Can I tell you how much I am loving this stamp set?




I wanted to make a very special card that I am actually going to send out to a loved one so I went out in search of a cool card pattern.  I found one on the Viva la Verve Sketches.



Here's my card.



I stayed pretty close to the sketch.  I have not used the Georgie paper pack much so I grabbed it to use for my card.  Look at all of the cool pattterns.

Now head over to my website, and buy this supercute stamp set and support Operation Smile while you do it!  I would love to sell enough stamp sets to buy a smile.  Thank you for visiting my blog.

By the way, I would love for you to leave me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Michelle Battitori's Blog.}

Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month 
Blog Hop! 




This month I am following {Catherine Nowak's Blog.}   We have 39 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.   If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.      

The February Stamp of the Month is entitled Balloon Animals (S1602) (Set of 13).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:






Isn't this just the cutest stamp set ever?  I am guessing it brings me back to my childhood.  I love it!

I kind of knew what I wanted to do with this stamp set but I started off my designing my checking Pinterest.  I didn't find anything that really grabbed me that would work with this stamp set, but it got my creative juices flowing.  I wanted something fun and whimsical with bright colors.  So I knew I was using our new Penelope paper pack and I knew that I wanted to bring in cuts with the Cricut.

Here is my card.


Do you like my cute little balloon monkey riding the balloon giraffe?  I have a lot going on but using the Penelope paper pack made it so easy to create.  The patterns are fun without being too matchy-matchy.

The Balloon Animals Stamp of the Month Stamp Set can be purchased for $17.95 or if you purchase $50 in CTMH products, you can add this stamp set to your order for an additional $5.  This stamp set is only available between February 1 – February 29, 2016. 

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to show me a little love by leaving me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Melissa Robinson's Blog} and see what she has made with this adorable stamp set.

I am linking this card with the Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

Welcome to February's Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop.    Who are the Stampers with an Attitude?  It is the Close to My Heart team lead by my fabulous upline, Kimberly Moss. This month I am following  {Jen Patrick.}  

This month we are spotlighting Easter artwork or the Charlotte Paper Pack.  Our blog hop is a circular hop.  You just click on the link to the next blog at the bottom of this post and go visit the next blog.  If you get lost, I have all of the participating blogs listed at the bottom of my post.  Hope you enjoy seeing what our team has made for you.

I have been wanting to use the stag image from Woodland Romance (D1683).  It is such a strong, elegant image and I thought it paired well with the Charlotte Paper Pack.

Here is my card:



I started designing this card without any idea of how the finished project was going to look.  I knew that I wanted to pull out my watercolors and do a watercolor wash on the paper I stamped the stag image on.  After the panel had tried, I splattered some more watercolors onto the panel.  Then I stamped the stag with Memento Ink.  Do you see the spots on the stag?  For some reason the watercolor splotches did not get covered with the black ink.  I was getting ready to re - stamp the stag, hoping that I matched it up well, when my grandson told me not to.  He liked it that way.

I went to Pinterest to find some inspiration and found a card I liked and decided to CAS it.  It is designed by Christy Fulk.

I love all of the patterned papers found in Charlotte and used almost all of them in my card.

I want to thank you for visiting my blog.  The next very talented artist for you to visit on our blog hop is {Catherine Nowak}.

    Welcome to the Close to My Heart 
    Seasonal Expressions 1 New Product Blog Hop




    This hop I am following {Melissa Robinson's Blog.}   We have 24 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in our Close to My Heart Seasonal Expressions 1 New Product Blog Hop.   If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.    Thank you for hopping through our Blog Hop.

    Seasonal Expressions 1 is our new mini catalog that went live on January 1st.  With this catalog, our new product line called Thin Cuts was debuted.  Using your favorite die cutting machine, Thin Cuts cuts out a coordinated stamp set, also found in this catalog.  No more fussy cutting or having to pull out the Cricut for one card.  Loving the versatility of this new product!

    I used our new Regatta Paper Pack, along with the My Anchor Stamp Set (C1642), and the My Anchor Thin Cuts (Z3202) to make my card.


    What do you think?  I always need a "So Sorry for your loss" card, so this will be placed in my stash until the next time I need one.

    The blue shadow on the light house was made with our watercolor pencils.  And before I forget, I used the Sketch Saturday Pattern # 395 and I am linking this post to that challenge.




    Thank you for visiting my blog.
