Stamptacular Blog Hop

Close To My Heart is offering some amazing savings on stamps and Thin Cuts bundles this month, and this hop is highlighting some of our favorites.  (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Alyson's blog.  From here, you'll visit Brenda's blog next.)

For my *new* Stamptacular project, I couldn't resist creating a bird card!  I grabbed my Spruced Up Cardmaking stamp set and Thin Cuts to create a slimline (8"x3.5") card the Daisy Meadows paper collection.  I used Mint cardstock as my base and then cut the plaid Daisy Meadows patterned paper with my Fancy Cuts Thin Cuts.  I stamped my evergreen boughs with Peacock (first and second generation) on two die cut pieces and then stamped both of the chickadees/AKA goldfinches on Thin Cut pieces of Canary cardstock with Black ink.  I stamped the sentiment in black on the White Daisy banner and then added it on top of a Peacock patterned paper banner from the Daisy Meadows collection.  I finished my card off with a black burst adhesive gem.

Here are some other ideas that I've featured before on my blog but that also use current Stamptacular stamps.

Spruced Up Cardmaking:

Sweet Hummingbird:

Aurora Cardmaking:

Summer Vibes:

If you don't already have a CTMH Maker, feel free to check out all of the savings on my website HERE.  Note that many of the stamp sets are also available as a stamp set/Thin Cut bundle, so be sure to scroll all the way through all the goodness before you check out.

Thanks for letting me share some old and new projects as inspiration for this STAMPTACULAR blog hop and special!  Please leave a comment before hopping, swimming, or jumping on over to Brenda's blog next!
