May 2010 Blog Hop Featuring Wishes: City Scape

Welcome to my blog in the May 2010 Spotlight Blog Hop.  If you are getting here from Haley D's Blog you are in the right place.  This month we are spotlighting our card designing book, Wishes.  All of the Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this Blog Hop are using the pattern, City Scape.

I used our new Level 2 paper pack, Passages to make my card.  I also turned the pattern onto its side to show you the versatility of our patterns.  Look at the fake hinge I stamped with the Passages WOTG stamp set!  I put Antiqued Copper Bitty Brads where the screws would go in on a real hinge and it almost looks real!  The key I stamped is also from the WOTG stamp set.  I couldn't decide what color to stamp it.  I started off with Bamboo, then went to Desert Sand.  I just love our clear stamps because I still did not like the color of the key.  It needed to be darker. So I stamped over the previous stamping with Cocoa Ink.  It came out a real cool color with some of the lighter color showing through.  You can't do that with rubber stamps!
