Scripty & Sparkly Die Cut Thanks Card

Hi there,
I made this card to send to my friend Stephanie a few months ago. The paper is retired now, but still available while supplies last! I used two packs - Swan Lake and Jeepers Creepers. I love mixing paper collections :)

I used a Thin Cut die for the "thanks" sentiment. And it's on sale for just a couple more days for 25% off! It comes as a set with "Hello," and both die cuts are sized perfectly for cards. Shop Die Cuts >


See that lovely sparkle on the die cut? It's from the Shimmer brush in clear. I am obsessed with it! It's very similar to the Wink of Stella shimmer brush if you're familiar with that, but CTMH's is less expensive and has more product in it! Plus it comes in gold and clear (like silver). The gold is a clear base with gold shimmer, whereas the Wink of Stella is a gold base and gold shimmer. I like CTMH's better :)

While this seasonal paper is retired now, it's still available while supplies last. So if you like it, you'd better grab it! There are matching Complements (cardstock stickers), washi, etc as well! Shop While Supplies Last >

Be sure to also check out the Clearance Page. (Not to be confused with While Supplies Last.) The clearance section has incredible deals and really cute stuff at up to 80% off! Shop Clearance >

Some Kinda Wonderful 3x3 Die-Cut & Copic Cards

Hello!
I am on a roll with this blogging thing lately! I have some bright and cheery cards to share today. I played around with the Some Kinda Wonderful paper and Thin Cuts/stamp set bundle (which is 25% off only for a few more days!). This stamp set is SERIOUSLY CUTE! It was the first thing I had to have when the current catalog came out.
Don't you love this bird? I'm not the best Copic colorer but it was fun to color him in. You can do all sorts of color combos for him. I used Memento black ink so that the alcohol in the Copics didn't make the image smear.

You have to check out the adorable fox and turtle that come in the set, too. The word bubble is a stamp and die also, and there are a couple of sentiments sized to perfectly fit in it, as well as a few larger sentiments. The stamp set picture is below or check it out on my website.
I added some splatters of black acrylic paint to the card base. It's hard to tell because most of it is covered up, but there are some cute dots peeking out on the sides. They are also on the back. Makes for a fun added detail.

TIP: Create 8 splattered card bases from one sheet of cardstock! Add a few drops of water to some acrylic paint in a small jar. Use a paint brush to splatter an entire 12"x12" sheet of white carstock. Let dry. Cut into (8) 3"x6" card bases. Fold each in half for a 3"x3" card.

Here are more Some Kinda Wonderful cards that the CTMH Art Department created with this paper and stamp set...

Super Sparkly Watercolor & Die Cuts Card + Video Tutorial

Hello!
Today I have a super cute and super sparkly card to share that my CTMH upline, Kay Pekin sent to me. I thought it was so adorable I just had to share it with you!

She used two die cuts sets on this card, Hello & Thanks is one set (you get 2 dies perfectly sized for cards!) and the Hearts Thin Cuts set comes with a small, medium and large heart. The heart dies do double duty because you get the heart outline and the inside of the heart both from one die! She cut the dies out using glitter paper in white, red, and gold. And guess what? Dies are 25% off this month! The hearts are only $11.21 right now and Hello & Thanks is only $8.96...such a good deal! Shop now >

It looks like Kay used the medium flat waterbrush to paint the red background with watercolor paint, and then she brushed some gold shimmer over it with the gold shimmer brush. I love the subtle sparkle that it adds, it's so pretty. You can really see it in the photo below.

If you've never used Thin Cuts, check out my video tutorial on how to use them with the Cuttlebug machine.

Mojo Monday Challenge #489: Thank You Card

Hello, crafty friends,

I haven't participated in the Mojo Monday sketch for a while, and I was inspired by this week's sketch, so I decided to! I used a new paper pad that I recently got: Heidi Swapp's Favorite Things. I was really drawn to the bright colors with black and white and love how the mix of paper turned out in the card.

The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch and I colored over them with sparkle from CTMH's gold shimmer brush. It's really hard to capture in a photo but you can kind of see it. It's very lovely and sparkly in person.

The heart die cut is from CTMH's Hearts Thin Cuts and is 25% off this month...you have a few more days to take advantage of the Thin Cuts Sale! There are 3 sizes of hearts and it cuts the outer border and inside of the heart, so you get 2 usable cuts from one die! Shop all Thin Cuts >

This particular Thank You stamp from CTMH is retired, but there's another lovely Thank you set HERE.

SPECIALS END MARCH 31
  • All of Close to my Heart's Thin Cuts die cuts are 25% off this month. The Hearts Thin Cut set I used in this card is only $11.21 right now! Watch CTMH's Thin Cuts video to see more great ideas for using these dies. Shop Thin Cuts >
