August Stamp of the Month

This was the 3x6 card I made for the August Stamp of the Month exchange.

I used the Florentine paper pack from the CTMH Spring/Summer Idea Book.  It is still available in the Autumn/Winter IB. (PG 71) The small flowers are cut with the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (Z1790)

New CTMH papers

This week I got my bag of CTMH goodies; cards & layouts created with the new CTMH papers and products for the Autumn/Winter IdeaBook Exchange facilitated by Julie Reynolds.  I  especially like the colors of the Clementine paper pack and used Clementine to create this Cricut Card. 

I made a total of 41 cards for the exchange.  The Cricut makes it easy with the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge (Z1790).  I cut 738 total pieces including the card, 7 hearts for each card (folded in half to create the petals see page 49 in the CTMH IB), under the petals is a Saddle Brown cardstock daisy (1-3/4 inch)  inked and layered on a 2 inch B&T daisy.  Then there are also five 3/4 inch flowers and one ity-bity 1/4 inch flower  I also added a small chocolate button from the Basic Assortment (Z1358), one 3/4 inch Crème Brulee Paradise Flower (Z1710),  Almond Glitz Glitter Gel (Z1769), Brown and Tan Sparkles (Z1753).   The "Thinking of You" sentiment is from the D sized stamp set "Casual Expressions" (D1525).  The Crème Brulee Flower and 5 Cricut cut flowers were spritzed with a mixture of Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint (Z1039), Sorbet Re-inker (Z2264), and water. A Natural Hemp bow (Z280)  was placed on top of the Crème Brulee Flower.  The hemp was split into three strands and a bow was made with two of the smaller strands.
