heARTful stamping challenge – animals


This week’s theme and monthly prize

animals + a stamp

Mar 5 – Mar 12

This week’s heARTful stamping Challenge is to create something using your animal stamps – cute or realistic.  It’s all critters so bugs can count too!  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 … I will be announcing the winner tomorrow, Monday Mar 6!

This Week’s Inspiration

Cyndi’s card is guaranteed “tu-tu” make you smile!!  Corny, I know – but isn’t this card sweet?  Cyndi did some amazing coloring and then fussy cut out this adorable little giraffe and hippo from CTMH’s Safari Ballet.  That hippo looks like she has on purple lipstick.  And, I love the extra little pop of bling to make this card extra girlie.

The card I’m sharing with you is actually happy mail that I was lucky enough to receive from Mischelle Smith. I have known Mischelle for over 11 years through our love of stamping and the internet…I have an inspiration board that her work always goes when I’m lucky enough to receive one of her works of wonder! Don’t miss out on her whole series of CTMH’s Some Kinda Wonderful here on her blog, Mischellemakes. She has an incredible eye and you won’t be disappointed!  The best part? This month CTMH has all dies on sale for 25% off and that includes stamp/die bundles like this set!  And the heart die Mischelle used as well… Close To My Heart

supplies:  Some Kinda Wonderful stamp/die bundle, Thin Cuts heart die, Gold Glitter cardstock

  1. Super duper animal creations! love the stamps!! Thanks for the challenge and may your week be blessed with all that God offers – just looking at His creation is a blessing – have fun!


  2. I see where you indicate that you will announce Feb winner tomorrow Mon 3/6. Hip-hip-hooray (that’s me bee-ing spontaneous) for the cute ballet critters. Like all things heart shaped and especially the dimension of the heart creation.
