Three Amigos September 2016 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 three techniques on our projects. My nephew is getting married today, so I thought I would share the wedding card I made for him and his new bride. I incorporated dry embossing, heat embossing, and direct-to-paper ink distressing into my card.



The top portion of the card features our Sea Glass cardstock embossed with the Confetti Embossing Folder. I used the Shimmer Brush to add sparkle to each of the embossed dots, but the camera didn't pick up the shimmery effect. The sentiment from the Wedding Wishes stamp set is heat embossed on the wood patterned paper from the Rustic Home Fundamentals Collection. I added crochet ribbon from the Rustic Home Ribbon Pack. The hearts are cut from Sea Glass Glitter Paper using the new Hearts Thin Cuts.  I wanted the hearts to have a little dimension, so I cut three extra layers from Sea Glass cardstock and adhered them together.






I used the Mini Sea Glass Pigment Ink Pad to stamp the inside sentiment.
Thanks for hopping by! Hop over to Lisa's blog and Donna's blog to see what they created for you.
