What I *LOVE* about CTMH ~ Stampers With An Attitude (Blog Hop)

This month, some members of our Stampers With An Attitude team are sharing what they *love* about Close To My Heart.          

If you have come here from the My Creative Happy Place blog, you are on the right path!  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one, or visit each blog from the list at the end of this post.  

What I *love* about CTMH are the clear My Acrylix stamps.  With a clear stamp mounted on one of the clear blocks, it is so easy to see exactly WHERE your image is being stamped.  This is especially convenient for 2-step images like this flower which has a solid base and then a separate outline image to add detail.   

For this card, the flower base from A Budding Friendship set was stamped using Pixie ink and then Hollyhock ink was used for the detail portion.  Centers of the flowers were stamped using Honey ink, and Whisper for the flower stems.  A sentiment from the For A Friend stamp set was inked with Lagoon and masked so that the stems continue past the greeting.  The card came together quickly using pattern #27 in Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 and some patterned paper from the Heartstrings kit.  A strip of White Shimmer Trim and a bit of Slate Diagonal Striped Ribbon add finishing touches.                 

Now "Hop" on over to If You Bling It to find out what Melinda *loves* about CTMH.

    1. Thanks, Belinda. I love working with our clear stamps!

  2. Fabulous card. I love our acrylic stamps and particularly the ones which are paired like this.

    1. Thank you, Cat. 2-step stamping is so much easier than user wooden stamps. :)

  3. Yep yep! Can't beat the see-through stamps!
