A Sneak Peek and an Old Favorite...

Happy Tuesday!!! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods, I'm just here trying to get through another day of work...LOL!!! :D Last night I had some free time to work on a few cards and they really came together fast, took about an hour for both...now that's fast for me!!! :D The first card gives a sneak peek at the CTMH September Stamp of the Month. Now I wasn't sure I liked it when I saw it, but after making this card....I LOVE IT!!! :D This card is different from what I normally do as far as my stamped images go...but I guess that's why I like it so much. I chose the colors Hollyhock, Sweet Leaf, Olive, Autumn Terracotta & Buttercup. Let me know what ya think!!!

Stamps: Treasure Life (CTMH) Paper: Boom-Di-Ada Paper Pack & Hollyhock, Autumn Terracotta, Olive & Colonial White CS (CTMH) Ink: Hollyhock, Autumn Terracotta, Buttercup & Olive (CTMH) Accents: Hemp, Pewter Brads (CTMH) & Foam Circles


Now for the second card, I used my Good Times paper pack and my Star Struck stamp set. Wow, I just realized that both of my cards are all CTMH...yay me!!! :D The colors for this card are Chocolate, Twilight, Sweet Leaf, Buttercup & Colonial White. I really like the Star Struck stamp set...it's one of my favorites and the Good Times paper pack is fun too!!! :D

I really like the first card! I was sorda the same way when I got my SOTMs I was like, ok. But then I saw the catalog and the ideas they had and now your card and I'm totally inspired to use it!

I like the Good Times card too! That paper pack is so versatile!

Wowee love your first card! I have only ever used my silhoutte flowers with black ink, I sure do love it with colors.

Love them! Isn't funny how a stamp set doesn't always look that great until you use it? To think that I didn't want Rustic Flowers when I first saw it. Now, it is one of my favs! :-)

Beautiful cards, Jenn! I loved the Sept. SOM the first time I saw it, because it is so different from anything CTMH has done. I also love what you've done with it...so, so pretty. And your birthday card is very fun! The DP is perfect! TFS.
