Random Act of Cardness -September Stamp of the Month Close To My Heart #CTMHToday I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s (S1909) Random Act of Cardness – September Stamp of the Month

This stamp set is full of sayings that are perfect to add to a card that you want to randomly send to someone just because. And really these are the best types of cards – the ones you are not expecting, it is not your birthday or some special occasion, but a card appears in your mail box out of the blue & well it can really change your day.

 

And I hope you love what I created with this stamp as I really enjoyed playing around with it.

The card I made is a simple design. I used the Flower Pattern Paper from the Every Little Thing Paper suite along with the a green pattern paper from the Hawthorn Paper Packet, the two work well together. I accent the design with the Build-a-Plaid stamp set, by using it as a border. And then I picked one of the sentiments from the Random Act of Cardness and added a White Acrylic Heart. This card would be perfect to send off to someone for no reason.Sending A Smile Handmade Card created with Close To My Heart Random Act of Cardness -September Stamp of the Month and CTMH Every Little Thing & Mix In Papers. https://maz.closetomyheart.com.au

Bear Hugs - July Stamp of the Month #CTMH maz.closetomyheart.com.auToday I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s (S1907) Bear Hugs – July Stamp of the Month

This stamp set is seriously cute. I just love Mumma bear holding bubba bear & the punny bear sayings that go with the stamp set.

 

And I hope you love what I created with this stamp as I really enjoyed playing around with it.

 

My first card I played on the word Bear to create Birthday & used the Into The Wild Paper Pack to create this sweet little scene card. The white frame was cut from the largest rectangle frame thin cut & Bear was cut from the alphabet thin cuts. Happy & Day came from Birthday Joy (from the Share the Joy special) stamp set.

For my next I used the Share the Joy Thin Cut & some stamps from the Bunches of Joy (from the Share the Joy special) stamp set as well as the flowers within the Bear Hugs – July Stamp of the Month stamp. I used the banner & cupcake to hide the baby bear. I used the yellow checked from Craft On paper suite.

To My Bestie - May Stamp of the Month #CTMH maz.closetomyheart.com.auToday I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s (S1905) To My Bestie – May Stamp of the Month

For my first card I pulled out one of the sentiments & balloons & mixed up the images from other stamp sets to create this Princess Birthday pop up shadow box card.

From this May Stamp of the Month set I used the saying (that one may normally use in the inside of the card) outside & the balloons inside , just peeking out behind the princess in this shadow box pop up card.

I used a lot of different stamps with the stamp of the month & loved how this card turned out.

My next card I went with something simple, using one of the border stamps, a flower & the Celebrate sentiment.

I used the large rectangle thin cut & cut it out of peach cardstock & paper from the National Scrapbooking Month – The World Is Yours & used Espresso Exclusive Ink to stamp the images. The scallop border stamped image looks great with the thin cut paper rectangles. The flower covers the join of the image. Quick & Simple.

Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s (S1901) Card Captions – January Stamp of the Month

This stamp set is full of Sentiments, perfect for cardmaking & there is just so many ways you can make these sentiments be used as part of a background design, the inside of your card or just to quickly add a little sentiment.

 

The first card I want to share is how quickly you can stamp one of the sentiments & add to a card for any occasion. I just stamped Happy Birthday onto a strip of card & added it to this cricket themed birthday card. I used Something Fierce Paper for the blue sky & green grass. The Cricket players were cut on my Cricut from a design I uploaded.

My next card shows how you can use the sayings as the background of the card.It is like creating your background paper but also adds a feature to the card design. On this version I have used a lighter colour  (Sage) & stamped the Thank You sentiments across the bottom & created used the word Fairy instead of Very from the Fairy Bread International stamp set.

I used the same idea on the next card design where I stamped Happy Birthday across the background. To soften the look I used vellum. I cut a small strip from the front of the card & added some Feels Like Home Paper to the inside & the beautiful Budding Peony stamp, uncoloured to complete the look.
