Merry and Bright Blog Hop






Hey everyone! Welcome to the Blog Hops with Heart Merry and Bright hop!  If you came from Amie's Blog, you are in the right place.

This month I was inspired by all the great stitching by my crafty friends Wendy and Kelly...and Jennifer McGuire.  Jennifer made a video showing how to make ornaments die cut with felt.  I thought I would try it out with some of my CTMH crafty stash.  I used the Cozy Christmas Thin Cuts and stamp set to make my project.  These are slightly embarrassing, to be honest...you can tell I do not sew, lol!  But, they were super fun to make with my kiddos!






 Now continue the hop to Becca's blog!  You won't want to miss her amazing card!  Thanks for joining us!

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 released...so 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.

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.
