December CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop!

The CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop starts today! I am just one of many other ladies participating. If you came here from  Haley then your on the right track. Or you can start here and click on the next one below and you will follow the blogs in a circle until you come back here. 

This month's Blog Hop is featuring our beautiful My Stickease. The one I chose is the Roxie My Stickease (X7140C) and it matches the Roxie Level 2 Paper Pack (X7140B) that I also used for the card. You will get two sheets of cardstock weight self-sticking stickers. Wow, that almost ties up my tongue.

 These are some of the different parts. Above is the banner that I attached to a piece of the Roxie B&T that is mostly the Desert Sand color. I cut around the outside of the sticker leaving a tiny edge of color showing. Now that our B&T is cardstock weight and the stickease is cardstock weight, the double layers give this piece stability so I could roll it around a pen to give it this rounded out effect.

I put Liquid Glass on these corner stickers and added them to the 3x3 piece of B&T. It really gives this square of paper a different look, don't you think?
 This next photo is showing a larger sticker that I used for the main focal point. I attached it to a piece of the same Desert Sand B&T and cut around the stamp leaving an edge of color showing all the way around to make it pop off the background. I used a black heart sticker like the one I am holding in front and added it to the heart on the big sticker. Then, I added some Liquid Glass to the inside of the line making it puff out. 

 These flowers were cut from our new Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge on page 21. I cut them at 2",1 1/2" and 1 1/4" out of Tulip cardstock. I actually only used 3 but wanted to show you what they looked like before I added the Liquid Glass and the glitter. Pizzazz!!!!!

Here is the finished product! Kind of a collage look. The background is cut from Sorbet cardstock. The centers of the flowers are My Stickease with self sticking pearls in the centers. I stacked about 3 of our 3-D foam tape in the center of the banner to keep the rounded look. This card was made from the pattern in the Wishes Card Program book and I used the Delightful Dots pattern on page 53 tweaking a few things of course.

 Thanks so much for looking and visiting me today. I hope this will inspire you to try making a card using My Stickease for yourself and see how fast and easy it is. Now, move on to the next blog, Melinda and get more great ideas. 

I will put everyone's name in a pot that comments on this blog and the lucky winner will win this card.
