Friend Card

Hi everyone!

Wow, three posts in row--I think that's a record for me lately :)  I actually made this cards over a month ago for a publication call.  It did not get picked up, so here it is!

  • Close to My Heart 
    • Friend Stamp (Hostess Only purchase)
    • Black Tulle Ribbon
    • Black Ink
  • DCWV paper
  • Recollections Foam Adhesive
  • Creative Charms Jewels
The layers are a matching cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  Then I placed pop dots between the layers and under for some dimension. This was another easy card to put together!

You can't tell from the picture, but the patterned paper is shiny.  I just can't get a good picture after work around here lately :)

Have a fabulous day!!

You Are My Happy National Stamping Month Promotion

Hi everyone!  Today I have a super quick, easy and cute card to show you.  I made it with 2 of the 3 stamps sets that are a special deal for National Stamping Month with Close to My Heart.   More on that after my card :)

I really decided to go simple on this one.  I just stamped the sun in yellow and then the sentiment in brown.   Add some fun Lemon Tart Trendy Twine with a bow in the middle and there you go!  Sometimes, I just like simple :)

So, here's the deal:  If you spend $50 in September with Close to My Heart, you can get the You Are My Happy 3-set special for just $10!  Here are the stamps sets:

The Icons and Sentiments come together in one folder and the Upper and Lower Alpha are in another.  A few of the icons can be cut out with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (one of my very favorites!).

If you are spending $50, that also qualifies you for the September Stamp of the Month too :)

Please let me know if I can help you with an order.  I also have an Shop Now link on the right, but you can email too.

Have a wonderful day!

Back to School with Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine

Hi everyone!  There are two new Trendy Twine colors releasing today--Cherry Lemonade and Lemon Peppermint.  

We are highlighting Cherry Lemonade this month with a Back to School theme!  

I made this card with the new Cricut Close to My Heart Artbooking cartridge.  The mat with the numbers is shown in the book as a photo mat.  And the apple is an extra page element.  It cuts out in one color, but I cut another in green and just cut the leaf and stem on to add some more color to the apple.  I all decided to give it some dimension and pop dotted two together. The Cherry Lemonade twine was perfect to tie it all together! 

Be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and see the other design team projects.  And please join in our challenge this month:
