Springtime Card Workshop (June)

Finally made it down to my stamp room and created some cards for this month's workshop. The first card was copied from one shared by Susan Sprowls Smith. The With Love stamp set was used with Citrus Leaf and Black inks, and the cute little sentiment is from the new Thank You stamp set. I just love the fun, vibrant look of this card - and it is really easy to make. The centers of the flowers are highlighted using some Liquid Glass and Prisma Glitter.

To create the unique watercoloring effect of the rosebuds for this card, the 'Puddle Pad' technique was used with the Thoughts of You stamp set. This technique is one of many 'Tips & Techniques' detailed in the new Wishes card-making book available from Close To My Heart. The template for this card is titled 'Simple Expressions' and is also available in the Wishes book. The patterned paper is from the Unforgettable paper packet. And a special thanks to Michelle Loncar for the inspiration for this card.

The third card uses the adorable Treetops stamp set which has an assortment of whimsical trees that can be used in many different ways. The striped paper is available in the Tinkerin' paper packet.

Let me know if you would like to attend the workshop - it is scheduled for Friday, June 19 at 7:00 and Saturday, June 20 at both 9:00 in the morning and 1:00 in the afternoon. For more information, visit MyCTMH website.
