Floral Happiness

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring March's Stamp of the Month, which is called Floral Happiness, a set of 16 stamps. 



If you have came here from Dawn's Blog at Stamp Til Dawn, 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.
 

For this blog hop, we have approximately 58 Close to My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's Stamp of the Month 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!  




I decided to go monochromatic with my card creation.  I used a paper pack from Close to My Heart called Claire.   The card shape was cut using our exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge - which has 100 different card shapes!  You heard me correctly - 100!  This card shape can be found on page 47, C7, Card, < Shape 8 > cut at 5 1/2".  This will fit in a standard A2 size card.

I stamped the flower images using Sunset ink - Sunset is a coordinating color with the Claire paper pack.  I then used Outdoor Denim ink, another coordinating ink to stamp the sentiment on the outside and inside of the card.  I actually stamped the flower 3 times -- one image was placed on the outside of the card while the other two were place on the inside of the card.  I "popped" the flower using some 3D Foam T3D Foam Tape to give it a little bit of dimension.

SUPPLIES USED
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (Z1686)
Claire paper pack (X7166B)
Floral Happiness - March Stamp of the Month (S1303)

I hope you enjoyed my card.  I think I may make several sets of these using a different color palette.
