Baby Bundle

Today I want to show you a couple of projects using the Baby Bundle stamp set.


First, I have a 5x7 baby card.  You could create this in any color scheme.  Look at that big baby banner and the elephants.  So cute!!


I took this one step further and made a frame for the baby's room.  A little watercolor splash behind the sentiment really adds a lot!

Shower Flowers

This is a great stamp set to have in your collection.  If you throw showers or congratulations parties, Shower Flowers will work perfectly!


Using the pattern of page 40 of your Annual Inspirations, you can create this invitation in any color of style.  If you were doing a baby shower, you could stamp baby animals or rattles at the bottom.  It's just such an easy way to make an invitation!

Wise Guy Birthday

We're in the second half of Stampaganza month, so I want to make sure I show you lots of things you can make with stamps.  Today I am starting with Wise Guy Birthday.  It's such a fun stamp set!

I copied this card right out of the idea book.  I love using our idea books for inspiration!


I used Canary, Sorbet, and Glacier ink.  This cake is so fun because you can cut out the plate, layers, and candles out with the Artistry cartridge.  I stamped the edges of the card with the sprinkles from the stamp set.  Isn't this fun and easy?!  Check it out on page 37 of the Annual Inspirations Idea Book.

Welcome to the Rose Blossom Blog Hop!



We are so happy that you've joined us!  It's Stampaganza month (buy two stamps and get one free!), and we are thrilled to show you some cards and layouts using stamps!  The blog hop is a big circle, so whether you are joining me here or finding me in the middle of the circle, you can just keep going around.  Should you get lost along the way, I have all the blogs listed at the bottom.

I made a card for you today with my favorite stamp set.  It's hard for me to pick a favorite, but there is something about the font in this one that keeps me creating with it.  It's called Keep Dreaming.


I stamped the flowers with Memento black ink.  I only used two marker colors - Leaf Green and Peony Purple.  I love the fine tip of the Shinhan marker because it allows me to get into tight crevices.  For the flower on the right, I simply dotted the marker in the circles.  If you don't have any Shinhan markers, I want to encourage you to try them and pick up a few of your favorite colors.  You will love the way they color so flawlessly.

Here is the stamp set I used.  I think you'll agree that it's lovely!


Now it's time for you to head over to see what Lynn has create in her bungalow.  You will love it!

Get Those Alphabets During Stampaganza!

I love the Close To My Heart alphabets.  They are always so well-thought out and on trend.


I've used two alphabets on this page.  The small alphabet is Pen Pal, and the large one is Marker.  Don't they look great mixed together?  The third stamp set I used is Swirly Seashells.  I stamped the outlines with Desert Sand ink (retiring July 31st).  From there, I colored them with re-inker.  Let me explain.  I dropped a couple of drops of cashmere re-inker on my all-purpose mat.  I painted the shells using my clear shimmer pen and re-inker.  It's so easy, and the shimmer is built right in.  Next I dropped a couple of drops of saffron re-inker on my all-purpose mat, and I added highlights with my shimmer pen.  Don't you think that turns out great?

Of Course You'd Love Being a Close To My Heart Consultant!

One of the smartest and very best decisions I've made in my life is being a Close To My Heart Consultant.  My family would say the same thing!  My husband loves that I work from home and am truly happy doing what I love every day.

When I joined Close To My Heart, I joined because I wanted to start a business.  At that particular time, I didn't know many people that scrapbooked or stamped.  In fact, I didn't even know what an acrylic stamp was!  WOW! When I got my hands on my first clear stamp and ink pad, there was nothing that was going to stop me!!  I couldn't wait to tell people all about them!

What I had learned through research is that Jeanette Lynton had strong business ethics and was running a debt-free company.  This meant a lot to me!

I LOVE that my team is full of women just like me that love ink, stamps, and paper.  They are highly creative and super supportive of each other.  What really makes me a proud CTMH mama is that they are truly happy for each other's successes.  It is so fun to watch them grow in their journeys!  Some of my team members have a part-time business, and they are paying for their own product with their earnings, and some are hobbyist consultants that share CTMH with a few friends.

Did you know that Consultant Kit is just $75?  With that $75, you receive over $200 in product PLUS $50 in Select Product Credit that you can use to buy whatever paper, stamps, and ink you'd like!
