January Worldwide SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring January's SOTM, which is Beloved Boquet, a set of  14 stamps.  If you have come here from Gina's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

This month we have over 30 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I thought this stamp set would be perfect for a Flowerpot card. I started by making a flowerpot from Kraft cardstock using these instructions. I added a small strip of Purple Shimmer Trim to the pot and then set about creating the insert for the card.

I added a white mat to more Kraft cardstock and stamped one of the sentiments from Beloved Boquet at the bottom in Thistle ink.

I then stamped three flowers in Thistle ink (one that was second generation) and outlined them using Desert Sand ink. I also stamped the leaves on Fern cardstock with Topiary ink.

I fussy cut the flowers and leaves, then added them to the top of the card insert.

Then I slid the insert into the flowerpot, leaving the bottom leaves in the card but making sure the flowers overlapped the pot.

Now you have a fun interactive card to give to someone special.

Now "Hop" on over to Michele's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the January SOTM is only available until 31st January!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
