If you have arrived from Betty's blog you are right on track.

I ADORE one of our current paper packs named True Love.  The colors are "mine" :) and I love the stripes included in these patterns too!  I will be sharing 2 cards with you today...To get started....let's take a look at these two cards below. 

I think one of the "hardest" things in any coming up with the pattern or design.  Well I have to say...."Never Fear.....Close to My Heart is here!" :)  

I LOVE the many ways CTMH makes this deciding faster, simpler, easier!!  
Today's cards, were card designs from a current Workshops Your Way (WYW) cardmaking kit. 

Take a look at the original card ...and how CTMH art department designed it...

I took CTMH's original design...and just turned my pieces around to create a different look! 
Do you see the similarities of their my 2 cards??? 

I love, LOVE our WYW kits!!! Another perk to these card kits (besides getting NEW card patterns) is the EXCLUSIVE stamp set that is included in this kit!!

Take a look at the "Thinking of You" (True Love) Cardmaking WYW kit....

This stamp set is a GREAT one, that will be used again and again.

Let's take a few close up looks. ;) 

I used the "splatter" re-inker technique to get the eggplant colored dots in the background. 
How FUN to create your own background...and get a different design each and every time!! :) 

The flowers were stamped in Eggplant ink, and then colored in with our Sugarplum Shimmer pretty!! 

I also decided to add gold Shimmer Trim to this card....I love a little sparkle & shine! 

Here's a close up look at the second card design....

I colored the flowers, the same way as I did for the first one.  
For that adorable tissue box...I stamped the tissue box onto the card base....and then stamped it again onto Sugarplum Cardstock (which is included in the kit) and cut out the box part.  

This tissue box, comes from the NEW "Get Well Soon" stamp set....How cute!! 

The Eggplant colored scalloped border, comes from the EXCLUSIVE stamp set included in the Workshops Your Way cardmaking kit!! 

That's all for today....thanks for stopping by, and I hope you were inspired to go CREATE something on your own! :) 

Now it’s time to Hop on over to Joyce's Blog and see what BEAUTIFUL, crafty item she has to share with us today! :) 

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. Love them! I love the touches of sequins and glitter paper. You're going to make me get that "Get Well Soon" stamp set now!

  2. Wonderful cards, Krista! I love how you adapted the WYW card sketches. Your Get Well card is really adorable with that tissue box--that stamp set is now moving to my next order list.
