February SOTM Blog Hop - Wild About Love

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring February's SOTM, which is Wild About Love, a set of 9 stamps.  If you have come here from the fabulous creations of  Tamytha Jenkins's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

This month we have 54 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

My project is a card for Valentine's Day, and I pulled some retired paper from my Stash, Sweetheart.  I thought it suited my theme. Below you see all the items that I used to create my card.

Here is my card:

I started with 3 strips of paper, all measuring 5 1/2" long.  The pink polka-dot is 2" wide, the flower pattern is 3" wide, and the black polka-dot is 1" wide, which I then cut a scallop border on for detail.  The sentiment is stamped in the retired Tulip color ontop of Cotton Candy inked paper.  I actually took the back of the sentiment stamp and swiped it across the ink pad. This created a wood grain look, and created the exact size background I needed for the sentiment.  I matted this on to Black Cardstock.  I'm not sure if you can see the glitter on the flower, but it's there.  I thought it needed something else so I grabbed some black glitter buttons and adhered it onto my card.  I used Saddle Ink to stamp the fox, and colored his nose and eyes black using my journalling pens.

Now "Hop" on over to Dawn Heuft's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, February's SOTM is only available during this month, and that means you only have 28 days to get your hands on this super cute stamp set.  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!
