Three Amigos June 2017 Blog Hop Challenge

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. When you finish hopping, be sure to check out the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge!

This month we are sharing projects using the No Worries paper pack (papers or featured colors) from the new Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book. The featured colors are cashmere, glacier, lagoon, sapphire, whisper, and white daisy.
The colors in this paper pack are perfect for a masculine card. I paired the herringbone basket-weave patterned paper with cashmere, sapphire, and white daisy cardstocks. I heat embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder, spattered it with cashmere ink, and popped up the "are really really" banner. I enhanced the visual texture of the patterned paper with white and blue burlap ribbon and blue enamel dots.

I added a few finishing touches to the inside and stamped a sentiment from the Workshops Your Way Let's Party stamp set.

Thanks for hopping by today! Hop over to Lisa's Blog and Donna's Blog to see what they created for you, then over to the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge. We hope you play along!

  2. Thanks for reminding me that I need to make more cards for men. This is a perfect one!

  3. A really strong, direct card - very masculine, indeed! Great job, inky temptress!
