February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the February CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog hop featuring the Friedship Stamp Set. You may have found your way here from Krista Ritskes Blog. I found myself obsessed with making circle cards and 3.5x8" cards this month. I absolutely love making friendship cards and the Friendship Stamp Set is lovely. I hope you love this set as much as I do!

My first card features the stamp desin cut with the Klic-N-Kut. I LOVE my KNK! Sandy McCauley has an very quick and easy technique for creating the cutting designs for the CTMH stamps. The result is GREAT and so easy!

For information on creating the cutter files using CTMH stamp set, you can contact Sandy at: SANDY McCAULEY

The special secret for getting the perfect allignment is the stamp positioner I found at: Scrapology: Stamp Press. I love the CTMH blocks for all other stamping but when it comes to getting the perfect allignment, the stamp press is another must have.
My first card this month uses the Olivia Paper Pack and a fun color combination of Bamboo, Sunset and Lagoon. The sparkles in the Blue and Green sparkle assortment and Cocoa ribbons complete the look. This card using the "Right Design" from the Wishes idea book.
My second card uses all cardstock in Grey Flannel, Chocolate and Colonial White. I love the elegant look you get when stamping this set with the ink that matches the cardstock.
The next card uses the "Center Circles" templates from the Wishes idea book. The paper is from the Wings paper packet and the accents are from the mini-medley assortment in black and Blue and Green sparkle assortment.

The next card using the "Simple Statement" design from the Wishes idea book. Paper are from Miracle Paper Packet and the accents are from the new Blue and Green button assortment. I love these beautiful buttons!

And last but not least is a card designed from the "Attention Getter" pattern in the Wishes idea book. The papers are from the Wings collection. The embelishments are from the Wings Level 2 assortment leated ribbons and the black mini-medley accents collection.

Thanks for stopping by. The hop continues with Dawn Ross' Blog. Have fun!
