Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring March's SOTM, which is Floral Happiness, a set of 16 stamps.  If you have come here from Maureen O'Sullivan's Blog, you are on the right trail!  The blog hop is a big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultants here                             

This month we have 60+ Close to My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other super CTMH products on their blogs.  This is really simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog and you will move to the next one!  Here we go!

This is my greeting card using Floral Happiness.

I love the simplicity of this card.  Sometimes less is better!  The rose bloom in the stamp set is so delicate.  I generation stamped the full bloom first with Cotton Candy ink which gave a light image.  Then stamped the overlay onto the light image with Cotton Candy again with regular inking on the stamp.  I also stamped the leaves in the same process, generation stamping with Pear ink first, then stamping in same color the overlay onto light leaf with full inking.  I stamped the words with Slate ink.  Inside it says, "being with you," also stamped in Slate.  There are several phrases available to complete the statement, "Happiness is...".  Choose what you want!
