Bearly Havin' Fun

Over at Heart2Heart's blog last week they had a challenge to use the colors Amethyst and Twilight.  As well, Creative Accents Seriously Creative Challenge for January is for a theme "Let it Snow". 

I was able to meet both thee challenges criteria (yippeee savin' time on the card making!).  The great thing about CTMH is their paperpacks and the CTMH Winter Wonderland papers were perfect for this color challenge and snow theme.  I also had an older, now retired stamp set, which I hadn't used before and knew I could pear up easily with the color pallet of the papers.   Here's my card:

 The card base was made with CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge. . . I'm not really sure how I survived without this great tool before it's release in the fall!  And here's a close up of these cute little bears from CTMH "Chillin" Acrylic Stamp set:  

Aren't they just the cutest little guys?

The great thing about this card. . . is it is almost all CTMH product!  
Here's the Recipe:
Papers:  CTMH Winterwonderland Papers
Stamps:  CTMH Acrylic Stamp Chillin
Embelishments:  CTMH Pearls, Jelly Roll Glitter Pen, CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge and Copic Markers

TFL. . . and now onto this weeks Photo Inspired Heart2Heart Challenge!  Check it out and maybe you too will be inspired to create something new and exciting from your stash! 
So life has been a little busy, hence the long time between posts. Anyways, my girls were using some gentle persuasion (begging) this weekend to make some cards. So I decided to sit down and make the easel card that I had challenged my self to make, a long time ago.

It started with this cute fairy stamp that my little boy got me for Christmas from Graphicat . I colored her with Copic Markers and gave her a bit of Sparkle with CTMH Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel. Oh and the red bell is also from Graphicat .


So here is my card. Not sure if it all works together but I like it. Didn't use a layout, just let the paper guide me.

Here is the inside.

Product used were:

CTMH Roxie Paper Pack
Whimsy Stamps Silver Fairy
CTMH Wonderland Workshop On The Go Stamp set
CTMH Roxie Workshop On The Go Stamp set
Graphicat embellishments, Bell and Coffee mug and beans
Copic Markers
CTMH Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel
CTMH Ink in Cocoa and Chocolate
CTMH Black Marker

Happy Paper Crafting......

Until Next Time!
