Here is this months EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5 with EVERY $50 CTMH purchase in MARCH 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 a 4x6 pocket card with this stamp set. It fits PERFECTLY into our 4x6 Flip Flap, a great addition to ANY scrapbook page!   

I do want to challenge myself in the near future, to create a card with this "what seems to be a scrapbooking stamp set". However, I KNEW that this project was already on my mind...and I had to get it OFF my mind, before dreaming up another way to use this stamp set for a card. LOL!!  

Can you guess what paper pack I used for this card???

It's our paper collection that is our FEATURED paper collection in March at CTMH.  The name of it is "So Much Happy".  Look at those GORGEOUS COLORS!!

Let's take a look at some of the details of this card. 
Here is a break down of how I started creating this 4x6 card.

1. The Playful Scallops Embossing folder is PERFECT for this set. 
AND...check out the border stamp I stamped in Candy Apple!! :)

2. I wanted to have the "notebook" look on this out came our Decorative Border Thin Cuts!! (one of my FAVORITE items in our catalog!) 
Look at the "ripped" notebook edge this metal die created!! 

3. I stamped the "take note" stamp in Lagoon, but then took my ShinHan alcohol marker, and colored in the "note" with the Carmine color. 
The heart was a stamp, that I stamped in Candy Apple Ink onto Candy Apple cardstock.  

4. Those empty arrows needed something ;).....
our MINT Shimmer Brush came to the rescue!!

5. The finishing touches!! 
I used our sequin ribbon, and gold sequins from our Loose Sequin pack, to add the sparkle to this card. 
Oh...and we can't forget the sparkly Black Shimmer Trim!! I ADORE that this shimmer trim is adhesive backed!  

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