September with Jeanette's Archived Stamps Blog Hop

Welcome to our September Blog Hop featuring Jeanette's Archived Stamps. You will see creations from our participants that will include 1 of 5 stamp sets that Close To My Heart has taken out of Jeanette's Archieved collection.  To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.
We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as I am the first stop on this hop.

I choose to use Teddy Bear Birthday (A1143) which retails for only $6.95.

I used Proplayer Paper and Ruby Cardstock for this card. I added a strip of Silver Shimmer Trim to give it a pop. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Archival Black Ink, as well as all the images. Using the Archival Black Ink will help prevent smudges when colouring with the Alchohol Markers.
I used multiple shades of brown to colour in the teddy bear, Chocolate, Cocoa and Saddle. I used the Blending pen along with the Ink Pads to add the colour to our cute teddy bear. The cake, presents, party hat and the 1 are all coloured using the Alcohol Markers. Pacifica, Outdoor Denim, Ruby, Slate, Whisper and a few others were used for fine details. I used the mini glue dots to add the layered look to the presents, and bear as well as the party hat and cake.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Darla of "Caution: Crafting is Contagious".
 If you get lost along the way, you can head back here as I have the entire list of hoppers posted.

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. Join us again in October when we will be featuring the Base and Bling line.  We hope you will join us again on November 15th.

If you would like to purchase any of the items used to make this card you can shop on my website, or contact me via email, or contact your own local consultant.
