heARTful stamping challenge – Anything Goes!

CTMH Bunches of Love | one layer card


This month’s theme and monthly prize

Anything Goes + a stamp

 Aug 26 – Sep 2

It’s hard to believe that August is almost over! My husband and I just returned from a one day beach trip…4 hours drive there, 4 hours on the beach and a 3 hour drive back. I’m a little sunburned, tired but very happy. Thanks for stopping by to check out this week’s 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. We’ve had an unusual month so far though because I spent a lot of time at my parent’s home in Northern Wisconsin prior to and following my mom’s open heart surgery. This month’s prize winner will receive a roll of CTMH’s Silver sparkle trim. It is so pretty and will be perfect for your holiday cardmaking!

Since it’s the last week of the month, Debi has again tickled me with a wonderful creation using Close To My Heart products. You know what’s even better?! She used a cute new little set called Hedge-hugs…it will be available starting 1 September and it’s in the Holiday Expressions catalog. You can find out more about Debi’s card on her blog called, That Might Look Good on a Card

I also had a chance to play with some new stamp sets. I am predicting that this set called Bunches of Love “may” become my favorite in the new CTMH Holiday Expressions catalog. Tee hee, at least for this week! I played with some of CTMH’s new ink colors too that are going LIVE on 1 September. Here I used Peach and Sage. I love the new Sage color! This card is actually a one layer card – it was so quick and easy. I just repeatedly stamped the main image in Linen and then came in with the accent pieces in color. The sentiment is also part of the set! This is truly one stamp set that you don’t need “more” of anything else to make a card.

psst! All this talk about a new catalog coming out 1 September, that means CTMH has to clear out the “old” stuff so there are some amazing deals you don’t want to miss in their Clearance Section. Here is just a tiny sampling!

I hope you join us!
