Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. This month I am following Allisa Chilton's Blog. We have over 60 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s Stamp of the Month Blog Hop and I am so excited that you are visiting my blog. If you like what you see, I would love it if you would hit the follow button on the right side of my blog!
The February Stamp of the Month is entitled Home Sweet Home (Set of 4). Here is a picture of this stamp set:
Today marks the start of our new 2013 Close to My Heart Spring/Summer Catalog. I am totally in love with this catalog! The artwork in it is totally amazing!
My husband and I have been going through a lot of unplanned experiences lately. We just bought a gorgeous house and moved in. It is easily the largest house I have ever lived in. With only my son still at home, we were wondering why we were led to this house and then 3 days after we moved into it, two of our grandchildren needed a home and we had the room! So we are new parents again to a 7 year old precious little girl and a 9 year old awesome little boy (he told me to say that! LOL).
With that said, I wanted to make a special Valentine's Day card for my hubby and this stamp set was perfect.
I cheated and used pattern paper from two different paper packs. I loved the way that the cocoa paper from Buzz and Bumble went so well with the Sorbet patterned paper from Surf's Up. I am just shaking with excitement with the new Glitter Paper in this catalog. With the added glitter, I decided that I did not need any other embellishment. The stamped sentiment is stamped with Cocoa Pigment Ink onto the Champagne patterned paper from Buzz and Bumble. And there you go. Edges inked with Cocoa ink and a very simple card to make and give. I even managed to put it together with 2 kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats and an ADT man (setting up our new alarm system) at home.
And here is the inside of the card. The inside sentiment comes from March's Stamp of the Month. I just loved what it said and I think that it will have meaning for him.
