This month’s theme and monthly prize
Die cuts + a stamp
May 21 – 28
Thank you for stopping by and checking out this week’s heARTful stamping challenge. I think – I hope! – this will be an easy challenge since it’s just to use a die cut. 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
Get ready for two CAS cards…that seems to be my “go to” style! tee hee…
I have quite a few thank you notes I have to send out for recent orders and I have been on a roll playing with the new Jack cardmaking stamp set in CTMH’s Seasonal Expressions 2 catty. It’s really a great outdoorsy, masculine stamp set that has a lot of accessories that will help you achieve quiet a few different looks. I guess that’s why I can stop! Here I paired him with some bright colors from the Some Kinda Wonderful designer paper pack – this is one of the Going Soon! products leftover from CTMH’s Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog. The “thank you” sentiment is also from the previous catalog and is one of my favorite collections: Hello Lovely. Be sure to check out this section before it’s too late!
supplies: Jack cardmaking stamp set, Hello Lovely stamp set (while supplies last), Some Kinda Wonderful paper pack (while supplies last), Raspberry ink, watercolor pencils, White Daisy paper – CTMH; other: tag die – a|s
This next card is one of my Live Beautifully workshop cards and I was inspired by another CTMH consultant who paired this die cut with the designer paper pack. I loved the variation of roses that everyone made at my workshop. Some roses had tinges of yellow that really looked amazing. you really can’t go wrong! I used my Flower Market Cricut download from CTMH (which I got as a hostess half priced item and you can too!) to cut out the rose. I think it really pairs well with the Live Beautifully patterned paper pack that CTMH is offering during May only. I will keep this card as is until I need a particular sentiment and then I can add that before I mail it out! Do you do that too?
supplies: Flower Market Cricut download/cartridge, Live Beautifully paper pack, White Daisy paper, Watercolor paint set
