International Blog Hightlights

Image may contain: text

Hello everyone,

So I glad you stopped in today!  I am taking part in Kyle Bertucci's International Blog Highlights!  It is so much fun to play along and meet other demonstrators across the globe.

The blog highlight is a friendly competition with the top 10 participants creating a blog hop the following month.

This month's theme is FRIENDSHIP.   I knew exactly which of my recent cards I was going to share as soon as I saw the theme. Its a card I made using the Colourful Seaasons Stampset and Seasonal layers Thinlits.

I started by cutting 4 scalloped edged narrow strips of paper.  I loosely put them in rainbow order.  I love the large scallops that this thinlit makes.

I layered a scalloped circle from the Layered Circle Thinlits and a stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  

The sentiment and the image are from the Colourful Seasons stampset.  I LOVE how the branch and flowers fit so beautifully together.  

I popped both circles up onto dimensionals and finished my card off with a bow.  

If you enjoyed my card and would like to vote for me, simply click the icon below.  And of course, I am always happy to hear from you in my comments below!


Happy Stampin'

June Blog Hop

 Hey there my stampin' friends,

Happy June!  June is a very busy month in the Gill house.  All three of my boys have their birthdays in June!  It will be a fun packed month for us!

With the start of a new month comes a blog hop with my Blogging Friends.  And this hop is perfect for my month ahead....masculine!  With Father's day coming up and all three of my boys birthday, this is the perfect way to get some masculine inspiration.

Here is the card I created for you today.
I love this colour combination and couldn't resist making a argyle pattern with this geometrical punch, Tailored Tag.  Love how this layer turned out.  To create it, I cut a piece of 5 by 3 3/4 Whisper White cardstock and layered all of the punched coloured cardstock, on top of it.  I started my layers at the top with 2 of colours and had them join in the center of the layer and then continued to layered from there.  I left some hanging over the edges until I was finished and the turned it over and trimmed them up after.
Once that layer was complete, I added it on top of a Whisper White, wrapped my ribbon around the two layers and then added them to the top of a Night of Navy card base.  
The focal point is a scalloped circle in Night of Navy, then a Circle in Lemon Lime Twist, both cut with the Layering Circle Thinlits.  
I stamped the image in Lemon Line Twist and Night of Navy.  I used my paper snips to cut out those adorable little glasses.  I punched the Navy also using the Tailored Tag Punch. I added the glasses with a part of a dimensional.
Thank you for stopping by.  Be sure to hop on through to see of the masculine inspiration that my Blogging Friends have to share.
