Card Overload using new Close To My Heart Products

I had a crafty day with my sister in law a couple days ago and was thrilled to get 5 cards done. Pretty impressive considering we had 5 kids with us. ;) They played and we played. It was perfect!!!

Here are the cards I got made... which one is your favorite?

For this Thanks card I used the new Paper Fundamentals Basic Assortment from Close To My Heart. Isn't it neat?! On one side of the paper is the black chevron with the glossy coating on it and on the other side is the black and white chevron. There are lots of different designs and colors that come in the back and you get 2 sheets of each design/color. Then I used the new Funky Blossoms Stamp Set for the flowers and the Thanks sentiment. I added a pop of Cotton Candy with the inking of the top flower which I popped up with 3D foam tape and then also added some Pink Polka Dot Washi Tape and those cute little Flamingo Dots. Almost forgot there is a strip of Black Shimmer Trim which didn't photograph well but looks fabulous in person.

For this adorable little camper card I used the new Jubilee Paper Pack from Close To My Heart along with the majorly adorable Camper Crazy Stamp Set. I mean really, how cute is that?! The little campers are way cute and the sentiments on the set make it even cuter. I used some cranberry ink and jazzed it up a bit using the new Triangle Durables.

For this baby card I used Timberline from Close To My Heart. Can you believe that outdoorsy paper pack could be used on a baby card?! It's totally versatile and I'm absolutely in love with it because of the wood grain pattern that is on there. When I saw the "zip strips" (the strip at the top of the 12x12 paper) I immediately thought what a cute baby boy project that would make. So I paired it with the B is for Baby stamp set and this is what I came up with. Pretty cute, right?!

For this fun feather card I used the new Feathers Stamp Set from Close To My Heart and paired it with some Cotton Candy Cardstock. I random stamped the background and then added the Top Note Shape that is on the Lollydoodle Stickease Pack. It was fun coloring in that little feather. I then used the new mini Stamp Set called Hi to give it a cute little sentiment.

For this card I used the new Ariana Paper Pack and Complements Set from Close To My Heart. I kept it pretty simple to not take away from the gorgeous chevron background which was embossed using the NEW embossing folders we carry. If you haven't checked them out yet, you should. They are awesome!!!

For your convenience I'm including photos/links to products used below...


Just a reminder....

Mandy the first card is my favorite one. I pink and black combination is always a winner in my book and who can go wrong with chevrons! All of the other cards look great too!
