New CTMH Products – Blog Hop

By Helen | August 28, 2009

Welcome to our Close To My Heart New Product Sneak Peek Blog Hop! 29 Fabulous CTMH Consultants are celebrating the upcoming release of the Autumn/Winter 2009 Idea Book by giving you a Sneak Peek of some of the great products available in the new Idea Book starting September 1st!

If you have come here from Jody’s blog, then you’re on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Erin’s blog to start from the beginning.  To follow along on the hop, just click on the link at the end of each blog post to move onto the next blog.  Grab your favorite beverage, sit back and enjoy the hop!

This card was so much fun!  The patterned papers are all from the same piece from the new Jingle Paper Pack!  I added one of the birds from the Heartfelt Die-Cuts – these felt pieces are so versatile.  I edged the bird using the Create-A-Shade paint and added one of the new Twinkle Brads for the eye.  To finish off the card, I added a bit more sparkle with the new Glitter Rub-Ons – these are amazing!

Autumn 2009 026

Materials Used:

  • Jingle Paper Pack X7115B
  • Heartfelt Die-Cuts Z1145
  • Twinkle Brads Jolly Assortment Z1220
  • Glitter Rub-Ons Z1222

    Cute card – I love how you layered the ‘swooped’ pieces, and how you edged the felt, and I can’t wait to play with those glitter rub-ons now! TFS!

    That bird is adorable – really like how you edged him in paint, really gives him a ‘finished’ look.

    Love your card, Helen! What a perfect little ‘partridge in a pear tree’ for your Christmas themed card.

    Love your card! I love the brad for the eyeball. So simple yet SO cute! I just wanted to let you know that when I click on the words “Sheila’s blog” the link doesn’t work. It worked on the one below your name in the list. Am I the only one having this problem?

    Cute card!
    Love what you did with the papers and using the felt bird.

    I love the “whooshes” on the card! So very creative- and I would have never thought to use the felt bird with this paper pack, but it works beautifully!!!

    Thanks for playing on the blog hop! FABULOUS work!!

    Excellent work – your card is very sweet and I’ll bet even more stunning in person – the camera never seems to pick up the glimmer much. Thank you for the ideas!

    Great card! I love the way you showed how you can use 1 sheet of paper with so many different looks :)
