heARTful stamping challenge – Paper Scraps

This month’s theme and monthly prize

Paper Scraps + a stamp

Aug 6 – Aug 12

I had my friend Juliet over and she always challenges me to use up my scraps.  So, I figured that would be a fun theme for this week’s heARTful stamping challenge!    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.

July’s prize winner will receive this Petite Perks stamp set from CTMH.  They are tiny – perfect for a tag or on a card.  I’ll announce the winner on Monday!

This Week’s Inspiration

Juliet had so much fun digging through my piles of paper scraps.  I love the colors she picked for her unicorn – it’s from CTMH’s Little Dreamer cardmaking stamp set.  She used those colors to pick her scraps – many of them from CTMH’s Little Dreamer paper packet but she also found some old a|s paper scraps that went along with it.  The sentiment and banner stamps are also from the Little Dreamer set.  I think Juliet’s doodling makes this card extra special and really adds to the look by tying everything together.

One of my favorite things about CTMH is their commitment to Operation Smile – a non profit organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates for children around the world.  Punny Pals is Close To My Heart’s special set where they will donate $7 from each stamp set sold.  Isn’t this little guy sweet?  Makes me happy just to look at the bright and cheerful card…and happy to use up those paper scraps that I have been hoarding!

While I had my Punny Pals stamp set out (and there are 13 cute critters to play with!), I decided to make one more card.  Of course it had to be slightly different…but again, it’s another great layout for using up paper scraps!  I also love the CAS design here…  In addition to the fun “pals” – there are some great “punny” sentiments to finish off your card.  I think I might add ” You’re TOAD-ally awesome” to this one.  tee hee…
