Thankful Slimline

Hey There!

I haven’t done many slimline cards, but they are so fun and cute I’ll need to do more!

This card uses the CTMH September Stamp of the Month, Grateful for this Life, along with paper and stamps from the current seasonal catalog. See the end of this post for a project list if you are interested in duplicating this card!

I used the same technique that I used on THIS page to color the word “Thankful”. I used my MISTI tool to put color on just part of the stamp and stamp on the paper. Then I added another color and stamped again. Each time I wiped the ink off the stamp in places I didn’t want that color to be.

I hope you are enjoying these autumn themed projects as much as I am!

Autumn Theme Layout

Hey There!

I’m still enjoying these fall stamps from Close To My Heart! For this page I used the title from the September Stamp of the month, Grateful for the Life.

The pumpkins and leaves are from the Autumn is Calling and Pumpkin Spice Cardmaking stamps. I got my color inspiration from both the Pumpkin Spice collection and obviously my sister’s family portrait. This picture was perfect with the colors I had in mind!

The title, Grateful, was created using my MISTI stamping tool. It allowed me to add the different colors on the word exactly where I wanted them. I applied the ink to the stamps and used a paper towel to remove ink from where I’d didn’t want that color to be. I’m so happy with how it turned out!

Check out the other layouts I’ve created using these papers, stamps and colors!

Grateful For This Life Album

Hey There!

I wanted to share the scrapbooking pages I have been working on! I used the prompts on the CTMH September Stamp of the Month, Grateful for this Life to create a 6×8 album. This stamp set is only available through September. Also, you can get it for $5 with a qualifying order! Even better, as one of my VIP’s, you could get it free! Visit my site for details about the VIP program.

I also used the Pumpkin Spice paper collection, with coordinating stamps and colors. Scroll down to the end for the full list of supplies.

I am IN LOVE with the color combinations used in this paper collection. That deep blue, called Harbor, which is brand new combined with the beautiful pinks is just perfect.

Each two page layout was created using a prompt from the SOTM set. I loved having these to help me reflect on what things I am grateful for. As a bonus, it helped me document my fall 2020, which I hadn’t done yet!

Grateful For This Life

Hey There!

It is finally here! The new annual Close To My Heart core catalog and the Sep/Oct catalog are available to order from!!

I am very much in love with the September stamp of the month that I have featured in this card. Not only does it make a cute card, but it has great prompts to make me reflect on being thankful. I’ve got a project I’m working on showcasing that. You’ll be seeing that in a few days 🙂

For this card I also used two new fall themed stamps and two of the new colors! I’m thrilled with all the new colors, they’re amazing. The new colors I used were Papaya and Shortbread, but I also used Paprika, which is a previous color that goes beautifully with Papaya.

There isn’t any patterned paper or color card stock on this card. Stamped directly on to the card base with the words, and stamped onto White Daisy card stock for the pumpkin, gourd and leaves from Autumn is Calling and Pumpkin Spice- Cardmaking Stamp sets

It is a little hard to see in the picture, but I used a shimmer brush to add some glam to the pumpkin, gourd and leaves. I can’t enough of the shimmer brushes!
