Creative Basics Mistletoe and Card Patterns Sketch 90

I enjoy creating cards using a sketch pattern and this one came pretty easily to me.

I used a 3/4" paper punch to stamp out ornaments from the Creative Basics Mistletoe patterned paper from Close To My Heart and glued them onto a cranberry CS strip.  The same ornament paper was glued onto cranberry CS and then punched with a square scallop punch.  The greeting from D1324 Christmas Melodies was stamped in Cranberry Ink on Garden Green CS.  The cardfront was texturized with a scrunched up piece of plastic wrap and Garden Green Ink. It was pretty simple and fun to do!  You can join in on the challenge here.

November Stamp of the Month and Card Pattern Sketch #89

I've had a lot of fun lately playing with Close To My Heart's November Stamp of the Month called "A Little Thanks".  The stamp set is pictured here:

It is a very versatile set which is only available during November 2010.  The price depends upon how much other CTMH product you purchase and can range from $22.95 to FREE with a $100 purchase.  In addition Close To My Heart is extending thanks to those customers who spend $100 and offering a stamp set of their choice for FREE also.  You can get 2 stamp sets for FREE this month.  It is a very good deal! You can check out the catalog through my website.

Here are some cards that I've made from this set.  The first one follows Card Patterns Sketch 89:

I used Olivia papers, Barn Red CS, Barn Red Ink and Autumn Terracotta brads.  (The flowers were made with a Martha Stewart punch.) It was very quick to do.

The next card uses Sunset Ink, Barn Red Ink and CS and some gold edged ribbon.

The third card features Splendor paper, Moonstruck CS, Topiary CS and Goldrush Ink.  Cream opaques sit on top of the green buttons.

The next card features Magnifique papers and Pacifica Ink:

The last of these cards features paper from the Creative Basics Mistletoe Collection.and Cranberry Ink.  (The flourished square frame is a Martha Stewart punch.).
