Everything Glitters is Gold



What I love most about owning the Cricut Machine is the fact the CTMH has designed some of the most amazing cartridges with wonderful images to create my own embellishments.  Today is another post for Heather Flaherty, CTMH Consultant.  If ever you find that you have fell in love with anything that I have used on my project and want to make a purchase, hop on over to I Heart Stamping to place your order


For my card today I used the Artbooking Cartridge and cut the word joy from page 74, 4 times at 7 inches and glued each layer together to make a chunky word.  The last layer before gluing it I ran it through the Xyron machine and sprinkled it with Gold glitter.... Taking my 2 inch circle punch I made a shaker card, I punched the circle off to the left and behind it I used a tiny picture pocket and put some glitter inside and taped it in place.  Using foam tape I popped up the panel to give it the full shaker look.

I hope that you have been inspired into "creating something handmade" and until next time spend some time shopping in the shop where you to can purchase this cartridge to have in your library...

Christmas Polar Tag

   
 Hi everyone! Glad you're joining me for my weekly post here at Paper Crafter Anonymous.  If you ever have questions about my projects or want specific ideas on a stamp set.  Just give any of the Design Team a holler and we'd be happy to help.

     I know we haven't hit Thanksgiving yet, but I've already started thinking about Christmas crafts...have you?    

     I started with making some tags. I used the October Stamp of the Month set...Home for the Holidays.  You can pair this set with the Art Philosophy cartridge and it would cut all the tags out for you in their shapes.  I went a different route though and cut the frame square so I could pop the polar bear up with dots to give him some dimension.
  Add a matching backing for stability - some twine for attaching to your package and you're done in a snap.  

     One tip on this adorable polar bear though...use a light touch when you ink the stamp.  His details are so small that if I put to much pressure on the pad his scarf, and background, were just a colored blog.  

      Until next week...Keep Scrapping!

CTMH Treat Bags with Glittered Bows


Bows and pretty paper...oh and of course glitter.  Welcome to another Glittered Roses blog post for Paper Crafter Anonymous. If at any time you see products that I have used and you would like to order please click the link, Heather will get your products delivered to your door step.


The pattern paper I used was Chalk It Up (7148B) and I used matching solids to match.  I ran the largest bow through my Xyron to add glitter.


For this project I used the Artiste cartridge.  The card is on page 78, cut with the Fit to Page feature.  Additionally, I cut the bows at 1 and 1  1/2 inch layering them on top of each other securing it with a brad.






The sentiment came from For a Friend clear stamps set.  The fun thing about this card is that it folds in 2 places, I added an additional score line and added a notch so that I could secure the flap.

I hope that you have been inspired into "creating something handmade" , the holidays are fast approaching so make sure and make CTMH apart of your gift giving source.

Feminine Birthday Card

     
Happy Friday everyone - Lyne here.  Since I did a male birthday card for you last week, I thought this week I would share a birthday card for the ladies.
     



I pulled out a sketch from my pinterest stash to get me started.  The sketch is from Sweet & Sassy stamps and it called for me to use it right away.  
  
    I pulled out one of Close To My Heart Brushed papers and got right to work.  I chose the black from the flower details for my matting to set the two papers apart.  A black ribbon, a few gems and I was good to go.  The sentiment stamp is from a retired Close to My Heart set called You are my Happy.
15 minutes from start to finish and I had a beautiful card.  





    Until next time...Keep Scrappin!
