Thankful for You Card

 

Hello Foxy Thankful for You Card

Today’s card is another created with Close To My Heart’s June Stamp of the MonthHello Foxy. While a bit cutesy, this stamp set definitely is versatile!

Hello Foxy Stamp of the Month

A couple of fun things I really liked about this card and wanted to point out are:

1.) While the wreath in this stamp set isn’t specifically designed to go with our Wreath Thin Cut, I thought it wasn’t too shabby of a union.

At first I was planning to fussy cut this image but right before I grabbed my scissors to do so, I remembered this die and wondered how closely it would match up.

2.) The second thing I did (which I really like how it turned out–even though it is super subtle) is to use our Wood Slats Embossing Folder with our Woodgrain Pattern (from our Rustic Home Fundamentals Paper Collection.)  It adds just a little more texture and a little more depth to the card.

Don’t forget, the Hello Foxy Stamp of the Month is only available through the end of June.  To get your own stamp set, please visit MY ONLINE CTMH STORE.

Here’s a card I made using this stamp set.  I really like how it turned out.  I combined the stamp set with the *NEW* and wildly popular No Worries Paper Collection.

And truthfully, it’s not hard to see why this paper packet is so popular–it has amazing papers that create awesome projects!

I love the unique look of this card. Granted, you have have to be selective on where you write on the inside of the card to ensure it doesn’t show through, but the creative layout of this card is worth it, I think.  Wouldn’t you agree?

St. Patrick’s Day Self-Closing Box

Tea-rrific St Patricks Self Closing Box

St. Patrick’s Day will be here before you know it!  I was teaching a group of friends how to make Self-Closing Boxes last night and decided to make myself a St. Patrick’s Day themed one.  I really like how it turned out!  These boxes are super fun as all you need to do to open them is to pinch the two sides together.  No need to fasten it closed or undo any type of closure, like ribbon, velcro, etc.

Spring-themed Self Closing Box

I’ve made a few in the past and always love how unique they turn out.

Each one is beautiful in their own way.  And I find with each new one I create, I love it more than the last!  And that definitely holds true with this St. Patrick’s Day one I created.

March Stamp of the Month Tea-rrific

I ended up using Close To My Heart’s March Stamp of the MonthTea-rrific to create the pattern to my shamrock.  It’s a use a little out of the theme of the set, but it turned out great!

Angled St. Patrick's Self-Closing Box

Gold Shimmer Brush

I used CTMH’s newest Cricut CollectionFlower Market to cut out the shamrock shape for the focal point.  In addition to stamping the shamrock, I also used our *NEW* Gold Shimmer Brush to add some shine and sparkle to it.  It was hard to capture in the photo, but it looks BEAUTIFUL!
