September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Random Act of Cardness

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month 
Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Wendy Kessler's blog}   We have 20 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 September Stamp of the Month is entitled Random Acts of Cardness (S1909) (Set of  17).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:

Close to My Heart has not one, but TWO catalogs that went live, and in the words of a customer, "Man, the products are CUTE".

I am a coffee lover so I just had to come up with a gift card holder using the September Stamp of the Month and Perk Up Stamp + Thin Cuts (Z3537).  And then I also had to turn it into a Shaker Card.  I just had to.  This is a super easy card to make.  It is called a Diagonal Double Pocket Card.  I found the tutorial here.

Here's my card:

I used Expresso Ink (Z2829) to stamp the coffee tumbler, the lid, and the sentiments.  The hearts are stamped in my new favorite color, Paprika (Z6515). The sleeve is stamped in Saffron Ink (Z2851)

The base of the card is made with our Hawthorn Paper Pack (X7249S)- I am loving this new fall paper and the plaid is especially my favorite.

The star circle comes from our Thin Cuts - Shaker Kit and Confetti (Z4309).  It is cut from Saffron Cardstock and do you see the little hearts in the Coffee Tumbler?  It is cut from Expresso Cardstock using the same thin cuts.  I added a few Loose Gold Sequins (Z4235) both inside and on the outside.

The September Stamp of the Month Stamp Set can be purchased for $18.95 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 September 1 – September 30, 2019.
