Silver and Gold


Was inspired by the Silver and Gold Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week.  Used the Dreamin' Big-Cardmaking Thin Cuts bundle to create the butterflies and dragonfly which are embossed with gold and silver embossing powder.  The background of the card is a piece of gold stripe from the All About the Gold Fundamentals packet.  There is a bit of a glare on it because it is actually a clear vinyl with the stripes, it adds such a nice texture and dimension.  The design of the card is based off Pattern #20 in Make It From Your Heart, Volume 1.  And the shaped label for the sentiment was cut using the Artistry Cricut cartridge.  To add even more sparkle and shine, some Metallic Foil tape was used and also some Glitter Paper.

Adore You (January SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  During the month of January, you can get the romantic Adore You stamp set which features some nice Valentine greetings along with hearts and flowers.           

If you have come here from Gina's Little Corner of StampinHeaven, you are on the right path!  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  

With the new year, Close To My Heart has released their Seasonal Expressions catalog with great new papers, stamps, and other accessories for paper crafting.  The new Some Kinda Wonderful paper packet includes some fun, bright colored patterned papers.  When I saw the paper with decorated circles, I knew it would be perfect for a simple card.  Some of the circles have a bit of pattern to them, and then I used images from the Adore You stamp with some silver and white embossing powder to add the heart and "thank you" to the plain circles.  With a patterned Raspberry paper from the same package used as a background for the card, a piece of White Twine adds a finishing touch.          

Place a $50 minimum order this month (January 2017) and you are eligible to purchase the Adore You stamp set for only $5. It is also available for $17.95 without a qualifying purchase.  





Now "Hop" on over to the CTMH Craftings blog to see her work.  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas.
