January 2019 Stamp of the Month - Card Captions

Each month at Close To My Heart - we have an EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5!! 

 What's even better - you can get more than 1 of these stamp sets at the $5 price with EVERY $50 CTMH purchase you place that month!!

This month, January 2019, we have a "Winner" of a stamp set ----- I introduce to you our "Card Captions" stamp set.  

What a WONDERFUL stamp set that can be used all year long & in years to come too!!  Take a look at this BEAUTIFUL collection!

I know I'll be using this stamp sets A LOT.....and this is a GREAT stamp set to do some "Stamp Surgery" on!

>>>Do you all KNOW what Stamp Surgery is???<<<
Stamp surgery is when I take my VERY SHARP micro-tip scissors...and cut apart the sayings in a stamp set, so I can have better placement of the image. 

So yes....I cut apart the Birthday Wishes saying - so that I could stamp it on top of each other vs. masking the words & trying to not get ink everywhere....LOL!!

Here's my card design using this stamp set. 

In case you haven't heard....CTMH released TODAY (Jan 1st) a BRAND NEW, beautiful Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea Book! That means we have LOTS of beautiful, new goodies to create with! 

Today, I am using the FUN-LOVING paper collection called "Something Fierce".  What a beautiful collection....and while the dinosaurs may stick out to you at will come to see the amazing VARIETY this paper collection offers us!!  I LOVE this paper collection!!

Let's take a closer look at the "Something Fierce" papers...and then we'll talk about my card creation. 

Let's take a close up look at this card.... IS a Gift Card holder!!!
A fellow consultant - Susie Sutton - was so GRACIOUS to share this adorable card design with all of us!!  How CLEVER this is!!!

The left side of the card that is glued down (make sure to only glue the OUTER edges of this piece!) - is 2 1/4" wide.  So that would make the other side ---that flips up and down --- 3 1/4" wide. 

 We created this card at one of my TEAM's our goal each meeting to create a card using the upcoming Stamp of the Month, so we have a sample to share with our papercrafting friends.  
One of "my girls" suggested we add a Decorative Thin Cut border to the left side...and that was the PERFECT finishing touch!!!

I also used our "Stitched Heart" thin cuts (metal dies) I'm not sure WHAT I would do without these heart die cuts!! They are the "perfect" touch to so many of my creations!! Love - LOVE these hearts!!

The Peacock Stitched Ribbon was the ONLY embellishment that I used on this card....and while it's not a Current item - it IS still AVAILABLE!! What's even better - it's in the CLEARANCE SECTION on my website!!

I hope you enjoyed this FUN card design!
