Here we go!

Today, I created these cards as a make n take at my recent "Kickoff Catalog Celebration" event.     

So...why am I showing you 3 cards?  Because each card is a tad bit - let's take a closer look at these goodies.  

OR - if you'd like to move along on the hop - head on over to Donna's  Blog to see her amazing work!
DETAILS on the cards above.....

The stamp sets I used on these cards are the August Stamp of the Month(SOTM) - Purr-fect halloween AND I used all THREE stamp sets that are included in the NEW Flower Market cricut bundle!!!  Check out these LOVELY, exclusive stamp sets!

I also wanted to incorporate something we learned at Convention.  We were reminded again, that with ANY ribbon, sequin, button, etc....that is WHITE - it can be colored with our ShinHan alcohol markers!!!!  

So here is the collection of the Enchantment Ribbon pack that I used on the card.  I ADORE our new packs of ribbon!!!  This pack consists of 4 rolls of ribbon, 1 roll of baker's twine and they all have 3 yds each.  They coordinate with our NEW Enchantment Fundamentals & Complements. 

Do you SEE the dotted ribbon in this pack?

Yup - you got it....I COLORED the BACKSIDE of my white dotted ribbon with the ShinHan alcohol markers.  I used the "Barely Beige" & "Sap Green" to get a peach ribbon & a green dotted ribbon!!! 

The striped ribbon (shown on the middle card above) is one of the "original" ribbons in the pack shown above. 

If you look at the EMBOSSED background on the card above &'ll also notice we have NEW 5x7 Embossing Folders!!!  

The 4 new designs are BEAUTIFUL, and you can see 2 of the designs I used in these cards - the Chevron & Wood Slats.  

Next, let's take a close up look of the acorns that were cut on with the NEW Flower Market Cricut Collection.  Oh MY!!!  Close To My Heart has done it AGAIN!!!!  

It amazes me how they can CONTINUE to come out with AMAZING cartridges that include 700 designs on them!!!  Wahoo!!!  And if you think that this cartridge is just "flowers" as per it's may want to rethink that opinion. :)  

CLICK HERE to see the shape index of the cuts on this cartridge - we are patiently awaiting Cricut to upload the new handbook for this Cricut collection. 

How did I use the "background stamps" you see them?  I stamped designs on my 2 acorns!!  Another fabulous way to use background stamps!! 

I hope you enjoyed these cards , and now it's time to "Hop" on over to Donna's  Blog to see her amazing work!
