I used the Digital cuts that are included with the HOLIDAY CHEER special to cut the snow globe out of the Silver Foil Paper. The Sapphire cardstock was embossed with the new Snowflake Embossing Folder. I also used the Holiday Trimming Stamp Set to stamp the Happy Holidays. I used White Pigment ink and then used White Embossing power. I did do this prior to using the snowflake embossing folder. I then wrapped Silver Embellishing Thread around the bottom. I used the Whimsical Holiday stamp set with Bluebird, Carolina and Sapphire inks to stamp the stars and snowflakes. I mixed the blue sequins from the Loose Craft On and Silver Sequins.

I also made up a few of the tag/ornaments as the special intended. I love that there is a variety of options with this special.

I had to make one as an ornament of my son. I love that this can be the perfect gift for a grandparent one just for us to hang on our tree. I picked out some of the red sequins from the Holiday Loose Sequins and mixed with Silver Sequins.

Here is another with the Gold Sequins and Gold Glitter Paper.

Here is one more. I used the Dark Red Marker to color the base then went over it with the Red Shimmer Brush.

Heart 2 Heart ~ National Stamping Month

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This is a fun challenge!! Close to My Heart has two awesome stamp sets they are offering with this celebration which you can use or simply use any stamp on your project. Remember you do need to use at least one Close to My Heart product.

I have two cards to share with you today. The first is a fall themed one.

I love the images with the Fall stamp set Giving Thanks. So I had fun with Saffron, Sangria, Paprika and Sage inks. I stamped the rest of the images with Espresso Pigment ink and then played with our new Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers. They are so fun and easy to blend!! I also added a bit of the Sangria Ribbon and some Wooden Arrows.

I also designed this winter card using the Dash of Joy Stamp set. I stamped the images in Versamark Ink and then heat embossed them with White Embossing Powder. I cut the Silver Glitter Paper using the Rectangle Stitched Thin Cut. I added a bit of the Silver Embellishing Thread and I piece of Velum to add another layer to the card.. I am so happy that we have Stickles!! I have to admit I have sort of forgot how fun these are to work with. I wanted to add some color besides the Sapphire, Daisy White and Silver. I used the Black Diamond, Christmas Red and Silver Stickles.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until September 30th to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Heart 2 Heart ~ National Scrapbooking Month

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

National Scrapbooking Month is all about getting scrapbooking completing pages and celebrating our wonderful craft.  I have to admit I am totally loving the Cut Above Layout Kits and The World is Yours does not disappoint. I am also loving the Craft with Heart subscription! With my subscription I have been completing so many more layouts!  Here is The World is Yours Cut Above Layouts.

With this layout I added a few of the Into the Wild Wood Shapes and some of the Bronze Sequins. Here are the pages closer up.

I did change the size of the two lower outer photos. They are 2×3 inches instead of the 2×2 inch photos the kit suggests.

The second layout in the kit is great too!

With this layout I did not change or add anything.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until May 31th to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Catscrapbooking ~ Close to My Heart ~ ctmh ~ Love Blossoms ~ thank you ~ overlay ~ cards ~flower

I used an overlay on top of Sweet Leaf cardstock. The lattice overlay is from Artbooking Cricut cartrige which you can find HERE. I then cut the rectangular edges to make it softer. I used Thistle cardstock behind the White Daisy stamped sentiment.

catscrapbooking ~ closet to my heart ~ ctmh ~ love blossoms ~ mother's day card This card is the almost the same as one in the workshop.  I made a couple of adjustments. First I changed the color cardstock to Raspberry.  I then colored the flowers instead of leaving them white.  I also modified the sentiment to be a Mother’s Day Card.

I had so much fun with this paper pack making Valentine’s Day cards.

Don’t you just love this paper pack?

I love the fun cards I designed for my upcoming Card Workshop using these.

For this I used my Cricut to cut the hearts and letters.  I paired it with Crusin’ to Adventure Stamp & Thin Cuts. I stamped the cute dump truck in Candy Apple and added a little Red Shimmer Trim.

This card pattern is in the Happy Heart Workshop but I modified it a bit.  I added the large stitched heart with the Stitched Hearts Thin Cuts.

I love the dinosaurs in the Something Fierce ~ Scrapbooking stamp set and though it would make a great Valentine’s Day Card.  I used Raspberry, Pixie and Charcoal inks.

I did use a couple retired thin cuts with this card. I made a stencil by randomly placing hearts in a rectangle and then had my Cricut cut it with our Stencil Sheets.  I used the Texture Paste ~ Transparent Gloss. I would love to know which is your favorite of the Valentines Cards. Leave me a comment on which one you like the best.
