March SOTM Blog Hop - Happy Place

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring March's SOTM, which is Happy Place(S1403), a set of 7 stamps.  If you have come here from the fabulous creations of  Wanda Riley'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 53 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!


So, to start my project, I started by stamping out a full sheet of images, which will give me 8 sets of cards, with 2 different designs.  I used Archival Black Ink to stamp the images, as it will not bleed when using our Alcohol Markers.

I used Outdoor Denim, Cotton Candy, Cyrstal Blus, Honey, Buttercup, New England Ivy and Ruby Markers to color the Nesting Dolls.

This first card, I used both sides of the Ariana B&T Paper and the Zip Strip and Crystal Blue Cardstock.  I used a tag that was cut from the Artiste Cartridge that I already had in my stash, and outlined it twice with my journalling pen after stamping the sentiment in Ruby Ink.

This second card, I used the Ariana B&T paper and Crystal Blue Cardstock along with some Kraft paper.  I stamped the sentiment uing the Archival Black Ink as I find it shows better on the Kraft paper.

These dolls were very fun to color, and I find it very relaxing.  My youngest daughter even wanted in on the fun. I should mention that she is only 3 years old.

Now "Hop" on over to Kathleen Androlewicz'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, March's SOTM is only available during this month, so don't wait 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!


  1. How daughter would LOVE that but I'm afraid she wouldn't wait 'till I gave her something to color...she would just start grabbing images off my table and color away :0)

  2. You did a great job coloring your dolls. Your daughter's work ... well, yours looks better. :)

  3. Love that this was a mother daughter project. Love the paper choices! TFS!
