One Day at a Time

 I just recently received the 6 new stickles colors from Cutters Creek, and oh my are they ever beautiful. If you haven't ordered yours yet, you do not want to miss out on these. The colors are beautiful and will be great for the upcoming holiday crafting season. Now just to tempt you just a bit more, I made a color chart for you so you could experience the colors yourself.
Aren't they beautiful???? Now, are you ready for a project that uses some of these colors? Great because I have one for you!
I started with a piece of kraft card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. My patterned paper is from a My Minds Eye Bluebell paper pad that I received from the 6" x 6" paper pad club that I belong to through the Cutters Creek Yahoo Group. Kim usually has several clubs running at once. She does her best to keep the cost down to around $20. They are billed the same day each month and at the end if you have paid on time you receive a free gift. Just join the Cutters Creek Yahoo Group to find out more. I will spill a secret and let you all know that Kim has just opened sign ups for the new Distress Glitter club. Interested??? Join the group for details. Now back to the card! I used a scalloped chipboard oval from Want 2 Scrap (a free gift from a club!). I stained it with some Broken China Distress Stain (another club product!). I then sprayed it with some Sea Glass Glimmer Mist. Once it was dried I used the Ice Blue Stickles on the lacy scallop edges. I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. They were colored with Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. I used the Ice Blue Stickles for the center of my flowers and to add some sparkle to my butterfly. The heart on the flower pot I used the Cranberry Stickles. I used some Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive to adhere my  scallop to my card and to adhere my images to the oval. My tickets are inked with some Tim Holtz distress ink in Faded Jeans and Tumbled Glass. To finish the card I stamped my sentiment with some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and added some rhinestone bling. Now don't forget to join the Cutters Creek Yahoo Group to find out more about the clubs and all the products in the store. You won't regret it. It is a great way to add to your crafting supply without breaking the budget!!
