August HWBH Florence Paper Pack

If this is the first time joining us you will love it. It features Close to My Heart Consultants from all across Canada showing you their projects. The Hearts of the West team was founded by Nancy Klein.

If you came from Donna digby
you're in the right place. This is a go around blog so you can start anywhere. Just in case, the full list is at the bottom of this post.
 Grab a beverage and enjoy the hop!

This is the Florence paper pack!

The first card is a 5 X 61/2"  Birthday card. I used a PML card from the paper pack, Florence complements, Florence sequins and the copper tape. I layered some of the complements and popped up the top layer with 3D foam tape.

The second card is also  5 X 61/2" but I did cut a little off the 61/2 side for a little better fit. I used Some Florence paper and layered another PML card on top. Because you have 2 sides of the PML card to work with going in different directions, when I didn't like the coloring of the other side, I turned it over!! I tried coloring in the designs with the CTMH water color pencils but didn't like it. This side I used Saffron ink and used a dauber to give a little more color to it.
I used the Florence sequins and Complements to finish it off. The flower in the middle is popped up with 3D foam tape.

My 3rd card is a 5.5"X 4" card. I decided to try something different. I basically added a card on a card. I used 2 small PML cards that were connected together on the sheet and folded them to make a card. I covered one side with Peacock cardstock. I mounted it on to a piece of saffron cardstock, then onto the card base. 

Hope you enjoyed my projects.  If you are interested in any of the items used in my project please go to this link, Corinna Murphy for ordering.

CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop-Animal Greetings

Hello and welcome to our CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop. This week our featured product is (the Operation Smile stamp set-Animal Greetings).
If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can find the complete list at the end of this post. If you came here from (Jennifer Bennett) you are in the  right place.

My projects today are simple cards. Nothing fancy. All the Animal greetings are very cute and small so they can complement a card, a tag, a scrapbook page. 

I used Poppy cardstock with Florence complements and zip strip with Florence sequins to add a pop of color. The sentiment is on White Daisy cardstock and Saffron. I used Poppy ink and Slate ink as well.
The second card was made with Peacock cardstock and White Daisy. I used the Rose Gold foil tape and the Florence rose gold sequins. The sentiment is inked with Cashmere and Peacock ink.
