So Sweet

This week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #92 also worked well with the Heart 2 Heart Challenge.  
This is the sketch Atlantic Hearts gave us to work with this week: 
It is a Clean and Simple Sketch, which is exactly what Heart 2 Heart was looking for this week!
I made my card using the following Close to My Heart products: White Daisy and Buttercup Cardstock, C1601 "Nursery Charms" Stamp Set, Black Ink, Shin Han Markers and the Chevron Border Punch.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #91

I have been working on cads for an upcoming Craft Show (in March) and decided to use the Atlantic Hearts Sketch #91 for this Mother's Day Card. I used a current Close to my Heart Paper Pack "Brushed" but dug out some older CTMH stamp sets for this card (B1210 Flutter and C1577 Mother's Day).

Because of the design of this sketch I made this a 5 x 7 card instead of my usual 4 x 5-1/2. The butterflies are stamped in Honey and Cotton Candy ink and embellished with CTMH Sparkles Assortment and Flamingo Dots.  I also tied a piece of Pixie Twine across the left side of the card.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #90

This is my take on the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #90.  This is also the first time I am using the Close to My Heart  January Stamp of the Month, "This Moment" and the CTMH "Heartstrings" paper pack, all perfect for a Valentine's Day Card!


Participating in the Atlantic Hearts Weekly Sketch Challenge is a great way to get all your cards made for the year!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #89

For Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #89 I used Close to My Heart
Cardstock: Thistle, Canary white Daisy
Ink: Thistle, Canary, Sweet Leaf, Desert Sand, Honey and Black
Stamp Sets:D1602 A Budding Friendship , D1629 Just to Say
Since the colors were bright & cheery I decided to make it a card that would be used in the Springtime, and Mother's Day seemed to go along with the flowery design.

3 Amigo's Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos January 2015 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 making our project using Embossing. I have samples of 2 different kinds of Embossing.  My first card is made with the Close to My Heart "Heart" Embossing Folder.  I used Hollyhock, Pixie, Black and White Daisy Cardstock.  CTMH Stamp Sets used: D1560 Holiday Tags and C1305 Family. (I also used the Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge)

The next card is made using Heat Embossing.  I used Black Cardstock and Gold Shimmer Trim for the border.  Tools needed for heat embossing include a Heat Gun, Versa Mark Ink Pad and (Gold) Embossing Powder.  The Stamp Sets used: C1590 Delightful Ditty, D1636 I Do and S1412 (December Stamp of the Month) Cutie Pie.

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

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #88

My first card of the New Year was created using the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #88! I have always been afraid to use too much Liquid Glass, but it worked out well with this card.  I used CTMH Stamp Sets C1600 Happy Birds, D1551 Swirls Around and D1407 Piece of Cake.

The flowers were stamped on Glacier, Canary, Pixie and Thistle Cardstock and the birds were stamped on White Daisy Cardstock and colored in with Shin Han Markers.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #87

For the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #87 I used the December CTMH Stamp of the Month and the A1170 "Doodled Designs" Stamp set from the CTMH Seasonal Expressions Book.  I had some leftover paper and stickers from the retired "Sophia" Paper and I also used a border piece from the current "Brushed" Paper pack.  Cardstock colors used: Hollyhock, Pear, Pixie and Canary.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

I made 50 Thank You cards back in October for my daughter to use for her Baby Shower last month. She called last night and said she needed a few more.  I didn't save one to copy from so I decided since I didn't remember exactly what they looked like, that I would follow the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #86 for the rest of the cards.

This will be my first grandchild and I can't even describe to you how excited I am!
The baby is due on Christmas Eve, and you can tell by the color of the Thank You Card that...

It's A Girl!
