Card Swap CTMH Retired Winter Blossoms

I love poinsettas!! I can't seem to part with ANY of my stamps that I purchase. I found Winter Blossoms in my CTMH collection and random stamped it on 12 x 12 White Daisy CS. Using this technique, you are able to make muliple cards with the stamped pattern. I also ran it through a Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

I love this time of the year.

Enjoy! :-)

CTMH Jingle papers, Art Philosophy Cartridge, La La Land Stamp

I saw this La La Land "Sweet Dreams" Marci, and had the perfect layout in mind, so I just had to purchase it!! These stamps are soooooo cute. I used the CTMH Jingle paperpack. The title and the frame around Marci were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.

CTMH Totally Chic / Stampin Up Cupcake Punch

I have seen samples similar to this card, so I definitely CASED it, however I am unsure who the original creater is. You are definitely a geneous whomever you are, cuz this is such a clever use and demonstration of the versatility of the Build a Cupcake Punch. The "Totally Chic" phrase is from the retired "Totally Chic" CTMH stamp set. I love my CTMH!!!!!!!

CTMH/D.O.T.S. Card with Sophia Paper

I just love these older "woodie" stamps that I just can't seem to part with. My project day card swap "challenge" was to use fun flock or flower soft. I used fun flock for the fun feel of the fuzzy jammies. I layered/paper pieced the sections of the stamp.. So FUN!!!!

S/U Petal Cone Die

The Stampin Up Petal Cone Die is so versatile. I love versatility. This is ice cream cone card is what I envisioned when I saw the die. I must have been craving ice cream!! :-)
The cone on the right is actually what can be pulled out of the cone. The complete cone on the left is the card inside the cone altogether!!!

The cherry on top was made with the new Stampin Up Sizzix Button Embosslit.

The "squishy" paper was made with a strip of CS that was sprayed with water then "squished" up, allowed to dry, then adhered with monoglue.... the perfect whipped cream.

The Ice Cream was run through the Cuttlebug Swirled EF, then Stickled on the swirls. The Cone was embossed with the Scor-Pal.

CTMH "Wings" Workshop Kit Layout 3

The new CTMH Spray Pen is a fun new cool little tool. It takes a lil getting used to, but the end results are georgeous. A plain blah area on a layout or paper can easily turn into oooohhh's and aaaahhhh's with just a lil spray.

CTMH "Wings" Card cased/card swap

I love the new "Wings" papers from Close To My Heart. The 2011 Spring/Summer catalog is actually filled with brand new gorgeous papers and awesome stamps!!

This card is actually my take from the 'Buds TC kit and is what I am using for my January Card Swap. The colors for this kit are Black, Vineyard Berry, Twilight, Sweet Leaf. I used the CTMH "Dreams Come True" stamp set in the new catalog. I also had fun playing with the new Spray Pen. :-)
