National Stamping Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Stamping Month Blog Hop, if you arrived here from Vandra's Virtual CTMH Craftroom  you are in the right place, if you came upon this hop by chance why not follow along by clicking on the link at the end of this post.

For National Stamping Month, Close To My Heart have released 3 different stamp sets geared to every kind of papercrafter. Each stamp set is designed to fit with a specific type of papercrafting, whether that’s scrapbooking, cardmaking, or pocket scrapbooking. However, all the stamp sets coordinate with each other and can be used together to create dynamic artwork. These stamp sets also coordinate with shapes from the new Cricut® Artistry collection to help expand your artwork options even further. Remember, these stamp sets are available for this month only, so get your orders in for one stamp set or all three before these gorgeous stamps disappear! Each stamp set is $21.00.




I  had a lot of fun playing with these stamp sets, they are so versatile. I made some cards and had to stop at four but these stamps are so great the potential for all sorts of creations are endless. They would also make terrific layout titles as well.

This first card uses a stamp from the Hello Life Card Making set CC 1041, paper from the Blossom Collection and a few of the Aqua dots. The gorgeous cat is from the Friendly Pets B1481 stamp set. I cut a small circle in the blossom paper then tore the paper back to reveal the kitty. I saw a similar card on Pinterest and felt it suited the "Oh Hey" stamp really well.


This card was made using the Hello Life Scrapbooking set CC1040, the cameras were stamped using Slate ink and the sentiment was stamped with Glacier ink, unfortunately the Washi Taped used is no longer available. The sequins are from the Gold Assortment Pack


The third card also uses the Card Making stamp set, as you can see I used the Hello, Friend and Star stamps. I choose this lovely green dot paper from the Zoe Collection, the inks used were  Sorbet, Slate and Pear as I don't yet have the Sweet Leaf ink. I do like how the different stamps all go together really well.


 For my final card I used different stamps from all three sets. The gorgeous heart and the ink splotch stamps are from the Pocket Scrapbooking set CC1042. Here I used Lagoon, Slate and Blush inks  and a few of the Aqua Dots.
