I am proud to share the following card that I made in my daughter's stamping class. She has been a Close to My Heart Consultant for 10 years !! She loves sharing her passion with others. Our stamping group still includes some of the original members. We often share more than our stamping techniques:) All of us look forward to our once a month meeting. 

The above card used CTMH designer paper, inks and sentiment. The flower and pom pom is from Michael's.The sentiment was first stamped with a coordinating ink then restamped again with white ink. I like the acrylic stamps because you can see just where you wish to stamp. I just love the 3D effect on the word "Thanks."  The flower was formed by rounding two of the corners of a square...unbelievable isn't it??

Thanks for stopping to visit. I hope that I have inspired you to try one of the above techniques. If you do, please let me know and I will surely stop to visit!! Please feel free to leave a comment and/or follow this blog. It gives me great pleasure reading each of your comments and hopefully I will in turn visit your blog.
Hoping that you are staying cool and finding some time to enjoy your crafting this week.
