Timberline Blog Hop

Damask Diva Timberline Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  Welcome to my blog!  This month our blog hop is featuring the  Timberline paper pack.  

First I made a masculine card, maybe my first!  I used the stamp set from the Lollydoodle WOTG, for the sentiment and to make a faux wood background I put behind the earth image.  I stamped the earth image with CTMH pigment inks, then colored with CTMH alcohol and Copic Spica markers.  The You mean the World to me stamp is a retired CTMH stamp set.

The next card I made is my first shaker card.  I have seen tons of them on Pinterest, but never tried one.  One of my fellow Damask Divas, Hillary Harris, made a gorgeous shaker card she shared with our group.  After seeing hers, I knew I had to try one!  I used the Stamp of the Month from May for the I love you to the moon and back sentiment.  The other sentiment stamp comes with the Artbooking Collection, so does the arrow and star accent stamps.  For the star, I stamped it first.  Then I covered the back of the stamped image with some purple shimmer trim, and cut it out.  I LOVED the stars and moon zip strip that comes with this paper pack!  I punched holes in the stars and placed various shimmer trim colors behind them.  I used teal and purple shimmer trim I cut out with a hole punch, and some sequins for the shaker bits.  I love how this turned out, and shaker cards may turn into an obsession for me!

Thanks for joining me!  Next up on the hop is Amie Kiger, you won't want to miss what she has to share!  If you just jumped in, you can find the entire list for the hop at the Damask Divas Blog.
