CTMH: March SOTM Blog Hop

posted in: Cards | 16

Welcome to another Stamp-Of-The-Month Blog Hop!  This month we have over 50 CTMH consultants participating.  If you’ve come from Traci’s blog, you’re on the right track.  We’re creating with the fabulous set called, Potential.  Here’s what it looks like:

The inspiration for my card came from this photo I found on Pinterest:
It came from a blog called Simply Stamped.
Here’s my card:
And I decided to decorate the inside as well.

I made the base out of Kraft cardstock.  All the patterned paper is from the Pemberly Level 2 paper pack.  The flowers were cut with the Cricut and the stamped images come only from this month’s set.  I discovered that the Tapestry Velvet Rub-Ons match these stamps exactly!  There are more images in the rub-ons, but all the stamp ones are there.  How fun!  I used the Dark Chocolate rub-ons for the flourishes under the flowers.  The brads are from the Copper Designer Brads set.  Initially I had stamped the sentiment on the front with Chocolate, but I didn’t really like it, so I over-stamped with Desert Sand and am now happy with the result.  The edges are all sponged with Desert Sand and the inside image is stamped in the same colour.  I hand-stitched around the outside with embroidery floss, using CTMH’s fabulous ruler to get perfect spacing, and then tied some Colour-Ready Seam binding Ribbon around before attaching it to the base.  I think this is my new favourite ribbon!
Now you’re ready to move on to the next blog and see what wonderful things Gina has created for you.
Happy Creating!
