Women of Foundations Card Workshop - Fluttering By To Say Hi!

Here is the final card in the Women of Foundations Card Workshop for February 2016.  This card is really fun and I think it can be sent for all sorts of occasions.  This particular card will probably take the most time to put together but I think it's worth it!  

Here is the list of supplies and the cut measurements in case you want to make this card with your own paper:

A Tree Stamp Set by Close To My Heart A1124 (unfortunately this one is retired but here's a current stamp that is very similar and really cute!  Keep Your Chin Up A1167)
1/8" Silver ribbon from Affray

And here's a video showing you how to put it all together:

Here is another card in the series of cards for the Women of Foundations workshop coming up in February.  This particular card uses the Sangria paper line from Close To My Heart as well as the January Stamp of the Month, Beloved Blooms.  I really like this stamp and there is so much you can do with it!  I stamped the rose in Sorbet and Eggplant ink and then stamped the sentiment in Versafine Black Onyx and heat embossed it with some Ranger Clear Embossing Powder.

Women of Foundations Card Workshop - With Gratitude Card

This is another post in my series for the Women of Foundations card workshop.  This card is called With Gratitude.  You can never have enough thank you cards is my thought!  I really like this simple little card because you can make a whole bunch out of a very little amount of patterned paper.

Skylark Pattern Paper (retired CTMH paper) - 2" x 5.25"
Mat - CTMH Cocoa Cardstock - 2.25" x 5.25"

Stamp Set:  CTMH Thanks D1361 (retired set)

Women of Foundations Card Workshop - Confident Encouragement Card

I have a workshop coming up at my church in February and as a part of the workshop I am creating this blog post to assist in putting the kits together.  I am calling this card Confident Encouragement.  I think it would be a great card for a graduate or someone who has embarked on a new career.  I've created a video to show you how to put together the kits I created for this workshop.  If you were not at the workshop or want to create the card again using your own paper here is the cutting information and other supplies I used in putting the kit together.

Stamp Set:  Close To My Heart A Thing Well Done (D1606) retired hostess set

Here's the video that will walk you through putting this card together:

Christmas 2015 Projects Catch Up - Base & Bling!

I'm trying to catch up some Christmas projects on the blog.  This year I made some necklaces for some special girls in my life using some Close To My Heart Base & Bling items.  I love the Base & Bling jewelry!  You can create some very cute handmade gifts in a very short time.  I did have an issue using the oval pendants with the stickers I wanted since they were square stickers - note to self to make sure you ordered the same size pendants as the stickers you have your heart set on.  But they turned out really cute anyway - I LOVE this penguin!  I created some necklace holders using some white cardstock with a couple slits on the corners.  I stamped the sentiment using another retired CTMH set called Say It All (C1632).  I then created simple boxes from some retired CTMH paper called Skylark.  The tags were cut from my Cameo and stamped using the Christmas Post (D1610) stamp set from CTMH and heat embossed with some fun glitter embossing powder from Sparkle & Sprinkle that I got at my Scrapbook Expo last year.  Unfortunately the pictures did not do the sparkle justice.

For Christmas my hubby bought me the My Favorite Things
Quilt Dies!  I've made a whole bunch of inlaid die cuts with the Quilt Square Cover Up.  These are my first MFT dies and they are awesome!  I will definitely be buying more of these!!  It was so easy to get the cuts out and they came out perfectly.  I backed the frame with scor-tape and it was really simple to place the inlaid pieces in.

Sentiment - Balloon Wishes (D1667) from Close to My Heart
Paper - Hip Hip Hooray 6X6 from American Crafts and black from CTMH
