Now, I promised myself that I would delve into my stash more this year and not limit my creativity to ONLY Close to My Heart products. Although I do confess that would be all too easy to do because I love them all! But you see, I had an extensive scrapping
This card is the perfect example. CARDS Blog is having a challenge that ends today. We are to use the color palette chartreuse, aqua, and light grey as inspiration for a card. Well, I have JUST the paper to do that! It just happens to be from *whispers* Creative Memories. Gasp! How have I never used this gorgeous paper from the Reflections Collection? I bought it because I LOVED the colors, and it just so happens that I don't really have these exact colors in my CTMH stash. What I did have from CTMH, though, are some fabulous NEW embellishments and a sentiment to add to it! ;)
Such a great color combo to transition into the part of winter AFTER Christmas. I am a big fan of grey, so this was a super-fun card for me to design. There is a grey sparkle up in the chartreuse flower. See it? Then I chose to highlight one of our BRAND NEW My Acrylix Stamp Sets, C1539 Scrapbook Statements--Poets. Isn't the sentiment beautiful? It can be yours starting February 1st!
Next up, I used some baker's twine to add some bling. This sparkly button is from the BRAND NEW Button Assortment in Black! It is a beautiful slate color with glitter along the rim. I love these, let me tell you!
One of our favorite new products is our Slate Washi Tape! Yes! You heard me right--beginning on Feb. 1st, Close to My Heart finally has washi! It looks a tad brown because of the green background paper, but I assure you it is our gorgeous slate grey color. :) Getting excited yet? I completely understand!
