CTMH June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month blog hop featuring the adorable set, "Life is Tweet". You may have found your way here from Krista's blog.  I have a little something special to share this month.  I used the set to create a "Magic Card".  The best way to show the magic is in a very short video....

This magical card was created using the Life is Tweet stamp set, the Florentine Paper Pack, cardstock in Creme Brulee and White Daisy, Black Stazon Ink, Black Archival Ink, Twilight Ink (applied with a foam tool), Paradise Paper Flowers, Sparkles from the blue & green assortment and Baker's Twine (Paradise and Neutral assortments).  The bird was colored using Copic markers.  The magic is created using a transparency sheet and a hidden pocket.  Can you figure out how it works?

I also have a couple of circle cards to share because my "followers" would be so disappointed if I did not have circle cards. I continue to be a circle card addict.  This card is made using only cardstock and ink in Sweet Leaf, Lagoon and Bamboo.  Add some sparkles and ribbon and you have a quick and easy card.

This next card uses the Roxie Papers, Black and Desert Sand Inks and embellished with Durables Studs.  The bird image was colored by placing a mask around the outside of the bird image and applying ink with the CTMH Foam Tool.  If you don't like to "color" this is a great way to cheat.

The bloghop continues on at Michelle's blog.  Have fun and Happy Stamping!  Georgia
