H2H Challenges: Creative Cards

Happy Monday - This weeks challenge is creative cards, ANY size or shape except NOT a standard (A2; 4.25”x5.5”) card!
I have not made a Pop-up box card in years! I love this card style, with my daughters pending 4th birthday, loving pink and dinosaurs, this was a perfect choice!!!!

Using Something Fierce paper collection and cut aparts, I have created a pop-up box card. 

This quickly turned into a Birthday card when I used a number 4 from the artbooking cricut cartridge and the senitment Happy Birthday from the January Stamp of the Month, 'Card Captions'

The front of card will adorn my Daughters name, by using the cricut artbooking font, and welding the letters together to fit under so a-roar-able.

When folded flat, this can easily be mailed in a 5 x 7 card envelope, as it measures 5 x 5.

Be sure to visit the H2H blog to enter this weeks challenge and to see other designers' inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!

Journaling - Using your Alphabet stamps to the fullest

Hate your handwriting? Want your Journaling to stand out? Are your stickers always missing a letter or two? Why not use your Alphabet stamps? 

I interviewed my six year old on all of his favorite things. Using his answers, I journaled them as the background of my layout with my Simply Said alphabet stamp set.

Favorite Things

The end of each answer a heart was used to separate the next question. Each heart was then accented with a black shimmer brush, which adds just the right amount of sparkle. 

The rainbow wave line was created using Pomegranate, Pansy, Sapphire, Willow, and Goldrush inks, using the dotted line found in the adorable years of sweetness stamp sets. Each letter follows the same rainbow pattern. 

I just love some of his answers, be still my heart. 

Right now ALL alphabet stamps are 35% off in celebration of Close to My Hearts 35 years in business.
