All That Glitters From the Heart



I love playing the challenge blogs except for the frustration that comes when I see the Close to My Heart consultants playing with the new CTMH products for a month before they are available to the rest of us.  Well, I have my new catalogue, and I have made my wishlist and planned my spending for the next six months.  (You know, of course, that the For Always paper pack is at the top!)  Now I just have to wait until tomorrow.  In the meantime...

The Heart 2 Heart challenge this week is to use glitter, so here is a valentine with silver glitz and (!) glitter ribbon.  I used the Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut the heart and then ran it through my Cuddlebug with a folder from the Paper Lace II set.  The brads from the Spring Blossom mini medley and the paper flowers are retired as is the color Tulip which I just love, although Ruby seems close.  I combined sentiments from the "A Little Everything" and "Say it in Style" stamp sets.

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time, Hansi

  2. Very cute card. I know what you mean about using the new stuff before our customers can get it. We just like to give sneak peaks. I think your card is just perfect using the glitter glitz and the glitter ribbon. I totally forgot about the glitter glitz. Thanks for the reminder and the inspiration.

    1. I totally understand about the sneak peaks. They are there to get customers excited about the new book and, trust me, they are effective! I placed an order on the 1st.

    1. Lol! Everyone I know who papercrafts buys from my consultant who is also a friend. No way I would want to compete with her and at this time in my life, I do not have time to build my own business. You could say cardmaking is the therapy that gets me through the chaos that life can be sometimes. Someday I might join y'all, but for now I am content with being a very good customer!
