It’s a Clearsnap CardMaker Hop!

FabFlamingos-sd

Welcome to our hop in combination with the Clearsnap designers! If you got here from the Rose’s blog then you’re in the right place, but no worries if you just happened along, I’ll have the hop list for you at the end of this post!

Also, Clearsnap will be hosting a giveaway of $50 worth of ColorBox products!! Woohoo!!

ClearsnapLogoRevsion

generously sent the CardMaker team an assortment of ColorBox Chalk inks. I already own quite a few of the colors, so getting some new colors was a real treat!! I love the coverage the pads give!

I tried something a little different with my first sample.

FabFlamingos

I took Splash and Chambray direct to paper for my background, giving a water effect for my flamingos stamped in Cheeky and Splash. The sentiment was stamped in Cheeky and Plumeria using a stamp positioner.
I stamped another flamingo, die cut and sponged the edges.
My base piece is just white cardstock with only the edges colored by taking the Cheeky pad DTP (direct to paper) then attached to a top-fold base card.

RideEmCowboySunburst

Here is another using a silhouette image inked in Chambray, sentiment in Lipstick Red, and the stenciled die in Yellow Ochre. The red base layer was done the same as above, edges only.

Here is the entire hop list. I hope you have enjoyed it so far! Now it’s time to send you on to Dana’s blog for her inky creations!

Love your cards! Looks like several of us had the idea to create backgrounds. So easy to do with the juicy chalk pads.
