Here we go!

We have some BEAUTIFUL, new papers in the NEW Seasonal Expressions 1 (SE1) book & today I chose to use the Make Waves paper collection in this card.  

Take a look....

I loved the color combo of the Make Waves paper collection, and chose to use this with TWO new stamp sets that are in the SE1 book too!!
I used the Gimme Some Sugar - Scrapbooking stamp set & the NEW Notes of Inspiration stamp....take a look at these FUN stamp sets!! 


My focus on creating this card was to use the NEW Thin Cuts- Basic Circle Tags.  Can you see where I used it on this card design? 

As I cut the Circle Tag from Bashful Glitter Paper...I realized I needed a circle mat for the inside of the circle to stamp the sentiment on.  Imagine MY DELIGHT when I learned that our Basic Circle Shape Thin Cuts fit PERFECTLY inside!! Yay!! 

 For my card design, I pulled out another BRAND NEW PRODUCT (one that I've been waiting to be released for a while!) ...the Make It From Your Heart, vol 4 CARDMAKING How-To-Book!! Wahoo!!  

I LOVE this new book & while there are fabulous card sketches inside - CTMH has made it even BETTER with the tips & techniques scattered throughout this book too!!  It's perfect! :) 

I used the Pansy Pigment ink, clear embossing powder & my heat tool  to make the wording "pop". :)  AND...do you see one more FUN, BEAUTIFUL, NEW product I used??

We now have a BASHFUL Shimmer Brush!!!!!  WAHOOOO!!!!

Notice the sparkle on the flower...and I colored the background of the word "Sparkly" with the Bashful Shimmer Brush too!! What FUN!!
