Creative Challenge

I’m doing a creative challenge in my customer FB group. You’ll want to hop in and play because you could win a $25.00 shopping spree (No consultants please.) I was inspired to create these card by my upline. I made them with the Hawthorn papers, the Hawthorn Scrapbooking Stamp Set and Thin Cut Dies, Share the Season Binder Clip Label Thin Cut, along with several of the new ink pad colors. The leaves are done with the “Rock and Roll” technique where you use a lighter ink color and then roll the edges of the stamp in a darker color. Use several shimmer brushes to create the splattered look.

Here’s the details:

*Create your own version which can be the same as mine or different.
*Use 90% CTMH products as this is my CTMH Special Peeps group.
*You have all month to create.
*I’ll create an album you can add them to.
*When you post, put the add #septcardchallenge
*You can enter up to 3 times/month.
*The winner will be announced in the first week of the following month.
*You will win a $25.00 CTMH Hostess Credit shopping spree on your next order!!

Share The Joy with some Bear Hugs!

I combined two of the specials this month – Share The Joy and Bear Hugs – to create this fun card. The Share The Joy bundle is too much fun and I can’t stop creating with it!

Here’s some quick instructions:

  • Cut the base from Into The Wild background and texture (B&T) paper.
  • Cut the top panel out of Sapphire card stock with the die.
  • Use different circles from previous top panel cuts to fill in the circles.
  • Cut the pennants out from Slate, Into The Wild B&T, and White Daisy.
  • Stamp the bear in Espresso ink and the sentiment on the White Daisy pennant, in Archival Black Ink.
  • Use your journaling pen to do the stitching on the sentiment pennant.
  • Layer the pennants on.
  • Fussy cut the bear and use 3D foam tape to adhere.
  • Add embellishments. I used left over Bronze sequins which are in the Clearance Section! Woot!

Did you know that if you get the Share the Joy Bundle for $29.95 with Into the Wild Paper Pack for $10.95, that’s $50 in product? You can get the Stamp of the Month Bear Hugs for $5.00!! Best of all, you’ll get two kits of projects FREE next month! =)
