I Heart Us CTMH Blog Hop

If you arrived here from Lauren, welcome to the I Heart Us blog hop! Read on and hop around for heaps of inspiration.

I started out with a single sheet of I Heart Us bulk paper. One side is the stripes, the other is the black and white hearts. I took the pile of cardstock that is sitting here in my studio and picked through to match up the colors in the stripes for these cards. Stashbusting ftw. Work with what you've got!

For some reason, I have heaps of Bashful cardstock left on hand... so I went with it.

I feel like kraft cardstock is soooooooooo under-utilized. I like how it adds an instant warmth and texture to my projects. Plus, in the absence of proper coordinating colors, kraft works just as well to provide the necessary accent.

The hearts on this card come from the Let Me Show You How stampset featured in the New Consultant Kit. I don't use this set nearly as much as I could. Expect to see more of it! 😊

Ever have those days where you REALLY need a cuppa with your bestie and they've moved away?

To make these cards, I used my basic toolkit plus these materials. Click through to purchase. Basic Toolkit: (Versamat, Trimmer, Ruler, Adhesive Runner, Stamping Starter Kit, Scissors), I Heart Us Paper Packet, Blossom* Bashful* Lemon Sweet Leaf Sapphire Thistle Kraft & White Daisy Cardstocks, Candy Apple Bashful* Sugarplum Canary Sweet Leaf Lagoon Glacier and Eggplant Exclusive Inks, White Card Value Pack, Beautiful Friendship Thin Cuts Bundle*, Scallop Border Thin Cuts*, Let Me Show You How* Be You*  Sending Prayers* Card Captions* and Angel Policy Stampsets. *Retired/discounted/WSL items
