CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Crazy for Complements

Welcome to the January 2017 Technique Blog Hop!

For this month's CTMH Technique Blog Hop, we are featuring the use of our CTMH Complements. I can't wait to see all the creativity using these embellishments from everyone! If you are coming from Darlys Recker's Blog, you are in the correct spot.  This month we have approximately 10 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their ideas using this technique along with other CTMH products. I hope you enjoy checking out everyone's blog - all you have to do is click on the link at the bottom of everyone's post to get to the next blog.  Enjoy!

Let me start out by stating that this is just a sampling of the cards you can make using our Springtime Complements . I have so many more pieces to make more cards or use them for Scrapbook Pages.  Many of my ideas are inspired from Pinterest. 

The "Hello" Card is using the "Hello" Sticker from the sticker page. I used strips of papers from our new Paper Packets in the Seasonal Expression 1 Catalog and Sorbet Cardstock

The "My Love" Card is using the Gold & White chipboard pieces from the Springtime Complements. The base of the card is Black Cardstock , Sea Glass Cardstock  and our  Gold Glitter Paper

The "Smile" Card is using the White Chipboard "Smile" which I used our Sponge Daubers using the Thistle and Sapphire Stamp Pads. Can't forget the dot on the "i" for smile one of the stickers from the Springtime Complements with a little bling. Lastly, the base of the card is Thistle and Whisper Cardstock embossed using the Happy Thoughts Embossing Folder.

The "Heart" Card is using the Honeycomb Embossing Folder (retired). Inside the honeycombs, I placed the 5 tiny heart stickers from the Springtime Complements. I used our new Circle Thin Cuts placing a circle sticker from the complements. The heart stamped in the center is from Happy Hearts Stamp Set and sorbet ribbon from the Whimsey Ribbon Collection
