This month’s theme and monthly prize
Anything Goes + a stamp
April 22 – 29
April is flying by! I spent the weekend catching up on yard work but I also found time to stamp! woohoo…. Welcome to this week’s new 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. I happened to end up with an extra CTMH Birthday Time stamp set from last month so one lucky winner will receive this in April!
This Week’s Inspiration
It’s not too early to start thinking of Mother’s Day cards! In fact, my mid-month tutorial was a Mother’s Day themed card and Cyndi was thinking the same idea! Cyndi stamped and glittered the large butterfly from CTMH’s Chelsea Gardens for cardmaking. She did fussy cut it (the matching thin cut dies are all sold out – this was a super popular set but it’s easy to cut out too!) The springy paper is retired but it’s CTMH’s Dreamin Big paper.

My card is heavily inspired by Kara Vrabel from K and R Designs. I loved how she off sets her focal panel with a black panel – it really makes the card pop! For my take I used CTMH’s Chelsea Gardens for scrapbooking stamp set. This color scheme looks totally different than the card I shared on Friday! My sentiment is from CTMH’s Thoughtful Bird set in their base catalog. I had a small “oops” on my leaf – plus I felt the bottom of the card was off balance so I just stamped this butterfly from the Chelsea Gardens cardmaking stamp set in black. Perfect!
