National Scrapbooking Month - Live Beautifully - Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart 
National Scrapbooking Month Live Beautifully Blog Hop! 

This hop I am following {Cat Nowak's Blog.}   We have 17 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this Thin Cuts Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.      

I LOVE the Live Beautifully paper,

the stamp set,
and especially the Cut Above Kit

that comes with this promotion.  The paper pack gives you 16 pieces of paper including a couple that are gold foiled and that are incredibly beautiful.

Close to My Heart has also made a special bundle that gives you 20% off.  Retail is $87.10.

Life has settled down and my mojo has returned.  I have been busy making lots of different projects with this paper and our other new paper lines.  I had seen this gorgeous technique where you paint on a stamped image with our watercolors and it gives you a flower that has incredible depth and detail.  So I picked up a scrap of paper from this paper pack and made this card.

I  used the stamp set that is featured in this promotion which would be a wonderful stamp for either scrapbooking or cardmaking.  The flower and leaves are stamped with Whisper Ink and painted with watercolors.  I added a little bling with the Gold Shimmer Trim and some Gold Glitter Gems.

By the way, this promotion is only good until May 31st, 2017 while supplies last.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to show me a little love by leaving me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Jennifer Dykstra's Blog} and see what she has made with this adorable stamp set.

You can purchase any of the supplies used in my artwork on my website.
