Choose Happy S1503: CTMH Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from Tracey's Blog, you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s March Stamp of the Month, Choose Happy.

This stamp set can be purchased in March for $33, or just $5 when you place an order of $75! If you don't have a Close To My Heart Consultant you can shop with me.

Today I am sharing this card featuring the spotlighting technique- something I haven't tried before but was keen to do.

 I started off by inking up a background stamp in Chocolate, and then I also stamped it in Hollyhock. I used the woodgrain frame from the SOTM to frame a piece of the pink image, and adhered it on top of the brown floral stamped image. I also triple stamped a sentiment from the SOTM on top of the pink raised piece.

Some gold shimmer trim and a gold butterfly puffy tied the card together, and I matted the floral stamped background with some Heartstrings paper.

I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Creative Inspirations.

  3. Shimmer Trim and Puffies are a must on any card Lauren. Thanks for sharing. :)
