February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Here's the Story



This month I am following {Wendy Kessler's blog}   We have 13 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 Here's the Story  (S2202) (Set of  26).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:

I wanted to make a card for my daughter-in-law using this stamp set.  My son is in the Navy and has orders to go to Cuba for 18 months.  They have 3 boys and my son is a very active father.  His presence will be greatly missed.  I want to remind my daughter-in-law that she is not alone and I would love to help.

Here is my card:

I love these kind of cards that use scraps.  I cut 3/4" strips from the As You Grow Paper Pack and placed the strips as I liked on this card front.  The pieced panel was adhered with Thin 3D Foam Tape. I love dimension to add some interest to my artwork.  

The sentiment and the outline is from the February Stamp of the Month and is stamped in Harbour Ink onto White Daisy Cardstock.  You will see stickers from the As Your Grow Paper Pack with Stickers.  I colored a wooden flower from the Wood Flower Embellishments with Mulberry Shimmer Brush and I applied a Silver Glitter Gem in the middle of the flower.  Then sentiment is adhered onto Harbour Glitter Paper.

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.  Or if you are a VIP Customer, you can get this stamp set FREE with a $50 purchase. This stamp set is only available between February 1 – February 28, 2022.
