February SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. This month's set is a bold set of phrases/words called Thoughtful Tidings. You may have found your way here from Mary Eisen's blog.

I thought that with the boldness of the phrases, I would go with simple cards. I picked a set of three colors inspired from the Stella Paper Packet: Tulip, Sunset and Lagoon. I love the "splash" that lagoon adds.

Card #1 is a circle card - because I have addiction to circle cards. VERY simple design with an accent of the new Baker's Twine in the Paradise Assortment. The Baker's Twine is the "circle card lovers" new best friend!

Card #2 is super simple with some bling to bring in party!

CTMH New Product Blog Hop

The new idea book is here and packed with great new products. Welcome to the blog hop that features new goodies in the CMTH Spring/Summer 2012 idea book. You may have found your way here from Jennifer Rubio's Blog.

If I had to pick one favorite new item, it would be the set of birthday sayings called Just a Number. I can never get enough birthday stamps and this one has so many possibilities. Here are a few cards featuring the set:

My first circle card uses a cute sentiment from the Just a Number Stamp set and images from the A Tree stamp set and the Stella Paper Packet.

Card Inside:

My next circle card is very simple and easy. I love the soft colors in the new Florentine Paper Packet. The embellishment is a flower from the new Paradise Paper Flowers set and accented with an antiqued gold Durables Stud.

Card Inside:

My last card features one of three "Happy Birthday" quotes is various fonts. I added another new set, Just for You and more antiqued gold durables studs.
