Hearts of the West team blog hop, August edition!


Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop! August Edition. If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features Close to my hearts Consultants from all over Canada It is founded by Nancy Klein.
This months challenge is a color challenge brought to you by Design seed and hand picked from Nancy Klein.
A fun few facts about August: It is National Picnic Month, Also this month's birth flowers are the beautiful gladiolus and the poppy!
If you came from Chelsey Vorosmarty then you are in the right place, this is a go around blog so you can start anywhere! Just in case the full list will be at the bottom. SO as always grab your coffee, tea, water, relax and hop around the team with us.
Here is the details of our late summer projects!

I'm not really a card maker but you wouldn't know it by all my recent projects. These pop up card boxes are so much fun to make that I just can't help it! 

For this project I used the Celebration stamp set for the cupcake, the gifts & for the sentiments. This stamp set is included with the Cricut Art Philosophy bundle Z1686.

The top of the cupcakes were colored using our new ShinHan alcohol markers (p.180 of Idea Book). I have to say, they are AMAZING!!!  Excellent quality and at a great price.


I also used the 3-D foam tape Z2060 for the gifts on each panel to add extra dimension. 

I decided to try something I've been seeing lately on different sites, the masking tape technique. I used extra pieces I had left from my pop up card box.


It didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped but this is definitely something I will try again! I used the same stamp set as mentioned above for the cupcake and I also used Joyful Birthday B1419 for the sentiment. 


For the inside of my card I used the new chevron border punch (LOVE!) and the sentiment is from Your own kind of wonderful stamp set D1627. 

You can purchase any of the supplies used for this project here.
