Love the Little Moments

Love the Little Moments

Here’s a card with the Stamp of the Month S1705 Live Love Laugh.  This one is done by a guest artist Jennifer P from my swap group.  This shows how you can color the card and have it look great for those who are not color-ers.   “Love” can be such a useful word when pair with different sentiments.  This sentiment is from the Cricut Cartridge Flower Market Collection and one of my favorite stamp sets.

Because the stamp set words are so large, it takes up most of the space on the card.  Simple is best.   The sentiments from Flower Market has these simple sayings that are done with a combination of 2 fonts, which I really like.  I don’t know if you can really see it for the picture from Flower Market. It’s the top set in the upper left corner.

See how perfect the sentiment goes with “love”.  It’s great to mix and match different stamp sets you have.

Live Well

Live Well

Here’s one of the cards for the Stamp of the Month S1705 Live Love Laugh.  I made some where the recipient can color and some where I did the coloring.  The big letters are fun and it’s nice to be able to color in just the flowers and not the letter.

The colors used are Lemon and Tangerine.  I like the brightness, the happy feeling they give which matches “Live”.

The gems are from the Sugar Rush Gems which are now retired.  Super sad to see those go as they were one of my favorites.

Together is the best

Together is the best.

A different take on yesterday’s card is to add some transparency to the card.  Using transparency on your cards adds a little fun to your card.  Here the transparency is under the sentiment, “Together is the best place to be.”  Cut the front of the off at the 1/3 mark and adhere the transparency to the top of this.  Add your Some Kinda of Wonderful paper on top of that with the shimmer trim.

Then add the paper to the bottom of the transparency and shimmer trim on top of this.  I really like using black as a neutral color to this because it makes the bright colors pop.  You want to leave the strip of transparency through the middle of the card.  You will stamp on the inside of the card so the sentiment “Love This” shows through it.  Together, the transparency and stamp underneath, create a nice effect of being a window.  Place the circles on top of the transparency on the left side.

Add some of the black and white embellishments to the sentiment panel for some extra bling.

This card was made by a guest artist April Smith who helps me out on occasion with getting things done around here.  Sometimes we are just so busy, which is a great thing.   S1704 Flock Together is the Stamp of the Month for April.  Celebrate your family with this set.

You can get this for $17.95 or $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase.  A $50.00 purchase (before shipping, handling, tax) will also get you an entry into The Great Cricut Giveaway.  You can check that out here.

This fun paper is Some Kinda of Wonderful.  Colors to get us excited about heading into Summer.  Now, this is not my favorite paper in the Season Expressions 1.   I did find myself liking more and more as I worked with it for some scrapbook layouts and more.  I really like the Black and White Embellishments and will be stocking up on those because they will be useful long back the Some Kinda of Wonderful paper!!  Use your Cricut to cut your circle bases.

Adding some sunshine to your day

I love the song “You are my sunshine” and S1503 Sunshine Birdies has this saying in it.  I created this card from the MM435 Sketch:

Here’s the sketch:

Mojo435

I used the Penelope Papers for this card.  Love the bright spring colors of the paper.

mm435 MarSOM Card 3b wm

I used ink pads and a water color brush to do the coloring of the sun and other images.  I then went over it with a clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer to the sun.  I had some other scraps and I made the same card, different paper:

Read this for more thoughts to consider. 

I have been with CTMH for 15+ years now. I love to scrapbook, make cards, and paper craft. CTMH has been with me for 3 different moves actually helping my transitions to communities easier. I’ve earned 3 incentive trips (a paid vacation for 2!!) when I’ve been able to work the business (20+hours a week). I’ve been able to support my addiction to paper when I’ve been on my own. The biggest blessings are the friendships and people I’ve come to know both as fellow consultants and as customers.
