Creatively Artsyis my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.
I have another Valentine card for you here today using pre-colored images form Fred She Said. The roses on the sides are from the Hearts and Roses set. This set comes in Seven Pre-Colored choices. The focal image is from the Better Than Chocolate and comes in three colored versions. The papers, ribbon and flourishes is all from Close to my Heart. The hand stitching is another pattern from the Close to my Heart Stitch Guide. This guide is loaded with lots of stitching options. The card previous to this post was stitched using the guide also.
Here is a Valentine card I made using a Fred She Said image called "I Love You This Much". In the past my cards all had hand stitching on them. It's been a long time since I stitched on one. I used to make up my own stitch designs, but this one came from a Close to My Heart Ruler called the Stitch Guide. It's quite easy to use. Just put a foam mat down with the paper on top and the stitch guide on top of that. Then just pierce through the holes using a piercing tool, and then stitch. The embellishments in the top corners are called Flamingo Dots and the Heart by the sentiment were punched out of the Pink Collection of glitter papers. There are three sheets. One each of a light pink, medium pink and the one I used is the darkest pink. Both of these items will be available through Close to My Heart starting on February 1st here on my website.
Here is the last post on the Thank You cards I made for my granddaughter Mya to give her 1st grade teacher for Christmas. The paper is from the Frosted Papers from Close to my Heart. Burlap ribbon and the sentiment is also from CTMH. The adorable Kiss Me Scottie pre-colored image is from Fred She Said.
My card today started out being a Thank You card but I needed another Christmas Card. I used the Red pre-colored Caroling Angel from Fred She Said. I thought it looked a little boring so I then printed out the image from the Poinsettias and Holly, cut it out and mounted in the upper right corner. The papers are from the Close to my Heart Sparkle and shine papers. Challenges with this card: Craftitude - Christmas Sparkle
