Close to My Heart Scandinavian Wishes Stamp of the Month

October 27, 2013

Hello again.

It is that time of the week again for another post and I have gone back to Split Coast Stampers to get some more inspiration for a card.  There are so many great tutorials there that it is going to take me quite a while to go through them all.  I am enjoying the challenge of stretching myself to do something different every week.

This week I have done a side spring card and the link to the tutorial is here:

I have discovered that it is a lot easier to practice with scrap paper first, otherwise a lot of cardstock can be wasted.  It took me some time to work it out, but once I did it did not take me long to complete the card.

I have used the Close to My Heart Scandinavian Wishes Stamp of the Month set.  This is a very cute and whimsical stamp set and a lot of the stamps will be really useful for other occasions – like the heart is going to be really good for Valentine’s Day.  This stamp set is only $5 when you spend $75.  You only have a few days left to purchase this gorgeous stamp set so be in quick to get your order here.

Here is my card:

Side Spring  card using CTMH Shine and Sparkle set and Scandinavian Wishes SOTM

 

Materials used:

Daisy White Cardstock

Ruby Cardstock

Ruby Ink

Sparkle and Shine paper

Cricut – Art Philosophy cartridge

My Acrylix Scandinavian Wishes Stamp set

White Bakers Twine

Tombow adhesive

Liquid Glass adhesive.

I have cut out the heart according to the size of the stamp – 2 inches and then for the background heart in ruby cardstock I have cut it at 2.25 inches.

I am loving the Sparkle and Shine papers from the Holidays from the Heart Catalogue as they are beautiful colours and have a lovely sheen to them.  The photo does not do justice to the beautiful silver coloured paper.

I hope that you enjoy my latest efforts and I would love to see what you can do with this card.

Now I have to put my thinking cap on again as we have another blog hop coming up for next month’s Stamp of the Month set – Illuminate.  I was really impressed with all the participants entries and it was very impressive going through all the blogs.  CTMH really does make it easy to be so creative and inventive.

Happy Crafting.
