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:
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.
