And to celebrate we are having a CTMH 2009 World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop!  This is a great group of consultants who will be sharing some wonderful cards with you today.  It’s a round robin hop so you may start here or if you have come from Debra’s blog you are on the right path and welcome!



I discovered the Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint when making this card.  I used a paint brush to apply the paint to the B&T Duo paper.  It gives it such a beautiful shimmery shine!  I also like using the Creative Basics when making cards.  It comes with bulk ribbon and paper to make sets of cards.  This combined with the Wishes card idea book makes for quick cards at a reasonable price and is this paper is perfect for some funand contemporary Christmas cards.   I have two pictures of the card to try and show you how much it shines.  Give it a try!

Products used are a CTMH: Creative Basics – Jingle (paper & ribbon), Wishes, Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint, White Daisy Brads, White Daisy Cardstock, Juniper Cardstock, Holiday Jingle Stamp Set, Tulip Ink, and Sparkles.

Now go to Kathleen’s blog to continue hopping!

Ooh, I love that shimmer and shine! I’ve got to get my paint out and play. Thanks for the inspiration.

I love the Holiday Jingles set. Very darling card. The create a shade looks so cool. Wish I could see it in real life because I’m sure it’s dazzling!

Simply “JOY”ful! Love the paint! Did you apply it after gluing the B&T to the card base? I must put it on too thick because my pieces always curl when dry. CTMH gives us so many great products to play with!

I love your little snowflake “O”! And the sparkle rocks!

Fabulous!!! I love how you painted the paper – I guess I’m going to have to get out my pearl paint again – TFS!

Awesome use of the pearl paint! Your picture caught the shimmer perfectly.

Love the use of the pearl paint directly over the B&T Paper…clever idea because it really does give it some pretty shimmer!

Camy · 10/03/2009 at 4:33 pm

Great card. You have inspired me to use the Create-a-shade paint!
Thank you.

I love the simplicity of this. It makes the “Joy” really pop.

What pretty and simple card. I too love the create-a-shade paint – perfect for that little bit of shimmer.
