September Cross Canada Blog Hop - Our Favourite Things

Welcome to our September Blog Hop featuring our Favourite New Things.  To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.  For my customers, or if you do not have a consultant and see something you would like, you may order from my website or contact me.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, and I am at the beginning.  If you started elsewhere, then you came from Candra of Paper DragonFleur and you are in the right place! 

This post continues the tutorial shown in my previous post.  This time I am using the sponge and the blending pen with the Exclusive Ink Pads to colour my image.  I will be using some of my favourite new products to complete my card.  
I used the chocolate mini pigment ink that comes with the Z2503 Basics set to stamp the image from A1157 Quick Cards - Island Greetings.  I used our sponge to apply ink in two of my favourite new colours Glacier and Thistle.  You can use the sponge whole or cut it into wedges.  

Next used the blending pen with the Topiary stamp pad to colour in the stems and buds.  I continued to sponge over the image with Desert Sand stamp pad.

I assembled my card using the  Make It From Your Heart Volume 2, Pattern 30.  Other favourite new products I used were the Paper Fundaments Whimsey Assortment and the Silver Sequins Assortment.  Cardstocks used were White Daisy, Kraft and  Topiary.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Michelle of My Creations With Michelle. Michelle also has the complete blog list posted in case you get lost along the way. 

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring Trick or Treats, for Halloween.  So mark October 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.
