Take a peek at this vintage, exclusive Stamp set only available during April 2016!!!J

 I adore taking pictures, so this stamp set appealed to me right away. What a cute stamp set!! J 

The Regatta paper collection is our featured paper pack at Close To My Heart this month, so that is where my creative thinking to make this card began.  

I hadn't created a square card in a after looking at my WISHES How-To book (pattern "Just Right" on page 39) I decide THIS was the sketch I would create!

Take a look at my finished card... J

I am REALLY enjoying using the patterned papers in Regatta, and was able to pull in 4 of the different B&T Duo patterned papers (Background & Texture) into the design of this card! 

Take a look at the picture below for some of the detail....

The gold touches of shimmer trim (cut in 1/2) and the gold, sparkle Bling Gems, finished the card.  

In case you'd like to create your own card, I cut the 1" HEART Cricut shape from our Artiste Cricut collection, and used the heart on page 66 by using the Real Dial Size key (RDS). 

I hope you are enjoying this blog hop & are getting LOTS of ideas for when you have your OWN April Stamp of the Month (SOTM) stamp set in hand!  
Happy Crafting to EACH of you! J 

Now  its time to head over to Jen Rubio's  to see  what FABULOUS item she has created using this stamp set!  J
