Create Kindness Card Kit

I have to share with you all the creative things people have been making with the special Card Kit for National Stamping Month.

1. Keep em sweet and simple like Beth Shwinn did here and just colour in the images.

2. Jazz the cards up by adding a bit of cardstock behind the circle just like Kathy Corson and  Linda Caler did below.

3. Add a bit of glitz with shimmer trim like Lauren Austen did here.

or with the shimmer brush like Lisa Wurth did on the flowers.


Kindness changes everything. Help create and share kindness with the Create Kindness Card Kit available this month!

September - Stamp of the Month

Each month, CTMH releases a special stamp set available for that month only. You can purchase the (Stamp of the Month) SOTM for only $6 when you place an order of $50 or more in Close To My Heart products. Alternatively you may order one or more of this stamp for $21.25.

The September 2016 Stamp of the Month is Blessed Beyond Measure. It has a whopping 19 stamps.

See the red outline around the pumpkin and the maple leaf? It means that those images can be cut by a CTMH Cricut cartridge - specifically Artbooking.


Here is some autumnal artwork prepared by CTMH head office using the stamp set !

Innovative, creative, and always versatile—here’s just one example of these stamps in use.
