January SOTM Blog Hop!

Welcome to our CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring January's SOTM called  Find Your Style, a set of 9 gorgeous stamps. I am addicted to this butterfly!

If you have come here from Tamytha's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Helen's Blog and start from the beginning!

This month we have over 50 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 did a card with this beautiful stamp set for Mojo's sketch earlier this week, but I couldn't resist getting in another card with this beautiful butterfly. I used the butterfly B&T from the Wings papers to add a swirl of smaller fussy-cut butterflies trailing behind the larger stamped butterfly. Many of the wings are popped out with teeny slivers of 3-D foam tape. I stamped the larger butterfly using my baby wipe puddle pad inked with black and Vineyard Berry re-inkers, and stamped it onto B&T paper to bring in extra color. Then I pieced the body from the Black diamond B&T. 

I stamped the front background Colonial White cardstock with the main sentiment verse in Black ink, then repeatedly in 2nd and third generation in lots of directions to echo the feel of the distressing on the stamp set images. I stamped the back Colonial White CS layer with the butterfly image in Black ink all around the edges. I swiped everything with Black ink and assembled the card. Finally I spritzed the entire project with my NEW Spray Pen filled with water and 6 drops of Vineyard Berry re-inker.

Now "Hop" on over to Lisa'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!
