Love Blossoms Fun

On Friday, I did a FB live opening up the Love Blossoms kit as I had just got it in.  You can see the live here. Please “love” and share it! When I get back from the cruise, if we have 25 shares, I’m giving away the mini ink pads. If we have 50 share, I’m giving away the mini ink pads and the Swiss Dot embossing folder!

Here here is what the stamps and card look like.

I made two cards on the fly just so I had a chance to play with the set before I left.

This card was fun and easy. The Swiss Dot embossing folder really make this card look classy. Did you see my solution for those crazy dove tails in the live? Start the middle cut with your cutter!

Use your clear shimmer brush to watercolor in the leaves and highlight the flowers and buds. Use the gold shimmer brush with the Canary ink pad to color in the middle of the flowers.

Stamp the envelopes. These flowers just beg to be seen and showing them off on the envelope will make everyone’s day bright as the letter goes through the mail! check out this live:

Enjoy and pick up the full kit for $55.95! Email me your order and you’ll get $10 through my Cruise Special. Check that out here!  

Thank for stopping by and enjoy the Love Blossoms set. It’s really fun to play with!

Love Blossoms Collection

This collection is amazing and I can’t wait for mine to arrive. Watercolor is one of my favorite ways to color and express myself . This stamp set is designed to make it look like you water-colored these beautiful flowers.

The sentiments are wonderful for either cards or scrapbooking. Here are the one set of the card samples the workshop is designed to create. Note that they embossed both sides of the card with the dots on the folder. You are able to use this folder multiple ways to get different impressions.

Here is the full workshop, including the Swiss Dot embossing folder. The bundle is 20% off – $55.95 USD vs $70+USD!! It’s a great deal. I love these tiny little ink pads included so you don’t have to have stamp pads!

Here is the kit without the folder where you can still save 20% – $47.95 USD vs $60.72!

Look at how beautiful these flowers look! It truly looks as if they are water-colored and all you had do was stamp.

In case you really fall in love with the cards, you can buy more of the basic kit, without the stamps, ink pads, and the folder, so you can make more.

Here’s the last design. Look at how beautiful the cards are with the Swiss Dots folder and just stamping the flowers. So simple yet so elegant!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet to check out this amazing Love Blossom Collection.

What a day, April 1!!

What a day, April 1!!

What a day, April 1!  Seriously.  Happy Easter, everyone. He has risen!  It’s also April’s Fool Day.  And if that’s not enough to celebrate on one day,  Jeff and I celebrate 18 years of marriage today.  This also coincides with 18 years with CTMH.  Poor Jeff has never know life without CTMH since we were married.  This is the perfect to celebrate many important things: Jesus, fun, my best friend, family, CTMH which provides an outlet for my passion to create and all the marvelous friends which come from this love.  Very rarely will this occur on the same day.

The 1st of April also means changes in CTMH’s specials.  Let’s take a look!

Super Boy is On Sale!

Super Boy is On Sale in March!

This card, Super Boy,  is from the SE1 2018 swap.  Laurie made this swing card and it’s fun.  When you open the card, the center image turn and you have the sentiment and message on the other side!  Coloring makes it easy to personalize this card or image for whoever you are planning to bless with it.   The image is large enough to use as embellishments on a scrapbooking page.  I wish we’d had these sets last year when the school theme was “Super Hero’s”.

The Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge has several swing cards available to use, saving yourself some cutting time.   Anything that makes creating simpler and easier is wonderful.

Happy Wishes on Valentine’s Day

Happy Wishes on Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day.  If you are not spending it with your favorite loved one, I hope you are planning to spend time with friends or having  special day to celebrate you!  Created with the Bashful Glitter Paper (on sale), this simple card sends a sweet message to a new couple for happy wishes on their special day.

Pink is not really my color.  Since Pretty in Pink in the special this month, I’m doing some creating with pink.  The pink glitter paper along with the silver paper creates a very elegant look.

With the silver paper, emboss it with the rose embossing folder.  It was really bright so I took a piece of vellum and embossed it so it matched the silver paper.  This softened up the look immensely and I was really pleased with the look.

The sentiment is from one of the Circut Artfully Sent stamp sets.  I love the this sentiment stamp set.  Matting the sentiment piece on some silver gave the card just enough of the shiny bling.  Add the Bashful Pearls (also on sale!) to finish the card off.

Pick up the Bashful Glitter Paper and Bashful Pearls on sale this month:
