Stampers with an Attitude January Blog Hop


I'm happy to be part of the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop this month. You may have just come from Tammy Lubick's lovely blog post. We are showcasing papercrafts made with the new Close To My Heart Charlotte paper pack and/or an Easter theme. I chose to do both, to use this lovely paper to make some of my Easter cards. All of my cards use only this paper pack and White Daisy Cardstock. I loved this brand new type of paper pack because it has 10 different papers with subtle patterns almost like cardstock that makes more interesting backgrounds! There are also two pages of double-sided picture-my-life type 4"x6" or 2"x3" card pieces I plan to use for titles, card panels, or, of course, pocket scrapbooking.

I chose to use the Stamp set, Rejoice, along with my Cricut to make these cards. I mostly used Cricut Art Philosophy, but included a cut from Artiste, and Artfully Sent each. If you have these cartridges and use the Explore you can use my cut file here.  You can see the list of ingredients for each one at the end of each card.

Art Philosophy Cricut cuts (lacy square 3.75", flowers 0.75"), Rejoice stamp set, White Shimmer Trim, Gold Bling Gems, Charlotte paper pack and gray flower circle from Charlotte Complements, Sorbet Ink, Quatrefoil embossing folder for darker sorbet panel,  Versamark Ink pad for the cross, Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder.
