My Sunshine (April SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop which features the My Sunshine stamp set from Close To My Heart.   This stamp set is perfect for fun Summertime cards, scrapbook pages, or other projects.  There is a large sun, an adorable bird with separate wing, and even a hot air balloon.  Even better - each of the images can be cut using the Artiste cartridge for the Cricut machine.  Remember, anytime a CTMH stamp set is pictured and an image is outlined in red, that image is available to cut with one of our exclusive Cricut cartridges.  To make it even easier, the stamp set will have information printed on it regarding the correct page number to find the image and the correct size to cut it to coordinate with the stamp image.   

Sheila's Stamping Stuff now has a Facebook page, visit and "like" if you would like to see more artwork using Close To My Heart products and stay up-to-date with CTMH specials and announcements.

If you have come here from Tamytha's 'Paper HeARTIST' blog, you are on the right path!  With 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!

For this card, I used the bold striped paper from the Tommy kit along with the sun, bird, and a sentiment from this month's My Sunshine stamp set.  The card was simple to create.  After cutting the images using the Artiste cartridge and stamping them, it was easy to layer on the card along with a strip of Outdoor Denim Chevron Ribbon.  A matching envelope always creates a nice, finished look for a handmade card.

Now "Hop" on over to the 'Create with Traci' 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 My Sunshine stamp set is only available during the month of April 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).
