MOJO277 and CTD225

Just couldn't wait to share a sneak peek of some of my latest favorite paper pack - Close to My Heart, Chantilly.  I'm able to purchase it early because I'm a CTMH Consultant; it will become available on February 1 to everyone.   Thought I would combine the MOJO277 and Color Throwdown challenges I used:

In addition to the Chantilly paper pack I also used:

Close to My Heart - Sunset & Chantilly Cardstock, the stamp set from the new For Always Card Workshop on the Go, Baker's Twine and Pink Glitter Gems.

Heidi Swap - Adhesive Accents (I've had for a VERY long time)

Freshly Made Sketches #67 & Whooo's Your Valentine?

Here's what I made for Freshly Made Sketches #67.  

I can hardly wait to get my hands on the new Chantilly paper pack (will debut in CTMH Spring Summer Idea Book in Feb.) so I decided to use a few of the same colors.


CTMH products used:

White Daisy, Cotton Candy & Twilight Cardstock and Ink
Cashmere Cardstock
Pink Sparkles
Whooo's Your Valentine Stamp Set (see my 12/29 post for more info)

In addition I used a M. Stewart punch, Cuttlebug embossing folders and leaf vine trim from my stash.

Mojo Monday 274 and CTD #223

I hope you're off to a good start for 2013!

This card is a result of some much needed play time last night and the Mojo Monday 274 as well as the Color Throwdown CTD #223 challenges.  Let me tell you the design teams both of these challenges did a WONDERFUL job so you definitely want to go check them out! It was also a personal challenge to make a Valentin's card using non-traditional colors.

The dotted paper is a My Mind's Eye scrap and the ribbon I salvaged off of two different thank you cards that were given to me a few years ago they just happened to be exactly the same so took the cute crinkly ribbon off each one and tied them together so I would have enough to make it around the entire card.  I actually like the knot, I think it added a little character to the inside of the card.

Other than those two items everything else was Close to My Heart, and you can click on Haunted Assortment to see where the brad is from and click on January Stamp of the Month to see the stamp set and details on how you can purchase it for only $5.
