Close To My Heart Throwdown

I have been a miss for a few months, shame on me. I have been paper crafting. I participated in a Close To My Heart Challenge to create a two page layout, a three D project and cards. I was given the beautiful Florentine Workshop On The Go. The Work Shop On the Go comes with a paper pack, ribbon and a beautiful stamp set. All I had to add was a thought. Hmmmm look what I came up with.

  Here is a close up of the flowers. I used Twlight and Creme Brulee reinkers to color the mulberry flowers. I also used the reinker mixed with the acrylic paint to highlight the flowers.


I made charms. I used the Close To My Heart  cricut cartridge Art Philosphy hearts in two sizes, stamped, glued and liquid glass.
 Here is a tag using the cricut cartridge, stamp set, reinkers and water
.

Here is an accordian card with lots of spaces and places to tuck things, again the Art Philosphy cartridge was used.



Here are a few  gift cards  to look at.
                                               This is what I did with my scraps



 On this card I used the acrylic paint tinted with Twilight reinker , embossed with embossing folder, sanded then died with  Creme Brulee and Cocoa




Here are my 3 D projects
                                                                          Candles

I kept "WOW"-ing all the way through the post, then the link to the product page wasn't for you! This is amazing (better than) Consultant quality, but you aren't a Consultant??? These are absolutely beautiful!! I'm sure people would take classes to learn to do what you do - heck, I would! LOL Thank you for sharing.
