Playing with new ideas with CTMH

Welcome back

Today I have made some cards with this beautiful stamp set Flowers for Mum from the Seasonals Expressions 1 catalogue.  The catalogue is now retired but the stamp sets will be available for a while on my website here.  This stamp set comes with ‘Mum’ and ‘Mom’ versions which is so thoughtful of CTMH to do to cater for the two different markets.  I love the flowers on this and thought I might try something different with stamping techniques.

I love the new enamel assortments from the new Blossom Reflections range in the new Seasonal Expressions catalogue and thought I would see how I go with stamping and using liquid glass and I was pleased with the outcome.

I have stamped the base image with sorbet ink and then using the outline image I have then stamped with Ranger gold embossing powder and heat set it.  I then stamped the centre again with the versamark and gold embossing powder after colouring the centre in with the Shinhan Touch Twin Golden Yellow marker.  To finish I used liquid glass for a lovely shiny effect.  I then fussy cut out the image.  As I said I was really pleased with the outcome.

Here are some cards that I have made using these images.  I have used the sorbet coloured paper from the Whimsy Paper Fundamentals pack as it worked well with the colour schemes. the photo has picked up the beautiful texture of the paper.  I love these leaves from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and use them all the time with my projects.

For this card I also did the same technique with the little blue flowers using the glacier ink, and used small strips of Blossom paper to link the blue to the card as a whole.

I am very happy with these clean and simple cards.

I have used the Happy to Be Friends stamp set for the sentiments.  I love this stamp set as it is so useful for lots of different projects.  I needed to make some more general birthday cards for Gift Hutt so these were very useful.
