Welcome to the CTMH Blog Hop !!!

Welcome to our Close to my Heart Summer 2009 Idea Book Blog Hop! Almost 40 Close to my Heart Consultants are celebrating the upcoming release of the Summer 2009 Idea Book, which goes "live" May 1, by sharing their amazing creations using new products via their blogs. This is simple do to- just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Ready for a sneak peak at some new products?! Here we go!












Both cards are from the "Originals" Card Idea book. The first design is called Overview. Both cards features The Moon Doggie Paper pack (level 2) X7111B. Colors used are Cranberry, Desert Sand, Garden Green, & Indian Corn Blue.



I used the new stamp set Extreme Happiness C1356 & The sentiment is from D1187 for every occasion. After stamping the flower (using the 2nd generation Rock & Roll technique, page 23 of the summer 2009 idea book), it was cut out and adhered with 3D Foam Tape (Z1151) above a felt leaf that I stamped a leaf on using New England Ivy ink. The felt is from our new "Heartfelt Whimsy Die Cuts" Z1145 which is die cut felt and I LOVE it! I used Garden Green brads in the center of the small flowers, after coloring the centers with ablender pen & Garden Green Ink.


The next card design is "Heartfelt Classic" I used the May stamp of the month D1349 "Be Yourself" This stamp set is so much fun. Same colors & paper pack as above as above. I paper pieced the dress from patterned paper and used Prisma Glitter Z134 with the write n rub pen (1762) to accent the flowers on the dress 7 in the center of the flowers. Liquid glass Z679 (another one of my favorite products) was used to shine up her boots. The ribbon is from the ribbon rounds chocolate collection.
