With Heartfelt Sympathy - Know That I Care Stamp Set


I created this card with the CTMH Know That I Care stamp set.

The little heart is from the I Heart Us Cardmaking stamp set.

And I stamped the images onto the darker side of Linen cardstock with Intense Black ink, then coloured them in with Copic markers.








Happy creating!  :)

Know That I Care



I created this card with the CTMH Know That I Care stamp set.

I sponged and blended the background with Peacock, Lagoon, Glacier, Sweet Leaf, and Willow inks.

And I used a Gold Shimmer Brush to tap the splash of gold flecks over top, before adhering the main image and ribbon. 






Below is a video clip, showing the prettiness of the gold shimmer.  💙




Happy creating!  :)

I Heart Us & Card Captions Card Set


I guess I got busy and forgot to post this set of cards back in January when this CTMH Stamp of the Month, Card Captions, was current.

I used this set for the sentiments, along with bulk papers from the I Heart Us paper packet.

You Are So Loved Layout




This was a fun layout to make using one of the CTMH Stitched Square Frames Thin Cuts dies to cut all the patterned papers I used from the Celebrate Mix-In paper packet.

And that beautiful flower image is from Bunches of Love stamp set.
I coloured the image with my inks and a waterbrush.

My title is from another gorgeous stamp set called Love Blossoms.
Which if I remember correctly, is available only until the end of the month from CTMH.

The tag where I wrote the date on was created with one of the dies in the Fancy Tags Thin Cuts set.
And the Lagoon ribbon is an older retired one from my stash.

I finished the layout off with some Black Dots and Clear Sparkles, as well as a journal pen on the perimeter of the page.
















Happy creating!  :)



Make a Wish - Feels Like Home


For this card, I used papers from CTMH Feels Like Home.

The main floral paper is just black, white and grey images, so I coloured the flowers on the patterned paper with blue and green markers, to give it some more depth and interest, although it is really pretty on its own.
I just wanted to add a pop of colour.

For the wreath, I used the Feels Like Home Scrapbooking stamp set, and the sentiment is from a retired M-size stamp called Wish.

Lastly, I added a white ribbon bow and some clear sparkles.





This card feels a little like Spring to me.



Happy creating!  :)

Inspire Card Set


I've been going through my many years of accumulated stash of papercrafting items, selling off as much as I can of the things I won't use.

In doing that, I have come across quite a few things that has made me want to play...

These papers are one of the items.  They are from an 8x8 paper pad from October Afternoon called Report Card.  They have an antique-y, old school feel to them.  So pretty in person.

I paired the papers up with a retired CTMH stamp set called Inspire, to create this set of cards.












I also used the new CTMH I Heart Us Cardmaking stamp set on the card above and below.








You should go through your stash and see what inspires you to create!


Happy creating!  :)





Dandelion Wishes Cards


I used the CTMH Dandelion Wishes stamp set to make both of these birthday cards, along with Ballerina and Charcoal cardstock.

The "Make a Wish" sentiment is from the retired Wish, an M-sized stamp.

After I embossed the images with white embossing powder, I coloured the embossed dandelions with a Tender Pink marker.

( I was inspired by a SU card made by Megumi Holland.) 💕



I also used the Playful Scallops embossing folder for the card above.






For my shaker, I used the Stitched Circles Thin Cuts to create a little smaller shaker, as the Shaker Window Thin Cuts dies were a little too big for the size I needed for this card.



Happy creating!  :)
