Merry Little Christmas

Hi Everyone,

Today's card combines two challenges, a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, #FMS213.  and a theme from 4 Crafty Chicks,  a Christmas Song #CC273.  I chose the song,  "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas".

My stripped card stock strip was made using Cranberry Ink and Stamp set "Background Flair" (retired).  It reminded me peppermint, which is a popular Christmas flavor.

I added the red gems on the stamped fern for a little bling.  Everything else pretty simple.  Freshly Made Sketches are all about clean lines and fresh looks.  I really like it when a simple card looks so nice, I am really pleased with how it turned out.

Here are the supplies I used.

CTMH Exclusive Card stock in White Daisy and Cranberry
CTMH Exclusive Ink Stamp Pad in Cranberry and Fern
CTMH Stamp Set #D1678   (exclusive to the White Pines Card Making WOTG)
Thick Twine in Fern
Red Enamel Gems

White Pines Christmas

Hi Everyone,

I used my White Pines Workshop on the Go (WOTG) Card making kit to create my card that was inspired by this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, #Mojo424.



Here are the cards featured in the WOTG.  The stamps in this kit are not available any where else.  This is a D size stamp set valued at $17.95, plus you get enough cards and envelopes to make 15 cards.   The only other purchase required are the inks needed to stamp the images.
White Pines WOTG Card Making Kit

Not much direction needed here, the WOTG gives directions on creating the tree stamped image.  The only variant, was I used Chocolate ink instead of black.

Here are the supplies I used.  All CTMH products was used.

White Pines WOTG Card Making Kit
Stamp Bodacious Banners, #D1607
Stamp Hand Lettered Merry Christmas Holiday, #M1127
Bitty Sparkles (in kit)
Exclusive Card stock in Colonial White, Cranberry & Fern
Exclusive ink stamp pads in Cashmere, Cranberry, Fern, and Chocolate

I love having coordinating ink so I can make smaller patterned pieces for my cards and pages.  The little banner was stamped with Fern ink using the Bodacious Banners stamp set and I just trimmed it to the size I wanted.

If you would like to order these products,  you can can get them at my shopping site Here!  You still have plenty of time before the holidays.  This paper collection will retire on December 31, 2015.

Bronco's Fan Birthday Card

Hi Everyone,

My husband asked if I could make a card for an old friend of his.  I know this friend is a huge Denver Bronco's fan, of course, he lives in Colorado.  So I got on the trusty internet to see what I could do with that theme.

What do you think?


I decided to use a helmet with the Bronco's emblem, which was so easy to make into an SVG.  I used vinyl on the emblem, it was easier to keep everything lined up.

The paper I used was from Cricut,  I don't know which packs each color was from, I have them all torn apart, but they were perfect for Denver's colors.

I used CTMH Stamp "Card Chatter", the inside of the card is stupid "but not your age".  This set has been retired unfortunately.

I liked this card so much, I am working on more football teams.  Check back to see who they are.

Here are the new promotions for this month.

Quick Baptism Card

Hi Everyone,

I have a last minute baptism this weekend.  I have a lot of projects on the burner, so I needed something quick and easy.  I checked the weekly challenges and this weeks sketch at Atlantic Hearts, #AH133, looked like it would work out.


I used an oval instead of the center square and I chose not to add a sentiment.  I cut both ovals and the cross with my Cuttlebug using dies I have on hand.  I embossed each panel to add a little something.  I already cut the paper before embossing, which really is backwards, but it was an after thought.


A little ribbon and bling and it was done.  The picture doesn't do it justice, I used the metallic pink cardstock from Anna Griffin's Metallic Layers Kit.  The ribbon and pearls I had laying around from other projects.

Quick and easy, and I didn't have to pull out my Cricut.

Don't forget to check out this month's promotions.

A Fundamental Birthday Wish

Hi Everyone,

First, I want to salute and say thanks to all our military and veterans out there.  This great nation wouldn't exist if not for the great sacrifices of all the men and women in uniform.  Not to short anyone, I believe all the family members that support our troops deserve a big thank you also.  They too, have endured great hard ship and sacrifice to support all the men and women in uniform.

My card today was inspired by #Mojo423.  I thought I would use some of my fundamental papers from CTMH.

This card shows the versatility of these papers.  These particular patterns have retired, but the new fundamental packs include all the same colors, just different patterns.

A simple design really makes a great card, especially for the men in your life.

Here are the supplies used.
CTMH Fundamental Paper in Pacifica (Adventure Pack) and Flaxen (Whimsy Pack)
CTMH Stamp "Wish" #M1051
CTMH Exclusive ink in Pacifica
Button and embroidery thread

Simply Fundamental Scrapbooking workshop bundle is available November 1, 2015 (9:00 am MST)–November 30, 2015 (11:59 pm MST) while supplies last.

HTV on Tennis Shoes


Hi Everyone,


I just had to share these adorable tennis shoes I made for my granddaughter. 



I designed them in Design Space and just went for it.  I used an inexpensive pair of tennis shoes I purchased from Walmart.

I think they came out adorable.  I will probably do this again, but first I want to find out how they hold up with the little ones.

One quick tip, I used my hand held hole puncher to cut a few dots out of the left over weeded HTV.  

A word to the wise, the rubber will melt on the shoes, be sure to keep the iron off of it.

I recommend a small iron, I have a little travel iron I used.  Just be careful, your hands are in close proximity to the iron.  I wouldn't want you to burn yourself.

I hope you liked my project, give it a try.

Be sure to check out the promotions we have this month at CTMH.

Thinking of You at Christmas


Hi Everyone,

I'm a little late getting to my weekly challenge, it's been a busy week.  Here is how I used this weeks sketch, #Mojo422.  

Today I am featuring a beautiful collection, White Pines, from Close to My Heart.  This is one of my favorite Christmas packs yet.  The colors are so warm and inviting.  

I decided to go with the tans and blues instead of your traditional red and greens.  The sentiment is one I picked up on sale at Hobby Lobby last year after the season.

Here are the products I used.

CTMH White Pines WOTG, also available in Paper Pack
CTMH Exclusive cardstock in Glacier, Cashmere, and Colonial White
CTMH Exclusive In Pad in Glacier
Sparkling gems, Hobby Lobby
Wink of Stella - Clear
Snow Flurry Embossing Folder

I embossed my back layer with the embossing folder and then distressed it with my distressing pad.  I added Wink of Stella to my swirls, which does not show up in picture, but does add a lot to the card.

I stamped my sentiment in Glacier and shaded around the edges.

Here is a better look at the White Pines paper.  I love the scrap book pages that are designed for the Workshop on the Go.  There is also a card kit available.


  


Be sure to stop by and take a look at the new promotions for November.
