Atlantic Hearts Sketch #100

This is the 100th Sketch Challenge at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog! I try to do as many of the challenges as I can.  It is a great way to build up my card collection and the sketches are a tremendous help for inspiration.  

I used the new "Blossom" paper from Close to My Heart, which will be available to purchase starting April 1st.  I also used Petite Perks Stamp Set W2028 "Delicate Wings" and D1510 "For My Friend" for the sentiment.I embossed the Glacier cardstock with the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder, added a few sequins and attached a piece of Glacier extra thick twine with my mini stapler (Z2027).


Be sure to visit the Atlantic Hearts Blog and all the design team members blogs. If you leave a comment on their design for Sketch 100 you will be entered for a chance to win some Blog Candy!

3 Amigo's CTMH Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos March 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 using the March Stamp of the Month for our projects.  I did a really quick and simple card because as you are reading this I am on vacation! The temperatures where I live have gone below ZERO several nights in a row and are not expected to get above freezing for quite some time.  I am so happy to be going to a warmer climate with Beaches and Palm Trees!  

So getting back to the March Stamp of the Month, it is called "Choose Happy" I stamped a 5 X 5 card and colored in the stamps with my Shin Han Markers.


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

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #95

I pulled out some old Close to My Heart supplies for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #95.  Silhouette is one of my all time favorite CTMH paper packs and it seemed right for this challenge.  I also used retired stamp sets B1420 "Hello Tweety" and D1187 "For Every Occasion". The ribbon is also a retired CTMH product.


I will miss doing these Challenges for the next 2 weeks while I am on Vacation, but I will be back!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #94

Photobucket
For the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge this week I used the Close to My Heart stamp set number D1636 "I Do" and the Heart Embossing Folder.  I stamped the picture and sentiment first then ran it through my Cuttlebug to emboss the card.  When I put it together it looked like it was still missing something, so I added Glitter Gel to each of the embossed hearts, which really made the hearts stand out!


Be sure to visit Atlantic Hearts to see more creations from this sketch and possibly add your own card as well!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #93

This is my take on the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #93.  I used Stamp Set D1608 Better With A Friend, which is a Hostess Rewards Stamp.  I also used the Brushed Paper Pack and colored in the stamp with my Shin Han Markers.


If you look close you can see the glitter gel on her jewelry, shoes and shirt.

Home is where the Heart is...

This week on the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog the challenge is  "Home is Where the Heart Is". For this challenge I made a card for a new home owner.  I used retired CTMH stamp set C1384 "Neighborhood" and Lollydoodle paper.    The first picture is of the card opened up and the second picture shows how it folds up to fit in an envelope.

3 Amigo's CTMH Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos February 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 creating a Mix and Match project.  CTMH makes it easy to create scrapbook pages and cards by making matching paper packs and coordinating embellishments.  But that doesn't mean you can't mix paper packs and embellishments in your projects.  

For this page layout I used paper from the Heartstrings and Skylark Packs, Teal Shimmer Trim, Chalk it Up Assortment and Best Day Ever Assortment.
