CTMH March Stamp of the Month

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we have almost 60 participants in the blog hop! We will be featuring March’s SOTM, which is Floral Happiness, a 16 stamp set with a TON of versatility!!  This stamp set is available for $5 with any $50 purchase! If you have come here from Annette’s Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.




I did something completely different for this month’s blog hop.  I created a ‘one sheet wonder’ and cut it to make a whole bunch of  cards.  I tried a few different things with these stamps before deciding the detailed flower stamps worked the best to create my sheet of stamped patterned paper.    I  used different stamps from the set to randomly stamp in first and second generation in Blush and Pansy Purple.

Then I cut it up into various sizes and used the pieces to make the following.  I found the initial cut guide on a blog site (I have to add the link here), but then made a bunch of changes as I went.  I also cut the same exact sizes in the Blush and Pansy Purple papers.


In addition to the sentiments on SOTM, I used Joyful Birthday Occassions (B1419) and Card Word Puzzle Occassions (C1494) to stamp the sentiments.  Card Word Puzzle is so versatile!

Spring/Summer CTMH New Product Blog Hop!

The new catalog has been out new for two weeks and the papers and stamps are just fabulous!   I am very excited to share with you our blog hop for the new products in this catalog!  We have approx. 35 hoppers here sharing their exciting creations with you!  For a full list of hoppers you can check here.

If you’ve arrived here from Lucy’s Blog, you have come to the right place!

I’ve said it before but I love to create home decor.  For this blog hop, I created some wine glass tags using ALL of our new paper packs.  Yes they are a small sampling of the papers but I have represented each one in these wine tags.  I purchased some wood tiles from Michael’s (some are like scrabble tiles and some are thin and a little bigger).  I found a suitable section of the paper to decorate the tile and I applied using Liquid Glass (my FAVORITE adhesive! – Z679 $6.95).  I then applied some embellishments and then a nice coat of liquid glass to the top.  Drilled a hole and put in the hoop with a few seed beads.

Here are the wine charms themselves…..first set has embellishments to match the papers (Buzz and Bumble Assortment Z1831 $5.95 and Later Sk8tr Assortment Z1810 $4.95).







And on the glasss…..

My creations paper pouch small (Z1827 $2.95 for 20)  and the fabulous My Creations Muslin Drawstring bag  (Z1822 $3.95 for 3) .  I stamped both with a new favorite stamp from the Card Chatter Collection – Focus on the Little Things (A1137 $6.95).

Cards with New Spring/Summer Products

Tune in Friday, February 15th for our new product blog hop!  But until then, here are two cards I made last night using two new stamp sets from the Spring/Summer catalog and a sheet of one of my new favorites – Buzz and Bumble !


For the first card, I used the card blank from CTMH called Colonial White Die-Cut Cards (Z1738 $6.95).  I thought it lent a nice feel to this very cool stamp – Card Chatter -A1137 $6.95.  We have several of these card chatter options in this catalog – check them out!

I used our pigment inks and clear embossing powder on the front sentiment.  It looks really cool!



This card above is cut into 6×6 from White Daisy Cardstock.    I used the Honeycomb stamp set (C1537 $13.90) on Buzz and Bumble paper and also pigment inks and clear embossing powder.  I LOVE the possibilities of this stamp set!!!  I am going to try some backgrounds with it soon too!

Be sure to check back on Friday for our blog hop!
