Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #74

Image
We are back at school!  So exciting for us here in BC, while many will agree the contact isn't perfect it does get our kids and their teachers back in the classroom with hopefully many positive changes to come in the next few years. Time will tell and for now I am happy that my son is excited to be going to Grade One.
With this in mind I decided to make his teacher a card for this Friday afternoon to congratulate her survival of not only a lengthy job action but the first week back with a room full of first graders who had 5 extra weeks of summer...
Using this weeks sketch from Atlantic Hearts, the Chalk It Up  paper packet and the stamp set from the Chalk It Up Workshop on the Go. I made this super fun and for me, super busy card. This is also a 6x6 size card which is much larger than I typically make but I really wanted to use the "Life is good" stamp.
Other products for this card are White Enamel Stars, Black Arrow Washi Tape, Chalk it Up Assortment (which are puffy s…

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #72

Whew! been a very busy day with a very demanding 6 year old and I didn't know if I was going to make this deadline! While I totally support the teachers during this strike I REALLY need my kid back in school ASAP!  He is just really bored, even with my attempts to come up with fun things to do and some days (like today) he just wants/needs all my attention whereas other days I barely see him unless.
Anyways, as always this weeks sketch from Atlantic Hearts is sooo super cute and I wish I had given myself a bit longer to play but I did come up with a super cute card (in my opinion).  Using the Chalk It Up Paper Packet and the Mini size stamps Happy Birthday  and Shooting Star. I literally put this card together in 20 minutes, fussy cutting included!
Other products used are the new Flaxen Ink with the much loved Sorbet and Lagoon for the stamped images and I did edge the papers using Flaxen.
The cardstocks used are also in Lagoon and Sorbet. I did sand both of the base pieces usin…

#30yearsofhappy!

Over the past several months we have been celebrating our founder & CEO Jeanette Lynton's 30 years in the industry, so to continue this celebration and to honour National Stamping Month (September) CTMH has created this super cute stamp set of 30 little mini stamps! And when I say cute I mean CUTE!
This morning I decided to get crafty with this stamp set and quickly came up with two 3x3 cards.  I think the hardest part of the cards was deciding which stamps to use and I did stamp most of them in different colours to see which would work best.  Products I used for this card:
- Colonial White cardstock for the base and stamped banner - Kraft Cardstock - Pathfinding Paper Packet (love using up all my little scraps from other projects on quick cards!) - Chocolate and Goldrush Ink - Gold Sequins  Products I used for this card:
-Colonial White Cardstock for the base - Sunset Chevron Washi Tape! And yes, I did do the reverse pattern on purpose! - Kraft Cardstock - Aqua Dots - Pear I…
