Finally Some New Cards!

Wow, I haven't posted in awhile. Been super busy as of late. But was able to relax today and make a couple new cards.

The last time I placed an order from CTMH for myself I saw these two stamps sets called Tree Tops and True Happiness (I used these for cards shown here) and I loved them. They are such a great design. And will go well with a lot of the nature scrapbooking supplies that seem to be a hot trend right now.

For the card above I stamped the images in Versamark and chalked over the image. I haven't chalked on a project in years. But held a gathering recently and one of the girls ordered some chalk, and I thought to myself I really need to dust my chalk off and put it to use. I forgot what an ease they are to use, and the finished project looks so pretty. I can tell after finishing this card I will be keeping the chalks out of the drawer and on the table so I can use them often.

For the above card I used both stamp sets for the card.

For this next card I just used the Treetops stamps set. I really like how this one came out. Used three different green inks and the same brown for the trunks. To make the card stand out a little more I used some pop dots/foam adhesive. Using dimensional adhesive really adds a great touch to any project, especially cards. I doubled up the tree in the middle so it can really stand out. The pic below shows how it looks on its side.

Well hopefully my next post won't be in 20 days, lol. I expect to post a lot sooner than that! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. These cards turned out great--I just got my host order from my party last month--19 ink pads a book and the passages 50% off kit plus all the stuff I bought--so excited about these stamps--TFS!

  2. These cards are adorable.
    I have never chalked before. The only chalk I have ever used is on the sidewalk teehee.

  3. Both cards came out great!!!!
