June Seaside HWBH

If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features Close to my hearts Consultants from all over Canada showing you their projects. The hearts of the west team was founded by Nancy Klein.
This months challenge is Seaside
 paper pack, brought to you by the new Annual Inspirations, hand picked by Nancy Klein. 

If you came from
  Kim Loewen's Blog then you're in the right place, this is a go around blog hop so you can start anywhere! Just in case, the full list will be at the bottom. So, as always, grab your coffee, tea, water, relax, and hop around the blog with us.

These cards are 6x6. Not my normal size. Everything I used is CTMH unless otherwise stated.
The Seaside paper I must say is one of my favorites!
Paper used Seaside, Desert Sand, Lagoon and Pear
Inks used are Sorbet, Desert Sand and Lagoon
Stamp sets used are Typed Note SOM, 
Birthday Wishes Chantilly Cardmaking workshop, Cricut Artiste Collection and A Thing Well Done, which is a hostess reward.
I used square antique gold durables and mini black medley for embellishments. I did change the pewter brad for the dot on the i of the first card to an aqua dot. It looked better and I changed it before I put in the envelope so I didn't get a picture.
I used the sanding block and sanded all, except the pear,  cardstock. The circles were punched with recollection punches from Michaels. If I was doing many cards the same I would have used the Cricut and one of our cartridges.
The second card I put pieces of paper underneath to add some dimension and a different look. Not sure if I love the second one but I do like how the first one turned out.

Anyone interested in buying any of the supplies I used please go to my OBA andd have a look at all the wonderful memories you can create using Close to My Heart.

  2. Cute and fun stamping!

  3. Nice cards! Love the layering.

  4. I am always amazed at how stamps and papers are used in such a variety of different ways by crafters. Sometimes it's hard to even recognize they are the same!! I really love the layering!

  5. Awesome cards Corinna! I love how you used the different elements of the Seaside paper packet. Thanks for sharing!
