I have been struggling with these cards the last couple days.  I had the bases but didn’t know where to go next.  Then, I ran across this challenge at Crafty Creations and the perfect stamp set came to mind!  Here is the result (click on the picture to see details):

Products used: CTMH Tinkerin’ Paper Packet, Making Memory brads, and CTMH Enjoy the Journey stamp set.  Additional details to the train were added with CTMH Sparkles, teenie-tiny eyelets (unknown), and Marvy’s Liquid Applique.

In case you haven’t noticed, I have started a trend of trying to use up an entire paper pack before moving on to something new. Right now it is working well and it gives me a great feeling of accomplishment. Currently I am working with the Tinkerin’ Paper Packet from CTMH. I am happy with how this card turned out using the sketch from ICS.

I made my own 3D embellishments by layering flowers and chipboard, then added a gem on top for a bit of bling.  Simple, yet beautiful!

This is a simple layout.  By making the title black and the background light it keeps the focus on the important parts of the layout.

Supplies used: CTMH Discovery papers and cardstock (Buttercup, Hollyhock, and Topiary), MM chipboard letters and black paint, and unknown stickers.

I found these cardboard type containers on a rummage sale.  I made them mine own by painting them in bright colors with MM paint.  I stamped the flowers with white paint and added ribbon around the edges with Glue Lines for a finished touch.  I use mine as storage in my scrapbook room but there are endless possiblities to what you could do with them.  Choose colors and themes to suit your needs for your scrapbook room, the office , the kids room, or even the garage.  Hmm…I think I might have to keep an eye out for more of these!
