Autumn/Winter Product Sneak Peak Blog Hop!!

Welcome to our Close to my Heart New Product Sneak Peak Blog Hop!

30 Fabulous Close to my Heart Consultants are celebrating the upcoming release of the Autumn/Winter 2009 Idea Book by giving you a Sneak Peak of some of the great products available in the new Idea Book starting September 1st!

This is simple do to- just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! This is the first stop on the Blog Hop, so sit back, relax, get out those Wish Lists and ENJOY!
Here we go!

I instantly loved the Twitterpatted paper packet the minute I saw it- and the more I played with these cute papers, the more I realized it is not just for Autumn pages or Thanksgiving cards, either! This was a fun project- I used the Wishes Template, Simple Expressions (page 40), and made three cards from the same template, but rotated it each time. Amazing how all three cards look so different!

  • The first card uses a special stamp set which you won't find in the new Idea Book! That's right, will only be available through the Workshops on the Go program! More details to come on that, but don't you just love those little mushrooms?

    Stamp Set: Hello There (Twitterpatted WOTG)
    Paper: Twitterpatted
    Ink: Desert Sand, Sorbet, Sweet Leaf
    Embellishments: Chocolate Ribbon Rounds, Colonial White Bigger Brad, 3D Foam Squares

    The moment I saw this next stamp set, Grateful Hearts, I knew there was so much you could do with it- and I cannot resist those precious sayings! Again, Wishes Template Simple Expressions is used, but rotated 90 degrees. I love this as a Fall card.
    Stamp Set: Grateful Hearts
  • Paper: Twitterpatted
  • Ink: Desert Sand, Sorbet, Sweet Leaf
  • Embellishments: 3D Foam Squares

    Lastly, who would have thought Christmas cards could be made from this paper packet? Pair it up with a Christmas Stamp (this Ms. Holiday Spirit is so sassy) and it works great! Look closely at the random-stamped holly berries and swirls in the background!

What beautiful cards! I wouldn't have thought that Twitterpated would work for Christmas, but your card is sensational. I love how these all use the same pattern but each is unique.

Amy said...

Cute cards. I love doing the three looks thing.

Great cards! I haven't been a fan of the 'Ms.' stamps, but you've changed my mind. I guess I'll have to add another stamp to my ever-growing list :)
