This month’s theme and monthly prize
Anything Goes + a stamp
Jun 25 – Jul 2
School is finally out and this past week was super busy for me! It’s everyone’s favorite challenge for this week’s heARTful stamping challenge – Anything Goes.
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
Debi is back this week with an adorable “Peek a Boo” type of card! She used this CTMH’s Stamp of the Month, Hello Foxy, and their new Prickly Pear papers. You can see more shots of Debi’s sweet rubber stamped card over on her blog, That Might Look Good on a Card.
supplies: Hello Foxy – June STOM, Prickly Pear paper
I held a 10 rubber stamped card workshop yesterday (round 2 plus a Fun Folds class are happening this upcoming week so if you are coming – don’t look!) and this was one of the cards we made. Debi used the fox image (there are 3 cute ones in the current Stamp of the Month) but for my card I used the flowers from CTMH’s Hello Foxy. I have a “thing” for Kraft cardstock and just got Close To My Heart’s Kraft paper during their latest sale…all cardstock packs are on sale for 25% off through the end of June! I love adding banner tags to my cards because it’s a great way to use up paper scraps!
supplies: Hello Foxy, June STOM, Kraft cardstock, Hello Lovely cardstock (retired)
Here is the birthday card I made for my husband this week – I was a little “stuck” on where to get started but I had just received my new Workshop Your Way (WYW) Let’s Party cardmaking kit (these are great time savers that CTMH offers – a stamp set with assorted papers and card ideas you download for free!). I love the open type sentiment and those banners are neat too. I turned to my latest how-to book Original Cards Confidence Program (Close To My Heart is retiring these but I love having a book full of card making ideas) and found this easy layout. It’s was perfect for using up my Sugar Rush paper scraps too! pst….Sea Glass is retiring next month and that really makes me sad. It’s been my go-to blue ink of late!
