To celebrate and share with you these new products, I’m part of a CTMH 2010 Spring Idea Book New Product Blog Hop – wow, that’s a mouthful. If you came from my friend Carla’s blog you’re on the right track. If you’re starting here…grab a cup of your favorite beverage, a notebook & pen (so you can jot down your wish list). Sit back and warm up with these wonderful ideas.
So Sweet is one of the stamp sets that was on my must have list – look at this beautiful set:
The Filigree Charms are GORGEOUS and were an embellishment that I just had to play with. So exciting that these Filigree Charms come in the Veranda Basic Workshop on the Go Kit!
I chose to make a card using the Done Right pattern on page 119 of the Wishes how-to book. If you like Card Sketches, then give one of these books a try – just email me for a PDF or two!

Stamp the flower cluster in Stazon Brown Ink on a piece of Vanilla Cream cardstock.
Tip: To clean your blending pen, just scrub it on the desk pad or scratch paper.
Finish coloring the image adding Sorbet to the tips of the flowers and Juniper for the leaves. Use a corner rounder to round just the left corners on the piece.
Follow the Done Right pattern on page 119 of the Wishes how-to book to create the card.
Note: I added a secondary Juniper mat under my flower panel for added interest.
Stamp the sentiment using Stazon Brown ink.
Remove the Filigree Charm of your choice from the carrier foam.
Tip: Use tweezers or a piercing tool so you don’t get ink all over your fingers!
Wipe off any excess ink using a paper towel and then use a heat tool to heat set the ink.
Here’s what it looks like shown with the others – in person it’s much more apparent than what you may be seeing on the computer screen.
Now…hop on over to Adeline’s blog to see what she’s come up with!
