heARTful stamping challenge – for a special someone


This week’s theme and monthly prize

For a Special Someone + a rubber stamp

Feb 5 – Feb 12

This week’s heARTful stamping Challenge is to show us a papercrafting project for someone special…but please be sure to use rubber stamps in your project!  You can find last week’s challenge 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 will announce January’s prize winner tomorrow.

This Week’s Inspiration

I didn’t really buy any CTMH stamps that were specifically for Valentine’s Day but I feel like I was still able to pull together these two stamps:  Charming Cascades and Some Kinda Wonderful (stamp/die bundle) to make the perfect Valentine.  I used Copic markers on the fox and left the brushstrokes showing to simulate fur.  I suppose it looks wierd in the photo but in real life, it’s okay!

CTMH cards
supplies: Charming Cascades stamp set, Some Kinda Wonderful bundle (stamps/dies), Pixie & Desert Sand inks, White Daisy cardstock – CTMH; Bubblegum cardstock – a|s, Copic markers


I almost called this week’s challenge “10 minute cards or less”.  I suppose it shows but as I was fooling around with different looks for this card – I just felt that this worked.  I used a square punch to make the perfect fishtail cut…have you seen that trick before?  It takes the guess work out of cutting!


CTMH cards

supplies:  Dreamin’ Big bundle (stamps/die), Pomegranate & Black ink, White Daisy cardstock – CTMH; Reverse Onyx polka dot paper, onyx mini sequins – a|s


YAY!  I have 2 volunteers for my Design Team search.  Would you like to make just one a card a month to have featured on my heARTful stamping challenge?  It’s kinda fun to see it and you’ll have a link back to your own personal blog.  If you have CTMH stamps and are interested in doing a once a month “gig”, let me know!  I have one more slot open 🙂

I hope you join us!

It’s simple to play along:

  • 2 entry limit

  1. Like the look of both cards. Not heard of using a square punch for a fishtail look so I’ll need to google it. You indicate + rubber stamp and I’m figuring you mean no digi but want to make sure because CTMH stamps are cling stamps and not sure of the rubber stamp term here. Please let us know in a comment.
