heARTful stamping challenge – anything goes!


This month’s theme and monthly prize

Anything Goes + a stamp

May 28 – Jun 4

Thank you for stopping by and checking out this week’s heARTful stamping challenge.  woo hoo!  This week we’re back with an Anything Goes challenge.   Normally throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.  There are weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing.  You can also see last week’s heARTful stamping challenge which goes until Sunday night, midnight, right here.

It seemed fitting, with us celebrating Mother’s Day this month,  to feature the Hello Lovely Compliments pack from CTMH.  These “stickers” are great for both cardmaking and scrapbooking!  The gold words, hearts and arrows in the lower left corner are raised so they really are quite lovely.

This Week’s Inspiration

I was short on crafting time this week but when I have a few minutes, I like to start a card and then keep working on it in bits and pieces.  I found this week’s sketch #289 over at Freshly Made Sketches to be a great starting point!  I love the different flowers that come in CTMH’s Shower Flowers set and they are now on the Going Soon! section of the website…  Even though this is a CAS card, I feel like it has a lot going on.

I did one of my favorite techniques – emboss resist and CTMH’s watercolors are perfect for that.  I also inked and then lightly spritzed my flower images before stamping them on watercolor paper for a real watercolored look.

supplies: Shower Flowers stamp set, Artistry and Flower Market Cricut packages (stamp sets are included in these kits!), Watercolor Paints, Sweet Leaf, Lemon, Sorbet and Pixie ink


Debi is back this week with a Father’s Day card that will blow your mind!  And, really impress your dad!  🙂  All of these great papers and stamps come from CTMH’s Workshops Your Way Father’s Day Cardmaking Kit.  I think they are such a great deal and you can find more details on Debi’s blog:  That Might Look Good on a Card.

These are CTMH’s Jack papers – they are great for the boys and men in your life!
