Stamptacular Stamp + Thin Cuts Sale Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop in this blog hop featuring stamps from CTMH's Stamptacular Sale going on now through the end of the month. You should have come from Jen Rubio's blog. The hop is a circle, so keep going until you get all the way through, and if you get lost along the way, head over to Melinda's blog for a complete list of participants.

I decided to feature one of the stamp sets which is exclusive to the sale. I didn't get it years ago and have regretted it on more than one occasion. I was thrilled to see it make a come back, so it went in my cart right away.

Instead of using coordinating thin cuts, this set works with a Cricut. It coordinates with the Art Philosophy cartridge. The images are free for Cricut Access subscribers but would only require purchasing only two images for non-subscribers.

My color choices were inspired by the current challenge over at Color My Heart. I used Lemonade, Nectarine, and Candy Apple. And since we're talking flowers, I'm also entering this in the Heart2Heart Say It With Flowers challenge. I went a little crazy, so hang on...

The sentiment on this card comes from the Where Happiness Blooms stamp set.

The swirls on this card come from another stamp set brought back just for the sale, Love Life. I haven't used it in a long time, so it was fun to pull it out to create a background for these flowers. The paper on the bottom is Lemonade cardstock cut to 3/4 inch wide with a Zip Strip from the current Mix-Ins paper suite glued over the top.

These two cards feature just Hooray Bouquet partnered with both the frame and panel cuts of the middle sized Square Stitched Frame thin cuts.

Here's another card using only the stamps from Hooray Bouquet but this time using very different colors. I used a card pattern from Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 4. This is card pattern #4. I've used paper from the Spruced Up paper suite and stamped my flowers in Sangria, Mink, and Julep. I added sequins and white ribbon to embellish.

Just for fun, here's one more card using Hooray Bouquet plus Love Life. I debated adding it because I couldn't get a good picture. I figured you'd rather see the inspiration. The colors here are Pixie, Lemonade, and Raspberry. I was inspired by a different Color My Heart challenge which closes today.

Whew! I told you I went a little crazy. As a reminder, the Hooray Bouquet and Love Life stamp sets are gone at the end of the month. Where Happiness Blooms will return to full price and move back to the Online Only section unless it sells out.

Now you're off to Wendy Kessler's blog. Remember to keep going to see all the great inspiration provided.

Until next time,
