Hello and welcome aboard our February “Cherishing Her” Stamp Of The Month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.
If you have arrived here from Creative Inspirations then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.
Today I would like to share with you a couple of creations which features Close To My Heart’s February Stamp of the Month. A good thing to note with this stamp of the month is that you have the option to purchase it in the English or American spellings. I’ll put the codes at the bottom for you.
Card Number 1
This card was created using the bunch of flowers stamp in Charcoal ink and repeating just the flowers section on a piece of white cardstock. Sometimes the leaves and flowers overlapped a little bit, which I didn’t mind.
The sentiment is stamped onto the square from the the centre of a piece from one of the Celebrate Today Subscription kits. But you could create a similar look with a white piece of card matted on an ombre coloured piece. The ‘mum’ I stampped in Lagoon Ink, whilst the rest is in Intense Black.
The strip of striped blue is a piece from the Celebrate Today papers, and some of the new Soft Pink Shimmer Trim. I raised the stamped background piece up with 3D foam tape off the card base. Some with the sentiment.
Cards Numbers 2 & 3
The card below uses the new Scallop Circle Thin Cut, some Silver Embellishing Thread, and some Cool Mint Stickles (in the centre of the flowers), combined again with the blue paper from Celebrate Today Collection. Plus this time some white Glitter Paper. The white background on the left card has been dry embossed with a floral embossing folder.
I made these two cards the other week at a consultant training day. They were designed by my friend Doreen. And are beautiful classic cards.
The last artwork I wish to leave you with is from the CTMH Art Studio. You can see this stamp set really works with any colour palette.
This exclusive Stamp of The Month is only available during July. It can be yours for just $9 with a qualifying order of $80 or for $34 if ordered separately from your CTMH consultant. Remember to get the English spelling make sure you use code S2002E. Without the E you’ll get the American ‘mom’.
If you do not have a consultant please contact me or place an order here.
I’d love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop Lauren’s CTMH Craftings.
