I was inspired by some stamp sets I got from CTMH: You & Me, Enjoy Life, and Friendship Blessings and made some cards for friends.

I love this Olivia paper pack from CTMH – the cards came together so easily once I picked out the paper I’d use for the cards.  For the fleur-de-lis and the word “dreams,” I did a rock and roll effect.  I’ll have to do a video demo in a future blog post to show you what I mean, but the end result is a two-colored effect on the stamped image.  I hand cut around the stamps and wished I had a paper punch that coordinated with the stamps to make it easier!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
