Rustic Home Fundamentals

Rustic Home Fundamentals is such a fun versatile paper pack!  It is neutral with brown tones on one side and grey tones on the other side of three papers! There is also touch of Gold and Kraft!  

To accent this paper I also used Sea Glass,  the Color of the Year paper in cardstock and Glitter paper, that is only available until August!

The ribbon is from the Rustic Home Ribbon Pack.


The Friends Cricut cut is from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge only available from Close to My Heart!  It is amazing how easily the Glitter paper cut with my Cricut.  I did set my Explore on custom setting glitter paper.

Adventure Fundamental- Home is where the hearts is

The Adventure Fundamental paper is so bright and cheerful! I love the patterns too!

I used Black Glitter paper with the Hearts Thin Cuts for a touch of sparkle to this card!  The glitter paper cut like butter with the Thin Cuts.
The sentiment is cut using the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge and I cut the tiny heart out of the heart paper used as a banner and added a little Shimmer Brush to it for glimmer, though it is hard to see!

The Everything ABC Blog Hop- Letter B


Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter B.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever  the crafter has chosen as their B element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Diana Saunders then you're on the right track!

Using the February Stamp of the Month, Easter Bunny I stamped in Slate ink and then colored with our Watercolor Pencils.

The Bunnies are so cute and make a fun card for Easter or Spring!

The paper used is the retired Lucy.  I was using up me stash and decided to show off the stamp of the month!  Fun side note I used up the rest of that paper pack!
The cute Easter Bunny set is only $5 with a $50 purchase or $17.95 with no additional purchase!

Your next stop on our Everything ABC'S blog Hop is Darlys Recker.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #183

 The Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month, Yuletide Joy, is right up my alley and I have been dying to play with it!

Using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch #183, I got to play with both it and City Sidewalks paper!

I used Lagoon and Cranberry Inks and added a few Bitty Sparkles for a little bling! I would have added more but...Gasp!..I ran out!  I love the curlicue designs on the present!
Oh and have you checked out our new Ink Pads! They are super easy to use!  Love the magnetic closure and the larger ink pad!  I made a little video, that I am having issues posting!  Click here and scroll down a little and you can find it on my Facebook page!

One tip, with the Bitty Sparkles!  They can so easily get away from you!  I use ourPiercing tool to pick them up and transfer them!  I put the tip on the sparkle and then my finger on top to take it off the sheet, transfer it and place it where you want and with a tiny bit of pressure slide it off with my finger!  No losing them or flipping them across the table or putting them where you do not want them!

We would love for you to join us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and share your interpretation of this weeks sketch!

Enchantment Fundamentals

This might be one of my favorite color combos in the Enchantment Fundamental paper pack!  It is all bright colors that are versatile!

The Thin Cut Hearts were a perfect addition to this card! The fun thing about them is you get the solid heart but you also get the thin outline and you could even use the negative!  So quick easy and fun!

The XOXO is from the Short and Sweet stamp set.  It has lots of fun versatile sentiments on it for most any occasion!
