Celebrating Life’s Milestones with Stamps

I don’t know about you, but my days have just seemed all mushed together. I was looking at my seasonal decor today, and realized I still have clovers and bunnies. I guess I am just celebrating a Lucky Resurrection Mother’s Day at home. 😂  If you are ready to move on to the NEXT holiday and continue to document your stay-at-home, Close to My Heart has created a whole lot of goodies JUST FOR YOU. 

This month, you can purchase some sentimental stamp sets to celebrate the men in your life AND some cheeky stamps & SVGs to document all this time you have enjoyed at home.  

Legendary Father’s Day

Celebrate the man who means the most in your life with TWO exclusive stamp sets that are available through the Legendary Father’s Day special.   You can save 20% when you purchase the Legendary Father’s Day Stamp Bundle.  That’s only $16.95 for BOTH stamp sets!!! 

Let’s Stay Home

For those of us who are trying not to loose all of our marbles, Close to My Heart has created some fun, silly, cheeky stamps, kits, and SVGs for you to “celebrate” your time at home.  (I bought them just for the comic relief). 

These three stamp sets are the NEWEST addition to the funny Stay At Home collectionAren’t they just too stinkin’ funny?! 

For those who are documenting your stay, you can download TWO FREE SVGs to use on the covers of your albums or as titles for your pages. 

If you are not sure how to upload SVGs into Design Space – visit this post

For those who wish to thank all of those who are continuing to work on the front lines, Close to My Heart has created some Free SVGS for you AND a wonderful thankful sentiments card making kit. 

This Cardmaking Bundle  includes everything you need to create cards for those you wish to thank.  Our son was one who was out making sure people had heat during this time and we praise God each day that he stayed healthy.  

Speaking of card making kits, I have one last funny to share with you – after all, when faced with adversity, a smile is our best weapon because it helps us stay hopeful.♥  This last little Cardmaking Bundle was created to tickle your funny bone. 

Did that make you smile? I hope that it did.  Don’t forget to check out ALL of the May specials we have for you this month.  There are so many amazing products on my website right now, and you don’t want to miss out on the savings.

A Quick & Easy Father’s Day Card for Color My Heart Dare

With Father’s Day a little over a week away, you might be looking for a little inspiration for a last-minute quick and easy card to make. Well, let me help you out, my friend. I realized that this week’s Color My Heart Color Dare colors had a bit of a masculine feel, so I decided to use a few of those to create a Father’s Day card.


This card was super simple to make using some leftover Close to My Heart supplies I had on hand. (You can find the full list of supplies I used at the very bottom of this post.) As I said, my inspiration for the color pallet came from the Color My Heart Color Dare blog. I chose to use Linen, Candy Apple, New England Ivy, and Sapphire.

Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” Linen Cardstock, 5¼” x 2¾” Plaid Paper (Into the Wild), (2) 5¼” x ¹/8″ Candy Apple Cardstock, (2) 5¼” x ½” Zip-Strip (Into the Wild), (3) 2¹/8″ x 1½” White Daisy Cardstock, (3) 1½” x 1³/8″ Sapphire Paper (True Love)
Quick Tips to Help You Make this Card

I added stitching over the Candy Apple Cardstock. This was to done intentionally to “mute” the color.


The Tags were created by stamping the “I ♥ You” tag topper onto each of the 2¹/8″ x 1½” White Daisy Cardstock pieces with Sapphire Ink. I then trimmed each into a “tag” shape, attached 1½” x 1³/8″ Sapphire Paper below the stamped image, and added White Foam letters to the tags. You could also spell “Pop” for a grandfather.

The two Wooden Triangles are from our bag of Wood Shapes. I wanted a “natural” element on the card and these provided the perfect accent.

I hope that this project has inspired you to try something new and that you share your creation at the Color My Heart Color Dare Blog. The Design Team always has some great projects to inspire and you could win one of the monthly prizes. Don’t forget that the For My Father stamp set is only available through June 30th. There are some great images on this stamp set that you could use for your paper-crafting projects.
I can’t wait to see what you create!
