“Happy Birthday” CTMH Build-a-Cake Stamp Set

Hi, Joann here today sharing a birthday card with you using the Close to My Heart “Build-a-Cake” stamp set!

Here it is…

This is a really fun stamp set to have! I started off my stamping my cake image using CTMH Inks in colors Black, Honey and Cotton Candy! I did want to point out that the top layer image of my cake is part of the stamp set (the original image has some flowers, but after I stamped my image I took a blending pen and some of the Cotton Candy ink and filled those flowers in to give me a polka dotted cake layer). I then took a black gel pen to outline my cake and add some small details to my flower on top and simply layered my top panel to some pattern paper.

I completed my card by stamping my sentiment onto some vellum and adhered both my sentiment and some AWESOME TCP Relish Mix to my card. I know in the first picture my top left sequins look a bit purple but it’s actually pink, I think my light was hitting it a bit too much, but you can see the pink in the second photo a lot better.

Well that is all for today, thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!

Here is a look at the stamp set I used!

“Oh Happy Day” CTMH Cricut Artiste Collection

Hi friends! Joann here today on The Crafty Pickle blog, thank you so much for stopping by!

As you may know, I own 4 out of 5 of the Cricut Collections that Close to My Heart offers. I absolutely love them. So with that being said I took one of the stamp sets from the Cricut Artiste Collection to create my card!

I started out with stamping and masking some balloons onto my front panel using CTMH Inks in colors Lagoon, Cotton Candy, and Honey and stamped the balloon strings using the same stamp set with some CTMH Black Ink.

Using the same stamp set from the Cricut Artiste Collection, I took one of the sentiments and stamped it with some Honey Ink and used my scissors to cut it out, there is an image on this cartridge that will cut this banner.

Before gluing my top panel to the base of my card, I took an older CTMH stamp set One Way Border and stamped one of the images multiple times with Black Ink to create a background. I finished it off by gluing my top panel down and gluing some TCP Relish Mix to my card.

Hope you enjoyed and thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!

Paula’s Card Share

Hi Friends! It’s Paula here with a card share.
For the card base I used white cardstock and the patterned paper is from The Stamps of Life. The stamp set I used is from Close to My Heart. I created a shaker window using a 3×4 rectangle die I have in my stash. Then I added some acetate for the shaker window and relish mix from the shop for the shakers. I fussy cut out a stamped image of the ice cream cone from the set and paper pieced it together then popped it up on some foam tape.

Hey Crafty friends! It’s Stephanie here today to share my latest card using The Crafty Pickle flair.

My sweet friend from high school (yep, we’ve been friends a LONG time!) had a birthday a week ago and I made her this card:

hbd 2u card

It’s a pretty simple card, using scrap papers from  my stash, some rumpled ribbon, foam alphas and this very cute elephant flair button! She adores elephants and when I first saw this button, she came to mind!

Isn’t the flair button the cutest?! I just love it and hope she enjoys this sweet card as well.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope it’s a crafty one for you!

Mini Note Card Set

Hi friends, Joann here today sharing some mini note cards that I created for my son’s teacher using CTMH Treats of Friendship stamp set!

I stamped my images on some watercolor paper and colored them in using some Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I stamped my sentiment and layered my top panel to some fun foam for some dimension and stacked that onto some colored card stock.

I finished my cards by adding a bit of glossing accents to my sprinkles…really liked the way they turned out. Well that is all for today, thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday Card

Hi friends! Joann here today, thank you so much for stopping by!

Today I am sharing a card using the new TCP Gold Foil Sentiments Flair!

Isn’t this set GORGEOUS!?!? I love it and you will definitely see me using most if not all of these flairs to create cards! Not only are they fabulous for cards but placing them on tags or small gifts are other great ways to use them.

With all that being said, here is my card using this set

I used the CTMH Artistry Cartridge to cute my cake, candles and cake stand. I then took my flair and placed it on a foiled scalloped circle and mounted this piece right to my cake, using this as my sentiment for my card.

I finished off the card by adding A LOT of TCP Rock Candy Relish Mix! This card came together so nice and quickly, especially that I didn’t have to stamp anything!  Please don’t forget to stop by the shop and check out all of the AWESOMENESS that’s there!

I hope you enjoyed this card, and before I let you go I would like to mention that I am having a fun GIVEAWAY over on my Instagram page! Taniesa over at The Crafty Pickle has been so SUPER SWEET in sponsoring this giveaway! Let me tell you this couldn’t have come at a better time because her ETSY shop just got stocked!

I love you more than doughnuts!

Hello, Carrie here with a sneak peek at some New items coming soon to TheCraftyPickle shop this Friday. 

Doughnuts are a big thing around our house with the teenagers.  I recently purchased this adorable stamp from CTMH ( Close To My Heart ) Its called “Treats of Friendship”  

 I created this adorable card,  embellishing it with one of the new release flairs.  Notice the sweet sprinkle washi tape? This too will be available as part of the new release.  We are adding a ton of washi and New design flairs to the shop so be sure to pop in on Friday.

 Here is a close up look at my card. I added some glossy accents to my frosting on the doughnut for some dimension and shine.  And of course a few pickle relish sequins to finish off my card.

 See you Friday for the BIG release and Grand Re-Opening of the Pickle Shop

Here is a little sneak photo for you showing the doughnut flair and a few other yummy new flair too!

Lights, camera, create!

Hi there, its Treasa here today to share with you some cards I created using flair from the Movie Night set and the Cinema Relish Mix from The Crafty Pickle Shop.

First up  I created a popcorn gift card holder. I used the movie tickets flair from the Movie Night set and the reel from the Cinema Relish Mix.

MG1You pull the popcorn out and the gift card is tucked up inside. I also added a star from the Cinema Relish Mix as well as some Film Strip washi tape from the shop.

MG2I also wanted to create a couple cards for my Project Life album.

MG3I created the base of both cards digitally then went to town adding some items from the shop.

For the Movie Night card, i used the Popcorn flair from the Movie Night set and a reel, movie camera and stars from the Cinema Relish Mix as well as used some of the Film strip washi tape.

For the “I Reely Love You ” card, I put two reels from the Cinema Relish Mix together and added some thin ribbon to look like the film . I also used some of the stars from the Cinema Relish Mix too.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Cute Father’s Day Card

Happy Friday! It’s Joann, stopping by to share a Father’s Day card with you!
Here it is…
I kept it super simple. I started off by cutting 3 tie’s using the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge out of some CTMH White Daisy card stock with my cricut. I then stamped a coordinating tie image from the Perfect Fit-Dad Holiday stamp set with some Lagoon and Honey Ink.
Using the same stamp set I stamped “World’s Greatest” on a 2 inch circle piece of vellum with some Versa Mark and used some black embossing powder and then placed a flair from TCP Family themed flair set right in the center. I finished the card by adding some foam adhesive to the tie’s and drew a white square to add a little something.
Hope you enjoyed today’s card, and as always thanks for stopping by and have a FABULOUS day!
