Simply Inspired Blog Hop - Seasonal Expressions 1



It's a new year and a new Simply Inspired Blog Hop!  Yay!  

You've just arrived from the blog of the always creative Pamela!
Thanks for stopping by!
  
I'm so excited to be featuring some awesome new product in the Close To My Heart Seasonal Expressions 1!  This little supplement is filled with so many beautiful papers, cool stamp sets and accents, and fun tools!



I chose the bright and colorful Penelope paper pack for my card.  I cut a card shape (page 24 - Sleeve - shift @ 5.5") from the CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge using black paper.  Next I backed the front of the card with the cute little white Penelope print with tiny dots, and filled some of the circle cut outs with Thistle cardstock just for fun!  



I'm loving the Watercolor Paint set, so I painted a wash of watercolor on Watercolor Paper and then stamped the happy little flowers form the "Friend In Me" stamp set.  After cutting them out, I had fun arranging a variety of flowers and leaves over the circles.  The sentiment circle is a 1.75" circle with a 2" black circle behind it.  I popped up both that circle and the two daisy type flowers with 3D Foam Tape....just cuz it's cute that way!  A few accents from the sparkly new silver Playful Puffies, plus a few Bitty Sparkles and a Glacier Extra Thick Twine bow were added for a little pizzazz!

Now hop on over to see what fabulous art Delightful Denise has to "wow" us with! 

If you get lost along the way, here's the list of participants.
