CTMH Regional Convention

Eeek! I signed up to attend the CTMH regional convention in Minneapolis in October AND I signed up to participate in a card swap. Stress! Anyone else going?

Boom-Di-Ada Birthday Card

In case you hadn't guessed, I have NO plans for the weekend, but I am getting my card inventory built back up.

This birthday card is based on another Wishes pattern, Designer Tag. I used the Boom-Di-Ada creative basics set and the "happy birthday" is from the Annotations stamp set.


Girl Jump Roping Birthday Card

This card pattern is called Cubed Collage and it's from CTMH's newest cardmaking instruction book entitled Wishes. The book helps with the basic pattern and dimensions, then you provide the creativity. I used the Playday and Fringed Phrases stamp sets and the Animal Cookies creative basics papers.

Thinking of You Card

This card measures 4-1/2" x 4-1/2". I used the Key to My Heart paper pack and the Just Because, Lovely Daisy, Adorning Corners, and Airmail stamp sets.

Monochromatic Wedding Card

The only stamp set I used was For Every Occasion for "love," which I stamped with vanilla cream, then embossed with translucent embossing powder.

Fancy Fold Birthday Card

The first picture is the card unfolded. I used Emporium papers, Butterfly Kisses stamps, and rubons, liquid glass, and stickles. The folding looks more difficult than it is, and it stands up nicely to display. I'm thinking about doing another version for a workshop.
This is the front of the card folded up. It fits into a normal envelope when folded.
I got this idea from the CTMH message boards (sorry I can't remember from who) and I believe they got the idea from Split Coast Stampers.

Tropical Birthday Card

This card uses the stamp sets Playday, Good Times, Fringed Phrases, Surf's Up, and Adorning Corners. The background paper is Animal Cookies. There is a lot of bling on the title and surfboard, and pearls in the center of the flowers.

Welcome Baby Card

I used my Cuttlebug, Nestability Dies, and the stamp sets Welcome Baby, Surf's Up, and Playday. The colors are Indian Corn Blue, Sweet Leaf, and Cocoa, and the background paper is from the Emporium paper pack. The baby and umbrella are highlighted with liquid glass.

Martini Card

I didn't want to do another duck card, but I had the martini glass shape in mind, and this is what I came up with. I used the Be Yourself and Fringed Phrases stamp sets.
