Card Making Workshop Your Way Blog Hop

Workshops Your Way 
Card Making Workshop Kits



If you have never participated in a blog hop before, it is just one big loop of fun ideas as you visit each blog along the way.  If you are coming from Michele's blog, you are on the right path.  If you are starting here, just look for the link at the end of my post and successive posts to see where to go next.


For my project, I used the Here For You Card Workshop Your Way.  
I really like the sentiments of the exclusive stamp set included with this kit.




If you were to follow the kit directions, this is what you could make. 




However, with a little creativity, look what else you can do.  
I made an accordion envelope card. 
It's for a friend who is going through tough times.  


Each section of the card is actually an envelope.  
The envelopes are overlapped to form an accordion. 



Inside each envelope is an insert with a either a prayer, a verse, a coupon good for a batch of her favorite cookies, a coupon for time to just listen or to spend together quietly .



The belly band for the card is made using ribbon from the Rustic Home Ribbon 
collection and Hook and Loop (velcro) dots.  
There is also a hook and loop dot under the  flower cluster 
on the front of the card.

March SOTM Blog Hop -Tea-rrific



This month we are featuring a set of twelve stamps just perfect for friendship cards, Mother's Day cards, or many other creative ideas that you will see along the way in this blog hop.  

If you have never participated in a blog hop before, it is just one big loop of fun ideas as you visit each blog.  If you are coming from Donna's blog, you are on the right path.  If you are starting here, just look for the link at the end of my post and successive posts to see where to go next.  


Here is a set of cards I created using this stamp set.  They are all variations on the same theme, but it was fun to see how they would come together using various papers from the Whimsy Fundamentals paper pack and coordinating cardstock.  I used Shin Han Markers to color all of the flowers.  For most of the cards I used sentiments from one of the stamp sets that comes with the Flower Market Cricut Collection called Sending Smiles, D1708.  I love all the wonderful sentiments in this stamp set.


To get the gems to match the yellow card, I used my ShinHan Marigold marker to color the silver gem from the Sugar Rush Dots.




The sentiment on this pink card is from the Dreaming Big - Card making set, C1674.


The sentiment on this card is from the featured Tea-rrific Stamp Set.  It doesn't show in this photo, but I also covered the cups with Liquid Glass so they would look like china teacups.


I think this is my favorite one of the set.

Paper Pack: Whimsy Fundamentals
