Day 164: Zoe Merry Christmas Card

One of the things I love most about the Zoe papers is how versatile the colors are.
For this holiday card I embossed a panel of Glacier Cardstock. I cut some holly berries from some White Daisy cardstock and the Zoe Green Dot B&T using the new Artistry cartridge. I colored the berry base with a green Shin Han marker, and the berries with a red marker. Then I layered the holly together and added some red glitter gel. 
A few grey sequins topped with Bitty Sparkles, plus a hand dotted border were the finishing touches on this fast and jolly holiday card! I'm linking up to the Merry Monday Pastels challenge.
Don't forget - CTMH is offering a Welcome Back special this month only, with a special kit just for past consultants who want to come back. There's a place for you here!

Day 163: Zoe Thanks Card

One thing I love about the Zoe paper packet is how pretty but versatile all the coordinating patterns can be.
When I made this card, I used the tiny green dot as a background. I stitched all around the edges by hand with the stitching ruler. I added a bunch of banners using the different B&T patterns, which were all adorable and not scaled so large that small pieces wouldn't work. Then I hand-stitched across the top of the banners too. 
I added a couple of the new butterfly shapes from the newly released Artistry cartridge, and stitched over the bodies. I inked the sentiment banner on the edges with black before stamping my sentiment from the August SOTM in Glacier and filling the sentiment with glitter gel pen. 

I'm linking this card up to the Addicted to CAS Banners challenge. There's still ten days to play along - you can never have too many banners!

Day 162: Zoe Blog Hop

Welcome to the Zoe Blog Hop. We are celebrating the release of the adorable new Zoe paper packet! You may be arriving here from CINDY'S BLOG. Let's hop!
  I used this card as my inspiration. I love the colors of the Zoe paper packet, especially mixed with the Slate gray. One of the first cuts I made with my new Artistry cartridge was this heart background. I backed the heart spaces with bits of the Zoe B&T papers. then I drew in the smiley faces with a journaling pen. I stamped a sentiment from the August SOTM, Framed, in the bottom right corner of the card.

Day 161: August SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the August SOTM Blog Hop! This month we have over 50 talented CTMH consultants sharing their creations using the August Stamp of the Month. Framed is a versatile set of 12 stamps that includes three frames with coordinating and adorably fonted sentiments for all occasions! You may be arriving here from JEAN'S BLOG.  Let's hop!
I usually use the SOTM images in lots of cards, but this month I was making a demo board, so I wanted to make a 12 x 12 layout. I loved this Sketchy Saturday sketch from Paper Issues, and it was perfect for the pictures I had in mind.  On Father's Day I took all the boys out for Blueberry pancakes, letting my sweet hubby sleep in restful silence. I cut the big Slate CS shape, and the title using the newly released CTMH Artistry Cartridge. You'll see a lot of Artistry from me this month - it's like Art Philosophy part 2, full of fresh designs and a sweet new font! The center band is embossed with the Dots folder and heavily sanded before I stitched over the top and around the edges of the layout repeatedly. 
I stamped the background repeatedly with the Happy Father's Day sentiment using the colors from the new Zoe paper packet.  I filled in a few blank spaces with the heart from Doodled Designs. I added a label from the SOTM (cut with Artistry). I added a liberal dose of white enamel stars.

You can get your own August SOTM for as little as $5, but only in the month of August. Check with your CTMH Consultant or CLICK HERE for more details. Next up on the hop is KAMI'S BLOG. Have fun hopping!

Day 160: It's Your Day Card

I was excited to see the new Viva la Verve Sketch today - how cute is that? I had to make a card with it right away.
I used lots of scrap pieces from my Simple Stories I Am pad. I love the colors in this line! 
Then I added a few stickers (Today is your day and You totally rock) from the Wildwood Assortment left over from my Wanderful pages. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy! Thanks for the fab sketch, Verve!
