February Worldwide Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring February's SOTM, which is Balloon Animals, a set of 13 stamps.  If you have come here from Alyson'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 have seen a few of the cute pop up boxes on Pinterest, and I thought that these adorable balloon animals would be a perfect addition! I found a Design Space cut file for this box, which made it even easier to put together with my Cricut.

I cut the box and insert from Pomegranate cardstock.

The panels were all cut from the Sangria Paper Packet, which works with a lot of different birthdays.

I stamped and fussy cut some of the Balloon Animals on Kraft cardstock with Cocoa, Eggplant, Pomegranate and Poppy inks. The sentiment was also stamped then fussy cut and attached to the back of the box.

I attached each animal to one of the box inserts with a small amount of EZ Dots Adhesive.

Now these cute Balloon Animals will pop out of this box when it is opened! Perfect for a special birthday card. 

These balloon animals were left over from my Cupcake Toppers, which you can see here.

Now "Hop" on over to Katy'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 February SOTM is only available until 29th February!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
