Home For The Holidays - October Stamp of the Month

 Home For The Holidays will make great holiday cards, tags and gifts.  I just love the Polar Bear so I used him as the focal image for my card.  The paper is the Snowhaven Paper Pack.  It is not traditional holiday paper, but it is very bright and cheerful.  The colors will be great for scrapbook layouts for snow photos.  However, after last winter, I'm hoping I don't have too many new snow photos this year! 

 I used the tiny black sparkles for his eyes and some red glitter tape for embellishment.

Artfully Sent Snowhaven Card

Here is my first card made using the new CTMH Exclusive Cricut Cartridge Artfully Sent. It uses 2 patterns of the Snowhaven Pattern Paper.

The top layer was cut using the "Scene" (shift) function on page 49 of the booklet.  It was actually meant for the inside of a swing card, but it works great as a layered card front too.  The open area of snowflakes is backed with Silver Glitter paper.  The wording "Let It Snow" was backed with White Daisy Cardstock and then I used Glacier ink and the blending pen for an "ombre" effect. The large snowflake was cut at 3 1/4" in White Daisy Cardstock using the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  It was stamped using D1480 Snowflakes stamp set using Glacier Ink.  Then, I cut the Snowflake again in Silver Glitter paper at 3 1/2" and layered the stamped snowflake on top.  The snowflake was embellished using 3 sizes of Clear Sparkles.

The Snowhaven paper and all the other supplies are available to order on my website

Joyful Stars September Blog Hop

Welcome to our Blog Hop.  I can't believe that it is already September!  If you are coming from Nickie's Blog then you are on the right track.  Today I have a card that uses my new favorite paper - Chalk It Up (X7184B).  It is great for back to school photos, but I love the trendy colors and images for everyday cards too.  The card is a twist on one we made at Convention this year.
It is a faux swing card.  If you own the Artiste Cartridge, you know that you can find 9 different swing cards on page 52 of the booklet.  However, if you don't yet own Artiste, making a swing card usually involves using an Exacto knife to make the cutout.  It is not really difficult, but the faux swing card does not require any cutting on the base card.   The card is a regular 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" size card but the front is folded in half toward the fold (just like a real swing card, except there is no shape cut out).

Then you simply attach a shape on top of the fold.  I used a shape from Artiste - it is Accent 4 on page 36 of the booklet.  The shape is stamped with B1467 You Mean the World to Me and outlined using the Journaling Pen.  The inside of the card is lined with Flaxen Cardstock for contrast.

Here is the one we made at Convention using the Scaredy Cat paper pack:
