SOTM Blog Hop for April 2013

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring April's SOTM, My Sunshine, a set of 8 stamps. 

If you have come here from Priscilla Gotham's Blog, you are at the right spot!  The blog hop is one big circle, so you can start here and make your way around.  If you get lost along the way, there is a complete list of participating consultants here:

This month we have over 60 Close to My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other terrific CTMH product on their blogs.  Visiting their blogs is very simple to do - just click on the link at the bottom of each blog and you will hop right over to the next one!  Let's get started!

I chose to make a greeting card using My Sunshine.

I stamped the bird in Outdoor Denim Ink onto White Daisy Cardstock and the wings in Sunset Ink.  I cut out the image and popped it onto the dotted square from the Claire Paperpack with 3D Foam Tape.  Then I double framed the square with Hollyhock Cardstock on top of Sunset Cardstock.

I also used the Honeycomb stamp set which is where I got my hexagons using Sunset, Outdoor Denim and Hollyhock Ink.  You need to cut them out by hand because our Cricut cartridges, Art Philosophy and Artiste, do not have a hexagon.  There are some hexagons underneath the square in the center, but that is not necessary.  I lined them up and glued them to the Champagne Cardstock base.  I wrapped the Sunset Baker's Twine from the Paradise Assortment around the base before I attached the double-framed square containing the bird image.  The base is framed in Outdoor Denim Cardstock.

From the SOTM I stamped, "You're tweet" three times across the bottom with Outdoor Denim Ink.

The products I used:
Claire Paper Pack
Sunset Cardstock
Hollyhock Cardstock
Outdoor Denim Cardstock
Champagne Cardstock
White Daisy Cardstock
Outdoor Denim Stamp Pad
Sunset Stamp Pad
Hollyhock Stamp Pad
Paradise Baker's Twine
3D Foam Tape
Tombow Adhesive
You can get a kit of this card on my blog so that you can DIY simply.  Look under the "April 2013 Charming Card Kits" post to purchase it!
Now you get to "Hop" on over to Judy Faye Garner's blog to see how she used My Sunshine!  Be sure to visit all the Consulant's Blogs to get some great inspiration!  Remember, the April SOTM is only available until April 30!  Contact your CTMH Consultant or click here to see how you can get this stamp for $5.
Thank you for stopping by!  Nancy Womersley
