CTMH Technique Blog Hop: Embellishment Envy

Welcome to the May Close To My Heart Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring our amazing embellishments!  (If you're already hopping, then you've arrived from Melissa's blog.  From here, you'll click to visit Judy Faye Garner's blog next.)
When I saw the new No Worries collection, I knew that I had to have it!  The scrapbooking Workshop Your Way is always a great bargain because it includes the paper pack, coordinating card stock, coordinating Complements, and several embellishments.  This collection includes the sequins and white burlap ribbon you see on my card.  To cut the "porthole" and anchor, I used the CTMH/Cricut Flower Market collection.  The anchor was cut at 1-1/2" on sanded Sapphire card stock.  The White Daisy circle was cut at 2" and the Kraft card stock at 2-1/2".  My sentiment is also from the Flower Market collection.
While silver, white, or gold shimmer trim would probably look great with this collection, I wanted a blue to augment the nautical feel.  I grabbed my Marine Blue Shin Han Twin Touch alcohol marker and some silver shimmer trim to create my own custom shimmer trim.  (Those of you who know me know that shimmer trim is my absolute favorite embellishment!)  I cut a piece longer than my card width of 4.25".  Then I held one end down with my finger and used the Marine Blue marker to color the shimmer trim.  I love how it turned out.

Thanks for checking out my card and embellishments.  I try to post to my blog at least once a week, so come back often for new ideas.  Do you have embellishment envy yet?  The great thing about CTMH's embellishments is that they are very reasonably priced.  Please leave me a comment, then click on her name to continue the hop to go see what Judy Faye Garner and the rest of the talented consultants have created!


  1. Oh my gosh! I LOVE this card, especially the masculine look it offers - with the perfectly chosen patterned paper - because I struggle with such designs. FABULOUS!

  2. That shimmer trim is perfect, I need to remember that I can color it! Cute card.
