May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring May's Stamp of the Month, which is "D1421 Cherish the Moment," a set of 8 stamps.

If you have come here from Brae's Blog, you are on the right path! When you reach the end of my post you will continue hopping along from the link posted for you.

This month we have nearly 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's Stamp of the Month and other great Close to My Heart products on their blogs. Hopping along with us 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!

For my card creation, I used the cardmaker's how-to recipe book, "Wishes" cardmaking how-to program and followed the pattern called, File Pocket. The how-to programs from Close to My Heart are such great time-savers for me. The programs really do make my projects come together: "Faster. Simpler. Easier."

Project Supplies:
Stamps: D1421 Cherish the Moment, May's Stamp of the Month
Paper: Zippidee Level 2 paper packet
Cardstock: Black CS, Colonial White CS, Desert Sand CS, and Indian Corn Blue CS
Inks: Bamboo, Black, Desert Sand, and Honey
Embellishments: Cranberry Grosgrain Ribbon, Fancy Fuzz, and Black Bitty Brads
Tools: "Wishes" how-to book, Micro-Tip Scissors, Paper Piercer, Embossing Stylus, our new 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Sanding Kit, and Sponges

You are going to love the new Fancy Fuzz and the great circle punch too!

I love distressing and had a good time with my sanding block and sponges to come up with this card.

From this image below, you can see all of the 8 stamp images included in this stamp set. As you can see, there are many great uses for this set! This set can be a nice addition to both your cardmaking and scrapbooking bag of tricks. In the month of May, you can earn at a discount or even FREE! Ask me how!

Remember, the May stamp of the month is only available until May 31st! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

When visiting my website: you can also find great Close to My Heart scrapbooking and stamping supplies anytime you want, 24/7.

Now "Hop" on over to Amy's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to see some great artwork!
