Welcome to the December
Close to my Heart Technique Blog Hop!
There are 13 other amazingly talented Close to my Heart Consultants sharing their artwork with you for this month's Blog Hop.
Should you get lost along the way, all participant's links can be found here.
If you are coming from Michelle's Blog, you are on the right track.
As mentioned in a post a couple weeks back, I love to use our new
Love of Color How-to-Book to inspire my cards and layouts.
This month's Blog Hop showcases how useful this book really is.
The book has several awesome features:
It fits inside our Everyday Life™ albums for easy and convenient transportation.
It includes breathtaking artwork that illustrates how to create perfectly balanced color combinations, and has tons of patterns for cards and layouts.
This book is perfect for both new and seasoned crafters.
It would make an awesome Christmas or Birthday gift!
I created this card, to showcase the color combination on page 10 of the book.
The three featured colors are Saffron, Smoothie and Lagoon.
The card base and second layer of the circle is Saffron cardstock.
The torn strip is Lagoon.
The layer of cardstock behind the strip is Smoothie.
One of my favorite Stamp Sets in our current catalog is the Grateful Heart Stamp Set.
It is perfect for Thank you, Birthday, even Wedding cards!
I used Versamark Ink with the butterfly from the Grateful Heart Stamp Set, to create a very subtle tone on tone background on the Smoothie cardstock.
