Disaster Relief Stamp Set: Stronger Together

Close To My Heart have prepared a stamp set designed specifically to benefit those affected by disasters, such as the recent hurricanes in the United States and the wildfires throughout the US and Canada. The stamp set is titled Stronger Together and features a variety of sentiments that can be used for comfort, encouragement, and more.
My Acrylix® Stronger Together (C1716)

This C-size set is available for purchase starting today; you can find it on my website using item number C1716.

Recommended My Acrylix® blocks:
1" × 1" (Y1000), 1" × 3½" (Y1002), 2" × 2" (Y1003), 3" × 3" (Y1006), 2" × 3½" (Y1009)

In order to be able to support multiple needs, CTMH have determined that proceeds from the sale of this set will be donated to the Red Cross, which provides relief efforts to multiple disasters, and which will allocate the funds to where they are needed most. In order to maximise the donation amount, this set will be non-commissionable. This way all proceeds—including the amount that would normally go toward paying commissions—will be donated to the Red Cross.

I can't wait to get my set and create some amazing projects with these sentiments :)

Until next time happy crafting my friend xx

September Stamp of the Month - Feel so blessed S1709

I love out colour of the year Bashful and I am not a pink kind of girl at all. For the above card I used Bashful mini pigment ink pad on the feather as it is slower drying. I then added clear embossing powder and heat set. I also used our retired Slate mini pigment ink pad and clear embossing powder for the feather on the white cardstock and fussy cut the feather. The thank you was stamped with versamark and white embossing powder.

Father's Day 2017

For the above Father's Day card I used versamark ink pad Rangers Princess Gold embossing powder.
I hope these 3 projects have inspired you to give this wonderful kit ago. :)

Last but by no means least I hope you find this video from Close To My Heart helpful on how to put the kit together. I am a visual girl so I know I did :)

Customer Thank you cards with July SOTM

Hello today I would like to share with you some very easy cards I made using the Storybook Alphabet Stamp Of The Month from Close To My Heart.
Storybook Alphabet S1707 Stamp of the month.
This is a really wonderful Alphabet set to have in your stamp collection as the letters are 1 inch in size so will fit on both cards and scrapbook layouts with ease.
Items I used.
The ink Colours I used were: Fern, Goldrush, Eggplant, New England Ivy and Peacock they are all from the Enchantment collection. I used a 1X1" My Acrylics Block code:- Y1000 and stamped each letter individually on a piece of 12X12" White Daisy cardstock Code: 1385
Stamping each letter individually did take a little time but was well worth the effort as I had them on an angle.

Thanks cards.
I used the CTMH Craft Cardstock Code: Z1375 as my card base.

I hope you have enjoyed taking a look at today's creativeness :)

Until next time
Happy Crafting xx
