Oh---what a BEAUTIFUL, new Catalog!! 
I decided to create a card today, with possibly my FAVORITE Stamp & Thin Cut set in this book...let's take a look at my cards & then I'll explain WHY it's my favorite. 😉 

This card design comes from the Hillside Cottage Cardmaking Workshop kit
The card on the left is Card Design #3 in the workshop. 
The card on the right is my Krista's Crafty "changed up" version of this card design!😊

Did you know❓❓
Many of our Cardmaking Workshop kits at Close To My Heart, INCLUDE an Exclusive stamp & Thin Cut set!!  So yes...this stamp set IS ONLY available with the purchase of this kit----BUT---it's so worth it! 😉

Let's take a closer look! 😍

I ADORE what CTMH has done in this new catalog with a few of the stamp sets. 
They have created stamp sets where you can stamp BEAUTIFUL layered floral clusters, and you will not have to cut out the entire grouping by hand!😮
CTMH has created a Thin Cut (metal die) to cut out the finished shape! 
All we need to do is look at the enclosed package insert for ideas on how we'd like to stamp our flowers! 💗

Here's a Close-up look at one of these flower clusters....

How BEAUTIFUL is this?!?! 

I used 3 ink colors ---Paprika, Flamingo & New England Ivy.  
To get the two tones of pinks...I just "stamped off" my flower on scrap paper before applying it a 2nd time as my flower on the cut piece.  This is called 2nd Generation stamping.

The "shading" behind the flowers, is the Tattered Rose Distress Oxide ink! Isn't it neat how it "highlights" the cluster of flowers?!

My FAVORITE thin cut in this set---is the STITCHED LINE! I ADORE this thin cut & love the ways it can be used!! 
Can you see WHERE I used this stitched die on this card?  😉

I am ALWAYS amazed at what such a "small" touch can do to the beauty of the project!! 

I also chose to add some Black Shimmer Trim to "my" changed up card as well.  I love the touch of glitter & shine it brings to this card!

  1. These are very cute - love the mix of pink and paprika!

  2. I love these cards and how you changed it up. I ordered this set and can't wait to play with it because of how you can stamp the image with out masking or needing to fussy cut to get it how you want it.

  3. I love your cards! So cute and colorful.

  4. These cards are so pretty. I love how the stamp set is designed.

  5. Your cards are so beautiful. I love everything about them!

  6. Oh my, love this card set! I will have to add it to my list. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Can't wait to create with this kit.

  8. Beautiful cards, I love them all!

  9. Love, love, love, love, LOVE!!!! And thanks for the changed up version of this card kit. I was struggling to come up with new ideas because I love the given versions so much. Nice problem to have, I guess. :)


Thanks for taking time to make a comment!
Blessings to you for a BEAUTIFUL day! :)
