Bookmark/Card

Hi TCP friends!! It’s Stephanie from Bits & Pieces (& Scraps) here today to share my latest project using The Crafty Pickle flair & CTMH products. I made a card that could be given for many different occasions-birthday, congratulations, thank you, etc.

enjoy card

I used the “I Love Books” flair button, some washi tape and self-adhesive sequins, all from The Crafty Pickle shop.

I love to read! Unfortunately, my kids do not love it that much and I am constantly trying to entice them into reading. I thought this card might do the trick!

I slipped in a little bookmark that can be pulled out of the top of the card & used when reading. I also thought it would be nice to give the card with a bookstore gift card inside!

Happy Saterday, thank you so much for stopping by!!

Today I am sharing a Christmas card I made using the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and a coordinating stamp set.

This cartridge collection is fabulous and if you haven’t seen the cuts this cartridge has, click here to take a look!
And then here is a link to her blog:

I used the cartridge to cut a frame (pg. 62) and used the Perfect Fit- Frames Flair stamp set to stamp my image on the frame with some Cranberry Ink. I then cut the tree (pg. 31) and stamped my image with the coordinating stamp set that comes with the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge bundle with some Pear Ink.

This cartridge has some fun borders that you can cut out, I took the border on page 63 and cut it out using some fun CTMH Silver Glitter cardstock. Using the same stamp set as my tree, I stamped my sentiment on some vellum with some StazOn. I finished my card by adding some foam adhesive to my images and some TCP Winter Sequins Mix.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

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!

Baby Shower Favor

Baby Shower Favor

Hi Joann here today, thanks for joining me!

Today I am sharing a cute little baby shower favor that I made using the CTMH Artiste Cartridge!

Isn’t this box adorable and wouldn’t it also be great as an Easter Box to fill with treats for kids?!?!  To decorate my box I cut a 1 3/4 circle stamped an image using the CTMH-Holiday Tags stamp set and customized it with the due date using YES Months set for my month and finished it off with some scattered sequins.

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!

Using the CTMH Artiste cartridge

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!

30 Day Color Challenge: Day 1 (officially)

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.

30 day marker challenge from TheDailyMarker.com

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.

choose happyyourownkindofwonderfulHere 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!

Worlds Greatest Brother

Hi Crafty Friends!

  Today we have a card for you by our fabulous DT member, Joann! She has a great card using both CTMH product and TCP flair! Take a look.

Hi, thanks for stopping by today! I am sharing with you another masculine card. A quick tip that I found was, pick your color combo out first and you’ll find out that the card will come together quite quickly.

I started off with a dotted stencil and some CTMH Lagoon ink to created a faded corner background. I cut the label using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge and stamped the image with a coordinating stamp set Perfect fit- Frames Flair with some CTMH Slate Ink,
I also used the stamp set Perfect fit- Dad Holiday to stamp the “World’s Greatest” on some vellum, finished the card off by cutting a few banner shape pieces, some yellow orange twine and of course some TCP Family Themed Flair!
Hope you enjoyed today’s card and as always thanks for stopping by!!

CTMH Lifting Spirits: One Stamp Set. Two Looks.

Hi Crafty Friends!

Today we have something special for you. Design team member, Carrie Bryant, and myself have teamed up to bring you two looks with the CTMH stamp set “Lifting Spirits”.

Here is a photo of the stamp set:

Lifting Spirits by CTMH @thecraftypickle.com

I had a lot of fun creating with this stamp set. It is one of my favorites ever since it showed up as a seasonal set last year. It is now in our annual expressions catalog for $13.95. Not only can you use the sentiments included in the set but there are other sentiments like “Happy Birthday” for example, that would look great in the banner as well.

I wanted to create a one layer card but still show some dimension as well. I chose to use alcohol markers as my main medium and used a bit of ink on the edges.

Here is my finished card

CTMH Lifting Spirits card by Taniesa@TheCraftyPickle.com

I started by stamping out the images and sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the clouds, airplane, banner, and background all with alcohol markers. I used the CTMH Touch Twin markers and for extra shading used a few Copic markers as well.

Once everything was dry I took a Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen and a Sakura Gelly roll clear glitter pen and added glitter accents. I used the Sakura pen where I wanted a high amount of shine (around the lines mostly) and the Wink of Stella as a filler.

For the final touch I used CTMH Liquid Glass to cover the body of the airplane to make it all shiny. Once completely dry, I mounted the panel on printed paper and then on a note card. You can kind of see the shiny on the airplane in the photo above.

I had a lot of fun making this card. I think this is one of my most favorite CTMH sets so far.

Here is a little peek at Carrie’s card, you will need to visit her blog HERE to see more photos as well as a walk-though on  how she created her card.
