CTMH Smitten + You Are Enough

What a combination of product! The cutsey Close To My Heart Valentine promotion called Smitten, paired up with their elegant You Are Enough paper pack. The latter is still available — you can find it in the Online Only section. I wanted to show you how well these stamps can pair with other papers and not just the Valentine papers featured in the bundle. Of course, they look great with those too! In case you missed it, I shared some cards featuring the Smitten bundle here.

These cards came together so quickly! First of all, the layout is quite simple. You can purchase the matching thin cuts with this stamp set if you hate to fussy cut — I found them quite easy though to hand cut out. Next, I sponged on some light blue ink. You could use CTMH’s ink like Capri or Glacier for this. CTMH also now carries Distress Oxide Inks and those tend to blend quite easily too. In this card I used Peacock Feathers. I just popped the images to complete the fun look.

I ended up giving the sewing machine card to my teacher as a thank you for my birthday flowers and lunch. She is just beginning to take up quilting and has a new sewing machine. I love giving people cards with a personalized image/sentiment/feeling.

I hope this inspires you to take another look at the Smitten set — especially if you purchased it!
