Footloose Gift Card Holder

Have a little ones birthday coming up and I thought this would be cute as a gift card holder.

Using Close to my heart's FOOTLOOSE paper and UNDER THE SEA stamp set.

Outside says "Best fishes for you" and the inside says "on your birthday!"

Now to point out a easy tip. This is actually a TAG cut with the CTMH ART Philosophy cricut cartridge at 7 1/2 inches. Then I score it and folded it into this Gift Card Holder. The scallop is also cut by the CTMH cricut cartridge.

Then I used our new twine and a wooden button.
I used my waterbrush and ink pad to color in the fish. All from Close to my heart! Thanks for looking!

Pemberly Clear card

I love the clear cards that Close to my heart has to offer! So I pulled them out to work on one using the Pemberly papers and Card Word Puzzle stamp set.

I stamped the flower on one of the Background papers from Pemberly and just shaded in some creme brulee ink to highlight. I like how it came together!!

Thanks for looking!!

Thank You card and H2H challenge

As you may see from previous posts I am using up my Sonoma Paper Pack from Close to my heart. Plus those awesome Butterflies CTMH has as well. H2H ( look on right side of my blog ) is having a challenge this week. And here is my card. I made an Easel card and pulled out the VINTAGE TYPE stamp set that I have yet to use but will from now on!! I used the tag out of that stamp set as the accent piece and used the Say it in Style stamp set to stamp Thank you. Added some ribbon, Butterflies, pearls and a flower cut out from the CTMH cricut cartridge and I have a cute Thank you card. Oh! And even the card itself is cut out by the CTMH cricut cartridge. LOVE IT!! I find myself using it everytime I scrap now.

Thanks for stopping by!

2012 Sonoma Easel Calendar

Happy New Year everyone!

I made a few personalized calendars for 2012. Here is one I made my mom her name is "Cleta" using the Close to my heart Sonoma papers and cardstock. I used the Art Philosopy cricut cartridge to cut out the calendar holder shape, scallop and the flowers. Finishing touches from Close to my heart are the butterflies, pearls, and wooden button.

My mom loved it!
