Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring May's Stamp of the Month, which is "D1456 Chairs to You," a set of eclectic, hip images and sentiments great for both cards and pages too. I have to say I just love how in with papercrafting trends that Close to My Heart's stamps are!
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.
We have another amazing group of 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!
This is my project for our hop, a 5" x 7" card based on the Medallion pattern from the "Wishes" cardmaking how-to pattern book from Close to My Heart's own Jeanette Lynton:
Stamps: D1456 Chairs to You, May's Stamp of the Month
Paper: X5812 Wings Creative Basics
Cardstock: Kraft, Juniper, Cocoa, and Colonial White
Embellishments: Juniper satin ribbon from the Wings Creative Basics and Z1372 Green Buttons from the Green Button Assortment
Tools: "Wishes" how-to books, Scallop Circle Punch, Micro-Tip Scissors, Foam Tool, Paper Piercer, Spritz, 3-D Foam Tape, and Glue Dots
Don't you just love how great the striped paper works for the upholstery of this easy chair?
I got to try my hand at this fun technique to create the flower shown here. I punched 6 scallop circles, spritzed them with water, crumpled them tightly, opened them up, layered the circles, and placed a brad through the center. Then, I scrunched up the circles again. I was pretty pleased with how easy these type of flowers are to make.
