Blog Hop 2014 Green Team Intro

 Blog Hop Blinkie

January 31, 2014

Can you believe Cuttin' and Stampin' Challenge Blog has been going for over a year now? It has gone by so fast and we have had so much fun creating and sharing projects with you.  Starting the first of the year we decided to make a few changes.  These changes include bringing you different types of projects, and to do that we needed increase the number of members on the team.  We also decided to split the team in to two.

We hope you will all enjoy the great new variety of project you are about to see from the Green team.  I'm going to start you off with an on going calendar I've been working on.  I really like using the different products to create.  

I used some white embossing glaze with a Heidi Swapp mask to create the floating hearts.  The paper is from the Crate Paper Love Notes collection The chipboard hearts are from Um Wow Studios and I used 4 different colors of Dylusion Sprays to color them.  

I used a Jaded Blossom Stamp set to create the calendar and stamp the month. 

I used the Paper Smooches Always and Forever die set.  I left the Always as the shadow cut and curled the paper up a little bit.  the & and forever where cut after the paper was attached to some foam tape.  I also arranged the red heart paper so that it looked like the forever is coming through the paper.

Now it's time to Meet the rest of the Green Team.  They are an awesome bunch of women and I'm sure you will enjoy what they have to show you. 

Your next stop is Michele with Stuff by Belle. 

Be sure to stop by each of them and welcome them to our 2014 Design Team.  We will have a drawing for each day of the hop.  Just leave a comment below and at each stop along the way.  We will announce blog winners on Friday along with our regular weekly winners.
