Heart2Heart Challenges - Fun Folds!

Today we have a FUN Folds challenge at Heart2Heart!  I created a bendy card using our tropical Calypso paper pack and our adorable C1651 Tickled Pink flamingo stamp set.
I couldn't resist adding some googly eyes to my beach loving birds and some liquid glass on the CTMH cricut cut sun shape.  For the cricut cut palm tree, I used our Bronze alcohol marker to add cross hatching on the trunk for some dimension.
I had so much fun creating this beach scene card!  I love that it folds flat for mailing but with the help of slots and tabs easily creates a 3-D scene.  I hope you'll join us at Heart2Heart this week and get your Fun Fold on!  All you need to enter is to have some CTMH product on your project and add your photo to the Linky!

Stay crafty my friends!

Heart2Heart Challenges - Baby Love

Heart2Heart Challenge has a "Baby Love" theme this week so I decided to turn mine into a Mother's Day card because you can't have a baby without a mom!  This is the card I sent out to my Mom and MIL this year.  I used some retired Balloon Ride paper mixed with some Sorbet, Colonial White and White Daisy Cardstock.
 I used our CTMH cartridges to cut all the images for this shadow box card.  I water colored the individual images on the bouquet and then pop dotted some of the flowers to give them dimension.

This shows how the card folds down for mailing.
The cream colored panels are embossed with our Hearts folder for a little extra love!
Here is the card all folded up and also at an angle so you can see the depth of the shadow box frame.
I hope all you Moms out there had a wonderful Mother's Day this year!  I drove out to get my daughter from college for the summer on Friday so I have all three of my kids under my roof again and that makes me VERY happy!  

I hope you'll join our challenge at Heart2Heart and share your "Baby Love" or mother's day projects with us!  As long as you have some CTMH product on your project you can link up and share the love!

National Scrapbooking Day - Happy Time Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Scrapbooking Day Happy Times Blog Hop!  If you've come from Brenda's blog you are on the right track. The complete list of all participating CTMH bloggers can be found HERE

I decided to make a card featuring some of the cheery yellow flower paper in the Happy Times pack along with the sweet little girl from our new B1526 Lovely Garden stamp set.  I stamped her in Memento ink and colored her in with our Shinhan markers.  I love how the polka dots and stripes came out on her dress made by removing ink with our colorless blending pen.
I add a splash of sparkles for water and some shine.
The Happy Times National Scrapbook special is good through the month of May.  You can get the paper pack for FREE with a $60 order and the stamp set is a D size priced at $17.95.  I love the variety of papers in this kit - especially the beautiful gold foil papers!  To get your set, visit my shopping site at:

Now hop on over to my friend Haley's blog and see what wonderful creation she is sharing with us today!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Stay crafty my friends!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo to all my friends!  This little guy would like to help you party the night away - he may have already had a margarita or two as he seems to be spilling some of his booty already!
Love this adorable pinata stamp in our new Seasonal 2 book!  He's just $2.95 and makes such a fun birthday card!  
I paired him up with our Sangria Paper Pack because I thought the colors were perfect for him!  Here is the back side of this fun flip card:
And that is another M size $2.95 cutie right there - called Happy, Happy Birthday!
These line stamps are perfect for coloring in with our Shinhan Markers!  You can get all these items right from my shopping site and delivered to your house - when that white CTMH box hits your front door it's like a craft party in a box!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Stay crafty my friends!

May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Celebrate with Cake!

Welcome to the May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop where we are featuring the limited edition Celebrate with Cake stamp set!  If you have come here from Michelle's Blog you are on the right track.  If you get lost along the way you can see the full list of participating CTMH bloggers HERE.

Today's card features our brand new Magical Paper Pack from our Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book!  This paper is a fun nod to Disney with its bright cheery colors and patterns but also perfect for general celebration projects.  I decided to make a shadow box pop up display card to focus on the awesome build-a-cake aspect of the May SOTM.
Completely open, this card will stand on its own but the magical part (see why I chose this paper - LOL) is that it folds down flat into a standard sized envelope! Here is it closing down...
...and fully closed flat and ready to slip into an envelope.
This shows the depth of the shadow box - and the cute watercolored cake!  The white twine on the Glitter Paper balloons is another new product from the Seasonal Expression 2 book - its nice and thin so it ties easily with no extra bulk.
I used some CTMH cricut cuts to decorate the front of the card and added a bit of liquid glass to the sentiment to keep it stiff.  

If you are ready to go shopping and check out the brand new Seasonal Expression 2 and get your Celebrate with Cake set for just $5 with a $50 order then hop on over to my shopping site at:

Let's go see what wonderful creation Gina has to share today!
