Each month, at Close To My Heart, we have an EXCLUSIVE stamp set available we call our "Stamp of the Month". 

Today, I'm sharing another card I created, using this BEAUTIFUL stamp set. 


First, if you don't know about our Stamp of the Month (SOTM) program...make sure to ask your CTMH Consultant!💗

Here is a look at this month's stamp set - "Reindeer Crossing". 

This stamp set can be yours for ONLY $5 with any $50 CTMH purchase during the month of December.

Let's chat about a few details on this card...

I used 3 of the stamp images, included in this stamp set.  I also used an ADDITIONAL stamp set, do you see it?? 

The "splotch" behind the 2 deer, comes from our "Strokes of an Artist" stamp set.  This is a stamp set, that I ALWAYS have in my stamp stash...and I use it quite often! 

Our NEWEST embossing all about SNOWFLAKES!

Look at the design this embossing folder creates.  I chose to run our White Daisy cardstock through the machine to get this snowflake background design. 

Oh the DETAIL & beauty this folder creates!! You'll notice I added a couple Julep colored glitter gems, to give some extra sparkle too. 

One of my FAVORITE, new items we carry at CTMH, are the NEW Tri-Blend alcohol markers.

  I didn't use them a lot on this card, but after stamping the pine cones with Memento ink pad, I colored & shaded them in with the Earth Brown & Dull Green markers.  You'l want to give them a try!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed my card & were inspired to create some of your own. 

Happy Crafting & have a LOVELY evening!!! 


Now it’s time to Hop on over to Betty's Blog   and see what BEAUTIFUL, crafty item she has to share with us today! :) 

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!    

Blessings to you for BEAUTIFUL day!!!
