Thank You Flower Card with CTMH August Stamp of the Month

I inked an embossing folder and ran it through for the background.  Then stamped the sentiment and frame with the Close To My Heart stamp of the month set for August.  I love how the frames and sentiments are interchangeable and you get multiple colors involved.  The flower is from the stamp set, "A Budding Friendship".

Chic Baby Blanket, Pink and Zebra

Made this for a dear friend and it is soooo "her"!  Can't wait to give it to her.  I wanted to share since I love the way the embossed backdrop (Shield 7 from Embroidery Library) really lets the text be read so easily even on this crazy plush fabric.  Takes about an extra 30 minutes of embroidery time, but so worth it, I think.  :)

"Love" Card

A simple card.  Masculine yet romantic, I think.  The hexagons are very trendy.  This "Love" stamp comes with the new Artistry cartridge from Close to My Heart.  I popped up the sentiment with a little bit of foam.

Mason Jar with Flowers Card

This sweet mason jar with flowers was just too cute.  I cut the white shape from one of the layers from the Artistry cartridge as well as the image.  Stickles and Glossy Accents give it a finishing touch.  The bow is also from Close to My Heart.

"We're the Perfect Blend" Card

This great cut is from Artistry.  I added some glossy accents on the hearts.  The awesome sentiment is from a great coffee-themed set from Scrappy Moms Stamps.  I used a Martha Steward Border Punch for the lacy border.

"Love" Card with Artistry

This layer function is so much fun on the Artistry cartridge.  I love the borders, too.  Purple and green is a favorite color combo of mine and I added some stickles to the word "Love" to make it pop!  This would be great for a wedding, a bridal shower, or for a sweetheart.

"Oh, snap!" Crabby Card with Artistry

Made this crab card with Artistry.  The sequins are also from CTMH.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps.  I think this little crab is on the beach at night with some sparkling starfish.  Could be cute for a birthday or a number of other occasions.  Hope you have an awesome day today and celebrate Labor Day with people you love!

A Simple Card for a New Neighbor

Made this card to go with a gift for a new neighbor.  I embroidered a couple of towels and another neighbor will add some baked goods.  Quick, simple, sweet. :)

Projects from Close to My Heart's New Artistry Cartridge

I've made several cards with the new "Artistry" cartridge from CTMH.  Here is the first.  Love this yummy donut and the sentiment, "Life is Sweet".  I embossed the background with an inked embossing folder. Stay tuned for more cards and projects to come this week. :)
