Three Amigos March 2017 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.

Our projects feature the Dreamin' Big paper pack or coordinating colors this month. Dreamin' Big is my favorite collection in this Seasonal Expressions. The vibrant colors and versatile patterns catch my eye. I made a shaker card following the Originals: Clockwork pattern and using the Circle Thin Cuts, which happen to be on sale this month.

I stamped the lady bugs from the Dreamin' Big- Cardmaking stamp set, colored the spots, head and antennae with my journaling pen, and cut then out with the coordinating Thin Cuts.

I cut apart a 3x3 flip flap to use as the clear front on my shaker panel. Along with the ladybugs, I filled the shaker with retired sequins I had in my stash. Three Black Enamel Dots outline the shaker panel. The sentiment is also from the Dreamin' Big- Cardmaking stamp set.

I added a few more circles to the edges of the inside panel to finish off the card.

Thanks for Hopping by today! Be sure to check out Lisa's Blog and Donna's Blog to see what they created this month. See Lisa's post for information about our coming challenge and a giveaway for March!
