WOTG Believe Card


Here is the second card I made for the swap using all the new stamp sets in the NEW CTMH Fall/Winter 2011 Catalog. This card was made using the following items:

WOTG Stamp Set Believe (G1030)
WOTG Paper - Believe (G1030)
White Fun Flock
Stardust Glitz Glitter Glue (Z1313)
Scalloped Edge Round Punch (Z1392)
Green Buttons
Crystal Blue Ink Pad (Z2117)
Black Ink Pad (Z2105)
Pear Ink Pad (Z2197)

I absolutely love the gestures this Santa is making, with his arms open wide, welcoming everyone! The fun flock made a great textured fluffy beard, as white as the snow and the glitz added that sparkle that Santa carries everywhere. The bright colors completed the look of this cheery holiday card.

Happy Birthday Card (CTMH)


I just made this card for a swap using all the new stamps in the new CTMH Fall/Winter Catalog 2011. This card was made with the following items:

Roxie Paper (X7140B)
Vanilla Cream Cardstock (X5646)
Celebration Stamp Set (from new Cricut Bundle Z1686)
Silver Glitz Glitter Glue (Z1482)
1/2" border from Roxie paper (excess)
Smoothie Ink Pad (Z2196)
Desert Sand Ink Pad (Z2118)

I love the way that the cupcake liner stamp looks so realistic and swirly. The excess 1/2" border had little silver dots on it and I embellished it further with the silver glitter glue, and added more silver to the cupcake frosting. It's amazing how that little bit of sparkle really jazzed up this card.
