Central Park Paper Suite www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

This bright, fun, colourful & playful paper suite is full of houses & hot air balloons as well as fab patterns that can be used for any theme.

Today I am sharing a cute card where I actually used one of the Cut apart Picture My Life cards. Don’t be afraid of cutting these up or covering (as I have here) these cards up.

The green card was actually perfect to create a matt for this card. I also used the zip strips and the Central Park Sequins – which are see through.

 

I used the Heartfelt Thanks as my main stamped image, coloured with ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers. The extra flowers are from the Many Congratulations stamp set.

The A Bushel & a Peck – June Stamp of the Month features a sweet girl, apples & lots of “I love you a lot” type sayings. I adore this sweet girl image & found her perfect to use for a number ideas.

A Bushel & a Peck - June Stamp of the Month www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

The sayings were a little different for me – I think it is just not something I would normally hear. But it was fun to find out what a bushel & a peck were & what they meant.

It is a wonderful way to say that I love your more.

 

 

My First card I combine the sweet girl with Fresh Air Paper Pack & used one of the copper foil banners for the Thanks. I had fun fussy cutting some leaves to create my little cluster on the side.

My next card I played with inks & paints & created a background with white embossing & washed out stamped ink flowers using the Beautiful Friendship – Scrapbooking stamp set. I coloured the girl in with pink tones to match into the background.

The Color Your Life – April Stamp of the Month is full of wonderful words, including ones that encourage you to colour in. I love the long borders, the arrow & leaf branch, as these images can be used on any card or scrapbook layout. The words are perfect for scrapbooking, however Celebrate is a word I like to use on Birthday cards.

Color Your Life - April Stamp of the Month www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

I decided to focus on the long decorative borders in the stamp set & use the word Celebrate. I paired the stamp of the month with Gimme Some Sugar paper & the butterflies from the Chelsea Gardens cardmaking stamp set.

I really like the colour combo of the Pewter & the colour of the year Bashful.
