heARTful stamping challenge – LOVE


This week’s theme and monthly prize

LOVE + a stamp

Feb 12 – Feb 19

This week’s heARTful stamping Challenge is to show us a papercrafting project that is all about LOVE…but please be sure to use  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 have been working on becoming more “organized” as I start my CTMH business (I’ve been stamping over 11 years now!) and I came across this new and uncut rubber cling set I have that is perfect for this month..  February’s random prize winner will receive this rubber stamp set …

This Week’s Inspiration

It’s been a busy week for me at school and I still want to make homemade Valentines for my Kindergartners this weekend – I need to make 25!  yikes.  That meant for this week’s challenge I needed some fast inspiration and I found it at CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #208.  When I saw the sketch and some of the design teams’ work – I had an idea to use Charming Cascades from CTMH.  I always love the emboss resist technique and it worked perfectly here.

Close to my Heart
supplies: Charming Cascades stamp set, Sending Smiles (Flower Market cricut bundle stamp set),  Raspberry, Black and White Daisy cardstock, Ranger Clear Super fine embossing powder – CTMH; Blush, Grapefruit and Cherry Splash – a|s, watercolor paper – walmart


Since I was in a rush to complete two cards for this week’s heARTful stamping challenge, I turned to a second Sketch Challenge I found at Freshly Made Sketches.  I took a little more liberty in this sketch layout and used a scrap of Gold Embossed vellum from CTMH’s Rustic Home Fundamentals paper pack instead of two smaller, fishtail banners.  I love how this card turned out!  The colors are inspired by Becca Whitham, another CTMH consultant I recently stumbled upon.  I love that CTMH offers Cardmaking Kits that include papers, a stamp set and accessories, like this Here For You kit.

On a personal note, I’m super excited to share with you that I reached all three levels of CTMH’s Straight to the Top incentives for new consultants.  They have another great new sign up special and if you’d like to join me on this exciting crafting journey, be sure to email me with any questions you have.  I’d love to have you as part of my team!!
