CTMH: Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop: Hey Foxy

Welcome to another SOTM Blog Hop!  If you arrived from Jen's blog, you're on the right track.  If you're starting here, just keep clicking through the links until you get back here.

It's a very exciting time for all of us who are CTMH consultants.  The new product we've been drooling over and playing with for a month is now available to all of you, our customers! I love this month's stamp set.  It's completely adorable and so on trend.

Isn't it so fun?  Here's the card I made: 

Simple and sweet, just the way I like it.  This card is perfect for someone who just needs a smile.  I used a strip of new Smoothie washi tape and some Flamingo Dots. (SOOO excited about both these products!)  The wood grain washi was introduced in October.  The fox is stamped with Smoothie and rolled in Chocolate ink and then I cut her out and popped her up.  The sentiment is also stamped in Chocolate.  Here's another angle of the dimension:

Now it's time to hop on over to Pamela's blog and see what she has created with this fun set.  Don't forget that this set is only available for the month of February, so talk to your CTMH consultant about ordering and make sure you snatch up some new goodies, too!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #40: Gear Up Birthday Card

Hello and welcome to another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  This is my final post as a member of the design team, sad, I know, but I hope to participate in the future.  I had a lot of fun with this sketch!

Here is the card I made:

I used a brand new stamp set called Robot Family.  It's so cute!  I stamped all the images and sentiments in Memento Black ink and coloured the robot in with a Metallic silver marker as well as a combination of Whisper, Slate and Indian Corn Blue markers.  Here's a close up of that adorable robot so you can see the shimmer:

I also stamped the inside.  I love the sentiment that goes with this set!  My daughter thought it was pretty funny, when she finally understood it.  :)

Well, that's it for me as a design team member.  I hope you'll continue to play along and have fun with the fabulous sketches.  Make sure to create something this week and link it up here.

Happy Creating!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #38: With Heartfelt Sympathy

Welcome to another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  It's been a fabulous weekend for me.  I held my retreat at Treeholm Studio and it was so nice to get some serious crafting in.  Although I didn't get everything on my list done, (who does???) I did manage to complete the card for today's sketch.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card: 

Sympathy cards are sometimes hard to do.  This one is for a workshop I'm doing on Jan. 24, all sympathy cards.  If you're in the area and interested, let me know.  I've used Frosted paper, and turned this wintry paper into some sympathy cards I will be pleased to give when someone's needing one.  Here's a close up of the popped part and those stamped flowers:

Products used: 
Frosted Paper Packet (retiring at the end of January!)
Twilight and Slate ink
Sponge dauber

Now, use this sketch and create a project.  It can be any type: card, layout, mini-album ...  Just make sure to link it up here.

Happy Creating!
