March SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring March's SOTM, which is "Floral Happiness", a set of 16 stamps.  If you have come here from Kim'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 at Kathleen's blog.

This month we have approximately 55 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!

A picture of the stamp set is shown here: 

I have created two cards for this month's Blog Hop. Both use the Claire Paper Pack. 

 The first card was created using the masking technique. I stamped the base of the two flower sizes, cut them out and then adhered them over the the stamped image a few times to get the effect of the other flowers sitting behind them. 
This is a much simpler card. I love the way the glitter paper sets off the simple flower. 
Supplies for both cards are listed below. 

Supplies used are all Close To My Heart: 

Paper: Claire Paper Pack, Cashmemre Cardstock, Outdoor Denim Cardstock, Colonial White Cardstock, Glitter Paper
Stamps: Floral Happiness
Inks: Cranberry, Blush, Sweet Leaf, Topary, Sunset, Outdoor Denim
Accessories: Art Philosophy Cartridge, Artiste Cartridge, Outdoor Denim Chevron Ribbon, Cranberry Baker's Twine, Claire Assortment, Foam Tape

Now "Hop" on over to Terry Ann'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!
