heARTful stamping challenge – Take me to the beach!


This month’s theme and monthly prize

Take me to the beach + a stamp

Jul 2 – Jul 9

Summer is in full swing now and what better way to kick of July’s heARTful stamping challenge?  So it’s a beach theme this weekNormally 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.

By the way – I forgot to mention the prize package for June – the winner will be announced tomorrow but it’s this gorgeous roll of White Shimmer trim!

This Week’s Inspiration

You haven’t seen Juliet’s work in a while but we got to spend a wonderful evening crafting together and I had so much fun.  While I had all my stamps laid out, Juliet got busy “playing” with some scraps I had from previous card kits.  I call her the scrap Queen.  She did a lovely job with the monochromatic look on CTMH’s Swirly Seashells – they are only available while supplies last and will not be in the new catalog.  Juliet finished the seashells off with some sparkle – Clear Shimmer Brush (think Wink of Stella!)

Cyndi is an avid scrapbooker so I am especially excited to have her on my design team.  She started off with the new CTMH Workshops Your Way No Worries scrapbooking kit.  I love these kits because they always include paper, sequins and some ribbon.  Then, depending on your choice, you can get Complements or a stamp set.  I love the results!  This is a perfect CAS card – the No Worries paper line is really beautiful and a must have for summer crafting and memory keeping.

I too played with one of the new No Worries stamp sets for cardmaking from CTMH.  You can find these items in their latest Seasonal Expressions 2 catty.  I repeatedly stamped the sentiment on kraft paper (I love how dark the CTMH kraft paper is – watermark ink really pops on it).  I think this card turned out perfectly since we’re getting ready to celebrate the Fourth of July here in the US.

  1. Wonderful DT beach theme creations. I like sea shells. Master bathroom has seashell/sand castle wallpaper. The one thing I miss about growing up on E coast of FL is the beach.
