Sentiment-ally Yours!

Hi Stamping friends-
This week at Heart 2 Heart they are asking for you to make a project that has a sentiment stamped on it, but do not use any other stamping on the card.  I thought, oh this will be easy but I found it hard to not want to stamp an additional image on the card. 

I pulled out the new Cricut and the CTMH cartridge to help me with this one.

My Sentiment is from D1492 Christmas Love. I cut off the star image that was connected to the words.  I used the CTMH AP Cricut cartridge to cut out the plaque that the sentiment is on and the three different sized trees.  The trees are in two layers, the bottom solid layer is using Sky Blue and the top cut-out layer is using Sweet Leaf Green.   The sparkles on the trees are made with Z1313 Stardust glitz glitter gel. I used the Believe paper pack for the background papers.  I added the wide Grosgrain ribbon in white and a cute little bow too.   I also added Z1263 Bitty Sparkles to dot the "i's" in the sentiment.

Be sure to check out what other have done with this challenge at their blog.  Have a great week!

Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Cardstock Only!

This week at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog the challenge is....
We want to see what you can do with cardstock only - no patterned paper! In addition, we want you to use at least 3 different colors of cardstock! Oh yeah, time to put your thinking caps on! Click here to see what the DT came up with:

For my card I used Crystal Blue, Pacifica, and Goldrush cardstock.  I also used Colonial White cardstock to stamp my images and then cut them out.  It was hard to get a good picture to show the true colors...

The stamp sets I used are C1456 Heartfelt Treasures for the flowers, D1361 Thank You for the sentiment, C1450 Electic Edges for the border trim, and D1335 Intrinsic Backgrounds for the small leaves and the diamond weave images.  I added pearls to the centers of all the flowers.  The large flower is cut out and layered using 3-D foam tape.

I hope you enjoy this card, I had a great time making it.
Now lets see what you have created!

Die Cuts Challenge

This week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges Blog in honor of CTMH's new Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge the challenge is Die Cuts.  If you aren't lucky enough to have the new Cricut Cartridge made exclusively for CTMH any Die Cut you have will do the trick.  Or if you got to have it (and you will) you can order it here - at my website. 

I was able to make this card with the new AP cartridge thanks to my friend Laura that let me borrow hers.  She is so nice!

  I used the Shaped card at 4" square, then I cut out the cute tag with the cut out hearts.  I also cut out the ticket and then stamped on it with the wonderful new Blue Ribbon C1464 stamp set.  I also cut out the small bracket too.  The corregated star is from the new Milepost Shapes Z1464, I inked it in Vineyard Berry ink.  The paper pack is the new Typeset X7139B.  I wanted a card to match my previously posted backpack box.
