Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #78

For the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #78 I decided to use cards from the Close to My Heart "Pear and Partridge" Picture My Life (PML) Collection. This is a Quick and Easy way to make Christmas Cards.  I used one of the PML cards for the center of the card and added coordinating paper to complete it. It was so quick and easy... I made a second card from the same sketch!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #77

For Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #77 I pulled out the old CTMH "Dotty for You" paper pack.  I will need to make more of these cards since I know several Wine Drinkers that this will be appropriate for!

Now excuse me while I go drink some wine!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #76

I Love the Atlantic Hearts Sketch #76.  It is so different from any sketch they have had in the past.  This card is made with the CTMH Stamp Set B1403 To You and Yours. 


I can't wait to make more Christmas cards with this same sketch!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #75

The Sketch Atlantic Hearts gave us to work with this week was so quick & easy that I made 3 cards! I did these while Skype Scrapping with my friend Lisa.  

So the first one is for the challenge.  I made it with the Close to My Heart Yuletide Carol Paper Pack and the CTMH "Noel Holiday" (C1598) Stamp set:



The next two cards I made with the CTMH Snowhaven Paper Pack and the "Be Jolly" (B1455) Stamp Set:

Three Amigo's Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos October 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 making our project using the Hostess Rewards Stamp sets.  Hostess Rewards Stamp sets can only be purchased by hosting a Gathering and using your earned Hostess Rewards. 

Since I needed to get to work on my Christmas Cards, I used stamp set C1587 (Sing Glory). 
The first card is stamped in Glacier and heat embossed in gold. 



The next card is stamped in Cranberry and Twilight.



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

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #73

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #73 was the perfect sketch to bring out the CTMH Circle Spin Cards.  I used the Yuletide Carol Paper Pack and the Merry Merry Holiday Stamp set (C1591).

Living in Perfect Harmony

I confess that sometimes I go over to the "Dark Side". By that I mean that I use stamps that are not Close to My Heart

My friend Patricia is a Stampin Up Girl and I have been known to browse her catalog now and then.  Although I love working with the Clear Acrylic Stamps that CTMH has, sometimes I like  a rubber stamp enough that I just have to have it! 

Here are a couple cards I have been working on this week.  The first one uses the CTMH Stamp of the Month in combination with an SU stamp in the background.  The second is SU with a CTMH sentiment. 

 
 
And one more.  Not my design, I saw this on Pinterest and made this one similar....

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #72

I used some old and some new Close to My Heart stamps on my cards I made for Atlantic Hearts Sketch #72..
D1618 Build A Cake
C1554 ChantillyCard Workshop
D1407 Piece of Cake
The paper is Confetti Wishes.   The CTMH papers are all double sided and I could not decide which side to use, so I made two cards. The inks used are Honey, Pacifica, Thistle, and Pear.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #71

I started out using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch #71 as a guide for this card, but things somehow started to move around on me.  The sketch was still an inspiration and starting point for my card design.  I used the pretty "Brushed" paper pack by Close to My Heart and the  CTMH Hostess Rewards stamp "Better With A Friend". 
 

You can earn Hostess Rewards to get this and other Hostess Stamp sets by having a CTMH Gathering with product sales of just $150.00!

If you are in the WNY/Buffalo area and would like more information on having a Close to My Heart Home Gathering you can contact me through my website or Facebook page.
