Today I wanted to share a card that was a make n take at my Spring 2017 "Kickoff Catalog Celebration" event! :)  We used the FUN, yummy, New paper collection named Sugar Rush. Check it out!   

I created this card using the pattern #21 in the Make It From your Heart, volume 1 how-to-book.  I LOVE to create with the many patterns in this book (and the other 7 how-to-books we have too)!!  This is always my starting point when I begin to create! 

I love the subtle look the Sugar Rush - washi tape gave the card.  The pack comes with 3 designs...but I used one in this card creation. 

Let's check out what the Sugar Rush paper pack looks like....

When I first started thinking about creating a card, I KNEW I wanted to use the adorable stamp set that coordinated with this paper pack!  It's called...
Sugar Rush - Scrapbooking stamp set

What makes this stamp sets even MORE coordinates with Close To My Heart's Artistry Cricut cartridge!!! Do you see the stamp set images, outlined in RED??  Those shapes can be cut with our cartridge!!

Here's a FUN close up of my card....

See the "speckled" background?  I used our spray pen...which was filled with whisper re-inker & water.  

The clear "glaze" that is on top of the sprinkles is the FABULOUS Liquid Glass!!  While I use this as a glue, I often use it as a beautiful embellishment too! 

Here is a list of products used on this card...
