CTMH Australasian 'La Vie En Rose' Blog Hop


Hello and welcome aboard our CTMH ' La Vie En Rose' Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Shaunna's Passionate about Pages then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please read, enjoy and join in by following the link at the end of this post. The hop is a circle so keep hopping using the links at the end of each post.

Our 'La Vie En Rose Palette'
 has a beautiful paper pack with a feature paper of the roses and flowers and then all other papers are a patterned black and white. I love the black and white so this project focuses on that.  It can also be used for any themed photos or craft.....The compliments and assortments match really well. ...the hard work is done for you! It also features a Workshop on the Go pack to make album pages or cards and a stamp set exclusive and suitable for your favorite colour palette...great savings too. The La Vie En Rose products are available from the Annual Inspirations but focused this month with Close To My Heart.

This card idea uses the white blank card and the stamp set from the Workshop on the Go pack and an assortment of black and gold embellishments. I added the ink blot stamp set D1660 as a background. The shimmer trim, gold bling, black and gold ribbon along with a gold base and bling circle charm just set this card off.

Be sure to check out this range of beautiful products at and now hop over to fellow consultant Doris.... Creative Inspirations to see her creative ideas

CTMH January 2016 'Beloved Bouquet' Stamp of the Month

 Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you
 have arrived here from Denise's Blog Scrap Stamp Share then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. This hop is a circle so keep clicking the link at the end of each post.

January's Stamp of the Month S1601.....'Beloved Bouquet'......  is available exclusively throughout January only.... for just $27 or for $7.50 when you spend $75. There are 14 individual stamps in this set and they are flowers and lovely sentiments so they are just wonderful and can be added to any project. This stamp set has so many possibilities so check out all the posts for loads of ideas for cards and scrapbook pages.

The benefits of this stamp set are the double image...shape and can choose the colour of the solid image and then select a different colour for the outline. It is easier to stamp the solid shape first and then match the outline....easy to do as our stamps and blocks are clear! I sat and played...make sure you have a scribble piece of paper along side. I used 2nd generation stamping, masking to cluster the flowers and leaves and background techniques. I also tried the same design in different many decisions.

The card in this photo is just stamped straight onto the blank white cardstock......use an extra cutout shape of the stamp to provide a mask so you can cluster the flowers and leaves together.


This flower image is stamped on a separate piece of card and then fussy cut with our amazing scissors. The background is 1st and second generation stamping and then a little colour added with a blending pen and the acrylic block as a palette containing some of the dab over image. The flower is adhered with 3D foam tape. The edge is 2 embossed lines using our scoreboard to create a border and mounted on matching cardstock for the flower image and ink colour. Which colour do you like?

 "Beloved Bouquet" Stamp of the Month is only available until 31st January from Wendy Hopper your CTMH consultant I'd love you to leave a comment and follow my blog before heading off to the next stop. Check out ...Jenny Gilbert The Creative Heart   Oh and Happy New Year to you!!
