Wishing You Well

I'm back and glad to be home. We had a great week! After clean-up I went straight to my favorite blogs and saw that Nichole Heady was coming out with a new stamp set for PTI using buttons (so cute!). One of her cards is a topiary, so I thought, "I bet I could make that with CTMH stamps I already have!" I then went to Jeanette Lynton's blog to check out her Color Me Monday post and knew I had to incorporate that, too. This blogging world is so great for inspiration! Anyhow, this is what I came up with.

(I thought that the topiary needed a little stamp behind the buttons, so I scoured through all my sets to come up with circles just the right size for the buttons. It was a little extra effort, but so worth it!)


Stamps: CTMH Argyle Backgrounds, Instrinsic Backgrounds, Classmate Alphabet (wishing you well), So Sweet Season (pot), Because I Love You (small circle), It's A Party (larger circle), and PTI Polka Dot Basics

Cardstock: CTMH Clover Meadow, Heavenly Blue and White Daisy, PTI Kraft

Inks: CTMH Topiary, Heavenly Blue, White Daisy, and Desert Sand

Accessories: CTMH Summer Craft Buttons, Waxy Flax, White Grosgrain Ribbon


  1. Hi! I just had to say you are so creative. :) I saw that topiary card on Nichole's blog - you did a great job re-creating the look. Love it! I'll have to check my own CTMH stamps to see if I can do it.
    Happy Sunday~

  2. Wow, fantastic! Love how you did it with CTMH stamps!
