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!
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.
