This month’s theme and monthly prize

Anything Goes + a stamp

Feb 25 –  Mar 4

February is quickly coming to a close!   I’ve had a crafty week and looking forward to sitting and creating some more ideas I have.  I hope you have time to create as well and will be joining our Anything Goes heARTful stamping challenge!  We’re a great place to get and share some card making ideas for your rubber stamped cards.  

If this is your first visit here, there are normally weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing.   February’s prize winner will receive this package of beautiful Chelsea Gardens dots from CTMH.

This Week’s Inspiration

Cyndi created a fabulous masculine card this week using CTMH’s Nature’s Wish.  She die cut out a circle so that the deer, which she watercolored, is on the inside of the card.  It’s such a great look and I love the circle border on the outside of the “window”.  Its gorgeous without looking “fru fru”.

Debi, from That Might Look Good on a Card,  is back this week!  I always look forward to seeing what type of fabulous fold she will have…and she never fails!!  Debi used my favorite paper pack and stamp set from CTMH’s Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog called Chelsea Gardens.  She mainly used the matching set of complements that CTMH carries – these are designed for scrapbooking but as you can see, they are also perfect for cardmaking!

We’ve had a real heat wave (along with a LOT of rain!) here in Northern Virginia and my daffodils have begun to bloom!  It’s crazy!  But they inspired the color scheme of this week’s card.  That and this card from Vicki Wizniuk … I was obsessed with her little flowers and she shared her secrets!  The sentiment and flower images are from CTMH’s February Stamp of the Month called Sunny Thoughts.  The flowers were rock n rolled through Canary and then Goldrush – the key is to stamp the flowers individually and then cut and layer them.  Don’t they look wonderful hanging over the edge?  I used CMTH’s banner thin cut die.
