Mad About You Card

This card took a long time to create because I couldn't quite figure out how to layout the "Mad About You" image. However, I'm very happy with the finished product!
The Sonoma colors are so beautiful together! Of course, I sanded the B&T paper.
I used hemp to tie the whole piece together on each side of the card.
I placed pop tabs only at the top of the "Mad About You" image. It adds nice dimension to the finished look.

CTMH Products Used:
Sonoma B&T
Colonial White CS
Olive and Cocoa Ink
Chocolate and Pearl opaques
Chocolate Ink to distress edges

Believe Christmas Card

Wow!  Time has flown!  I can't believe that it is already Christmas!  I love stamping for the winter holidays.  Cards, tags, scrapbook layouts, treat holders.... so much to create!

Today, I am going to show you a Christmas card that I made for my friends.  The "Believe" B&T paper pack from Close to My Heart is fantastic!  It's whimsical and bright - perfect for card making!

I used sandpaper to roughen up the Sweet Leaf cardstock.  It definitely makes the black cardstock pop!  I also used tabs to to raise up the black cardstock/Santa Claus layer.  Extra dimension! :)

CTMH Products used:

Believe Level 2 Paper Pack
Sweet Leaf, White Daisy, and Black Cardstock
Black and Cranberry ink (eek... didn't have Holiday Red)
I Believe Stamp Set
Say it in Style Stamp Set

OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop

Hello!  Welcome to my spot on the tour!

May everyone have a lovely Memorial Day Weekend!  Hopefully you can take some time to remember those that are currently serving in the military, and our soldiers who passed away while protecting our country.

Today, I'm going to share with you a card that could be sent to a child.  Even though it doesn't say "Missing You" on the front, it could certainly be used as such.  I love making cards that are versatile!

The inside part of the card can be pulled up by the ribbon.  That is where the message can be written for the child.  It was made with Close to My Heart's Splendor paper packet and "It's a Zoo" stamp set.

Happy Hopping!
