For my card, I decided to use the circle spin card (Z1866). I used Frosted paper, on the
outside of the card and on the inside, but the opposite side. I inked the edges of the papers with Champagne ink (Z2174), as well as the sentiment. It's hard to see, but on the "i" in bright, there is a bitty bling (z1263). The lantern is stamped in black (Z2105) and the candle
light is colored with a color pencil.

Sorry for the way the picture is. I could not find my camera, so I used my cell phone to take the pic.

Supply list:
Frosted paper pack: X7175B
Circle spin card: Z1866

For my "O" I chose the Owl. There is an owl on the CTMH cricut cartridge, and I have been wanting
to make something with him for the longest time, and this was the perfect opportunity! I cut the back round out in chocolate card stock, and the feathers and face out with cashmere. the sentiment is from
a CTMH stamp set that is retired, and the sentiment is stamped in olive. The back round paper is also CTMH, from the retired paper pack Florentine.

Do you ever have those days where your crafty idea sounds FABULOUS in your head, but when you go to implement the idea, it just does not work? Well, for me that happened with this project. The project I had intended to show you, just did not turn out, so I decided to make something from artiste that was kinda fun and cute. I cut this 3D object from letter b in Artiste. I was going too add embellishments, but I kinda liked they way it turned out :)

Sweet Life Blog hop






Welcome to our July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month's stamp from Close to My Heart is "Sweet Life" and is available exclusively through your Close to My Heart consultant from July 1 - 31, 2013. You can purchase this stamp set for only $5 with a qualifying purchase.






If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create  If you came from "Darla " of "Caution: Crafting is Contagious" then you are in the right

For my project, I decided to stamp one of the images and color it with color pencils. I used Sweet leaf for the back round green. I outlined the leaves in a dark green, then I colored them in with a lighter green color. I did the same with the yellow for the flowers and the red for the apple. The image is stamped in black ink, and it is popped up with a little bit of foam tape.
