Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

We will be featuring March's SOTM, which is called Potential, a set of 8 stamps.

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 approximately 54 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs.

I chose to create TWO cards using this Stamp set.  I used the NEW Lucy paper pack!  The grey tones in this paper pack pull me towards this paper again and again.

Here are some more details with the two cards shown above…

March SOTM - Potential cardFor the first card, I used the How-To Book “Wishes”.  The pattern is called “On the Edge” and is shown on page 53. 

For the card base, I used grey wool ink on my image, but used the 2nd generation ink to make it a subtle image. 

Sponging all the edges in grey wool really give it a nice finishing touch.

March SOTM die-cut card close upFor the 2nd card…I again used the 2nd generation stamping of the Grey Wool ink.  It’s so FUN to create your own background designs with stamps!!

I love the card SHAPE…and you can get this shape too!  We carry these card designs in a pack of 10…AND it included envelopes!  You will receive these 3 1/2” x 8” cards in a pack of 10 with the die-cut edge for only $6.95!!! 

I also used our NEW Pewter Badge Buttons to finish off the ribbon!  These pewter badges are GREAT!!!  They are self adhesive – with a VERY sticky adhesive!  This badge will NOT be coming off of this bow!  I really appreciate how CTMH has added adhesive backs to sooo many of your embellishments!!!  Yayy! J

I hope you enjoyed the cards and I ENCOURAGE you to create some artwork of your own!!!
