If you get lost , you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, so naturally, I was drawn to the autumn themed products in the New Holiday Expressions catalog.  My favorite stamp set, so far, has been the Falling For You Cardmaking set with the matching Thin Cuts.  This set is full of possibilities.  You can shade the images with markers or pencils, cut them out and layer them, use them for a background, and more. On this card, I chose to use the stamp set many different ways, including heat embossing the images.  As always, I’ve included a list of the products used to create this card at the very bottom of this post.

HolidayBlogHop_Card
Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base, 4½” x 3¼” Watercolor Paper, 1″ x 6″ Vellum Paper

Techniques Used:
• Since Fall is so full of color, I used our Watercolor paints to create a background on the 4½” x 3¼” Watercolor paper.  HolidayBlogHop_WatercolorBaseWhile is was still partially wet, I stamped the leaf images onto the cardstock using Flaxen & Saffron inks.  This is what mine looked like when I was finished.
• The larger leaf images we created using our Gold & White Embossing Powders. Once the watercolor paints were dry,  I stamped the White Embossed Leaf image first, heat it to set, then stamped the Gold Embossed Leaf image.
• The sentiment was created by taking the phrases and placing them in a line on a 3½” x 2″ Acrylix Block, then stamping them onto the watercolor paper with Black Ink.
• The smaller leaf images were heat embossed with our Gold & White Embossing Powders on the 1″ x 6″ piece of vellum.  I used the matching Thin Cuts to cut out the images, then layered them behind the watercolor paper.

Autumn Thank You Card

I am a fan of quick and simple cards – the ones I can throw together in under ten-minutes.   I like cards that appear elegant and classy, yet took minimal effort to make.  If you feel as I do, you will adore this autumn thank you card which uses simple images from our Feel So Blessed stamp of the month. This card is all about textures. Texture can add so much to a simple card and bring it to the next level.  I have included a few simple techniques you can use to create texture on any card. As always, the list of products I used can be found at the very bottom of this post.

AutumnThankYouCard.jpg

Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base, 4¾” x 4″ Tangerine Cardstock, 2″ x 6″ Fern Cardstock, 1½” x 1″ Espresso Cardstock, 1½” x 3¾”” Almond Cardstock

Techniques Used:
• Embossing Folders are a great way to add texture. I used the Rose Embossing Folder on the Tangerine cardstock, rounded the corners, and cut it into 1″ strips.
• Our Thin Cuts create a soft edges around each of the images. Since my Cricut® was packed away, I needed an alternative way to cut out the leaves. Our Falling For You Cardmaking Thin Cut worked perfectly for this task.  (Just because they came with the stamp set, doesn’t mean I always have to use them with the stamps.) After cutting three leaves from Fern cardstock, I used the Buffalo Plaid Embossing Folder to add “veins” to the leaves.
• Ribbon is another way to add texture to a project.  I used Burlap Ribbon to create a decorative knot  and attached it to the bundle of leaves.
• You can use ink to add more depth & texture.  I inked all of the edges with Toffee Ink before attaching them to the card.

Don’t forget that the Feel So Blessed stamp of the month is only available until September 30th.  Visit the “Promotions” tab on my website to learn how you can purchase this stamp set for only $5.00.

From the Heart Color Dare Card

It has been almost a month since I last entered the Color My Heart Dare Challenge.  My life was a bit chaotic, so, unfortunately, crafting was not a priority.  I do love the fact that Close to My Heart allows me, as a consultant, to set my own hours so that when “life” changes, I can still have my family be my priority without worry.

This week, I used the From the Heart stamp set to create a card using Willow, Raspberry, Bashful, Charcoal and White Daisy for the Color My Heart Dare challenge.  I love that Close to My Heart has such beautiful products that we can use to make cards like this with very little time or effort.  This stamp set is available during the month of September for  $29.95 OR pay only $5.00 more and receive the From the Heart Kit to create twelve interactive cards using this stamp set.

FromtheHeartColorDareCard.jpg

Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base, 5¼” x 4″ Cardstock (Charcoal), 5″ x 3¾” Cardstock (White Daisy), 4″ x 1¾” Cardstock (Charcoal), 2¾” x 1½” Cardstock (White Daisy), ¾” x 1½” Cardstock (White Daisy)

Stamping Techniques:
Since the challenge only allowed two pinks and one green, I had to use these colors in multiple ways.  For this card I used the “Second Generation Stamping” technique to add depth to my project. What is Second Generation Stamping? Once a stamp is inked, you can achieve a second generation stamp by stamping the image first onto your desk pad (or other scratch piece of paper) and then onto your cardstock.

• The stem of the largest flower was stamped using Willow ink.  I created the “Leaves” by using the Second Generation of Willow. It still allows the stem to show through while using the same color of ink.
• The small cup shaped flowers were first stamped using the Second Generation of Raspberry Ink, then the detailed lines were added using Raspberry ink. Once again, I was able to use the same color, but the Second Generation technique allowed to details to show through.
• The From the Heart stamp set has many choices for layered flowers, and you can use Second Generation stamping to create depth and get more use out of you inks.  Below is a little “cheat sheet” I created to show you ways I stamped the larger flower using the Second Generation (2nd) stamping technique.

October Workshops

Are you ready for fall? My October workshops will put you in the mood for some cooler weather, autumn tones, and teach you some new techniques you can use on your upcoming projects.  I have two workshops during the month of October, so please make sure to RSVP by October 6th for each one you wish to attend.

Falling For You Workshop

FallingForYouWorkshop_Date

We will be making one 2-page 12″ x 12″ layout and two autumn themed cards using the beautiful Falling For You papers and matching accessories.  I will be teaching you how to create a “quilted” scrapbook layout, how to use embossing powers, and using reinkers to create multi-toned stamped images.  If you wish to attend this workshop, you can learn more about the kits available  by visiting the Events page or on my Facebook event page. 

 

Fall Wreath Cricut® Class

FallWreathCricutClass

Come learn the basics of using our Flower Market Cricut® cartridge in Design Space as you create this festive fall wreath. Bring your laptop, Cricut® and basic supplies, and  I will walk you through some basic techniques for designing a wreath and creating three-dimensional flowers with your Cricut®.   You will learn how to size, layer, and manipulate the images as well as taking apart images to weld them to text and other images. There are pre-requisites for this class so make sure to visit the Events page or my Facebook event page. 

More Fall Projects

I have also created a Kit of the Month for both September and October that would be perfect for your fall photos. You can visit my Kit of the Month tab in the Kits & Guides tab to learn more about these fun layouts.  These are wonderful kits you can complete at home at your own pace when it fits into your schedule.


If you have any questions about these workshops or suggestions for future workshops, please feel free to contact me at misscarriectmh@gmail.com.  I would love to schedule a date with you and your friends to complete one of these workshops together.  I always love seeing how talented you all are when you create!

Gratitude Treat Holders

I love giving gifts to my workshop and retreat attendees. It’s my way of saying “thank you” for taking the time to support me and my business.  This week, I have been working on creating some gifts my upcoming retreat that didn’t require too much time or money, and, since most of us are limited on both of these, I thought I would share what I created using our Feel So Blessed stamp set and Cats & Bats paper packet.

GreatfulTreat.jpg

You will notice that the paper I used looks a little different from the one shown in the Holiday Expressions catalog.  As a consultant, I have access to “bulk” papers which allows me to purchase a package of one paper design that I can use to make multiple projects.  Contact me at misscarriectmh@gmail.com for more information about how you can have access to these bulk packets.

Paper Needed: 6″ x 6″ B&T Paper (Cats & Bats), 3″ x 4″ Cardstock (Colonial White/Almond), 4″ x 4″ Pomegranate, 2″ x 3″ Saffron, 2″ x 3″ Fern

Assembly Instructions:
1. Place a strip of glue or double sided tape along one side of the 6″ x 6″ B&T paper.  Twist your paper until it resembles a cone shape and press in place to seal.
GreatfulTreat_Cone
2. Using the Your Are Here Cricut® cartridge cut out the “Tag” image and “Leaf” images.  (You can access my Cricut® Design Space file here, but you must own the cartridge to cut out the images.  You can purchase the Your Are Here Cricut® bundle on my website.)
3. Using Goldrush Ink, stamp the splattered background onto the tag.
4. Using Nutmeg Ink, stamp the “Thankful” sentiment onto the tag, then stamp the “Heart” image using Goldrush Ink.
5. Using Gold Ribbon, Gold Glitter Paper, or Gold Shimmer Trim, create a “Ribbon” at the top of the tag and staple in place using a Mini-Stapler.

 


6. Using the Buffalo Plaid and Leaf Embossing Folder, dry emboss the “Leaf” images.
7. Adhere all of the layers to the front of the cone using a strong adhesive.
8. Fill icing bags with the treat of your choice, tie a ribbon on the end, and trim as needed.  These fit perfectly inside of the cones.

Don’t forget that the Feel So Blessed stamp of the month is only available until September 30th.  Visit the “Promotions” tab on my website to learn how you can purchase this stamp set for only $5.00.

National Stamping Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Stamping Month Blog Hop where we will be featuring the From the Heart products.  These products include a beautiful card kit and stamp set that can be used to make some gorgeous creations.  StampingMonthBadge If you have come here from Vickie ODell’s blog, you are on the right path! When you are finished reading my post, you can click on the link at the end to move to the next blog.  This blog hop is designed to allow you to start here and work your way around. It’s simple, fun, and full of ideas using the From the Heart products.

If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog: http://ifyoublingit.blogspot.com/p/stamp-of-month-blog-hop-list.html.

During the month of September, I will be creating some simple projects using the From the Heart stamp set so make sure to visit often for more inspiration. As I roamed the internet for ideas, I saw that this stamp set was used often with brightly colored flowers and I wondered what it would look like using simple brown tones.  I decided to step outside the box and use our basic colors which resulted in this fall layout that features our Basics Fundamentals papers and inks.  I truly enjoy how it turned out. As always, I’ve included a list of the products used to create this layout at the very bottom of this post.

NSMBasicsLayout
Paper Needed: 12″ x 12″ White Daisy Cardstock, 1″ x 12″ B&T Paper, 1½” x 12″ B&T Paper, ¼” x 12 Espresso Cardstock, ½” x 12 Espresso Cardstock, 6″ x 2″ B&T Paper (Basic Fundamentals), (3) 2″ x 2″ B&T Paper (Basic Fundamentals), 6″ x 4″ Espresso Cardstock, 2″ x 2″ Nutmeg Cardstock

Techniques Used:
• I used all of the brown tones of the Basic Fundamentals paper pack.  You could change this by using all of the grey tones with a Black & White photo.
• After placing down the top and bottom paper and cardstock strips, I used a pencil to draw out the space where my photos and papers would be placed. This helped me to stamp the images on the corners without having to create a mask.  Some of my images where stamped partially inside the drawn rectangle to allow my papers to overlap the stamped images.
• The images were stamped using the From the Heart stamp set with Almond, Toffee, Espresso, and Nutmeg inks.  To create more depth, some of my images are stamped using second generation stamping allowing me to using the inks twice for the same image.


• The small heart was created using Nutmeg cardstock and our Basic Hearts Thin Cuts.  I took apart the White Burlap Ribbon and created two pieces of twine to tie across the heart.
• I always adding a little shine to my layouts, so I placed a strip of Rose Gold Foil tape across the base of the inner rectangle.  After looking at it longer, I might add some Rose Gold gems later.

From the Heart Pop-Up Card

Have you seen our beautiful National Stamping Month products?  During the month of September, Close to My Heart has created a limited time From the Heart kit that you can use to create some gorgeous projects. To celebrate National Stamping Month,  I have been creating with our From the Heart products, and, this week, I have created an interactive pop-up card using the From the Heart stamp set for the heARTful Stamping Challenge and the House of Cards Challenge.   I love how the sentiment on this card will slide up and down through the slot, how it folds flat for mailing, and is free standing once it is opened.  As always, I’ve included a list of the products used to create this card at the very bottom of this post.

NSMPopUpCard.jpg

Paper Needed: 11″ x 4¼” White Daisy Cardstock, 5½” x 2¾” Crystal Blue Cardstock, 5¼” x 2½” Pacifica Cardstock

Assembly Instructions:
1. Using Glacier, Crystal Blue, and Pacifica, and Canary inks, stamp the flower image randomly onto the 11″ x 4¼” White Daisy cardstock.
2. Using Sweet Leaf and Juniper inks, stamp the leaf image randomly next to the flower images onto the White Daisy cardstock.
3. Using Flaxen ink, stamp the stem image randomly onto the White Daisy cardstock, next to the flower images allowing them to overlap.  (Below is a photo of what mine looked like when I was finished.)
NSMPopUpCard_Background
4. Score the White Daisy cardstock on the long side at  1″, 2¾”, 3¾”, 5½”, 7¼”, 8¼”, and 10″.
5. With the longer side of the White Daisy cardstock still at the lop of the paper cutter, line up the cardstock at the center so that the shorter end is at the 5½” mark.  Cut from ¾” to 3½” using the arrow (or line) on the cutting blade to see where to cut. (You will be cutting along the 5½” score line.)
NSMPopUpCard_CenterCut
6. Fold the cardstock along all score lines using a bone folder to burnish the folds. Set aside.
7. Using VersaMark Ink, stamp the sentiment onto the 5¼” x 2½” Pacifica cardstock, then sprinkle with White Embossing power and heat until set using a heat gun.
8. Adhere the Pacific cardstock with the sentiment onto the center of the 5½” x 2¾” Crystal Blue cardstock.
9. Apply adhesive at at each of the shorter ends of the White Daisy cardstock (the top and bottom of the card base).

 


10.  Slide the layered cardstock with the sentiment in the slit on the front of your card, then turn it over, fold the ends so the tape is facing you, remove the backing on the tape and adhere the layered cardstock. Fold the other end down so it is on top adhering it along the bottom (like a sandwich with the layered image in the middle).

 


11. If desired, adhere Silver Sequins and a ¼” Silver Glitter paper strips as embellishments.

Remember that the From the Heart stamp set and kit are only available while supplies last until September 30th.  Visit the Promotions Tab of my website to order your National Stamping Month From the Heart products.
I can’t wait to see what you create!

We are Stronger Together

Close to My Heart has created a stamp set designed specifically to benefit those affected by disasters, such as the recent hurricanes in the United States and the wildfires throughout the US and Canada. The stamp set is titled Stronger Together and features a variety of sentiments that can be used for comfort, encouragement, and more.

My Acrylix® Stronger Together (C1716)  Set of 10
Recommended My Acrylix® blocks:
1″ × 1″ (Y1000), 1″ × 3½” (Y1002), 2″ × 2″ (Y1003), 3″ × 3″ (Y1006), 2″ × 3½” (Y1009)

$13.95 USD/$17.25 CAD

In order to be able to support multiple needs, Close to My Heart has determined that proceeds from the sale of this set will be donated to the Red Cross, which provides relief efforts to multiple disasters, and which will allocate the funds to where they are needed most. In order to maximize the donation amount, this set will not benefit me in any way so that more proceeds—including the amount that would normally go toward paying my commissions—will be donated to the Red Cross.

We believe in the good that comes when we work together as a community. As the stamp set name states, we truly are stronger together. This stamp set is a great way to show that we can come together and strengthen those who need some extra help in the wake of devastation.

Thank you for your willingness to help those in need.
