H2H Challenge–CTMH Cardstock

This week’s challenge is all about cardstock…Close To My Heart cardstock in particular! That means…no B&T (Background & Texture) Paper allowed…oh boy!

Well, that’s not a problem when you work with Close To My Heart’s My Acrylix Stamps and Exclusive Inks. I LOVE that Close To My Heart has 60 colors of Cardstock and coordinating Exclusive Inks…the possibilities are endless!

For my project this week, I chose to create a card using my FAVORITE product from Close To My Heart. Yes, you probably guessed it…the NEW Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge…exclusive to Close To My Heart!


All the layers except for the Goldrush stamped strip was cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. I also stamped and cut out by hand the flower and leaves.

I chose to use the Dreamin’ collection color combination of Chocolate, Goldrush & Pacifica with a touch of Garden Green. I used the My Acrylix ‘Unscripted’ Stamp Set.


Now…it’s your turn! I’d love to see what you create with this week’s fun challenge! Check out the details below…
