CTMH New Product Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Close to my heart, new product Blog Hop!  This hop will feature products from our new November/ December book!  I hope you enjoy all of the beautiful artwork!

This hop will go around in a circle and will feature artwork from 21 different consultants.  If you get lost along the way just click here Melinda's blog to see the complete list and find your way back to where you were!  Have fun!

You should have arrived from Heather Hick's blog.  If you did, then you are in the right place and I hope you enjoyed what she had to show you!

It was hard for me to choose just one new product to show you but I finally decided on the Custom Ornament thin cuts!

I took a picture of the whole page so you could see how it looks in the book.

I have been having so much fun playing with it.  Today I am sharing 3 cards that I have made!  I hope you love them as much as I do!

The first card on the top left, I am featuring the new Cedar and pine paper pack.  I cut the Ornament out of Candy apple and then I cut another one out of silver glitter paper, which you see on the bottom left and I used the parts that punch out to decorate my ornament.  I also used a piece of silver glitter paper along side of the cedar and pine and then I stamped the Merry and Bright from the Whimsical Holiday stamp set.  Then I just added a little bling with 3 black dots.

The next card in using Sapphire card stock with a strip of the snow flake paper from the new Holly Jolly paper along with some white shimmer trim that I cut in half.  I cut the ornament out of White Daisy and trimmed it in the silver foil paper punch outs from my next card. I added 3 silver glitter dots.  The sentiment is from a up coming stamp set.

My third card I started by cutting just the ornament shape out of white daisy that I cut out using our large rectangular stitched thin cut.  I then attached that to a piece of silver foil paper that was cut 1/8 inch bigger.  I placed the decorative pieces of the thin cut in side the cut out piece so just those would cut out of the foil paper.  Then I attached that to a piece of Gold foil paper that was cut  another 1/8 inch bigger.  I also cut the ornament hanger piece out of the gold foil. The Merry Christmas is also from an upcoming stamp set, and I used gold embossing powder for that!

I hope you enjoyed my cards.  I will leave a complete list of links to the products I have used at the bottom of the post.  Now you are on to Melissa Robinson's blog.  I'm sure she has some amazing artwork to show you!

Have a great day and Happy Hopping!
