March SOTM Blog Hop: Sensational Season

Try as I might, I just can't seem to get another blog post in during the month : ) It's not as if I'm not creating, just not getting them on the blog very quick...

Welcome to the March Close to my Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring a "Sensational" set of 10 adorable stamps with a cute Mama and Baby bunny to get you in the mood for spring!

If you have come here from Melissa's Blog you are on the right track. Just check out what I've created this month and then click on the next blog at the end of this post.

I love, love, love the Beatrix Potter feel of these stamps and they are oh so appropriate for new baby and new mama cards, so that is what I have created!

For this first "Congratulations Mama" card, I used the mama bunny stamp and colored it in with chalks and fussy cut the image out and popped it up on foam tape. I tied some colonial white organdy ribbon at the bottom and used the sentiment from the "Love you Forever" stamp set. All of this is on the Pear side of the Wings B & T plaid paper. Super simple, but cute card.

Next I wanted to create a onsie card to mount baby bunny on. I used Crystal Blue paper for my onsie and used the "Connections" stamp set to "stitch" the arm, leg and neck holes. I faux stitched the Buttercup yellow circle, distressed it and mounted on foam tape the cute little boy bunny. Our pearl accents finish off as snaps nicely.

Now it's time to head on over to Vickies Blog and check out what she has created this month. I promise I will try hard to get a post up this month in between blog hops!

Till next time,
