Cutie Pie_ Dec2014 SOTM_card
My card design came from our Make It From Your Heart #2 publication. 

I used the NEW Heartstrings paper pack that will be arriving at CTMH on December 1st!!  Wahoo!!! J 
Take a look at this GORGEOUS new paper pack!!

Cutie Pie_ Dec2014 SOTM_card_CU cupcake
These cupcake stamps needed some color, and this time I chose to color them in with our ShinHan alcohol markers.

First, I used my black pigment ink, and sprinkled clear embossing powder over top the ink & heat set it to have permanent lines prior to using my markers.

Cutie Pie_ Dec2014 SOTM_card_CU heartembossingfolderI wanted to use the NEW Heart embossing folder too!!  I can’t WAIT to use more of this embossing folder…the hearts are ADORABLE!

Would you like to guess where the arrow came from?

Well, since you asked Winking smile- the arrow is part of the Zip-Strip in this collection!!  I LOVE Zip strips, and in case you don’t know what they are….they are an extra goodie that CTMH includes with ALL their designer sheets of paper!! 

Zip-strips are a 1/2” strip at the top of all designer papers…there is a pretty design on one side, and a list of colors used in that particular paper collection on the other side!!  What a FABULOUS little extra you receive when you purchase CTMH paper packs! J

  1. And now I must emboss it too - super cute!!

  2. Great job adding that extra detail to the image.

  3. I love the clever use of the embossing folder and zip strips, I can't wait to get my hands on the hearts embossing folder now!

  4. Beautiful card! Love the layering and the stamping on the patterned paper.

  5. Great card idea, especially since it is a different color palette than I have seen so far!

  6. Love this, Krista! You created one high class cupcake! :)
