heARTful stamping challenge – cute!


This week’s theme and monthly prize

This week’s heARTful stamping Challenge is to show us something cute!  If you want, you can still enter last week’s challenge as well since it won’t close until 1/22 at midnight!  You can find it here.

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.  I figure with Valentine’s Day coming up soon (yeah, yeah…I know – don’t rush ahead!) this would be a fun Washi tape to add to your collection.  It’s called Everyday Life from Close To My Heart.

This Week’s Inspiration

Are you tired of CTMH’s new set called Some Kinda Wonderful?  I can’t get enough  these really cute little critters though.   It was one of my first stamp sets as a new Close To My Heart consultant so please bare with me!   This is one of the two projects we made at my recent Open House – you can check out my virtual event here (although the raffle is now closed).  I love this bright cheery paper – it’s also called Some Kinda Wonderful!

supplies: Some Kinda Wonderful stamp set and die bundle, Some Kinda Wonderful designer paper – CTMH; copic markers


HB2U – get it?!?  🙂  “Happy Birthday to You”.  Yes indeed, another cutie from the Some Kinda Wonderful stamp set in CTMH’s Seasonal Expressions catalog.  This paper happens to be the reverse side of the 12 x 12 paper from the card above.  Each time I have a hard time picking a favorite side!!  On the grey cardstock I stamped with one of the texture stamp sets included in the Cricut Flower Market digital collection and stamp/paper bundle available only through CTMH.  To check out the fox in this set, don’t miss this blog post from the other day.

 PLEASE help me spread the word on this challenge – I know there are a lot of great challenges out there each and every day!  So I do truly appreciate you stopping by and checking it out.  Really hoping to add to my design team in the near future – if you have CTMH stamps and are interested in doing a once a month “gig”, let me know!  

I hope you join us!

  1. Your turtle & bird cards fit the cute theme wonderfully. The turtle card reminds me of when my hubby saw a small turtle in the road as I was driving. We pulled over & he picked the small turtle up and placed it in the grass field across the road so it would be safer. The bird card reminds me of the 3 baby Robins I got to see & photograph several yrs ago that were born in a nest in a Mini Magnolia Tree in our backyard. I got to see the eggs before hatching, after they hatched, eyes unopened, being fed by the 2 adults, eyes opened and was lucky enough to see all 3 fly out of the nest (1 flew out first on one day & the other 2 flew out together the next day). They flew to our front yard where the adult mother Robin continued to care for them for quite some time.
