Here is this months EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5 with EVERY $50 CTMH purchase in MAY 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 this card design using this stamp set.
Let's check it out!   

I used our How-To-book ....Make It from Your Heart,vol 4, pattern #3 for this card design.  I ADORE using these very helpful idea books!

The paper collection that I used, is BRAND NEW and called "Sweet Girl"....take a look at these lovely colors! 

Let's take a look at some of the details of this card. 

There are SO MANY new Thin Cuts (metal dies) in our Seasonal Expression 2 (SE2) catalog, that was released today ...May 1st!! 

 I don't know if I have a favorite thin cut yet, but this Lace Border Thin Cut ranks near the top!! 

I "fussy cut" out the flower, from the MAY SOTM stamp set, and then colored it with our inks & watercolor brush.  Did you know??? You can put drops of reinker in the lid of the ink pad....and you have a pallet to grab color with your watercolor brush!!

If you look closely, you may see the clear shimmer on the flowers??  It's so hard to capture this with the camera!! 

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