April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop



Flower Pot is the name of April's Stamp of the Month (D1409) and it's a sweet Springy set that I found so fun to play around with. Complete with pots, window boxes, a window with shutters, and of course lots of flowers, you can do about a zillion things with this set.

It's a new month, therefore another Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! That means if you're already in the hop, you've come from Katy's blog. If you're beginning, take a look at my samples below and then follow the link to the next blog at the bottom of this post. Don't miss out on over 70 consultants' works of art using this one stamp set. It's sure to fill you with inspiration galore!

For my card, I used papers from the Life Delights paper pack (X7089B). The flowers and pots were stamped with Archival Black ink and colored with markers, then I popped up one cluster with foam tape, as you can see in the close-up view. The border punch is from Martha Stewart Crafts.




My tag was made with a paper piecing style, again most of the stamping is in Archival Black so I could color things in with markers without the worry of bleeding (not me, the artwork). I used a finger dauber and Heavenly Blue ink to make a cloudy effect in the background. I finished off the artwork with Close To My Heart's Bitty Brads in Black, Twilight and Petal. You'll see those best in the close-up.




So thanks for stopping by to check it out. Now hop on over to Danielle's blog to see her beautiful creation!
