CTMH WOTG Layout#3

Here is the last layout we did this month using the Clementine Workshop on the GO.  Normally I don't put pictures on the samples, but due to the way this layout is lined up I needed to use 4x6 and 5x7 placeholders.

CTMH WOTG Layout #1

The Workshop girlies chose Clementine for this month's workshop. Clementine features soft fall colors which are great for not only fall but summer, county fairs, cowgirls, just about anything with a soft country flavor. This first layout was simple as I wanted to focus on the pictures and the beautiful Cottage Assortment which is multi-layer button embellishment. The Cottage Assortment comes in the Workshop on the Go (WOTG)

Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! I will post Layout #2 in a couple of days.

Trying some new techniques

I had to make a card last night for a Boy Scout party I'll be attending tonight. I wanted to try something new.  I used some Time Holtz distress stain, stencils and used glue to stamp an image on the star, then rubbed with micro fine glitter. It's hard to see all the detail on the star in the picture but it looks great in person.  This is definitely a technique I will be trying again soon, next time in a cool color.

Birthday Card

Here is another card made with the triple stamp technique.  This one was for my daughter-in-law who just loves sunflowers. The stamp I used was one of the CTMH past stamp of the month's The sunflower stamp is actually an outline stamp which I colored in with our new Alcohol Markers.
