Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - March: Floral Happiness

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This time we're featuring the March set Floral Happiness, a set of 16 stamps. If you have come here from Tamra Pope's blog, you’re in the right place! There are more than 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their artwork made using the Stamp of the Month and other great CTMH products. 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. The Blog Hop is a great big circle. Start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find a complete list of participating consultants here.

Off we go!

As I mentioned last time, the guidelines for my swap group have changed, so I actually had a different assignment for this month that didn't include using the Stamp of the Month. I really had no idea how to best use two-part stamps, but after trying just a few different colors I was pretty pleased with the results.

Rather than sticking with just one paper packet, I thought I'd mix it up a little and use a coordinating pattern from a different kit. I love these colors and patterns together!

Supply list:
S1303 Floral Happiness stamp set
X71636B Claire Level 2 Paper Packet
X7164B Buzz & Bumble Level 2 Paper Packet
1388 Colonial White cardstock
Z2191 Sunset Exclusive Inks stamp pad
Z1816 Durables Artisan Studs
3-D Foam Tape

Now "Hop" on over to Katy Taylors’ blog to see her work, and be sure to visit each consultant's blog to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas! Don't forget, this exclusive stamp set is only available thru Sunday, March 31st!
