Damask Divas Chalk It Up Blog Hop

It's August and you know what that means!!!!  The new Annual Inspirations Idea Book is LIVE!!!  SOOO.......Welcome to the Damask Divas Blog Hop featuring the Chalk It Up paper pack!  If you came here from Sarah's blog then you are in the right place.  If you've hopped here by chance, be sure to check out the full list of blog participants on the Damask Divas Blog. 

I've seen a new technique all over YouTube and Facebook.......the "masking tape stamping" technique.  So I took a stab at it and made this 5x5in card....which surprisingly went together very quickly!!  Don't you just love the effect?! You simply press a strip of masking tape (must use the blue painter's tape kind, the regular kind is too sticky) across your ink pad and then press it onto your cardstock. Then stamp your sentiment and other designs over that, using black ink.  SO Easy!!!

I hope you have a blast seeing all the great projects with this new paper pack....and an even MORE blast checking out the new Idea Book.  You'll be in awe for days! :)

Kraft die-cut card (I cut a 6x6in card down to 5x5in)

July Stamp of the Month "Circus Alphabet"

Happy 4th of July everyone!!  I've had a relatively quiet day at home....except for the neighbors testing their fireworks!  Maybe we'll get a free show from our front porch?? Anyway, since I had some free time today, I spent the afternoon in my scrap room.

I used the My Creations Hip Pics Album, the Free To Be Me paper pack, and the July Stamp of the Month "Circus Alphabet."  You can get this stamp set for $5 with any $50 qualifying purchase, but only until July 31st!  This is any easy album to embellish as little or as much as you want...then just add pictures! I used various other stamp sets to embellish the pages. I colored the title piece using Copic markers. The pages have a slot in the top to put the pictures into the pages.  All products used are Close to My Heart except for the metal arrows (those are Tim Holtz).

Bow is from Ariana Assortment; stamp on right is from Enjoy the Little Things stamp set in Lagoon ink

These pages were stamped using the Enjoy the Little Things stamp set in Cotton Candy, Pacifica, Honey, Cranberry & Topiary inks
