If you have come here from Janelle's Blog, you are on the right track!!!
One of the best things that I got in my new consultant kit was the little package of clear cards. They are so much fun to work with! I decided that I had to use them for a special occasion - my first CTMH blog hop. For the first card, I ran the front of the card through my Cuttlebug using the dotted embossing folder. I used some paper from the Cherry-O collection and some Tulip and Colonial White colored embelishments and cardstocks. The image was stamped using Chocolate ink and I colored him with brown chalk (Chocolate ink for the second card) and I also used a tiny bit of Sunlower, Pansy Purple and Tulip inks. I used the sponge dauber to distress the edges of the stamped image in Chocolate ink. I love how the clear cards give you the opportunity to see both sides of the beautiful patterned paper that CTMH has to offer. The second card was made using Chocolate to stamp again, and some of the cute papers from the Splendor paper pack. I used a sentiment from the Over the Rainbow stamp set for this one because "Nothing but blue skies" seemed to be the perfect little sentiment for this little guy flying his kite.
Everything that you see here (except for the paper flowers - they are by Flora-Doodle) is available for purchase through My Close To My Heart website! If I can recommend one product from this post it would be the clear cards. I love them and they are a great value. I can't wait to make Christmas cards with them! I can't live without the little "Happy Forever" hedgehog either. . . but remember that he is a Stamp of the Month and that means that he is only available until the end of July! The good news is, if you purchase other products, you can get him for a discount or even for free. Stop over to my store to check it out.
Hop along then and check out what the other Close To My Heart Consultants have to offer! Your next stop is to Nicole . . . and thank you for stopping by!
