Hi, Joann here today sharing two Christmas cards that I made using the Close to My Heart “Make It Merry” stamp set.
Here is my first card…
I used CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to cut my tag, which coordinates with this stamp set. I took CTMH Pear and Topiary Inks to stamp my image onto my tag (I tried to create an ombre effect, it’s acutally a bit more noticeable in person). I cut a piece of vellum a bit smaller than my colored card stock and then tied some ribbon to my top panel before gluing it down to my card base.
I finished it off by adding a bell to a bow I tied, scattered a few TCP Relish Mix and popped my label on some foam adhesive to add a bit more dimension to my card. That is all for this card!
Now my next card is mimicking a card that I posted on my blog a few days ago. I loved how it turned out, I did make a few changes to make it a little different.
Here it is…
I took some stitched circle dies I have to cut my circles out of some pattern paper. I stamped my sentiment, also from “Make It Merry“, onto some vellum with VersaMark and heat embossed it with some black embossing powder.
I drew some white lines and then glued my circles down, adding some dimension to 2 of them. I scattered some tone on tone TCP Relish Mix to match with the pattern paper. Super easy and simple!
Well that is all for today! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hi, Joann here. Thanks for stopping by! Today I have a quick and easy thank you card using the CTMH Artiste Cartridge.
I cut several of the diamond image (pg. 49) out of some different colored card stock and clear embossed a few of them using the Honeycomb Flair to add some texture. I randomly placed them to create a fun background for my card. I then cut “Thanks” (pg. 65) for my sentiment, 4 times and stacked them on top of one another to add dimension and placed it on top of the banner (pg. 35) in which was cut from vellum.
I finished off my card by adding a few adhesive pearls. That’s it, hope you liked it and as always, thanks for stopping by!

Hi Crafty Friends!
Yesterday I posted that I was taking TheDailyMarker’s 30 day color challenge to complete 30 handmade project life cards. Well I guess I was a little excited and the official start date is TODAY…. so I will end up doing 31 cards during this challenge.
For today’s Project life card I am using two different Close To My Heart stamp sets. The first is the CTMH Stamp of the month : Choose Happy, the second set is Your own kind of wonderful. I was so excited to use the new SOTM that this was a perfect time to break it out. This design would work fantastic on a card as well and you could put pretty much anything in the frames.
Here is the PL card that I created.
I stamped the frame with Memento black ink and then masked off the frame leaving the center open to stamp the butterflies. I used Copic markers to color in the large butterfly and then covered with CTMH Liquid Glass. Once everything was dry, I cut out the frame and used foam adhesive to pop it up on top of another framed stamped image on a 3×4 card.
Now I have a fun spring filler card for my Project Life album.
Thanks so much for visiting. See you back tomorrow for day #2 of the color challenge!
