May is FILLED with Fabulous specials here at Close To My Heart!!  Because there is SO MUCH goodness ;)....I wanted to share a card I created using this Month's Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Live, Laugh, Love stamp set.  

Take a look!  

I adore this month's stamp set....but I was running short on time, and wanted to make a "quick" card (that means not having to color in those precious little flowers inside these letters). WATERCOLOR PAINTS to the rescue! :)  

I colored a background, dried it with my craft heater, and then used Memento black ink to stamp the "Love" letters. 

Have you noticed what NEW paper collection I used?  If you haven't checked out the NEW ITEMS that arrived on May 1st at CTMH - you'll want to check in with your CTMH consultant OR  CLICK HERE to see the brand new Seasonal Expression 2 Idea Book! :) 

Look at the BEAUTIFUL colors of the Little Dreamer paper collection....and there are so many coordinating items to go with this set! 

I knew the card needed a bit more embellishing - and that's when I decided to stamp the flower included in this stamp set onto Blossom cardstock, and the leaves were stamped on Sea Glass.  I stamped them with Whisper ink & then cut them out with my handy, dandy Micro-top scissors

The Black dots - from our White & Black enamel dots collection & some White Twine, were just what was needed for the finishing touch! :) 

Here's a picture of the ENTIRE stamp set....and don't forget - this stamp set is ONLY AVAILABLE in MAY 2017!!!  

You can purchase this "Live, Laugh, Love" stamp set for the $17.95 retail price OR pay ONLY $5 when you place a $50 order with your CTMH consultant!! 

 I LOVE Bargains!!! Woot - woot!! :) :) 

That's all for today....thanks for stopping by, and I hope you were inspired to go CREATE something on your own! :) 


Now it’s time to Hop on over to my friendAndrea's  blog and see what beautiful, crafty item she has to share with us!
Happy Hopping and we’ll see you on the 9th next month, when the Joyful Stars team members will be sharing more artwork using Close To My Heart products!

  1. I love your card! The background is fantastic with this stamp set!

  2. The watercoloring is a great way to color the word stamp. Looks so pretty.

  3. Lovely card. I like how you split the letters into 2 rows.

  4. I love how you separated the letters to create a vertical panel--very clever! The watercoloring turned out beautifully and I love the Little Dreamer papers you used on the bottom panel. Great card!

  5. What a great idea to grab the watercolors to give the pop of color to the letters! I love how the stamp works so beautifully with the papers to make your card perfect.


Thanks for taking time to make a comment!
Blessings to you for a BEAUTIFUL day! :)
