Card Inspiration from the New CTMH Annual Inspiration Book

Oh my I am overwhelmed with excitement about the new CTMH products featured in the Annual Inspiration Idea book. These products will be available August 1st!! I have had the pleasure of creating with some of them and are sharing some cards I have created.

There are 9 paper packets!! YES...9!! You will see some of them captured here...ready set GO!!

Seaside Paper....
 I really like the colors in this paper. I used the new CTMH markers to color the boots. The stamp is called Rainy Day.

 This stamp set is called Treasured Friendship. I again used the markers to color in the shells a bit. If you take a closer look you will see 2nd generation stamping using the tree from the Always Grateful stamp set. Added some glitter at the bottom of the shells for a sandy effect.

Scaredy Cat paper...
 How cute and fun is this card. I used the Frightfully fun stamp set. Again using the markers to color the images.

The main image in this card was cut out from the patterned paper and backed with black card stock. The ghosts are from the Frightfully fun stamp set.

Confetti Paper...
 You will have tons of fun with this paper. The stamp set is Puppy Party. I used the new Thistle ink for the puppy.
This card was a lot of fun to make. I used the 2 new Triangle and Chevron CTMH punches. The triangle punch allowed me to make the cute banner. I used the Sweet as Sugar stamp set.

Yuletide Carol paper...
 While this is Christmas paper I thought the pattern could go well for a Wedding card. I used the Celebrate Love stamp set. The coloring was again with the new CTMH markers.

This card is one of my FAVS!! I used the design from the Snowhaven card making kit however using Yuletide paper. Shows how you can use the instruction cutting guides and designs over and over again. The stamp set is Sing Glory. 

Brushed paper....
 This card was made with the Happy Day stamp set. I love the springy feel. Super cute colors and design. I used the new Thistle, Glacier, Pixie and Canary ink.
I love this card!! The sentiment speaks to me. I used the Always be Your Kind of Wonderful Stamp. I masked the sentiment image so I could place the words separately around the butterfly. I stamped the image twice so I could add some dimension with the colored butterfly again using the new CTMH markers. The base & bling ornament was used as an embellishment. I glittered the butterfly after coloring. 

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the new stamps and paper collections. Tons of fun to look forward to using these new products. I would love for you to shop with me...CLICK HERE.
