1. The stamp set
I used an EXCLUSIVE stamp set only available for those who “host a party” with CTMH.
AND…the best part - it’s ONLY $8!!!
Do I really have to host a party to get this set?J
Nope J…. ANYONE, who places a $150 order
(individually or with a few friends) is a HOSTESS!!

Contact your CTMH consultant for ALL the details!!J

2. Did you use Christmas Paper for this card? 
No!!  This is the FUN PART!!!J
You can turn ANY paper pack into “your” paper pack!! 

This is CTMH’s Confetti Wishes paper pack…and I incorporated our NEW purple glitter paper to change the look & be able to use it for my Christmas Card!

3. Dry Embossing - Sing Glory_christmas card day 2014_angel cuDid you notice the bottom of this card? 

I ran the Pacifica colored cardstock through the Cuttlebug using our dot 5x7 embossing folder.

When it was finished…I swiped the raised dots over my Whisper ink pad.

4. Sparkles - Yes - I love to add a bit of bling!  J
Sing Glory_christmas card day 2014_holly_cuThe bitty sparkles add a special touch to the angel….but take a look at the purple sparkles that I used for my holly berries.

CTMH does not carry purple sparkles, so…I took our ShinHan Alcohol markers & COLORED the clear sparkles & made them purple!!

The opportunities are endless - color sequins, enamel stars, sparkles…alcohol markers do not come off & are a permanent color!!

May you be INSPIRED & head to your creating area to create some of your OWN CRAFTY goodies!! J

Now it’s time to Hop on over to my friend  Stephanie Huber’s blog to check out what beautiful, crafty item she has to share with us! J 

Happy Hopping and we’ll see you on the 9th next month, when the Joyful Stars team members will be sharing more artwork using Close To My Heart products!    

Blessings to you for BEAUTIFUL day!!!

  1. WOW Krista! What a fabulous Christmas Card with that paper. Makes me want to run downstairs and make one!!! *Ü*

  2. Such a beautiful card. Thank you for the hint about coloring the sparkles with the ShinHan markers!

  3. What fabulous ideas you've shared, Krista! I love that you didn't use Christmas paper. All of the little extra things you added to the card are awesome too! Great tips for anyone. Coloring sparkles and pearls with alcohol markers is one of my favorite things to do! Great job :-)

  4. I love the fact that you used the Confetti Wishes paper packet to create this beautiful card. Using our new markers to be able to color some of our embellishments has really opened up so many possibilities.

  5. Beautiful card. Thanks for the tip on altering the paper to suit your needs!

  6. Love that you went outside of the box for the christmas card using confetti wishes!

  7. Wow - great Christmas cards using Confetti paper. You are so creative!
