My First H2H Design Team Post!!

This week at Heart 2 Heart it's time to use a stamp set you've never used before, or one you haven't touched in awhile.  This was the *perfect* challenge for me, since I am the proud new owner of the CTMH Exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (thank you, Santa!).  With the cartridge you get three awesome D-size stamp sets.  I was in need of an anniversary card, so I took this opportunity to play with my new toys.

The stamp set I haven't used before is D1497 - it comes with the cartridge, but I couldn't find a name for this set.  If someone knows it, leave me a comment and I'll update my post.  I used the star, banner, and heart stamps on Sorbet cardstock cut with my Cricut - sooooo fun!  

A piece of Elemental cardstock serves as the background, layered onto Desert Sand cardstock.  Colonial white waxy flax is threaded through the banners and buttons.

It's hard to tell from the photos, but the heart is attached with foam tape and the sentiment stripe sneaks underneath.  The sentiment is from the Say It In Style stamp set and stamped in Indian Corn Blue.  The little blue circle is one of the Elemental Complements Dimensional Elements that coordinates with the paper pack.  If you haven't picked up the Elemental Paper Packet yet, you really need to!  It's so versatile and can be used for a variety of occasions/layouts.

Thanks for reading!  I'm so excited and thrilled to be part of this Design Team.  The only thing more exciting is waiting to see what you come up with!  We'd love to have you participate in this challenge - just remember that you need to use Close To My Heart products in your artwork.
