My Project for the CTMH Virtual Convention

I received an "all-call" email requesting people who would be willing to teach for the Virtual Convention. I volunteered, but explained to Mary that I was new to CTMH, but that I was an experienced stamper/scrapbooker.  I was a little worried that some would find it odd, maybe even a little offensive that someone who has only been with CTMH less than two months would be teaching a Virtual Convention class. However, Mary was fine with the idea and I finally convinced myself to stop worrying about it (I always worry waaaayyy too much about what other people think.) 

Anyway, I've really been wanting to make a card using the "cracked glass" method and I just received a stamp set last week that I (finally) ordered, called "Happy Journey" that lent itself really well for this technique.  At least I think it does.  I made a card once before using this technique...years ago...and I LOVED the way it turned out.  I still have the card...just can't give it away.  Maybe I'll upload it to my blog in a few days (I'm gonna be out of town the next couple of days).  Ooooo, maybe....I can do a video tutorial on this.  Hmmmm....another one to ponder.

At any rate, I am quite pleased with the card. I used all CTMH products (except some of the tools) and they included the following:
My Reflections Passages Level 2 Paper Pack - #X7126B
"Happy Journey" MyAcrylix stamp set - #D1428
Marks Passages Epoxy Clip - #Z1318
Chocolate Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad - #Z2111
Desert Sand Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad - #Z2118
VersaMark Ink Pad - #Z891
StazOn Ink Pad - #Z888
Colonial White Brads - #Z1218
A side view to show the dimension.

This pic shows the "cracked glass" effect.  I wish the stamped sentiment had come out a little better though.  Oh well, I'll work on it.

  1. Hi Tammy! Just sent you the tutorial on the rolling tote and had to come "check you out"! LOL. Love your site! I'm now following. Love this card too. I agree, this stamp set made me think of the cracked glass technique too. We used to have a Christmas type one that was stained glass images. Tons of us used this technique on that too. Hopefully they'll be bringing back a replacement since it's now retired. Anywho - Love what you did - you'll be an awesome teacher for VC. Have a great day! Gloria
