National Stamping Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH National Stamping Month Blog Hop!   
We will be featuring this month's Constant Campaign, 
Create Happiness. 

Celebrate National Stamping Month this September by making hand-stamped cards to create a little more kindness in the world!  Our Create Kindness card kit contains all of the supplies you'll need to create 24 beautiful handmade cards, with sentiments perfect for brightening someone's day!
If you came here from Haley Dyer ~ The Inky Scrapper you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, the list of participants can be found HERE

This month we have approximately 22 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the Create Kindness Card Kit along with other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I decided to use the card kit to make a gift card holder - "card within a card".  The card base is Kraft paper, 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.  The 3X3 card envelope from the kit was decorated and used to hold the gift card and glued inside the card.  For the front of the card, I had fun cutting apart the premade 3X3 cards creating a geometric design.   The scalloped edge was created using a corner rounder,  and the scalloped circle and oval were cut using the retired Art Philosophy cricut cart.   The green ribbon is from the whimsy ribbon pack. The scalloped green circle and oval were cut from the new willow green paper found in the Adventure fundamental collection.

The "Have a Happy Day" and oval stamp are from the "True Love" stamp set. $7 from the sale of this stamp is donated to Operation Smile providing surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates in children.  

Now "Hop" on over to Jacquelin Green of Paper Goodness to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, this special is only available September 2016. Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get the Create Kindness Card Kit!


  1. Very clever! Those look like palm fronds!

  2. I agree with Haley - my first thought when looking at the front of your card was palms. Clever use of the card bases.

  3. So clever! I like using the envelope on the inside as a gift card holder.
