Cross Canada Blog Hop Language Stamps

Bonjour / Hola / Hello
Welcome to our March Blog Hop featuring our stamp sets that are available in French, Spanish and English. When you flip through the catalogue those stamps are identified with a World globe.
We have an amazing group of talented ladies all across Canada, and they sure would love to hear from you, so before hopping onto the next person, take a moment and leave a comment about what you loved.
If you've arrived from Carol-Anne's blog then you are in the right place! If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, and continue from East Coast to West Coast, you can start here at Michelle's blog.
Here is my card... I CASED this card from Vicki Wizniuk blog...  
This was a challenge for me as I'm a colour inside the lines kinda gal. Doodling.. what's that???  I have trouble with letting go and just this card was perfect practice to do that. I changed the embossing folder to chevron and the card stock colours to the colours that appealed to me (Raspberry & Sea Glass). What do you think??
I used the stamp set Happy to Be Friends (french)... I really loved the font used
I can't wait to give this to one of my french friends
The biggest challenge for this card was all the fussy cutting... it turned ok in the end... but my hand got a cramp from all that cutting ;}
I added some itty bitty a little bit of shimmer pen..
A must for every card I make now.
Don't forget the shimmer trim for added sparkle...

Fusion Card Challenge - Whale Hello there!

So last night I was in a mojo I decided to do a card challenge. - Fusion Card Challenge check out the linkie on the side bar here on my blog to join in.  It's always great when you can't pick a sketch or colour palette.     
Here is my finished card..

I used Sapphire, Slate, Whisper Ink... randomly stamp on Daisy White Cardstock.
Lastly I used a small piece of the Fundamentals Enchantment paper line with the mixed alpha to give it some focus...

As usual there has to be glitter... so i used the silver glitter cardstock with the 2" circle thin let.

I also used the ShinHan Art Pens - Caribbean Blue, Marine Blue & Turquoise Blue to colour in the Whale..... and finished it off with the clear shimmer pen for some more sparkle.

Plus I added the White enamel dots to add some flare & dimension to the card.

As you can see I created my own Alphabet Paper with all my alphabet stamps.  
Check out below for the Alphabet stamp sets I used currently available in the CTMH catty..

 Jennifer's Hand Alphabet
