Tinsel Time



Good Morning Crafters!

This morning I come to you from our Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog.  This week our challenge was called "Tinsel Time" and we had to use Lagoon, Silver, and Black in our projects.  I actually love these colors so this was a fun challenge for me :)


I made an A2 size card measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I ended up using a white piece of cardstock measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  I then decided to "make" my own designer paper using our stamp set "Your Own Kind of Wonderful" (D1627).  

I stamped the butterflies from the set using Lagoon ink - LOVE that color!

I stamped the sentiment using our Black ink.

I used our Silver Shimmer Trim for the "silver" portion of my card - placing a strip across the middle of the card.

I used our Scallop Border Punch on the 4" x 4 3/4" piece of Black cardstock.

SUPPLIES USED




I hope you enjoyed my project for our challenge this week - can't wait to see what you come up with!

Just link your project by clicking here. This link will take you directly to our blog.  Don't forget to check out my fellow design team members' blogs to see what they created for this challenge :)

Have a wonderfully crafty day!

Cutie Pie


Hello Crafters!

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month's stamp set from Close to My Heart is "Cutie Pie" and is available exclusively through your Close to My Heart consultant from December 1 - 31, 2014. You can purchase this stamp for only $5 with a qualifying purchase!



For this blog hop, we have approximately 62 Close to My Heart consultants sharing their creations using this month's Stamp of the Month and other great CTMH products on their blogs.  This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  Here we go!

If you came here from Traci's blog at Create with Traci, then you're in the right place!

To see the full list of participants, please click here.

For my post today, I created these cute cards inspired by our Annual Inspirations book using this adorable Stamp of the Month - Cutie Pie:







You can find this card on page 16 of the Annual Inspirations Idea Book. The top one is most similar to the one in the book.  The bottom one is a variation where I used our Durable Triangle Studs instead of the glitter chevrons.  To cut the chevrons, use our Chevron Border Punch.

I have created a video of how I made these cards which I was unable to upload tonight due to technological issues (argghhhh!!!) - so not happy with Microsoft, etc.  I will try and get that uploaded and edited shortly for you.

No Rules Monday


Good Morning Crafters!!

I know I haven't been posting a lot lately. I had a great reason -- my laptop crashed!  Oh my goodness, I have to tell you - I had no idea how dependent I was on my laptop until the hard drive crashed and I realized that my entire life was on it!  It was incredibly frustrating and set me back about a month but I feel blessed that I was able to get it taken care of!

Today I come to you from Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog where I am a Design Team Member.  Our challenge this week had NO RULES!  What??? How awesome is that!  

So I give to you a "thank you" card I made for one my card classes:




I used our Pathfinding paper for this "thank you" card.  I love the fall colors in this pack!  This is an A2 size card measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I used our Artiste Cricut cartridge to cut out the speech bubbles.  You can find the image on page 65, D5, Accent 2, < b > and cut at 2 1/4", 2 1/2" and 2 3/4".

Here is a list of the supplies I used to make this card:





Don't forget to stop by my fellow Design Team members' blogs to see what they made for this week's challenge AND to add your own crafty creation!  You can do that by clicking here.
