I needed two thank you cards for my convention roomie/friends. I used the July Stamp of the Month, Circus Alphabet (Item #S1407). This is also a sneak peek at the new Shin-Han markers CTMH is unveiling in the August Annual Inspirations Idea Book. I love the way they color! Also a sneak peek at one of the new washi tapes, Topiary (item #Z2002), that is also available in August. I used various CTMH solid colors to make the festive banner for the multi-color card, and Skylark paper for the green card. Notice that I cut one inch squares to stamp the individual letters on – that way if you mess up coloring you can do one letter over and the letters are easy to line up this way. Also, don’t hesitate to stamp letters in a random, wavy pattern if you have trouble lining the stamps up perfectly straight. Perfect is the enemy of good! Have fun with stamping and creating! The Skylark paper pack is available until the end of July (Item #X7177B). Get your favorite papers before the end of July! All of the B&T duos patterned papers will be replaced with exciting new designs effective August 1.
Here are the two cards I made for my wonderful friends, Kelle and Erin:
Green Thank You card with the Circus Alphabet and Topiary Washi Tape.
Multi-Color Thank You card made with the Circus Alphabet.
Don’t forget – you can only get this cute alphabet stamp set during July. Retail is $17.95, but you can get it for $5.00 with any $50 purchase during July. My personal online CTMH shop is located at http://cydneyfowlercreations.ctmh.com. Click on the link to shop.

Welcome to our monthly Damask Divas blog hop. We are featuring the Skylark paper pack. If you got here from Brenda’s blog, you are in the right place. You can always start from the beginning by going to the Damask Divas blog where you will find a list of all of the participants and links to their blogs. I created a few cards. I just love the paper with the birds and dragonflies so I cut my paper to highlight those images. I added some embellishments – wood color ready shapes that compliment the design, washi tape, the zip strip from the edge of the paper, some leaves and bling. These papers are perfect for Spring and Summer. The colors are very soothing and peaceful.
Dragonfly – Spread Your Wings
Skylark – Believe
Blue Bird – Happy Birthday
That beautiful blue bird is part of the paper design not an embellishment! This paper would be great as a scrapbook page background as well. I hope these cards give you some crafty inspiration.
