Chantilly Blog Hop

Hi!  If you came from Traci's blog, you are in the right place! If you just jumped here, check out our blog at for a complete list of blog participants.   I made a card using the Chantilly line of Close To My Heart papers.  The card pattern is from the CTMH Originals pattern book, Diamond Stack pattern. The card is 5 1/2 inches square.  I used Buttercup cardstock as the card base covered with Chantilly papers and inked the edges with Cotton Candy pigment ink.  The "stitching" was stamped in black ink using the Stitched Together stamp set.  I cut the pinwheels at 1 1/4 inch using the Cricut Artiste cartridge.   I used the same cartridge to cut the "hello" word balloon.  The word balloon is stamped with Pear pigment ink and matted on chantilly papers.  I just increased the size of the word balloon by 1/4 inch for each paper and cut the little tag part of the word balloon off, then covered that area with another pinwheel.  Sparkles on the pinwheels complete the card.

This paper line really makes me think of spring and lots of cute ideas for scrapbooking too!  We hope you can find some inspiration yourself as you browse our projects. You can find all of the items I used at Close To My Heart. Thanks for hopping with us!!
