April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to my Heart, April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.
If you're starting here for the hop, just click on the next person at the end of this post. When you get back to me, you know you've seen them all.

If you want to start at the very begining, then you want to start here at Helen's Blog. There you will also find a complete list of Bloggers in case you get lost or a link doesn' t work.

The inspiration for my card came from  Skipping Stones Tuesday Sketch. I'm addicted to sketches. I just can't get enough.

My card uses the new April Stamp of the Month, called "Flower Pot".  Flowers are one of my favorite things to use in card making.

The B&T is from the Caboodles Collection and the ribbon is Sorbet.

I used stickles on the flowers for just a little glitz!

Now, hop on over to Barbara's blog and see what great artwork she has to share.

Bunny Love - Papertake Weekly Challenge

Here are two more cards using the CTMH stamp set called Bunny Love.

The inspiration for this first card came from a sketch challenge over at the Papertake Weekly Challenge Blog.
The paper is retired Precious Paisley's from CTMH.

This card was inspired by a sketch from the Peachy Keen Blog.

Bunny Love - ICSketches $57

I thought I lost this stamp set but fortunatley I found it. I think these bunnies are just the cutest.
My card today was inspired by sketch #57 from ICSketches. I decided to make a regular A2 size card rather than a long skinny one.
The paper I used is called Precious Paisleys from Close to my Heart. This paper is discontinued, but I love it for spring cards.

The CTMH stamp set is called Bunny Love. The Bunny was stamped and colored twice. Then one was cut out and layered with foam tape for dimension.

I used a variety of punches to make the flower and leaves and a Fiskars's border punch.
