CTMH Stamp of the Month: Happy Place S1403A Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the Month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from  Shaunna’s Blog – Passionate about pagesthen 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 this card which features the March SOTM Happy Place S1403A available exclusively throughout February for $29 or for just $5 when you spend $75.

I have been very busy this week so I had to do a card very quickly this morning and I hope that it has turned out ok.  I have used a combination of colours which I would normally never use, but that is the beauty of CTMH – the colours coordinate so well.

CTMH SOTM - Happy Place

This stamp set is so cute and the sentiments would be wonderful on a scrapbook layout with mother and daughter photos.

For this card I have also used the Quatrefoil embossing folder again and then stamped tone on tone for the top part of the card.  All the pieces have been distressed with Desert Sand ink.  For the sentiment  I have used one of the dimensional elements (which I need to learn to use a lot more!).  I have sponged it with Desert Sand ink and then stamped the sentiment with Black ink.  The heart has been stamped with Black ink on Ruby cardstock and then fussy cut.  The Russian doll has been stamped on White Daisy cardstock and then coloured in with the CTMH alcohol markers, fussy cut out and then adhered with foam tape.

Materials used:

Cardstock – Pear, Indian Corn Blue, White Daisy

Inks – Pear, Black, Desert Sand

Stamps – Happy Place, Scandanavian Wishes (NLA)

Green and blue epoxy bubbles

Embossing folder – Quatrefoil

Alcohol markers – Buttercup, Sweet Leaf, Ruby, Indian Corn Blue
