CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop-From the Heart NSM

Welcome to the CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop!





We are featuring the National Stamping Month kit, From the Heart!
If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can find the complete list at the end of this post. If you came here from  Annette's Blog you're in the right place.

Now on to my project!
I decided to try a few different things. The first one I'm not pleased with and it was my first attempt with this card kit so I messed up a few things.




Supplies used for the Christmas card is the January Word Puzzle, Christmas tunes, October SOTM, and of course the From the Heart kit, Sapphire, Ruby and Nutmeg exclusive inks and the retired desert sand ink.

This second card was a little better. Struggling with not bending the side gold parts. All the stamps are from the stamp set, From the Heart. Exclusive inks used are Goldrush, Toffee, Nutmeg, Charcoal, Saffron, Canary, Fern and New England Ivy. The sparkles are form my stash. I decided to add a little watercolor which I'm not really good at. Practice makes perfect.

Thanks for checking out my projects!
