Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 127

I have created another Christmas Card for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog! This time I took out some retired Close to My Heart paper (Sparkle & Shine) and stamp set C1506 Flakey Friends and combined it with the new stamp set C1506 Festive Trees.  All the stamping is done in Ruby ink.

Little Monsters

I don't usually do Halloween Cards but this CTMH "Little Monsters" stamp set is so adorable I just had to have it.  And now that I have my Shin Han Markers I do not mind coloring anymore.  The Haunted House is cut from the CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge.

Joining in the fun at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog is a great way to get your Christmas Cards made! Each week there is a different sketch for you to base your cards on.  This week there is a circle in the sketch which works perfect for a Christmas wreath.

I used the stamp set from the Close to My Heart WOTG White Pines Christmas Card Kit, the new ink pad "Fern" and the new White Pines Paper which is available for purchase in the new CTMH Annual Inspirations Book!

I added a strip of gold Shimmer Trim, a bow with the Fern Twine and stamped the Merry Christmas in Cranberry.  The Sketch can be seen below:

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #124

Another Christmas Card done thanks to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog!  This was a great Sketch to make a card for any occasion, but since I need Christmas cards, that is what I chose to make.

 I used Close to My Heart White Pines Paper, Glacier & White Daisy Cardstock, Glacier ink, Stamp Set B1483 Seasons Greetings and Stamp set C1564 Stitch Wonder (Retired).  I also turned the sketch sideways.

3 Amigo's September Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos September 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 featuring new products from the Close to My Heart 2015-2016 Annual Inspirations Book.  For my card I used a New Hostess Rewards Stamp Set (C1624) called Birthday Wish.  

I also used Gypsy cardstock and ink, Shin Han Markers to color in the candles, and a piece of Thistle Twine for the bow. Now hop on over to Susan's Blog and Lisa's Blog to see what they have created this month!
