January 2017....a brand NEW year, and that means a Brand NEW stamp set too!  There will be MANY occasions for us to use this stamp set throughout the 2017 year!

Here is this months, Stamp of the Month stamp set....

While Valentine's Day may be the first idea that pops into your mind...don't stop there! :)  Birthdays, Wedding, Anniversary, and Thank you occasions also come to mind. 

Here is the card I created using this month's stamp of the month....

I used the card pattern design from CTMH's Make It From Your Heart book - pattern #24 in the volume 1 version.

Close To My Hear'ts How-To books are some of my FAVORITES!!  They are my "go to" book, and I love that I can always get my basic card design created in a short amount of time. 

Let me share with you the NEW products that I used in today's card! :) 

Let's start with the BEAUTIFUL paper pack - "Hello Lovely".  
 Click on the photo below to see the MANY items that coordinate with this paper pack! 
The GOLD shimmer Brush

Take a look at how our NEW gold shimmer brush can be added to any paper!  In this case, I used the shimmer brush to fill the inside of the heart. This camera angle allows you to see the shimmer brush coloring a bit better than the first's so much better in person! :) 

I stamped my heart & flowers with Desert Sand ink, and then carefully shaded in the flowers with our ShinHan alcohol markers

Next - we have some BEAUTIFUL new ribbon!!!  The Blush Shimmer Ribbon...pretty!

Also - take note of the centers of the flowers - oooo so pretty!!  We have NEW embellishments too - a pack of gold glitter gems...70 adhesive backed glitter gems in TWO different sizes!

I hope you are enjoying this blog hop & are getting LOTS of ideas for when you create with your OWN Stamp of the month stamp set. Happy Crafting to each of you! 

Now – it’s time to head over to Tracie's blog to see what FABULOUS items she has created using this stamp set!
