Today on Close To My Heart’s blog, they talked about how the National Stamping Month Special–From the Heart–is designed to be versatile and let you be the artist. While the From the Heart Stamp Set is definitely a beautiful set–and one which you would use over and over again–these cards can make some pretty amazing holiday cards, too!
Here is my spin on these beautiful From the Heart Slider Cards using the *NEW* Little Saint Nick Stamp Set along with the *NEW* Ho, Ho, Ho Stamp. I absolutely love the Little Saint Nick image. You may recall I used him in a Circle Accordion Card I shared a few weeks ago. He’s so cute and easy to and color. I used our ShinHan Markers in Barely Beige, Tender Pink and Carmine.
And of course, I couldn’t resist using our Clear Shimmer Brush on his hat trim for a little shine and sparkle!

Plus, I also used our *NEW* Cricut Flower Market Collectionto cut out the scalloped flower images. It pairs so nicely with the flowers in the stamped image!
And don’t forget to add a special touch to your envelopes, too! I used the same stamp image but only inked and stamped the flowers to decorate the corners of the envelopes. Cute, right?
If you weren’t able to stamp today in celebration of National Stamping Day–no worries! National Stamping Month has 30 days; so you have 13 more days to celebrate. That also means you only have 13 more days to grab your very own Create Kindness Kit before it’s gone! Get your Create Kindness Kit by visiting MY ONLINE CTMH STORE.
Did you know that September is National Stamping Month? All month long you can celebrate by stamping beautiful creations. And if you really want to get into the spirit, you can celebrate on Saturday, September 17th–that’s National Stamping Day!
You know what would be a great way to celebrate? You could snag one of the exclusive *NEW* kits CTMH designed specifically for this month!
Can you believe there are only a few more days of National Stamping Month? October will be here next week! I can’t believe it. If you haven’t had a chance to get your hands on one (or all 3!) of CTMH’s exclusive National Stamping Month Stamp Sets–Hello, Life, don’t delay much longer.
These stamps sets pair together so well. Even though they each were designed with a specific type of crafting in mind (cardmaking, scrapbooking and pocket scrapbooking) the images contained in each set are perfect complements to each other.
Tomorrow is National Swap Ideas Day! It’s a day that encourages people to share creative or helpful ideas–perfect for us crafters, right?!? So I thought it’d be fun to do an online card swap. We can virtually swap card projects with each other. Sounds fun, right? Here is my ‘swap’ for you: Continue reading →
A fun little tag perfect for adding to a yummy treat. Yesterday, my kids had their birthday celebration at school. To stay in theme (we’re taking them to Disneyland for their birthday) I baked up some Mickey Mouse Sugar Cookies. We then decorated the ears with some candy melts to finish off the theme.
Both have larger class sizes this year (full classes, actually!) so we had to make 50 cookies to have enough for all the kids and the teachers. Talk about a labor of love 🙂
For the tag, I flipped the “Yum” image over and stamped with what should be the back side of the stamp to create the polka dots. I cleaned the image, flipped it over and then stamped the “Yum” sentiment. Finally, to color in the center of the image, I inked up a Sponge Dauberwith Honey ink and simply pressed it in the center of the stamped yum image.
