Hello Friend Card using Grateful Heart



Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Fall!

It's crazy to say I have been in Christmas card mode this past month, I just haven't had a second to create anything Fall or Autumn! Lol This is my first card using the Grateful Heart - Cardmaking set! This is one of my favorite stamp sets in the catalog! That butterfly is gorgeous! You could use all sorts of coloring mediums for that butterfly! Watercolor pencils (colored with or without water) ShinHan markers and blending marker, (which I used here) Shimmer brush, watercolor paints, and stamp pads with a water brush. These all look amazing! 
I used the gold shimmer brush over my butterfly after coloring my butterfly. You can't really tell, but it looks very shimmery! Make sure you use a Archival black stamp pad that is waterproof! If you don't, it will tend to bleed. 
I used some gold glitter paper to bring out the gold on the butterfly. The gold gems really sparkled up this card too! Have fun using this stamp set! If you would like to purchase this set and the products, please visit my website @ http://lizjohnson.clostomyheart.com .This set is so versatile and creates beautiful friendship and thank you cards!

"Choose Joy" Cards using Boutique and Grateful Heart



Hello Crafty Friends!

I am so excited to share today these two pretty cards with you! I designed the first card and thought how fun it would be to create one using Grateful Heart too! So I created two different cards using CTMH's Boutique and Grateful Heart. How pretty are these using the same card pattern?? I love how different they are, but yet they are so similar!
I love how you can take the branch stamp and create it into a wreath! So much fun!!

On card #1, I used the first and second generation stamping technique on the wreath using Peacock ink. I used the gorgeous Sugarplum gems around the outside of wreath, one on each side of the zip strip, and one on the pixie heart.

On card #2, I used Sapphire ink, Saffron ink, and Pomegranate ink on the wreath. I added the gold gems randomly around the outside of the wreath, one on each side of the zip strip, and one on the Pomegranate heart.

Have fun designing and mix-matching your card patterns like the one I did here!

Fresh Air Sunburst Card and Instructions

Hello Crafty Friends!
 
I am excited to share another one of my favorite cards! A sunburst card! You can create these cards using your favorite paper packet and any combinations of patterns! This card is my favorite!! They are so much fun! I hope the following instructions will help you create your own sunburst card! Have fun!! :)
 
 
Cut a piece of white cardstock at 5"x 2 3/4" for the
sunburst base.
 
Cut 2-4 of your choice of patterned paper
at 1 1/2" x 4". I selected two
patterns and cut 6 for this card.
 
 
Cut your 1 1/2" x 4 piece corner to corner using
your paper trimmer.
It should look like this.
 
Measure and mark 2 1/2" (halfway mark) on the white base.
 
Line up the grooves at the 2 1/2" mark. Glue these next to each other
rotating the patterns.
 
Your white base will look like this when you are done.
 
Flip your base over and trim all edges using your scissors or paper trimmer.
 
Your base should look like this! You have now created a sunburst base!
 
I glued these additional pieces to create my Fresh Air card.
I glued the sunburst base to a piece of nutmeg cardstock that measures 5 1/4" x 4". The glacier strip is 3/4" x 5 1/4". The brown strip
is 1/2" x 5". I glued all pieces to a standard size card 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".
I stamped "Just Breathe" in nutmeg ink using the Fresh Air cardmaking stamp
set. I added some ribbon at the top and shapes and sequins to the right side of the sentiment.
You have now created a sunburst card! Yay! :) If you have any questions, please send me an email
@ lizann85@outlook.com
 
Here is the shopping list:
 
X7232B Fresh Air paper packet $9.95
Z4185 Fresh Air Shapes $4.95
Z2830 Nutmeg ink pad $7.95
X5952 Nutmeg cardstock $14.50
