Three Amigos May Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog hop.  We are three Close to My Heart Independent Consultants with a love for stamping and scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you.  On the 3rd of each month we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout, or other project.  There are only three stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

This month we are featuring the Happy Everything stamp set. Close To My Heart will donate $3 of the proceeds of each Happy Everything stamp set purchased to Operation Smile. I love the sentiments included in this stamp set! April was a busy month around here, leaving very little time to be creative. I designed my card to send to my mom, and also for a make-and-take project at an all day crop I attended yesterday.

I paired patterned paper from the Brushed paper pack with Smoothie cardstock, black Shimmer Trim, and Flamingo Dots that I colored with the black Shin-Han alcohol marker. The black accents really make the colors in the card pop and plays off of the black outlines in the paper.

I added more patterned paper and smoothie cardstock to the inside to dress it up a little. The sentiment says "Because you're a one-of-a-kind, fabulous person."

After I created my card, I remembered I used some of the sentiments on the insides of a couple other cards I haven't shared yet. The first Card is from the Blossom Workshop On The Go set.

The second card uses Jackson papers and the Dizzy Circles stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by today. Hop over to Lisa's blog and Donna's blog to see what they created for you.


  1. Love them all! So funny that I used black with the blossom! Great minds!

    1. Yes, great minds! Have you tried smoothie with Brushed yet? It's not a suggested color in the paper pack, but it coordinates well.

  2. Beautiful! Beautiful! Again, decorating the inside of a card is always a special surprise when someone opens it up!
