY CUTE! It was the first thing I had to have when the current catalog came out.
Don't you love this bird? I'm not the best Copic colorer but it was fun to color him in. You can do all sorts of color combos for him. I used Memento black ink so that the alcohol in the Copics didn't make the image smear.

You have to check out the adorable fox and turtle that come in the set, too. The word bubble is a stamp and die also, and there are a couple of sentiments sized to perfectly fit in it, as well as a few larger sentiments. The stamp set picture is below or check it out on my website.
I added some splatters of black acrylic paint to the card base. It's hard to tell because most of it is covered up, but there are some cute dots peeking out on the sides. They are also on the back. Makes for a fun added detail.

TIP: Create 8 splattered card bases from one sheet of cardstock! Add a few drops of water to some acrylic paint in a small jar. Use a paint brush to splatter an entire 12"x12" sheet of white carstock. Let dry. Cut into (8) 3"x6" card bases. Fold each in half for a 3"x3" card.

Here are more Some Kinda Wonderful cards that the CTMH Art Department created with this paper and stamp set...
