Busy Weekend!

Hi everyone! My family has had a busy weekend. On Saturday my daughter gave birth to her second child and my 4th grandchild! Peyten Rochelle arrived right on her due date. Such a thoughtful child, she waited till morning to start the labor, and arrived in the early evening Smile. After 3 grandsons, we are so excited to finally have a girl! She is a petite 7 lb. 1 oz. and 19” long, she looks just like her brother only maybe with slightly lighter hair & skin color. Without further ado…here she is…..

Ok, now I’m off to clear some space in my craft room…I feel some creativity coming on….

Mojo Monday

Mission accomplished! My goal for this week was to complete and post my Mojo Monday entry on Monday. Here it is.

DSC06279Mojo225Sketch

The hardest part of this challenge was figuring out the dimensions of all the blocks….math has never been my strength Smile. To achieve the watercolor look on the flowers I used a stamping technique called tissue stamping. Basically, you scrunch up a tissue and use it to randomly apply different colored inks to the stamp. For the stems, I selectively inked just the stems and leaves then lightly stamped off some of the ink on a scratch paper so that the color would be softer and more fitting with the watercolor look of the flowers. I stamped the sentiment with chocolate ink, then stamped it again with versamark ink and heat embossed with clear detail embossing powder. The beauty of CTMH’s clear acrylic stamps and blocks…you can see through them to perfectly line up where you want to stamp your image!

Supplies are all CTHM unless otherwise noted.

  • Colonial White & Crème Brulee cardstock
  • Florentine paper pack (NEW! coming out in the new idea book Feb. 1st)
  • Treasure Life stamp set (D1306)
  • Crème Brulee ink pad (Z2167)
  • Goldrush ink pad (Z2123)
  • Twilight ink pad (Z2160)
  • Chocolate ink pad (Z2111)
  • Versamark ink pad (Z891)
  • Chocolate Waxy Flax (Z1088)
  • Opaques pearl gems (Z1336)
  • Clear detail embossing powder
  • Edge distresser (Z1297)

One more challenge….

I came across another challenge blog, CAS-ual Fridays. I couldn’t resist this week’s all black & white challenge. I was inspired by fellow CTMH consultant Lisa Stenz to create this card.

Supplies used are all Close To My Heart

  • White Daisy  and Black cardstock.
  • Hooray Bouquet stamp set (D1491)
  • Universal Backgrounds stamp set (D1477)
  • Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (Z1686)
  • Mini Medley black (Z1393)

  • Opaques pearl self adhesive gems (Z1336)

Clean & Simple challenge

I am really enjoying taking part in some of these challenges. Today’s is for Clean & Simple Stamping. I do find it a challenge to not use a lot of embellishments on my projects, so this is a good one for me to join in on.

DSC06270FTL174

I used another retired CTMH paper pack on this one. Sweetheart is great for Valentine’s Day projects. The hollyhock twill ribbon is also a retired item. The Love Ya! stamp set (D1460) is retiring on January 31st, so you need to act fast to order in time to make your valentines. Click here to order now. While you are on my online shopping site, be sure to check out the “while supplies last” section for some great bargains, including the Sweetheart paper pack for $3 that’s 77% off!

Mojo Monday…….on Wednesday!

This week I am even slower getting my Mojo Monday challenge completed and posted.

For this week’s challenge I used the retired “Bliss” paper pack, chocolate, grey flannel and colonial white cardstock, and dark chocolate striped grosgrain ribbon (Z1617). Close To My Heart’s ruler (Z1471) makes hand stitching super simple. The shapes were cut using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (Z1686). The sentiment is from the Key Moments stamp set (B1392). I popped up the sentiment using 3-D foam tape (Z1151)
