Simple Thank you Card using the January SOTM

Hello Crafty Friends!
I have been busy enjoying my first time paper crafting in my studio since I have been home from the hospital! It was exactly what I needed today! I have been working on some thank you cards and came up with this cute simple card using the "Card Captions" January Stamp of the Month! Love how this card turned out! Hope this card inspires you! Enjoy! Here are the instructions to make this card:

1. Cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Run this through your
Cuttlebug using the Z4232 Swiss Dot embossing folder. Cut a 1/8" off the bottom and one side of your 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece. 2. Cut a piece of Candy Apple cardstock (light side) to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Glue this to your card base. Glue the white cardstock to the Candy Apple cardstock piece. 

 3. Cut out your flower border using Z4241 Decorative Borders and Peach cardstock. 

4. Cut a strip 1/8" x 4 1/8" using the Candy Apple cardstock (light side). Glue to the back of the Peach floral border.
Trim your piece to 4 1/8" and glue to the top of the stitched center of your white embossed piece.

5. Stamp "Thank You" in Candy Apple ink. Stamp again in second generation and move the stamp a little but to give it a double image. 6. Wrap a piece of Z4213 Silver Embossing Thread around your finger and pinch the center of the thread and attach to the back of a heart from the Z4254 So Much Happy Stickers. Attach with a glue dot and place below the stamped "Thank You". Add a silver gem from the Z4191 Silver Gems to the center of the heart.
7. Cut a 1/2" x 4 1/8" piece of red gingham zip strip from X7241B So Much Happy paper packet. Glue this to the bottom of the card. Add two small silver gems to the left side of the card. 


This card is very versatile and would be cute in any color! Have fun! :)
Stop by again soon! I am so excited to share my next 20 card workshop and files coming soon!

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!
