Flower Market Blog Hop

Hello Crafty People!  Welcome to the RB Close to My Heart mid-month blog hop!  We are sharing projects created with the Flower Market Cricut cartridge this time. If you have come from my sweet friend Mary's blog, then I am sure you've seen something beautiful!

I have to be honest-- I was a little overwhelmed here! There are so many beautiful images to choose from-- everything from containers and every kind of flower imaginable, to bicycles, typewriters, banners, wreathes galore and more.  This is truly a fabulous cartridge to have!  When trying to pick just one to work with, I changed my mind so many times...  So, I finally narrowed it down to this sweet mason jar with a little lacy label.  The flowers were from the same page of the booklet and I cut them in three layers-- two shades of Thistle and one in a soft green called Willow. All of the papers used on the card are from the Whimsy Fundamentals collection.

Now hop on along to Kelly's fabulous blog to see what wonderful project she has to share!

Until next time!  xoxo

October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!  Thanks so much for visiting!  The Rose Blossom team is featuring the Close to My Heart October Stamp of the Month in this blog hop.  The stamp set is called Yuletide Joy and it is a beauty! If you have come from Shelly's beautiful blog, then you are on the right track!

This set reminds me of the oh-so-popular coloring books that are everywhere these days.  I was tempted to stamp in black and just color away!  I decided to go in a different direction, though and keep the stamping simple and do some random stamping for the background and then add a few embellishments. I used cranberry ink and cardstock, some glitter paper (brown-retired, I think) and gold dot paper from the Rustic Fundamentals. Popped a little bow on top and Voila! All done!  Here is the finished product:

. Now, hop on along to Sue's lovely blog to see what she has in store!
