Balloon Talk - CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Adeline Brill's Blog.}   We have over 50 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.   If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.                                                                                                              

The April Stamp of the Month is entitled Balloon Talk (S1404) (Set of 24). Here is a picture of this stamp set:

Such a fun stamp set!  My grandson always calls himself awesome, so I have to make him some cards using that sentiment.

But for the Blog Hop I needed a thank you card and this owl caught my attention.  Here's my card.

I just purchased a new Cricut Explore and am having a ton of fun cutting out images from our Close to My Heart exclusive Cricut Cartridges.  I placed this owl from the Artbooking cartridge over a piece of Cotton Candy cardstock that I embossed with our new polka dot embossing folder.  Love, love, love!

I had to decorate the inside of my card as well.  I used a piece of the Lollydoodle patterned paper from the front and then edged it with part of a zip strip from the same paper packet.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to leave me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Kami Welter's Blog.}

The Balloon Talk Stamp Set can be purchased for $17.95 or if you purchase $50 in CTMH products, you can add this stamp set to your order for an additional $5.  This stamp set is only available between April 1 – April 30, 2014. 
You can purchase this stamp set as well as any of the above supplies  on my website.
