National Stamping Month Blog Hop

National Stamping Month 
Blog Hop

Create Kindness 
with Close To My Heart

Here's a closer look at all of the items included with this special.  You can visit my website to get an even better look at each stamp that is included.

The Create Kindness Card Kit ($46.95) contains all of the supplies needed to create 24 beautiful 3 x 3 handmade cards that you can use to brighten someone’s day!  Thanks to the pre-printed card bases, these cards come together in no time, leaving you more time to do something thoughtful for someone! (P.S. - The component parts are sold separately, but you're saving 15% with this special.)  

But wait, you can use these wonderful supplies to 
create so much more!  And that's what you'll see in this blog hop.

If you have never participated in a blog hop before, it is one big circle of creative ideas to see as you go from blog to blog.  If you are starting here, just look for the link at the end of my post to see where to go for the next stop.  If you are coming from Terrie Shortsleeve's blog, you are on the right path.

For my project, I worked on some scrapbook pages and some 5 1/2 x 4 1/4  sized cards using the supplies from this card kit.  Most of my workshops are scrapbooking workshops, so I wanted my scrapbook ladies to see the possibilities with the supplies from this kit.

With the Create Kindness stamps and cards, I used Pansy, Sea Glass, and Sea Glass Glitter paper.  The embellishments are the Enamel Glitter Duos - Purple Hearts and the new CTMH heart Thin Cuts.

For these layouts, I used Black, White Daisy, Raspberry, and Pixie cardstock and ShinHan Markers to color and shade the flowers.  Black Shimmer Trim was used to accent the page.  The little dots were punched from the shimmer trim.

The layouts here feature Sweet Leaf, Cocoa, Flaxen, and White Daisy cardstock.  The September stamp of the month, Blessed Beyond Measure , was also used with cocoa ink.  Die cuts were from both the Artbooking and Flower Market Cricut cartridges.

Then finally I made a few cards.  A small 3 x 3  kit card is mounted to the front of the larger card with a kit message on the top two cards.  The inside of the larger card can be used for writing a personal message.

You can get in on the Create Kindness special through your CTMH consultant, or visit  my website now.  If you don't have your own consultant, I would be happy help you.  Just contact me!

I am looking forward to seeing what the other consultants in this hop have created.  So join me as we venture on.  Our next stop on this blog hop is
 Paige Dolecki's blog.
