Here we go!

Today, I choose to use one of the EXCLUSIVE stamp sets included in the Here's To You Special. :) Here is the card I created for today's hop.  

I always LOVE to pull out our How-To-Books at CTMH, to choose a card design - and today this card is from one of my favorite How-to's. :) 
You can find this card pattern in the Make It From Your Heart volume 4, pattern #16. 

The card I created, uses the "soon-to-be-retired" paper collection called Whimsy Fundamentals. This collection will be retiring at the end of August...take a peek!

I was also in the mood to do some heat embossing :)....and that led to the emboss resist technique on my card. Let's recap how this is done.... 

I LOVE to use Scotch Tape to mask off any words I don't want to ink this case, I put scotch tape over the scroll images at the top & bottom of this stamp set. 

After the scotch tape was applied, I inked it in my VersaMark ink....stamped on my 3" Linen cardstock square, and sprinkled the CLEAR embossing powder over top.  

I shook off the excess powder & used my heat tool to melt the embossing powder.  

Next, I sponged Sweet Leaf ink over top of the words...and ta-da...the words turned white! :) 

I also used some White Glitter paper to cut out these CUTE Stitched hearts!!  I LOVE our stiched metal dies! :) 

These 4 stamp sets  shown below, can ONLY be purchased in AUGUST...and are $9.95 each. Each of these sentiment images also coordinate with our ARTISTRY Cricut cartridge

OR....maybe you'd like to purchase all four of these stamp a 25% discount? 

Silly question....of COURSE - we ALL love DISCOUNTS! :)

  2. Gorgeous card! I love the heat embossing & inking. It really makes the words pop.

  3. I love the “happiness” of your card - it just brightens my day. The hearts placed around the sentiment are such a nice touch.
