March Hearts of the West Blog Hop

Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop!

If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features Close to my Heart Consultants from all over Canada showing you their projects. The Hearts of the West team was founded by Nancy Klein.

This months challenge is using the Hopscotch Paper Pack, brought to you by the Seasonal Expressions 1, hand picked from Nancy Klein.  This Seasonal Expressions is good until March 31st so you have a month left to order the items that are marked with a timer.  
The Hopscotch Paper Pack is only available until the end of March so I you love it and want some pick some up before it is gone.  It is perfect for spring, summer, kids and playground pictures.  I love how bright and fun it is.
If you came from Sonia's Blog then you're in the right place, this is a go around blog hop so you can start anywhere! Just in case, the full list will be at the bottom. So, as always, grab your coffee, tea, water, relax, and hop around the team with us.
Your next stop is Janet's Blog.

I would like to share with you a card I made using leftover scraps from the Hopscotch Workshop on the Go kit and using the Happy Birds stamp set.

Here is another picture of it that is a little closer up.  I used some of the Shinhan Markers to color in the bird (Light Orange, Pastel Green and Turquoise Blue).  I then used Liquid Glass to make it glossy and 3-D.

If you have any questions of how I made this please send me a message.  I would be happy to share how to make this card with you.  I used a pattern out of Making it From Your Heart 2.

The stamp of the month for March is Choose Happy and with a $50 qualifying order it can be yours for $5.  This stamp is available for the month of March only and can be purchased for $19.75 if you don't have a $50 order.

  1. The bird is definitely my favourite part! It really adds a great dimensionality to the card. Nicely done!

  2. I also love the little bird! It pops right out!

  3. I love your card Km - especially how you colored the bird! It's adorable - thanks for sharing!

  4. I always use my Liquid Glass as a glue now and totally forget to use it as a glaze. I love how your bird turned out, it's a great reminder to use some of those products that have been around forever! Great job :-)

  5. Very nice card! I love how you did the sentiment.

  6. lovely card. I love the feel of simplicity (even though I know colouring isn't as simple as it seems.

  7. great card! I love how your little bird seems like it's about to take off!
