May SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!We will be featuring May's SOTM, which is You've Got A Friend, a bold and trendy set of 5 large sentiment stamps. If you have come here from MAUREEN'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 here

This month we have dozens of 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!
This month I made this sweet and simple card for my Team Swap, which we got to do in person when I traveled down to Portland for the CK Scrapbooking Expo. I combined my favorite sentiment from this set with One Way Borders and a bold color combo to make this trendy card. A sentiment framed in Gold Glitter paper and a sprinkling of gold star sequins topped with grey Epoxy Bubbles and star shaped nail gems added a touch of happy shimmer!

I used post-it notes to mask the border stamps and create the varied background arrows. Then I stamped the sentiment right over the background stamps, and again on a square of White Daisy CS. After matting the square onto Glitter paper I just lined it back up with the base stamp and patted on Almond Glitter Glitz for extra sparkle. I'm linking up to the Heart 2 Heart Once Upon a Time challenge, since this is something special that I say to my children all the time at bedtime. 

Now "Hop" on over to JILL'S BLOG to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants' Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the SOTM is only available until the end of May. Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set for just $5!
