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.

Let's promise to always be friends!


Hey ya'll! I wanted to share another card I made using Emma's new release! I had this one done but didn't get to photograph it in time for my sneak peek post for today :( I've been photographing my pictures outside and yesterday it rained so I had to wait till today to get my picture!

I pulled out a older stamp that I've had by Penny Black, called Sisterhood. To be honest, I can't even tell you how long I've had it! I was just digging around and came across it and knew it would be perfect with this sentiment hee hee! The sentiment is from the new set, Treasured Moments and I heat embossed it on one of the new Stitched Square speech bubble dies. This image was a little time consuming paper piecing but believe it or not I find it very relaxing (I know I'm weird!) I cut their hair twice and raised up the top portion (you may have to click to enlarge the photo to tell) Also, (if you look close on both of their tops) I used the Build A Banner set to add patterns using the little background stamps in the set. I used my JellyRoll StarDust pen and added sparkles to their hair and parts of their tops :) I felt like they needed something to "ground" them so I added a little strip of red card stock underneath. I also used a JellyRoll pen to add stitching around the edges.

I'm excited my new CTMH Artbooking cartridge should be in my hands tomorrow! I'm hoping to get to play and have lots of projects made before it is released on August 1st. I wished I could offer a big giveaway like I see so many consultants doing but I'm just going to be honest, I haven't got the connections or funds to be able to give away cricut machines :(  I can't send out free cartridges to all the well known, popular bloggers either :( I'm feeling a little defeated trying to compete with these well known bloggers/consultants but I promise you if you decide to purchase from me I will offer 24/7 support for ANYTHING you need or questions you have! I promise to make sure that you are one satisfied customer!!! So, before you make up your mind and purchase from one of the well known bloggers/consultants that I'm sure will be selling TONS of please give me a chance :) I'm not trying to become a millionaire, I just want to be able to pay a few bills :) Thank you for letting me vent! Hugs, Leanne
