New Product Blog Hop
We will be featuring the new products found in the CTMH Annual Inspirations Idea Book that came out the first of August. If you came here from Priscilla Gotham's blog you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog: HERE

New Products used are in bold  all items used have the page number for the Annual Inspirations Idea Book;  Whimsy Fundamental Paper Pack (pg 34) flower pattern in Sorbet and Thistle and reverse sides Juniper?  Crystal Blue? Bashful pearls (pg 108) [blends well with sorbet]. Whimsy Ribbon Pack (pg 109 & 35) - Thistle, Juniper with gold and twine plus the light brown ribbon with gold down the center on card #3 from the Basic Ribbon Pack - Mink?  Not exactly sure which color, I'm on vacation and just have limited supplies. I stamped and inked white card stock to add variety to the starburst design using Thistle, Juniper, & Sorbet and the stampset used was "In the Background" (pg 98).  Sentiments used are - "Create" (pg 66) from "We Are Makers" - card # 1, and "Give Thanks" (pg 67) from "Inspired Words" - card # 2. Card #2 also has a Gold Bow clip (pg 108), a thin cut Heart border (pg 96) cut from the bashful glitter paper (pg 107) and inked with sorbet. Both card 1 & 2 also have gold glitter gems (pg 108).  The flowers are cut from the fundamentals paper, spritzed with water, wrinkled and pinch/pleated into a 3-D shape and inked.

  1. I prefer the 1st and 3rd sunburst over 2nd sunburst. I like the multiple patterns.

  2. Oh my! I have looked at all 3 cards several times and I can't choose a favourite. All 3 are so gorgeous... They are each so different but so unique at the same time. What a great way to showcase a variety of products by using the same design! Very impressive :)

  3. Nice "study" of the sunburst design.

  4. Love the vintage shabby look. Gorgeous flower!

  5. Amazing cards! I love the flowers!

  6. Great cards! I love your flowers.

  7. Stunning cards! They are fantastic and the flowers are gorgeous!
