heARTful stamping challenge – anything goes!

CTMH Bunches of Love, Flower Market and Just Treats - September stamp of the month | one layer card


This month’s theme and monthly prize

Anything Goes + a stamp

 Sep 2 – Sep 9

Hello September! geesh…I’m not sure if I am ready for Pumpkin Spice and fall colors. I’m still wanting to enjoy the summer! How about you? Do you have a favorite season? 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. 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! I will announce a winner on Monday!

Cyndi found a great technique online that she is sharing with us here today. She heat embossed CTMH’s Heartfelt Thanks stamp which is as large as the front of a full card. Then Cyndi came in and added different colors over the embossed images using sponge daubers. What a pretty look! I can see trying this technique with smaller stamps and just filling up the whole card front – but it’s especially easy with this stamp set! The hearts are from one of CTMH’s complement packs.

The one good thing about it being September is that Close To My Heart’s Holiday Expressions catalog is now live. I brought this card to the Rock, Paper, Scissors Meet Up at our church today and it was a big hit. I think this stamp set, called Bunches of Love, will be one of my catalog favorites. Everyone loved it today! And it really was so easy, other than the fussy cutting, which I don’t mind. That little black diagonal border comes from September’s Stamp of the Month called Just Treats. It’s a great year round stamp set — ah, another good reason that it’s September! I am loving these two brand new CTMH ink colors – that Candy Apple just pops! By the way, it’s hard to believe this is the same stamp set, Bunches of Love, that I previewed here last week – these colors make it look completely different!
