Friend Card Using CTMH New Distressed Oxide Inks with other products

Hello Friends!  I hope life is treating you good.  Tuesday night Hurricane Sally was heading between my granddaughters house (Alabama) and my daughters house (Florida), in two different states.  It managed to veer off and went to both of their houses.  Both of their families are fine.  I have been so stressed.  2020 is turning out to be the worst year ever.  I am sure a lot of you probably feel the same way.  I am grateful to be alive; but enough is enough.

We have two new CTMH Idea books that started Sept 1, 2020 with lots of fabulous new products.  I have placed several orders and have much more to purchase.  Wait till you see the new colors that are available.  I always hate to see older colors retire; but it is fun to use new colors too.

This is my first time to try one of our new products, CTMH Distressed Oxide Ink.  They are fabulous to work with.  CTMH has 14 different colors available.  I bought a few of the Distressed Oxide inks ahead of time; so I could practice with them and see if I could use them, due to being allergic to a lot of ink smells.  I chose my favorite colors that were available at that time. CTMH sold out of the Distress Oxide Inks; but they should be back in stock again soon.

Most of the products I used are from CTMH except the background die on front,  the die for the sentiment inside and three of the Distressed Oxide Inks.  I had to have that background die when I saw someone creating with it.  It really looks good with the new Distress Oxide Inks.

I used CTMH A Million Little Things Stamp set for the flower, and sentiment inside.  I used CTMH Winged Wishes Stamp and thin cuts for the butterfly and the sentiment on front.  I used the fabulous CTMH Brushed paper inside.  It was a pack that was brought back temporarily; and I love it.  I only embellished it with the little butterfly and sentiment; as I don't think it needs anything else.
