Home Sweet Home (February SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop which features the Home Sweet Home stamp set from Close To My Heart.   The four beautiful sentiments in this set can be used for cards or scrapbook pages.   

If you have come here from the 'Carla Creates' blog, you are on the right path!  With over 60 very creative Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their projects, you will see many different uses for this stamp set.  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!

Since each stamp in the Home Sweet Home set is a nice, large size, I created a 5"x7" card using the Jane Austen quote.  The pretty springlike paper is from the Chantilly pack.  One of several fun new embellishments that I used is the Hollyhock Zipper Lace.  This is basically half of a zipper, with a scalloped edge.  It adds a nice amount of texture and variety.  For the green ribbon knot, Pear ink was used to color a piece of the Color-Ready Seam Binding Ribbon.  This ribbon is actually a Colonial White color on the roll, but you can use any of our inks with a sponge to daub some color on to coordinate with your project.  Also, on the green patterned paper are some new Pink Glitter Gems which add a touch of 'bling' to the card.

Now "Hop" on over to Tamytha's 'Paper HeARTIST' blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas!  Remember, the Home Sweet Home stamp set is only available during the month of February 2013.  The regular price is $17.95, or you can purchase it for only $5 with a minimum order of $50 in other CTMH products.  

If you get lost on the Blog Hop or find links that aren't working, there is a complete list of all participating blogs on Helen's 'Hooked on Stamping' blog.

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
