CTMH February Stamp of the Month

Good morning from snowy Tukwila, WA, just a few blocks from Sea Tac airport, which has been reported, February 2019 is now the snowiest February on record, with 14.1" of snow, and another snow coming through now.

I work for our local area school district, in the Facilities department as an accountant, so I only have snow days when the district office is closed.  I have taken full advantage of the 3 Bonus Days off, to create and had a chance to make some cards using the Close to My Heart February stamp of the Month, Heartfelt Sentiment S1902 valued at $18.95 however, with a $50.00 qualifying order, it can be yours for $5.00.  Click the link below the image for more details.

Only available from February 1 - 28, 2019

This stamp is a large image, so it can be used for scrapbooking layouts and home décor as well.  I have 3 cards 6" x 6" to share with you, all are embossed with our White Embossing power Z891, over VersaMark ink Z2068.  I also used 3 different thin cut border dies, on each card.  Check out the set on page 118 of the catalog, Decorative Borders Z4241, I personally love the torn notebook paper one.

You Warm My Heart...

Quick post today, just for fun!

I made this little card using an image From the Heart Stamps
Love Faith's images and creating with them

The image is called Love You Mouse and I just wanted an excuse to color
I have been sick most of the week and haven't had any energy to create until today

After printing the image, I colored it with the following Copic markers: BV00, BV02, BV04, C0, C1, C3, R00, R11, V12, V15, V17, YR00, YR02, YR04

I cut the image out using one a 2.5" Spellbinders circle die.  I layered the circle on top of some patterned paper, orange with dots and purple gingham with a white card base.

To finish my card, purple glossy dots and twine.

Thanks for coming by today, enjoy your Sunday - Karen
