Welcome to our CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring February 's SOTM called Friendship, a set of 8 beautiful damask stamps. I am loving these as a monochromatic background!
If you have come here from Deanne'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 about 70 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their artistic creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. Hopping 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 purse card with this elegant stamp set for February. I stamped the background of the card with one of the damask stamps inked in Sorbet and rolled in Juniper ink. Working on a small canvas like this, it was really easy to line everything up pretty evenly - being able to see through the stamps makes that job a lot easier!
I freehand cut the purse handle from my card base for the front and back - it's attached along the top of the handle. Then I covered it in Sorbet CS that I swiped with an acrylic block inked in Sorbet and Juniper inks to give it more texture.
I created one of those adorable pom pom flowers using my new Scallop Punch and the new Lucky papers - can you see the Bingo card pattern in my flower? I pounced my completed flower with Desert Sand ink. I created a cute little tag to slip behind my flower, with a second generation image stamped over my 1st generation sentiment.
Finally, I cut a piece of 3 inch wide Sorbet CS to make the base of my "purse". I scored it at 1/2 inch from each side, and at 1 1/2 inches (or the middle/in half), then folded it in half with a mountain fold and flipped the 1/2 inch edges up. Those little flaps I adhere to the bottom of my card to complete the purse - it could hold a little baggies of candies, or gift cards, etc...
