New Product Blog Hop using ProPlayer

Today is August 1st, a new month, a new beginning and that also means a New Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book & Catalog!!

I am participating in a New Product Blog Hop with my fellow Close to my Heart Consultants and am excited to share a double page layout and some cards I created using the new paper pack ProPlayer!

I started out working with the new ProPlayer Workshop on the Go Kit.  On the WOTG Kit layout, I didn't completely follow the instuctions, I changed a few things up and decided to go with more of a gaming theme for mine.  I know just the pictures I will be putting on here of my hubby and sons playing old video games!  My mom and stepdad came up for a visit last month and mom brought my old (circa 1981) Atari 2600 system and games to us.  It was so fun watching our boys play these dated and simple graphic games!!

Supplies used all CTMH - ProPlayer WOTG Kit
Spray Pen with Ruby & Whisper inks

Next I made a Happy Birthday Spin Card.  As you can see the circle on the front of the card can spin around to reveal both sides.  The "happy birthday" side and in the next picture the "present" side.  These new cards are such fun! 

This shows the inside of the card decorated using ProPlayer papers.  
Supplies used all CTMH - White Daisy Circle Spin Card
M-size stamp sets - Heartfelt Birthday Wish and A Little Gift
Ruby and Pacifica Cardstock

This card is made using ProPlayer papers, the new Maximum Power stamp set, if you know me then you know I'm a Mustang girl!  There is also a Monster Truck & an old Chevelle in this stamp set, a very masculine set.  The sketch is also from the new Make It From Your Heart, Volume 2 book.  And you will notice the new Ruby Chevron Ribbon used on this card also, I am loving this ribbon!

This fun little 3" x 3" sparkly snowflake card was made using ProPlayer paper and the new M-size Single Snowflake stamp set stamped with Mini Pacifica Pigment Ink.

This picture shows the sparkle I created on the snowflake a little better.  I used the mini pigment ink pad to stamp it initially, then covered it with a combination of Clear Detail Embossing Powder & Prisma Glitter and then heat set it with the Craft Heater.  I like how it turned out.

So that is my ProPlayer creations so far, I hope you enjoy seeing what I created!  Check out other beautiful artwork created by my fellow Consultant sisters below and come back to my blog for more new artwork in the coming days!
