Join Me for the February SOTM Blog Hop - A Happy Hello

Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Michelle Stewart's Blog.}   We have over 60 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 February Stamp of the Month is entitled A Happy Hello (S1502) (Set of 15). Here is a picture of this stamp set:

I really enjoyed playing with this stamp set.  When I first saw this stamp set, I loved this card and wanted to make something similar with the flowers.  I am so going to CASE this card for my customers, but for the blog hop, my work needs to be original.

So, I decided to just play with this stamp set and see what I came up with and after playing with this set for a bit, came up with a non-flower look.  I am totally enamored with our Hopscotch paper pack so I used the Hopscotch colors on my card.

Here is my card.

I wanted to showcase the vibrant, stamped image, so I used Colonial White Cardstock for the card front.  It looked so plain so I ran it through my Diamond Embossing Folder and that added just the right touch.  A little bit of scalloped gold Shimmer Trim, and a gold Sequin and the card is finished.  Super easy and fun to make!

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to show me a little love by leaving me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Melissa Robinson's Blog} and see what she has made with this adorable stamp set.
