CTMH Swirly Seashells

Hey everyone!  I have been really lazy about posting my cards...since I joined Instagram this summer!  So here's another card I made last August, that a crafty friend said I should really put on my blog!  I used some CTMH Woodgrain paper that I was obsessed with to create a frame for my card.  On the front panel I stamped the sentiment from CC1147 Create Kindness-Beautiful.  This was a stamp set only available a short time, which is why I hadn't shared this card.  I stamped the shells from the Swirly Seashells stamp set, with gold pigment ink.  Then embossed with clear embossing powder.  That made it super easy to watercolor with Gansai Tambi watercolors.  I loved the pearly look this gave!  The picture really isn't doing it justice.  I cut the images out with my ScanNcut, but the dies have been recently be sure to pick them up before they are gone!  After everything was dry, I went and added some detail with a white gel pen.

Thanks for joining me!

CTMH~A Child is Born

Hey everyone!  I just wanted to pop in and share a care I made a long time ago, and forgot to share on my blog.  I've been really lazy, and only shared most of my cards on Instagram!  So, make sure and follow me there.  I made a simple card using the CTMH stamp set A Child is Born, one of my favorites from the new Holiday catalog!  I colored the images with my Ziggies, and blended them with the Shimmer Brush...So pretty!  I stamped the Nativity roof on some CTMH woodgrain paper, and then cut all the images out with my ScanNcut.  I used some different CTMH B&T paper for the background, making it appear as a night sky...and keeping this a simple card.  I popped the roof, the lamb, and Baby Jesus up on foam tape.  That made it much easier to nestle the family together under the roof.  I used the die from Woodland Wishes, as the banner, using some gold paper behind it.
