MCT July Release Blog Hop!


Good morning and welcome to MCT's July Release Blog Hop!! You should be arriving here from the very talented and sweet Kim's Blog! If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop head over to Emma's Blog

I have two cards I would like to share with you today! Let me start with my first card above. I just love the way this card came out! It's probably my favorite out of the two! I started out by stamping the little house from the Home Sewn stamp set onto my card stock in the bottom right hand corner. I then used some of my scraps to paper piece it. The little grass on both sides are also from this set. I used a copic marker and colored underneath the house and grass to make my ground. The sentiment is also from this set. The sun is from the Fun Pockets Stamp set. I masked off the eyes and replaced them using PK-460 Happy Lashes Face Assortment. Before I stamped the face, I did paper piece it using the pattern paper I used on the house. Last, I used the new Stitched Cartoon Cloud dies. I LOVE these clouds!!


For my next card, I used a piece of kraft card stock and ran it through my Grand Calibur using the nestability Scallop Heart die. I then used the size down from my regular heart dies (nestability) and cut a heart using white card stock. I used the new Cartoon Cloud Background stamp for the background clouds. I then used the airplane from the You Are Here Stamp set. For the little smoke trail, (or that's what I'm calling it hee hee) I used CTMH Stitched Together. Again, I used Emma's new Stitched Cartoon Dies and arranged them at the bottom of my heart. I also pop them up using pop dots. The sentiment is from the new set, Treasured Moments. I added some stitching around the scallop heart and around the edge of my card stock using a white jellyroll pen. 

Isn't this release AWESOME!! Thanks for stopping by! It's time now to head over to the super talented Liz's Blog! If you get lost along the way here is a complete blog hop list...

Love both cards! Great job! I always have such a tough time making or looking for "Congrats on a new home," card! I've adequate several but just didn't like them. Your first card is so cute! Love this cloud dies! And your second card I love this clouds background stamp, the plane, & the heart. I think the is clouds just in the heart is such a cute idea, it's simple but makes such a statement! Amazing job!
