Here is a look at this month's EXCLUSIVE stamp set!! 💗

A pretty floral stamp set, but I believe my FAVORITE part of this stamp is the beautiful font lettering!!

Here is my card I designed using this stamp set.😍

What fun, to have a BRAND NEW, Make It From Your Heart How-To Book & if you know me...I had to pull it out and use it right away!!😊
This is card pattern #27 from our volume 5 book & was so EASY to create! 

Did you know---we, at CTMH, have a BRAND NEW catalog that was just released TODAY??  (check it out HERE)
The paper I used, was one of our BEAUTIFUL new papers, called "Hillside Cottage".  
Here's a look at this pretty paper pack! 

I chose to stamp the flower image in Intense Black Ink & then used my Tri-Blend Markers to color them in!!💗
If you haven't tried these markers...they are AMAZING!! There are 3 different colors in ONE marker--they are fabulous & make me feel like I really know how to color, because they blend so well! 

If you look closely, you may see that in the middle of the flowers, I went over that solid color with the BLACK Shimmer Brush. It's so pretty to see that sparkle in person!

Did you notice the subtle, dotted background on this card? 

I created that by stamped 2nd generation black. After the ink was dry---I came back with the lovely Ballerina - Liquid Pearl to add some fun dimension to this card. 

Another "quick addition" that adds SO MUCH---add stitched lines with your journaling pen! 😍 

My final touch was a touch of Blue Belle Shimmer Trim & a couple Blue Belle pearls.  I'm not sure WHY the camera didn't pick up the pretty blue color!

What a FUN, FUN card to create!!

  1. What a pretty card! I may have to CASE this one! Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Great card, I love how you used the smaller flowers!

  3. I love every little detail on this card. You did so many embellishments, and yet they are not overwhelming or take away from the flowers and sentiment. Perfection!

  4. So many great details! I love it!

  5. Such a cute card with a lot going on - thanks for pointing out all the little details!

  6. Gorgeous card. I love all of the details you added. I really like the background and the unique "pocket" shape of the paper cuts.

  7. So pretty, many fund details like the faux stitching, the liquid pearls!


Thanks for taking time to make a comment!
Blessings to you for a BEAUTIFUL day! :)
