Here is this months EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5 with EVERY $50 CTMH purchase in APRIL 2019. 

I LOVE that we have an EXCLUSIVE stamp set available at a DISCOUNT each & every month!!

What a FUN set, and I can't wait to see what my CTMH sisters create with this stamp set! :) I'm sure you saw some beautiful work already in this hop. :)    

Today, I chose to create this card design using this stamp set.
Let's check it out!   

I used a past WYW cardmaking kit sketch to create this card design. I also wanted to use a variety of paper packs in this creation.  

Can you see what 3 paper packs I used for this card???
(you can see the answer in the "recipe" listed below :) ) 

The color combination, came from our BELOVED "Love of Color" design book.  If you haven't taken a look at this book yet, you'll want to make SURE to do that!  This is a FABULOUS book, with great color combinations BUT...there are also so MANY pieces of beautiful artwork in here too! 

Let's take a look at some of the details of this card. 

For the top border, I used the silver shimmer trim & silver glitter gems to add some shine & sparkle. If you look'll also notice I used our Mint colored ink and stamped the border that's included in this BEAUTIFUL stamp set! 

I did cut out the butterfly, a few leaves & the flower.  I enjoy "fussy" cutting & our micro tip scissors make it an easy job to do! :) 

The shimmer on the flower, comes from our clear shimmer brush.  I just brushed it over of my Pixie colored flower ....and ta-da!  A glittery flower is the result :) 

Here is a list of all of the products I used...just in case I missed sharing that detail with you!!
