Whoo's Your Valentine Blog Hop!


Welcome to our CTMH Whoo's Your Valentine Blog Hop!  We will be featuring the new Whoo's Your Valentine special, which is a huge project kit that includes an adorable set of 21 stamps, treat tubes, glitter paper, and more for just $10.  If you have come here from NIKKA'S BLOG, you are on the right path!

We have over 30 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations with this special set (and other great CTMH products) on their blogs. Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

For this card I used a sketch from Retro Sketches to create my project. I used Grey as my base because I can't seem to keep my paws out of the Whisper CS lately. It's just such a pretty shade of grey. I added some neon pink and blue to my paper pieced owl bookmark, inspired by the Moxie Fab World Keen on Neon Challenge. The super bright colors just pop against that gentle Whisper background.
Did you see that my little owl is a removable bookmark? I found this super cute owl bookmark idea on a Norwegian blog pinned to Pinterest. I'd already decided what my card was going to look like, but as soon as I saw that pin I knew my owl was born to be a bookmark!
I paper pieced the front of the owl using Cotton Candy and Lagoon inks, and then cut out the whole owl. Then I stamped an owl onto Whisper CS and trimmed it out with a small mat to form the back of my bookmark. I adhered only the top of the pink owl to the Gray owl with liquid glass so it'll be nice and sturdy - you just slip her over the page top to mark your page! I added Silver Glitter glitz accents to her beak and feathers, plus Bitty Sparkle eyes embedded in Liquid Glass for her eyes.

I trimmed my faux polaroid frame from White Daisy CS and stamped the center piece with the chevron background image by inking it on the pad with a side to side swiping motion to add extra texture to the background. The sentiment is paper pieced and selectively inked to use just the words I wanted. This set has a bunch of sentiments! I used medium sparkles for the thought bubbles leading to my multi-layered stamped thought bubble. I finished off with some hot pink stitching around the card edge. I love that extra pop of pink!

I'm linking this to the Paper Issues Shades of Grey Challenge...cause I loves me some Grey, and you should check out the fabulous projects going on there if you love Grey as much as me!

I don't know whether it's just me or if everybody else experiencing issues with your
blog. It appears as though some of the written text on your posts
are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is
happening to them too? This could be a issue with my internet browser because I've had this happen before.

Appreciate it
