Welcome to the Close To My Heart 

March Stamp of the Month 

Blog Hop

This month we are featuring the stamp set, Choose Happy, a set of 14 stamps. 
Remember this set is only available until March 31st for $17.95, however, you can purchase it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 -- With all the great ideas you'll see in this blog hop, you'll want to add it to your collection .  



If you have come from Kelly's blog, you are on the correct path.  The hop is a big circle, so you can start here and hop around the circle.  This is simple to do, just click the link at the end of each post to move on to the next blog.

This month we have over 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this stamp set and many other wonderful CTMH products. So grab your beverage of choice, and get your pinning finger ready to gather lots of great ideas for using this stamp set.

For this hop, I made some cards using various stamps from this set and ShinHan Touch Twin Markers on each card.  This first card is my favorite.

Additional products used on this card are: Teal Shimmer Trim, ShinHan Touch Twin markers Leaf Green and Turquoise Blue, and Sparkles which I colored with the Turquoise Blue Marker.  The Congratulations stamp is from D1629, Just to Say Cricut Collection (Artfully Sent).

Supplies used in creating this card were: Cocoa, Saddle, and White Daisy card stock.  The "wallpaper" was stamped and stippled using Pixie ink.  The woodgrain on the horizontal wood trim was achieved using the wood frame stamp from this set.  The vertical woodgrain was achieved by scoring and sanding the Saddle card stock.  ShinHan markers used on the mirror frame were Mahogany, Bronze, Barely Beige, Tender Pink, Golden Yellow, and Leaf Green.  I used the CTMH Silver Metallic Marker to create streaks on the mirror.  Bitty Sparkles accent the mirror. 

Supplies used for this card were Topiary, Pear, and White Daisy card stock and Topiary Striped Washi Tape.  Shin Han Markers used were Leaf Green and Sap Green.  Bitty Sparkles were also used but don't really show up to well on this photo.  The thank you stamp is from D1629, Just to Say Cricut Collection (Artfully Sent).

Supplies for this card include Ruby, Canary, and White Daisy card stock.  Shin Han markers used were Carmine, Golden Yellow and Cerulean Blue Light.  Die cuts are from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge, p.35 at 3/4 inch. Gold sequins with bitty sparkles are in the center of the die cuts.
