Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - February: A Happy Hello

Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month’s set is A Happy Hello, a set of 15 stamps.

If you have come here from {Cat Nowak’s blog}, you’re in the right place! There are more than 60 independent Close to My Heart consultants participating. Click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move through the Hop.

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. You can use this list to pick up where you left off.

Let’s see some artwork!

When it came to creating the swap assignments for our current round, we decided to do away with creating a 3-D Cricut item for a while. It’s been on our list for at least a couple years, so we’ve accumulated quite a few things that are harder to find a place for. That being said, one member suggested creating Picture My Life pages instead. We all agreed that this is a great idea!

Wouldn't you know that I was the first one to be assigned the Picture My Life cards? I was actually really happy about it because this stamp set is so perfect for PML cards! The paper packet we had to use was Hopscotch. It has such a pretty color palette that’s ideal for flowers and spring.

For my page I did a mixture of stamping techniques and embellished patterned paper. I also used Artfully Sent to cut one of the cards. 

Here is what I used. All products are Close to My Heart:
