Summer 2010 New Product Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to our Close to my Heart New Product Blog Hop! Over 40 Fabulous Close to my Heart Consultants are celebrating the upcoming release of the Summer 2010 Idea Book by giving you a Sneak Peak of some of the great products available in the new Idea Book starting May 1st.

If you have come here from Carrie's blog, you are on the right path.  This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one. Here we go!

The images on this card are from the stamp set "Bowl of Cherries", which is exclusive to the Cherry-O Workshop-on-the-Go kit. I inked up the bowl image in Buttercup ink and then "rolled" the edges of the image in Chocolate ink and stamped it for a little dimension. Two of the cherries were stamped with the same technique. First I inked the cherry image in Cranberry and then stamped it on scratch paper. Then I
"rolled the edges of the cherry back in Cranberry for some detail. The leaves were made the same way, with Ponderosa Pine and Chocolate inks.

The card design is from Jeanette Lynton's Wishes book. The layout is called "Sweet & Simple". I *love* this book!

Colors used: Ponderosa Pine, Buttercup, Cranberry, Chocolate, White Daisy

Now "Hop" on over to Maranda's blog to see her work. Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas and see the great new paper and My Acrylix stamp sets.
