Stampers With an Attitude New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude New Product Blog Hop.  This month I am following  Becky McLain.  Our blog hop is a circular hop.  You just click on the link to the next blog on the bottom of this post and go visit the next blog.  If you get lost, I have all of the participating blogs near the bottom of my post.  Hope you enjoy seeing what our team has made for you.

Did you know that our new Idea Book was just released on August 1st?  Look at the gorgeous cover.

If you do not have a Close to My Heart Consultant and would like your own copy of the Idea Books, be sure to leave me a comment with your email address and I will contact you to get your address so that I can send you one.

This is truly my favorite catalog of all times.  There is so many beautiful and innovative products.  One of my favorite products is the latest edition of Make It From Your Heart.  This is a how-to book with tons of scrapbooking and card patterns and ideas.  It is a great jumping off point if you need to get your mojo going.

I wanted to make a simple masculine card.  I chose to use Card Pattern #28 on pg 46.  Then I chose my stamp set, The Party is On (C1568).  This is a Hostess Rewards exclusive stamp set.  Only gathering Hostesses can purchase this stamp set.  With a qualifying gathering, you can get this stamp set for just $8. Wow!  What a great price!

Here is my card:

I made my card base from Whisper Cardstock.  My patterned paper comes from the New ProPlayer paper pack.  Such a fun new product!  I also used the Zip Strip from one of the patterned papers under the stamped image.  The frame around the sentiment was cut using the Close to My Heart exclusive Cricut Artbooking cartridge.  I used the Pacifica Cardstock in the paper pack.  The adorable embellishment in the top left corner of the card came from the ProPlayer Assortment.

Now, hop on over to our next Blog hopper, the very talented, Christy Geyer and see what she has made for you to see!

  1. I love the card but I REALLY love the photography! Nice job!!

  2. Thanks Kim! I have worked hard on learning how to both photograph and edit my photos. Sometimes it takes me longer to take the picture than it does to make the piece of artwork!

  3. Great card! I need to learn to take those type of photographs.... one of these days.

  4. Nice ProPlayer card. That patterned paper is so fun.

  5. Wow! Such a great masculine card using Pro Player and that adorable stamp set. Can't wait to play with it myself! :D

  6. Love the Pro Player Papers. Awesome work. Thanks for sharing and hosting the BLOG HOP!!!

  7. Now I need this stamp set. Great card!

  8. Oh I really like this card Melinda!!

  9. Great card. It is very masculine. Don't see many of those - and I know we do send cards to our men friends and family.

  10. Simple but perfect! I also like how you do the inside of the card - I hate all that "naked"space when they are blank.


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog post!
