Frosted WOTG

This card is from the Frosted WOTG.  I did change it a bit.  I was unsure how I'd like the red and green with the frosted papers, but I do like it... it's a nice contrast.  I bought the workshop really just so I could get the stamp set that came with it, but the card designs are really nice and versatile.

Your Laughter

Another old card kit that I updated with some banners and new stamp sets and a stitched heart using the new stitching guide.  Love these colors together!

Three Amigos Blog Hop-October

Welcome back to the Three Amigos CTMH Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. Each month we will feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

For our October "Hop" we chose the "Always Grateful" Stamp Set.

Lately I've been trying to use up some old card workshop kits I have sitting around collecting dust.  The great thing about our coordinating colors is as paper packs and embellishments come and go you can still mix and match the old with the new.  I've been trying to update each card with something current whether it's a stamp set, paper or embellishments.  The "Always Grateful" stamp set is very versatile.  I used the pine tree stamp on the first card as a background on the brayered blue piece to look like a night time winter scene.  I also updated the card by using some paper from the Frosted paper pack.  The colors on the second card were perfect for the leaved tree.  I used the foam from the stamp set to dab different autumn colors on the tree leaves before I stamped it.  I wrapped the card with Jute ribbon that I pulled apart.  I'd love to see your mix of old and new!

 Thanks so much for stopping by!  Now hop over to Donna's Diary of a Scrapbook Addict Blog and see what she has created to share with you!
