Delightful Things ... a "delightfully" versatile stamp set
This "delightful" tree was made using the Delightful Things stamp set from Close To My Heart. To create the branches, a 'corner' image was stamped three times at an angle and then cut out to form the tree. To give added dimension, some of the red bulbs decorating the tree are stamped and some of them are glittery red brads.
Another card using the same stamp set and the same Jingle papers. The flower image was stamped multiple times, each time slight off-set, to form the multiple petals. Notice the 'frame' around the flowers - it is a double line corner stamp which has been stamped on opposing corners of the cardstock. I really like how the lines intersect and form a unique design on the two corners where the images overlap.
Using papers from the Grace paper packet with this stamp sets results in a very different look. This is a My Creations Journal that will be available with the new Spring Idea Book in January. The journal has approximately 70 unlined, blank pages which can be used for notes, daily thoughts, or anything else you would like to keep track of. To decorate, simply create a 5"x7" piece of cardstock and slide it into the front plastic pocket which helps to protect your artwork.
This card using a piece of striped paper from the That's Amore packet is one of my favorites - I really like the all the details in the corner image. A simple and fun card to create.
All of these projects were designed by CTMH for consultants to create at the Regional Celebration held in October in Minneapolis. It was a fun weekend of sharing, learning, and visiting with fellow consultants.
