Welcome to our monthly Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop!!!

Here is this months EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5 with your $50 CTMH purchase in February 2018.

This stamp set caught my eye immediately when I first paged through our Seasonal Expression 1 mini-book.  LOOK at those words, look at the font....the flowers & vines - OH MY! :)   

Let's take a look at the card I created using this stamp set.... 

I chose to use a NEW card design pattern, from our Make It From Your Heart, vol 4 How-To-Book.  If you enjoy creating cards - you'll want to make SURE to check out this wonderful NEW sketch book!!  CLICK HERE to check it out :)  

 I also chose to use the beautiful new paper - "Gimme Some Sugar".  This paper pack is so pretty!! 

Take a part of this card "looks like" paper, but it's's paper I stamped to make it look like paper!! :)  
Did you find it?? got it!!! That striped background was created using one of the borders in this stamp set!   

 Let's take another closer look, this time, at the circle where I stamped my sentiment.  
I ADORE the NEW Bashful Glitter Brush and try and use it whenever I can.  I traced the outside of the circle with the Bashful Glitter Brush!!  I love how the brush added just a little sparkle to the outside of the circle.  It was hard to capture on camera...but look closely, and I think you'll be able to see the shimmer. 

To finish off the card, I used some of our NEW Peacock Stitched Ribbon & the black shimmer dots come from the Chelsea Gardens Dots & Gems. 

Have a wonderful SUNNY day! :)  

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!

  3. I too, try to use the shimmer brushes whenever I can. I love that you created your own background paper using the border stamp. Fabulous touch.

  4. This is beautiful incorporating Gimme Some Sugar and..using that border stamp as a background; FAB!
