A Thing Well Done!

This is one of my favorite cards I made with the Wanderful My Reflections BT paper.  I used a Hostess only stamp set; A Thing Well Done. (thanks Sara!).  Combine this Flaxen print BT with Kraft cs for a masculine style card.

Wanderful Happy Bday!

Sometimes the simple card is the best! Lovely Birthday B1462 is great, just stamp in Archival Black and color in with CTMH Alcohol-based markers and cut them out. Add a few embellishments...WaLa!

Make A Wish!

The Doodles Designs A1170 is the perfect companion stamp to many stamps in the CTMH Idea Books! Add Paper Fundamentals paper for a perfect finishing touch!

Mix 'n Match

There are so many ways to say Hello! I added the bike from the bike pop up, to the cover of my Hello pop up!
All CTMH products, current and retried

Easy, fun Pop Ups!

Have you used made many of the pop up cards with your CTMH Artfully Sent Cartridge? (Ooops! You still don't have the cartridge?! Don't be left out, order yours now!)
With just a few cuts, (DT Hint: I always cut 2 of the pop-up shape and adhere them as one) and adding some CTMH Glitter paper to the back. Another easy hint:  cut an extra; smaller shape of your pop up to use on the cover of your card...WaLa!

Spin card!

Gotta love the CTMH Spinner card!! "Just add paper"
The center circle spins to show two sides!!

I am Back!

As many of you know we have been consumed with some M-I-L health issues. As a result of that I have fallen behind in my posting of ideas and club samples, (here, FB & Pinterest) I will try to catch up over the next few days.
Sorry anyone expecting our 2014 Holiday card & letter, I have given up on the mailing part LOL! I just put them away until next year. On the bright side, next year we just need to add another letter and off they can go.
And so life goes...
*Notice my new favorite stamp set? Brushstrokes C1608
The top card is made with the CTMH Cricut Artiste Collection; stamps and cuts!
