So my niece turns 6 today, so I quickly whipped up a card to mail to her. I like the bright bold feminine colours. I thought they were perfect for a little girls card. I used the CTMH 'Whoops a Daisy' paper pack. I used the 'Everyday Celebrations' stamp set, and popped the cake up on 3D foam squares.I also used CTMH's pretty pins. The pin is a light pink colour, so not quite right for this card, so I took some liquid glass and mixed it with some watermelon ink and then painted it onto the pin for a bolder look. For this card I used a few non-CTMH items which are the diamond stickles (glitter), The pink ribbon and the Swiss Dots embossing folder. Featured colours:

Winter Play!

Here is a layout I made for my album. It is of me and my two sisters taking pictures of the igloo we built for my two kids. I absolutely love this colour combination and how this layout turned out! I also love these photo's, they capture the essence of winter and sisterhood beautifully.

I paper pieced the 'love this' and 'captured moments' stamps for multi-toned images. To created the green snowflake paper I first sanded the paper and then random stamped the snowflakes on the olive cardstock. I then inked a sponge and swiped it around the edge of my pieces for a soft distressed finish. The punched out olive and sorbet snowflakes were made by a Martha Stewart punch. Everything else used is CTMH product.
