New Product Blog Hop and a giveaway!


Welcome to our New Product Blog Hop!  We will be featuring all the amazing NEW products from the recently released Fall/Winter Catalog and Idea book.  If you have come here from ANGEL'S BLOG, you are on the right path!

This month we have over 50 fabulous Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using lots of new CTMH stamps, papers, goodies (and probably the new Artiste Cartridge!) on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I used the sketch from Freshly Made to create my project. I just love their sketches! I used the beautiful new Avonlea Papers, which are my favorite new prints. I pulled my stamps from the new Scroll Home Decor workshop, though - how adorable is that little flower spray? I stamped the spray in Slate (a NEW color) and then again on scrap CS using the new Twilight Pigment pad.The pigment ink flowers got heat embossed with Clear Embossing powder, cut out and layered over the stamped image. Then I filled in the centers with small pieces trimmed from the new Silver Shimmer Trim and the new Black & Grey Sparkles. I added a gathered ribbon accent down the side using one of my favorite new embellies, the Slate Satin Polka Dot Ribbon. It's so shiny and dreamy!! I already have two rolls of it!


I cut a 3 1/4" Deco Layer Oval 5 Frame on my Art Philosophy Cartridge and used the new Silver Shimmer Trim to cover the frame. If you line up the pieces closely, you can't even see the seams! Plus on the curvy bits on the inner edges I found it was really hard to trim them precisely...so I learned that you can fill in tiny gaps with the Silver Glitter Glitz. Once it dries you can't even tell! I had bought a similar (contraband) product before convention, but CTMH's Shimmer Trim is self adhesive and way easier to work with! I am in love!

The sentiments I used are from the exclusive stamp set that CTMH gave us at Convention. It's one of the things I love about being a consultant - we get to go to these amazing training extravaganza productions, AND they shower us with awesome SWAG (like the super adorable damask BAG that they are also giving away to lucky gals who sign up in August while supplies last). It's super cute with awesome sentiments and a cute cowboy hat and boots, because we were in Dallas. I am lucky enough to have one EXTRA brand new set of the Convention Stamp Set, which is not available to order...so I'm going to share! Details on how to enter are at the bottom of this post! I filled in the Smile on the sentiment image with Silver Glitter Glitz. When working in a small space like that I put on a small blob of glitz gel, then use a straight pin to move the sparkle out into the corners of the image. I used the glitz to edge the second sentiment banner too.

It would be fantastic to win. I had to cancel for convention just a month before. I really, really missed being able to go.

Wendy Coffman said...

I've had to stay home before too, after a couple of my boys were born. It was so hard to be home instead of at convention. Maybe next year!! Wishes do come true...at Disney!

Miriam Prantner said...

Loving all the glitter and sparkle on this card, and I'm following you via email now.

I love the gray and all the shimmer. I missed this years' convention. Went to Florida a few years back and Washington DC two years back and loved them both. Hope to go next year to Florida again!

Jen Sannes said...

What a terrific card! I love the way you used the silver trim to cover the frame piece. Beautiful work.
:)

Karen said...

You continue to outdo yourself! When I first saw your card I thought maybe there was a new silver adhesive paper that I missed because you covered the frame so flawlessly! I can't believe it is pieced with the shimmer trim!Really pretty card!

Wendy, your artwork just amazes me. All...the...time! What a stunning card!
