February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring February's SOTM, which is "Friendship", a set of 8 stamps. If you have come here from Adeline'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 several Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations 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!

To create this 5x7 card, I used paper from the Wings Level 2 paper pack, and the Ribbon Winner card template from the CTMH Orginals Card Confidence Program. The flourish was created by using the "Multi-Colored Embossing" technique found on page 23 of the new CTMH Spring/Summer Catalog. I first stamped the image in Vineyard Berry ink and then "rolled" the edges in Black ink. To complete the technique, I clear embossed over the top of the color.

The finishing touches of the card include using embellishments from the new Black Mini-Medley collection, Colonial White Organdy ribbon, and scissor distressing around all the edges.

To see more fabulous Stamp of the Month artwork, "Hop" on over to Laurie'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, the February SOTM is only available until February 28th. Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!
