A Canary Butterfly (CTMH Blog Boosters)

The new Annual Inspirations idea book from Close to My Heart is now available with a fabulous selection of great new products for all your creative projects in the upcoming year.   In order to introduce some of the new products, a select group of Close To My Heart consultants will be sharing their creations in this CTMH Blog Boosters Blog Hop.  A thumbnail of each participant's creation is shown in the Linky list below.  Simply click on a thumbnail to go to their blog post with detailed information. 

And we all LOVE to read comments about our work, please 'give us some love' by leaving a quick comment telling the artist your favorite part of their project.

Pattern 26 in Make It From Your Heart volume 1 was the inspiration for the card design.  CTMH introduced five new colors to their Whimsy palette, and Canary yellow is my favorite.  For this card using both a butterfly and a sentiment from the Your Own Kind of Wonderful stamp set, it is paired with Slate ink and cardstock.  The white and Canary chevron paper is from Paper Fundamentals Whimsy Assortment, and the Chevron embossing folder repeats the pattern on a piece of White Daisy.  The detailed butterfly was stamped using Canary pigment ink and then embossed using Clear Super Fine embossing powder.  As a finishing touch, a few clear Sparkles were added.  

Be sure to visit all the blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas!  





All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
