The wonderful news is that there will be a brand new DT announced later this week which we are all patiently (of course) waiting for...NOT!!! About as patiently as I am waiting for the new Autumn/Winter Idea Book that is revealed at convention tomorrow!!!! YES! You heard me right...tomorrow, the CTMH consultants at convention get to see all the new products and goodies in the super-secret new cattie!!!! Oh the suspense is crazy-intense, so I had to take a break from VBS planning this week and squeeze in some time for crafting to take my mind off of it...yeah right! ;)
The last challenge at H2H this month is to use our favorite CTMH color in a project! HOW AWESOME is that? NOT at all, would be the annoying answer, lol...as I see repeated in the DT's blog posts, we seem to love ALL colors equally, lol, so choosing just one is
Ok, you cannot see all the great details without more pics! You really need to see these at more than one angle...This first card features my favorite CTMH purple and blue--Smokey Plum and Crystal Blue! I added some black shimmer trim for my sparkle. ;) The edge of the card is trimmed with a Martha Stewart Edge Punch.
Inside the card, I used the Chantilly Cardmaking WOTG My Acrylix set to stamp the two little banners that say, "Happy Birthday."
All of these card variations feature one of my FAVORITE CTMH images ever, and one of my FAVORITE people gave it to me! It is a retired My Acrylix set called Find Your Style. This butterfly image is simply gorgeous.
This next card shows off my two favorite warm tones from Close to My Heart, Hollyhock and Buttercup. What can I say, I like syllables! ;)
Do you alter your stamps? I have done this to MANY! I love this font and the sentiment of this one from Card Chatter--Sympathy, but I certainly didn't need the period at the end. Easy solution--I chopped it off!
Here it is on the inside of the card...
Finally, my most favorite two colors from CTMH (I think) right now...Lagoon and Sweet Leaf!
I really LOVE the butterfly in these two colors! I need to use this combo more often!
Another sentiment from Card Chatter--Sympathy finishes it off.
So, there you have it, my most favorite Close to My Heart Colors (of the moment.) Which of my combos do you like the best? What is your favorite CTMH color? What's wrong? Can't pick just one, you say? JOIN the CLUB!!! lol...
