So, would you like to see this month's EXCLUSIVE stamp set? 
Take a look! :) 

What a beautiful stamp set to create with.  The lovely flowers AND I adore the sentiments too!  I like the design of script that they chose for these words. 

When I created my project for today, I thought "wedding"...and this is the card I designed. :) 

I used the card pattern design from CTMH's Make It From Your Heart book - pattern #27 in the volume 1 version.

This is a favorite - "go to" book, and I love that I can always get my basic card design created in a short amount of time. 

Here's a close up of the flowers....

I stamped my flower with Memento ink on our watercolor paper.  Next, I squeezed the lid and bottom of my Sea Glass ink pad together - then, opened it up.  I now have beads of ink on the lid of my ink pad...perfect!  I pulled out my blending pen....and "inked it up" from the lid of my ink pad, and started to color in my flower! 

After the flower was dry, I went over a few of the petals with our clear shimmer pen and added sparkles to the center of the flowers. I also used my Silver Metallic pen, and outlines the White Daisy Cardstock center mat.  

I used two paper packs...the Uptown Fundamentals...

...and the All About The Gold acetate sheets. 

Did you notice, my acetate is NOT gold- hee, hee.  When you turn it over on the other side, you have the same design in SILVER!!  Give it a try! 

The strip of "ribbon" is actually silver foil tape...however, in the photo it's showing up black...wouldn't this be pretty with black shimmer trim ? :) 

I hope you are enjoying this blog hop & are getting LOTS of ideas for when you get your own set of this months’ SOTM stamp set.  Happy Crafting to each of you!
