May SOTM "Blog Hop"

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring May's SOTM, which is Be Yourself, a set of 14 stamps. If you have come here from Deb's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Jena's Blog and start from the beginning!
***
This month we have 18 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!


I chose to random stamp my Colonial White card front with several stamps from the "Be Yourself" SOTM set and a small flower from the National Scrapbook Month special "Tickled Pink" I stamped these in "Petal" ink and used the eraser of a pencil to stamp the black centers. I paper pieced the "Petal" dress and "shined" up her boots with Liquid Glass. I then matted my card front on black cardstock and finished everything with some black organdy ribbon. Very simple and fun card to make. This was my first attempt at random stamping and I have to say that I will be trying it again!

Now "Hop" on over to
Lucia's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the May SOTM is only available until May 31st! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

Have fun and I'll see you next month!!
