Thankful For You Card

I haven't been crafting much this summer, which is a very sad thing for me. Tonight I broke into some of my newest goodies, most of which aren't even available until the new idea book goes live in a couple of weeks. I figure whatever gets me creating again is what I'm gonna use...and this fall I want to really make a goal of making time for myself and my craft therapy!
Since there is an adorable new sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, I decided I wanted to make something happy! I grabbed some papers from the upcoming Oh What Fun! papers, which is ostensibly for Christmas, but I have this thing about pink... Anyhoooo, combined with the September SOTM (I know, this entire project is all sneak peeks) I've managed a cheerful thank you card by re-purposing holiday items. You can also see a peek of the new stitches stamps coming soon. Seriously big heart eyes for that one!
I used a lot of bashful shimmer brush on the little candies and cocoa mug, along with a fair amount of clear stickles. The whole card sparkles in real life, which lifts my crafty spirits and brings glittery peace to my soul. I'm linking this project up to the Heart 2 Heart Challenges Cuteness Overload.

I hope you'll pop over to Atlantic Hearts to join in this week's sketch challenge fun!

I HEART Crafting Card

Have you seen this month's Stamp of the Month yet? If you are a crafter, this is gonna be your jam!
I combined the SOTM with this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I used some of the (retiring soon) Central Park and Beautiful Friendship papers. I used a lot of pieces from the included PML cards, fussy cutting the banner and Good Times sentiment. 
I added one of the sentiments from the SOTM, along with that awesome ampersand from one of the new Stacy Julian stamp sets (so adorable!!) to create my own custom sentiment cluster. 
I also stamped the typewriter multiple times on grey cardstock and Beautiful Friendship floral paper to piece together my sweet typewriter. I added extra sparkle "banners" and some red glitter gel to finish off this fun card. I hope you'll hop over to Atlantic Hearts and play along this week!
