Now, I wanted to show you useful these kits are.  Once you’ve created the cards which are in the kit, you can take the directions and more more!  On the Card Reference guide which you use for assembling the cards (they are cut and ready to stamp/thin cut/assemble), you’ll seen under the pictures “Card Recipe”.  The dimensions of each piece provided for you.  This makes is very easy to recreate these cards, either using the same stamp set or another one.  I’ve created two different shaker card series.  I did a FB Live on the first one on Sunday.   The first picture is a collage of the 6 cards I made using the Hello Pumpkin Paper Pack and the new thin cut shaker supplies we offer!

The Brew Crew

The Brew Crew

Wow…Here are some fun cards with a Design Space file for a coffee shaped card that I made over 2 years ago and used many times over.  I’ve included the DS file for you.  There were several different Pins and posts from the Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop that inspired this creative set of cards.  All the papers used are from CTMH.  The stamps are retired CTMH stamps, with the exception of the “Haunted Cup” card which features “Cats and Bats Cardmaking Stamp set and dies.” The sentiment about “Pumpkin Spice” is from Sugar Pea Designs.

SG (my daughter) gave names to each of the Brew Crew cards.  I had wanted all the cards to be “brew” cards but she felt strongly that the Cat card needed to be “Cat Coffee” , not “Cat’s Brew”.

Scary Steampunk, not so scary!

Scary Steampunk is not so scary!  This card is made with the Steampunk Scoundrel’s set B1503 , Tasty Terrors D1669, and Nevermore papers:

Nevermore Card 2 wm

I love that you can cut the tag out of the Cricut Artfully Sent Z3168.  It looks way better than if I had hand cut it!

Nevermore Card 2a wm

See the cute paper clip and stars?  Those are from the new Fundimental Gold Assortment, Z3105!!  Super cute and you can do a lot with this.  There are several colors available.

Gold FundamentalsThe stars and rest of the shapes are gold glitter for the bling!!

Nevermore Card 2c wm

I used the Confetti Stars embossing folder to create the background and then sanded it for the stars to show up on the Eggplant panel.  Fast and easy to do.  I used a little foam tape to help curl up the wings of the bat for some 3D effect as well as some Wink of Stella for to add the shimmer.

Nevermore Card2b wm

This card was made from leftover scraps from the Nevermore paper pack.  Here are the supplies used, outside of your basics: Confetti Stars embossing folder01587fc4-fae2-418b-9911-cf9e2a3e6964

Steampunk ScoundrelsHave a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Nevermore Treat Bag

Here’s a treat bag that I made with the Nevermore paper as part of the WOTG bit.

Nevermore Bag wm

All of part of this are cut from various Cricut that are exclusive to CTMH – Artiste and Artistry. Don’t you just love this cute little skeleton?

Nevermore Bag 3 wm

I used the Gold Fundamentals hearts from the Fundamental collection.  I think adding the gold hearts take the scary out and makes the bag sweet and fun!

Nevermore Bag 2 wm

The tag is cut from the Cricut and stamped:

Creepy Treats

The stamp set used is “Tasty Terrors” D1669.  It’s a fun set for making tags for various bags and boxes.  I used a silver gel pen to color in my spider and some small black sequins for eyes.  01587fc4-fae2-418b-9911-cf9e2a3e6964
