Three Amigos November Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos' November CTMH Mini-Blog Hop.  We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you.  On the 3rd day of each month, we will feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project.  There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.
 
For this month's "Hop," we decided to use anything from the Holidays From the Heart Gift Guide this month. Have you seen all of the fabulous products in this guide yet? I'm in the process of creating a Christmas mini album, but it's not quite ready to show yet.  Today I am going to show you a card I created using the Lifting Spirits stamp set (C1570) and Party Washi Tape (Z1908).

 
 
The balloon is colored with our watercolor pencils and popped up off of an embossed cloud background.  I stamped and lightly sponged the clouds with Sky ink.  Did you spot the washi tape behind the white grosgrain ribbon and the sentiment?
 

I tried several different ribbons and bakers twine before settling on the white grosgrain.  It adds just the right amount of softness and allows the washi tape design to peek through.


I decorated the inside of the card as well.  The background hearts are stamped with Sky Ink and appear to be falling from the sky.  I added a few fussy cut clouds and hearts, leaving plenty of space to write a note to the recipient.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hop on over to Lisa's Blog to see what she created to share with you.
