Color Dare 284 - Happy Birthday

We have three separate birthdays to celebrate this week for my aunt, sister-in-law and husband.  I've got two cards in the mail already so was happy to see the blues posted for this week's Color Dare challenge so I could use that as inspiration for my husband's birthday card.

For this card, I used the pattern on page 53 of the Wishes book and changed up the circles to use balloons cut at 1.75", 2.25" and 2.75" from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  I stamped Happy Birthday from the Birthday Times stamp set with White Daisy and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder then sponged with Pacifica ink.  Then I did a quick swipe with a baby wipe across the title to remove left over ink. Since silver was optional for this challenge, I added some with a piece cut from "All About the Gold" Fundamentals  (did  you know the back of the gold is silver? makes it more versatile!)

CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Purposeful Patterns

For this month's CTMH Technique Blog Hop, we have 14 consultants sharing artwork using patterns from our latest Make It From You Heart Volumes.  I'm following Michelle Johns in the hop and am sharing a birthday card I made using pattern 3 from volume 4.  These patterns are great for inspiration and you can add your own touches to add a little extra punch.  In this case, I added the bits of shimmer trim for some sparkle.

I used Chelsea Gardens paper pack for this card and the stamp came with the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge collection.

Next up in the blog hop is Catherine Nowak, head on over to see what she has lined up to share with us.

SOTM Blog Hop - Birthday Time

We have 26 CTMH consultants participating in the March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop; I'm following Jean McNulty for this hop.  It works out really nice for me that this month's stamp has such fun birthday options since we have all kinds of family birthdays in March.

I used pattern #11 from the latest Make It From Your Heart book, volume 4 to make a couple of different cards.  I always think it's so fun to see how different the cards look just by switching up the paper and a couple of accents.

I used Adventure Fundamentals paper,  Basic Circles Thin Cuts and some fun embellishments for these cards.  On the inside of the card, I used the big "Celebrate" stamp for the message.

The full stamp set has all kinds of stamps for your birthday celebrations and can be purchased for just $5 with a qualifying purchase in the month of March.

CTMH Blog Hop - Think Pink

Welcome to the CTMH Blog Hop where we have 16 consultants featuring items that make you Think Pink and are part of this month's special promotion.

I am following Brenda Lapp and decided to create a fun birthday card for a co-worker to feature here.

I used the rose embossing folder for the background and heat set with gold embossing powder.  Then mounted that on top of Raspberry card stock.  The sentiment is from the Notes of Inspiration stamp set inked with Raspberry and I set this off with more Raspberry card stock and gold ribbon.

Feb SOTM - Sunny Thoughts

I'm glad you found my post for the February SOTM Blog Hop featuring fun projects by CTMH Consultants.  This month's stamp is called Sunny Thoughts and we need that about now in Wisconsin where the weather has been a bit gloomy and cold lately!

I am following Michelle Loncar in the hop list this month.  For this card, I'm featuring a side step card using Gimme Some Sugar paper and a flower vase from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge.  The card is super easy to cut, I followed these instructions from the Splitcoaststampers site.

Here is a picture from the side so you can see the "steps"

My clients love to try different styles of cards so leave a comment and let me know your favorite type of fancy fold card then head on over to see what Danielle Black has for the blog hop.

Color Dare 251 - Enjoy Your Adventure

I've been away from blogging for a bit, had a crazy work schedule and then when it got nice out, just HAD to spend more time outside.  The CTMH convention was last week and they shared tons of ideas so I figured I should get back into my blog posts and share some of the fun products we have.

For this card, I a piece of  Prickly Pear paper and cut just the stripes I needed to meet the color challenge.  Then I embossed a piece of White Daisy with the confetti embossing folder and put that next to the colored paper.  The Uptown ribbon pack has this super versatile black and gold ribbon. For a title, I used the No Worries card making stamp set.

Check out Stampaganza where you can purchase two stamp sets and get one FREE through the end of July.
