Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop, and Happy New Year! We will be featuring January's SOTM, which is called Happy Valentine's, an elegant set of 7 stamps. If you have come here from MARY'S BLOG, you are on the right path!
This month we have almost 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their 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!
This month I created a lovely little box that holds a coordinating accordion album using the (sadly) retiring La Belle Vie papers. That's right folks - this gorgeous paper is buh-bye at the end of January, so get yours ASAP. I random stamped the box base using the largest flower from La Belle Vie and Smokey Plum ink.
There's the stamping! How pretty is that image, even not colored? I built flaps inside an altered Artiste cut box to help protect the precious album inside.
I stamped the edges of the La Belle Vie Pink pages inside with second generation Smokey Plum floral images as well. It adds just the right touch of texture without overwhelming the small album. I used Slate Mini Medleys and Black Tulle to accent this elegant little album.
The sentiments in this stamp set are truly beautiful. I accented this page with a resin rose that I snapped off a pin from the mini-medley and leaves trimmed from the Black Tulle...plus sparkles, of course!
This is the third workshop of Volume 4 of my Stamping Rules Consultant Kits. For more details on my consultant kits, check out my Consultant Kits blog page!
