May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Celebrate Today

Welcome to the May Stamp of the Month 
Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Cat Nowak's blog}   We have 19 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 May Stamp of the Month is entitled Time to Celebrate (S2005) (Set of  28).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:

Such a beautiful font.  And the sentiments can be used over and over again.

Here is my card:

Do you recognize my little fox?  It is from the You Make Me happy (D1920) Operation Smile stamp set.  I love this stamp set and I love that $7 of the price of this stamp goes to Operation Smile, a wonderful charity that travels to various countries offering free surgeries for cleft palates.

When I first purchased this stamp set, I stamped all of the images and sat down and colored them with our Spectrum Noir TriBlend Markers. I have picked them up since then and used them in my cards.  Today's  card features my adorable fox.

And I just had to use the hey there sentiment from the May Stamp of the Month stamped in Black ink directly onto the patterned paper.

How do you like my scallops made with our Dreamy Holographic Paper (Z3665)?  I cut them with our retired stitched scallops.  The patterned paper is from our new Mix-In Paper Pack (X9015) and the heart paper is a zip strip from that paper pack.

I colored one of our new Wood Buttons (Z3668) with our Peach Shimmer Brush (Z3661) and then adhered a Gold and White Twine (Z4014)  bow to the front of the heart wooden button.

The TriBlend Markers used were: Orange Blend (Z2480), Fair Skin Blend (Z2476), Coral Blend (Z2481), Dull Green Blend (Z2486), and Light Green Blend (Z2485).

The May 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 May 1 – May 31, 2020.
