heARTful stamping challenge – Anything Goes


This week’s theme and monthly prize

ALL this month we’ve been having an  Anything Goes heARTful stamping Challenge.   

Share any stamped project you are working on this week – please no digital images.  There are weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing. December’s prize winner will receive this brand new stamp set from my stash…


This Week’s Inspiration

I had some “grand” plans on what I wanted to make for my fellow Kindergarten teachers, but in the end time was short and I had to pull something together quickly.  I’ve always loved Amuse Studio’s little gift bags (especially in Kraft!) and I was inspired to gold emboss my images to dress things up a bit.  Love the results.  They made wonderful holders for my assorted Christmas chocolates.


supplies: Seasons – retired CTMH, kraft bags, gold embossing powder- amusestudio, red ink – other


I’ve been playing a little more with Thoughtful Flowers – which is CTMH’s Stamp of the Month.    That means you can buy it out right or with a qualifying order, get it for just $5!  I combined it with some items I have from my Amuse Studio days – but CTMH has some pretty cool font word dies that I look forward to trying out.  Love how this CAS birthday card turned out!

CTMH, Stamp of the Month

supplies: Thoughtful Flowers – CTMH;   Happy die, cardstock  – amusestudio


One of my first stamp sets was Hello, Winter from CTMH’s Winter Expressions catalog.  It retires on Dec 31 – so don’t miss out on getting some of these wonderful stamp images and papers before they disappear!  I did some easy masking to overlay the holly on the sled – I was inspired by a neighbor’s sled vignette by their front door!  This was a super easy CAS card to achieve.

  1. TY for correcting challenge linky for extension end date. Merry Christmas! Apple pie is baked. Hubby is prepping the herbs (rosemary & thyme) from our garden & slicing the onions. Hubby will make the Herb Crusted Roast Beef. I’m making the Green Bean Casserole. First time making the Green Bean Casserole with fresh green beans & Panko bread crumbs instead of can of green beans & can of Durkee Onions.

  2. We usually have ham but decided to splurge on Roast Beef which we had had only one other holiday dinner. The Roast Beef recipe is from epicurious.com. The Green Bean Casserole was delicious also. Recipe is from Kikkoman.com.
