Heart 2 Heart Challenge: "New"

"New" can't apply any easier than at this time of the year with:
  • A NEW year
  • A NEW Idea Book and
  • NEW products!
Woohoo! It's definitely a great day to celebrate and share artwork using Close To My Heart products, while linking up to our weekly challenge at Heart 2 Heart. To participate all you have to do is head on over to the Heart 2 Heart Blog and connect with us at the bottom of the post. We love to see your artwork and are excited about your participation in 2018!

I'm totally thrilled to share this card with you and hope it brings some warmth on this VERY COLD DAY! Two product lines were incorporated into this card. 
The striped paper comes from "Stargazer" which is centered around space and rockets, but also has some patterns that can be used for other themes. 
The sentiment is from the Stargazer - Cardmaking stamp set, which can be purchased with or without the Thin Cuts. Of course I'm anxious to create some additional artwork using other images in this adorable stamp set. Isn't it fun?!
And last, but definitely not least, those beautiful flower images... They are from this stamp set, Chelsea Gardens - Scrapbooking stamp set. To create the two-toned look, I stamped the image in Canary ink and then rolled the edges in Poppy. Fern was used for the leaf color. A few Black Dots were added as a finishing touch. 
As a Consultant, we have the privilege of obtaining new products about a month before they are released to the general public. This allows us to begin preparing our artwork and getting events scheduled so we are ready to share them with you when they debut on days like today! If you would like to know more about the Consultant Opportunity, you can find some information here or you are welcome to contact me with your interest and/or questions.
You have all month to link up to this challenge at Heart 2 Heart. I look forward to seeing your artwork there and wish you all the best in 2018! Happy New Year and happy creating!
