New Product Line being released August 1st

There are lots of new products being released on August 1st when our new catalogs become live.
One of the new products lines I am excited about (and want to share) is CTMH's new Base & Bling wearable crafting art.
There is a necklace, hair clips, rings, headband and wrist cuff that you use jewels, fabric, florals, word accents, etc. to create your wearable art.
Here is a picture:
There is also a Fabric Necklace Kit (for only $14.95)

I think these are going to be so fun to make...and wear!

Artist Trading Cards (ATCs)

I have just discovered the art of  Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) - and have really become interested in them!
I have done some research on them to find out as much about them as I can :-)
And browsing websites looking at the different beautiful artwork......

Artist trading cards (or ATC's):
They are miniature works of art about the same size as modern trading cards or baseball cards.  They  are 212 by 312 inches in size _ small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.
Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.), stamps, ink, metals or fiber.  Any kind of materials.  The cards are usually traded or exchanged.

To make this ATC card....I started out by embossing it with clear embossing powder using the flower stamp from the A Flowering Bunch stamp set.
I then used Sponge Daubers and sponged on the Ink colors Cranberry, Indian Corn Blue & Cotton Candy.
I added Liquid Glass to the center of the main flower and also to the flower from the Stella Complements.
I punched out a couple of hearts, a star and a butterfly and attached them with foam dots to give them a little "pop" out.
I cut out the word Beautiful and glued that on.

Supplies Used:
CTMH Exclusive Inks Cranberry, Indian Corn Blue & Cotton Candy
CTMH Stella Complements
CTMH Liquid Glass
CTMH papers from the Dream Pop Paper Collection, the Chantilly Paper Collection & the For Always Paper Collection
Sponge Daubers

My 1st attempt at doing the "Masking" technique

My very first attempt at using the "Mask" technique.
Didn't do the best :(      It is something that I will need to practice doing......
Did not do a very good job on adding the leaves and stems...messed that up.

I stamped my main flower on my card.  Then I stamped it again on a scrap piece of paper.  I cut that out and laid it over my main flower, then I stamped the flower again to the left side...and then again to the right side.
So it looks like the two side flowers are behind the front flower.

Supplies Used:
CTMH Topiary Exclusive Inks® Inkpad & Marker Set 
CTMH Indian Corn Blue Exclusive Inks® Inkpad & Marker Set
CTMH Cotton Candy Exclusive Inks® Inkpad & Marker Set
CTMH Cranberry Exclusive Inks® Inkpad & Marker Set
CTMH A Flowering Bunch Stamp Set
