March SOTM Blog Hop -Tea-rrific

This month we are featuring a set of twelve stamps just perfect for friendship cards, Mother's Day cards, or many other creative ideas that you will see along the way in this blog hop.  

If you have never participated in a blog hop before, it is just one big loop of fun ideas as you visit each blog.  If you are coming from Donna's blog, you are on the right path.  If you are starting here, just look for the link at the end of my post and successive posts to see where to go next.  

Here is a set of cards I created using this stamp set.  They are all variations on the same theme, but it was fun to see how they would come together using various papers from the Whimsy Fundamentals paper pack and coordinating cardstock.  I used Shin Han Markers to color all of the flowers.  For most of the cards I used sentiments from one of the stamp sets that comes with the Flower Market Cricut Collection called Sending Smiles, D1708.  I love all the wonderful sentiments in this stamp set.

To get the gems to match the yellow card, I used my ShinHan Marigold marker to color the silver gem from the Sugar Rush Dots.

The sentiment on this pink card is from the Dreaming Big - Card making set, C1674.

The sentiment on this card is from the featured Tea-rrific Stamp Set.  It doesn't show in this photo, but I also covered the cups with Liquid Glass so they would look like china teacups.

I think this is my favorite one of the set.

CTMH supplies used  Click on each link to see these items on my website.
Paper Pack: Whimsy Fundamentals
Stamp Sets: Sending Smiles, D1708 part of the Flower Market Cricut Collection; Dreaming Big - Card Making Set,C1674

The stamp of the month set, Tea-rrific, is only available until March 31st from your Close To My Heart consultant, or here on my website for $17.95, or only $5 with a qualifying order of $50.

Thanks for visiting today.  Now, join me as we hop on to see more ideas using this stamp set as we go to visit Krista's blog.  
If for some reason, you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of participating consultants on Melinda's blog to get back on track.
