Close To My Heart May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

It is so amazing how time marches on. I can't believe that we are having another STOM Blog Hop! This is such an exciting time with the Idea Book release tomorrow, Studio J, Miracles....wow! If you got here from Nicole's Blog, you are on the right track.

May's STOM is called "Cherish the Moment." It is 8 stamps that are so versatile! Just stamp and alter for whatever occasion you need! Perfect for my Craft Fair work....

A new product in the Summer Idea Book is a set of clear cards....very trendy. I love CTMH's Ocean color. I wish that it was used more so I decided to give it a try with a clear card.


A did a few fun things with this card. Besides using the clear square card, I also gave the new A-doorables a shot. My selection from the pack was sponged with Ocean ink. I stamped the image that contained "cheers" in VersaMark on Ocean card stock and heat embossed with Cocoa Powder. I cut out the square that said "Cheers." I then heat embossed the champagne glasses from Ms. Sweetheart on another piece of Ocean card stock. I colored the ribbon on the glasses with my Ocean marker and added Glitz Glitter Glue. I lined up the door on the outside of the card and matched the champagne glasses on the inside so that they faced out through the "door.
I added Glitz Glitter Glue to the edge of the card and covered the back cover with more Ocean card stock.

I tried another project with this stamp set. I came up the the idea to make a party invitation organizer.

I made the cover using Moonstruck card stock and pattern paper from the new Splendor paper packet. The "Party" was stamped, cut out and attached. I punched a hole in the top so that a ring would fit though. I then stamped several blank file cards that fit inside the covers with a stamp from the set. I added Guest Name, Address, Phone, RSVP and Thank You sent. The Organizer is designed to hang on the fridge or a bulletin board to help keep things in order while planning for the big event.

It's time to hop on over to Dawn's Blog and check out what she did with the Stamp of the Month. Thanks for looking. For Now, Happy Crafting!
