So Hard to Say Goodbye Blog Hop

We each have favorite CTMH products that are about to retire.  We're highlighting these on our blog hop today. You may have just come from Jean McNulty's blog. If you'd like to see the entire list of participants, you can find them on Melinda Everitt's blog.

I'll find it hard to say goodbye to the Rustic Home Fundamentals paper pack and all of the ribbons. I enjoy using the woodgrain papers in that pack for Christmas cards and masculine cards. I'll also miss the coloring with the Blending Pens when mine dry up!

The woodgrain papers can also be girly. Pink flowers and some Sea Glass glitter paper look great on the opposite side of the woodgrain paper which has a gray tone. The flowers are from one of the stamp sets re-introduced for this month only, April Word Puzzle.

Now you're ready to go on to Tammy Lubick's blog.

Additional Products used:
Thinking of You card: Homegrown stamps stamped with Cocoa and Desert Sand inks, sponged background with Sweet Leaf and New England Ivy for grass, Glacier for sky. I picked up Desert Sand ink with the Blending Pen to color the barn and horse, New England Ivy for the tree tops. 

Keep Dreaming leaves stamped with Cocoa ink.

Love BOTH your cards. Great work! I especially love the barn and horse.

I love the rustic looks of your cards. I need to incorporate that look more often. Thanks for the inspiration!

Great cards! I love how the first one is masculine and the second is so feminine.

Jean McNulty said...

Beautiful them both!

What a great way to promote these Rustic papers by showing masculine and feminine cards! I love how you stamped on the leaves on the woodgrain paper in the first card. Thanks for sharing!
