I was playing with the new Hopscotch papers and love how this card turned out.  I used a clear acrylic glaze on the Super Star stamp to give it some pop.

I am getting ready for a crop this weekend and put together a make and take project.  The inspiration comes from this Mojo Monday sketch and the Close To My Heart January Stamp of the Month set.


For this card, I used the following supplies:

S1501 This Moment, January Stamp of the Month
Artbooking Cricut Cartridge for the bullseye
Papers: Heartstrings, Lagoon, White Daisy and Ruby

I used the Heart Embossing Folder and sanded the hearts to get the nice white contrast.  The heart Washi tape works nicely with this card when layered on white paper.

I just finished lining up my supplies for Monday night's group; the Scrappers of Deforest get together once a month to make 3x3 cards to go out with Meals on Wheels deliveries in the area.  We have a theme each month and a rule that we can only use supplies we already have on hand. The theme this month is snow or winter and I just had to use the polar bear for these, he fits perfectly.

3x3" square of pacifica blue paper from the assortment pack
2 3/4" postage stamp cut from white daisy (Art Philosophy cartridge)
3/4"snowflake (Art Philosophy cartridge)

Pacifica ink (Polar bear)
Whisper pigment ink (daub on snowflake and heat set with embossing powder)

Stamp set:
S1410 - Home for the Holidays 
C1593 - Hats off Hostess (for sentiment)

Bow tie from Z3037 - Stuck on You Puffies
