Noel Washi Tape Card


Here is my last 2012 catch up blog post.

I used CTMH's Sparkle & Shine Paper Packet with CTMH's Cocoa, Ruby, Whisper & Slate cardstocks.

To embellish the card, I used the CTMH's Artiste Cricut Cartridge for all the die-cuts on the front of the card and CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge for the baubles on the inside of the card & CTMH's Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape.

I also used CTMH's Trim the Tree, Stitch Wonder & Frosted stamp sets with CTMH Cocoa & Juniper inks.

The brad in the middle of the bow was covered in washi tape and for the bauble I used the reverse cut-out and not the actual bauble cut-out. The CTMH Whisper cardstock behind the bauble reverse cut-out was covered in washi tape. The border stripe behind the bow & the "photo corners" are also washi tape.

This was the final card that I made with my 2012 Stamping Groups.

Merry & Bright All Night Christmas Card


Happy Fool's Day!

Where I live, this card isn't really out of season, we still have quite a bit of snow.

For this simple Christmas Card, I used CTMH's Frosted Paper Packet with CTMH Whisper cardstock and CTMH Colonial White Card Bases.

To embellish the card, I used CTMH's Baker's Twine that came in the Frosted Cardmaking Kit.

I used CTMH's Quick Cards - Bright All Night and Wintry Wishes Hostess stamp sets. I also used the stamp set that came with the Frosted Cardmaking Kit with CTMH Whisper ink.

You're the Best - Masculine Card


Here is another card that my Stamping Groups will be making.

I used CTMH's Timberline Paper Packet with CTMH Bamboo & Chocolate cardstocks.

To embellish the card, I used CTMH Burlap Ribbon, CTMH Slate Striped Twist Ties & CTMH Durables Triangle Studs.

I used CTMHS' You're the Best & Banner Wishes stamp sets with CTMH Chocolate ink.

I used a sponge dauber to ink the CTMH Slate Striped Twist Tie with CTMH Chocolate Ink.

I have 4 samples of this card, 3 of them are Happy Birthday cards and one of them is a Happy Father's Day Card.

Good Times...Thank You


This is the 4 x 4 card that I made for my Stamping Group participants at the end of their commitment period thanking them for their friendship throughout the year.

I really loved how this card came together and this is the card that inspired my February's Open House Valentine's Day Free Make 'n' Take Card.

I used CTMH White Daisy Cardstock.

To embellish the card, I used CTMH Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape, CTMH Ruby Alcohol Based Marker and CTMH Red Glitz Glitter Gel.

I used CTMH's Wintry Wishes, Take Note Artbooking Collection, Perfect-Fit Thanksgiving, Santa Claus and Comments stamp sets with CTMH Black, Ruby, Slate & Whisper inks.

I hand wrote my appreciation to each Stamping Group participant with Stampin' Up's Cherry Cobbler Marker.

I made my own CTMH White Daisy cardstock envelopes with Stampin' Up's Envelope Maker and sealed the envelopes with Sparkle & Shine Washi tape to match my card.
