Wagon full or Smiles!!

Here is my latest !!

Using stamp set called "Smiles" from Close To My Heart
I created this cute little wagon to hold 3 x 3 cards. You can add envelopes, there is enough room.
I just thought it was cute just like this once I got done.

Basically, you get a piece of cardstock sized 4.5" x 6.25"
Score all sides in 1.5"
the strip around the base is 1" x 12", you will end up having overlap, you can just trim that down.
I embossed that strip with the Sizzix Boutique.
Cut a piece of patterned paper sized 1" x 12" and used my corner rounder to make a scalloped edge. This went around the top outside of the wagon.

Made my cards by embossing each one......I cut a circle sized 1 inch, then used my Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge to do the scallop circle sized 1.25" for each card and wagon wheel.

I colored the images with the waterbrush and my ink pads.

Colors used:

CTMH Exclusive Inks:
Tulip, Juniper and Stazon Ink
all papers are from CTMH

Welcome!! Trust Your Heart.....

I decided to start a separate blog, strictly for my CTMH artwork, sales, special offers and techniques.
That is all you find here. I hope you will become a follower! I love visitors =}

Here is my first artwork post to "Stampin Clearly"

This is the Valentine Card I gave to my Hubby!!

I used the Sizzix Boutique to ebmoss the actual card base. I distressed the edges of the white cardstock that has random stamping inTulip. I cut a chipboard shape out using my Cricut and the covered it with Juniper Cardstock trimmed and sanded it to fit perfectly.

The main heart is from the new "B Love" set in the CTMH Spring 2010 Catalog/Idea Book. And the smaller heart is from "Love Language"
