This Moment (January SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  This month the featured stamp set is This Moment, with is a great stamp set to create some fun Valentines.  See all the images in the stamp set in the picture at the bottom of this post.    

If you have come here from My Creations with Michelle blog, you are on the right path!  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!  

Instead of a Valentine card, I chose to create a card which can be used anytime.  Using ink colors from the Hopscotch kit, the three different arrow images from This Moment stamp set were used to create an accent piece behind the 'hello.' A piece of patterned paper from Hopscotch was used as the background on top of a Ponderosa Pine cardstock base.  A bit of Flaxen twine adds a finishing touch.  Design of the card is inspired by Pattern #22 in Make It From Your Heart Volume 1.        

Place a $50 minimum order this month (January 2015) and you are eligible to purchase This Moment stamp set for only $5, or you can purchase it at the full price of $17.95 without a qualifying order.
