Cardstock Carnival Sale!

Cardstock Carnival #ctmh #closetomyheart #cardstock #exclusivecolorpalette #exclusivecolourpalatte #ctmhcolors #cmthcolours

We are bringing the excitement of the fairgrounds to your craft room this month with our Cardstock Carnival! Through the month of April, all of our cardstock is on sale! Save 20% on all individual color cardstock packs, 30% on exclusive color combo packs (shown below), and 40% on the exclusive Cardstock Carnival Bundle!

Available in all of the Close To My Heart exclusive colors, our cardstock is a crafting essential that you can never have too much of! It comes in two-toned sheets, with the original color on one side and a lighter tone of that same color on the other.

This two-toned property allows for easy color combinations and additional color flexibility. The two cards below were created using only the Yellow Cardstock Bundle for the card on the left and and only the Pink Cardstock Bundle for the card on the right! We used the two-toned propery of the cardstock to create a trendy ombrè effect, where you have tones of color that gradually shade into each other from light to dark. Thanks to this feature, we were able to get eight shades of butterflies on the pink card using only four colors of cardstock!

You can also add extra dimension to your paper by using various distressing techniques that expose the white core of the cardstock. For the heart on this page, we created a heart on Cricut Design Space™ and sliced it up, cutting each piece in a different color. Then, we sanded the edges of each piece to add some texture and show off that white core before piecing it all together.

Sticky Boy Takes Over!

In honor of April Fool’s day, I, Sticky Boy, have decided to bring everyone’s attention back to the things that matter most: namely, me. To that end, I’ve taken over Close To My Heart’s blog, Facebook, Instagram, and website. I figured it would be a good prank to give the world a little more of me. 😉

And since the holiday happened to fall on a Saturday, it gave me the ideal opportunity to take over the Home Office, too. If you’re curious about how a clear stamp like me could manage so much mayhem, check out the story on our Instagram account. Let’s just say, I’ve got some serious skills. 🙂

Everyone’s going to find some pretty awesome surprises when they get back on Monday morning…

…they’re going to get a little extra motivation…

“Teamwork is the ability of common people to follow the orders of an uncommonly talented stamp. Like me.”

“The difference between me and successful people is that they don’t have short, stubby, little legs.”

“Leaders are like eagles. Wait, no they aren’t. Leaders RIDE eagles!”

…and they’ll enjoy some new & improved bathroom signs.

In fact, I’ll be “popping” up all over the place.

Of course, there’s nothing anonymous about this, so I left my calling card to make sure everyone knew what I was up to today.

As for Brian and Monica, I had some very special plans for them. I left a message on Brian’s door and just a few sticky notes…

…and I gave Monica’s family photos a little makeover.

Stay tuned on Facebook and Instagram to see what I’m up to the rest of the day—and Happy April Fools!

Your favorite stamp in the whole wide world,

Sticky Boy
