Owls Owls Everywhere!

This month I have seen so many Owl projects, including my own!  This card was "copied" from my good friend Lisa while we were scrapping together last weekend.  I put it together and pulled it apart 3 times before it finally looked like this:

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #68

This card is based on the Atlantic Hearts Sketch #68 which can be seen on their challenge blog this week.  Once again I used the Close to My Heart August Stamp of the Month (Love that stamp set) to create my card.  I also used the Chevron and Honeycomb Embossing Folders on the Flaxen and Sorbet cardstock.  The printed paper is the "Chalk it Up" paper pack from the new CTMH Idea Book.

Three Amigo's Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos August 2014 Close to My Heart Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. On the 3rd day of each month we will feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through

This month we are using the August Stamp of the Month for our project.  I also used the new Scaredy Cat Paper Pack and made a Birthday Card out of a Halloween Stamp set and Paper Pack.






For the card base I cut a piece of White Cardstock 12" x 4" and scored it at 2", 4" and 8". 
I used the new ShinHan Markers from CTMH to color in the owl.  

And here is the Halloween version of the card:


You can buy this stamp set for $5 with a $50 purchase from my CTMH Website!  It is only available in August and will not be sold after August 31, 2014. 

I also invite you to check out and "Like" my new CTMH facebook page where I will be posting monthly specials and artwork I create. 

Now "HOP" on over to Susan's Blog and  Lisa's Blog to see what they have created this month!

This card is based on the Atlantic Hearts Sketch #66 which can be seen on their challenge blog this week. I used the new Close to My Heart "Brushed" paper pack, Stamp #D1627 "Your Own Kind of Wonderful" and Flamingo Dots.  The butterfly was stamped in black and colored in with the ShinHan Tender Pink and Pastel Green markers.

Atlantic Hearts Challenge

The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #65 drawing was an easy one for me this week.  I looked at the drawing and a card idea came right to me.  Last night I finally had a chance to create my card using Close to My Heart "Confetti" Paper Pack and Stamp set D1618 "Build A Cake". I also added a strip of Purple Shimmer Trim to dress it up a bit.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #63

This is my first time using some of the new Close to My Heart Stamps and Paper for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge! As a CTMH Consultant I am able to receive new products in advance in order to create cards and scrapbbok pages for Workshops.  

For my card I used the new Stamp Sets B1462 Lovely Birthday  and C1599 Pretty Petals along with a current stamp set D1482 Love Life.  The inks I used are Sweet Leaf and the new Thistle ink and cardstock.  I used the Cricut Cartridge "Art Philosophy" to cut out the flowers.

This month we are taking the cards from the Picture My Life Collections and showing you how they can be used in different ways.  The cards were made to slide into the Page protectors to create quick and easy Scrapbook Pages.  But there is so much more you can do with them!

I've used the cards from a few different Picture My Life Kits to make Greeting Cards. 

This first one was made with a 4 x 6" card from the Skylark PML Kit: 
 





Next, the Avonlea PML Kit using one 4 x 6" and one 3 x 4" card:






And the Surf's Up Kit using one 4 x 6" and one 3 x 4" card:


And last I have a card using the Babycakes PML kit:

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #60

My card is designed from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #60.  Do you remember "Dotty For You? I loved that paper pack from Close to My Heart and still have a few pieces and scraps left from it.  I mixed it with a little "Sweet Leaf" cardstock and added the sentiment from (B1417) Perfect Fit Birthday to come up with this card:

 
Next week I will not be able to participate... I will be at the Close to My Heart Convention in Anaheim, California!  See you in two weeks!
