This month’s theme and monthly prize
Anything Goes + a stamp
Jul 30 – Aug 6
I goofed and thought last weekend was the last weekend of the month which would mean it’s time for an Anything Goes heARTful stamping challenge! But we have 5 weeks in July so that’s okay – we’ll just do it again! 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.
July’s prize winner will receive this Petite Perks stamp set from CTMH. They are tiny – perfect for a tag or on a card.
This Week’s Inspiration
I’ve been focusing on a lot of retiring CTMH stamp sets since the end of the month is almost here and then they will be gone forever; but, today I wanted to refocus on some neat stamps in the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog. I’ve had a lot of fun with the new Prickly Pear papers and cardmaking stamp set – I’ve used both of these in this card. Aren’t these sentiments so fun? They are part of the Prickly Pear cardmaking stamp set. There is also a Prickly Pear scrapbooking stamp set that has additional cacti, flowers and fun sentiments.
supplies: Prickly Pear cardmaking stamp set, Prickly Pear paper pack – CTMH. Other: copic markers, corner rounder
The Prickly Pear cardmaking stamp set from CTMH also includes this sweet Llama! eeck! This little guy really makes me smile. Once again I’ve used the Prickly Pear paper pack – I didn’t expect to fall in love with this paper like I did!. I CASEd a card in CTMH’s Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog. I have just 2 left if you are interested in getting one – you can get it free with the purchase of the new CTMH catalog that goes LIVE on 1 August. (Order via my right sidebar). I think this is the perfect CAS birthday card.

This is another card inspired by the CTMH catalog…I love how easy it is to copy or springboard off of the cards within the catalogs! It’s perfect for when your Mojo has left you… ha ha. I paired the retired Sugar Rush paper pack with the new Little Dreamer cardmaking stamp set. If you get my newsletter – you saw this stamp set used in a creative new way. It’s not too late to sign up for my FREE newsletter if you don’t already get it! (Sign up via left sidebar).
