February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Heartfelt Sentiments

Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month 
Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Brenda Lapp's blog}   We have 22 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 Heartfelt Sentiments (S1902) (Set of  9).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:

This is a gorgeous stamp set and you definitely need it.  This stamp set would be great for scrapbooking, artwork or cardmaking.  I love the sentiment as well as the whimsical font and flower borders.

I have been itching to use the white clapboard patterned paper from our new Feels Like Home paper pack (X7243B).  And I love the mellow colors in this paper pack.

Here's my card:

Since this sentiment is so large, and I was unwilling to cut any flowers off, this card is a 5" x 7" card.  The base is made with Linen Cardstock (X6009).  I wanted to emboss the sentiment but wanted it to be in gray so I inked the stamp set with Versamark (Z891) and before stamping inked it in Charcoal Ink (Z2831) and then stamped it.

Then I colored the image with the Small Round Waterbrush (Z3244) and reinkers.  I used Ballerina (Z7501), Sugarplum (Z7500), Fern (Z2750), New England Ivy (Z2250), and Charcoal (Z2731).

The image is matted with the dark side of Charcoal Cardstock (X599) and then I added a slightly smaller piece of Charcoal Cardstock and used the lighter side.  I just love our 2 sided cardstock, one side darker and the other lighter.

The pennants are made using the zip strips from the patterned papers in Feels Like Home.  I didn't add any embellishments because I didn't want to take attention from the sentiment.

The February Stamp of the Month Stamp Set can be purchased for $18.95 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 February 1 – February 28, 2019.
