heARTful stamping challenge – masculine


This month’s theme and monthly prize

Masculine + a stamp

Jun 11 – Jun 18

Father’s Day is coming up – in fact, that’s my husband’s birthday so I am really in the “guy” card mode this week!  Fittingly, this week’s  heARTful stamping challenge is a masculine theme.  

Normally 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.  You can also see last week’s heARTful stamping challenge which goes until Sunday night, midnight, right here.

This Week’s Inspiration

I am a little late in presenting this, but my daughter’s boyfriend just graduated from Virginia Tech and here is the graduation card I made for him.  Those are Hokie colors!  I used the Way To Go stamp set from CTMH (which is retiring next month!) and was inspired by the birthday card I made here for my son.

supplies: Way To Go stamp set (retiring – while supplies last), Sunset ink (retired), Eggplant cardstock and ink, Piercing Tool (retiring!)


I needed to make some Father’s Day cards quickly this weekend and since I’m still a relatively “new” Close To My Heart consultant, I don’t have a “huge” stamp stash to pick from.  I did start to look at my two Circut Collections that I bought from CTMH (half priced as a hostess reward – woot woot!) and found this cool hexagon shape in the Artistry bundle.  Talk about being excited!  I’ve been coveting a hexagon die for FOREVER but just never broke down and got one…and now I can cut them in any size!  I love how this card turned out.  The sentiment is one from my CTMH Straight to the Top rewards.  Sadly, CTMH is retiring BOTH the Rustic Home Fundamentals and Memo Fundamentals next month and so they are available only while supplies last.

supplies: Cricut Artistry Collection, Rustic Home Fundamentals (retiring), Memo Fundamentals (retiring), Dreamin’ Big paper (retired), Desert Sand ink



I hope you join us!
