CTMH-- June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for June 2012, featuring Life is Tweet!
 



All artwork on the hop will feature Life is Tweet!  This is a set of 15 stamps, featuring whimsical birds and wonderful sentiments!  It is a must have :)  If you have come here from Debra's blog you are on the right path.


 


This month we have  over 50 CTMH Consultants sharing their SOTM creations, and other great CTMH artwork. Hopping along is fun and simple to do - just click the link at the end of each blogger's post to move to the next one!  Be sure to leave some love (comments) along the way :)




Today I'm sharing a card that I created for my daughter's birthday.  She turned 4 on Tuesday and I wanted to make her a card using the super cute bird in this set.  
I used up some older papers to make it fit her girly, spunky personality.  Her favorite color is pink of course, so I found some pink patterned paper from That's Amore & Daydream (retired) as well as the Zebra print from Roxy.  
I stamped the bird in black ink onto the lighter pink paper, then again in Hollyhock on the darker pink, then cut it out and adhered it over the black image.  I used some pink sparkles for it's eye.  The party hat was also stamped in Hollyhock and I used foam tape to raise it up.  On the inside I stamped "it's your birthday" along with some balloons.
I cut out the frame image from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to stamp the sentiment, then raised it with foam tape as well.  






She just loved her birdie card :)


I helped my son create a card for his sister as well.  He wanted to cut a Princess (from Once Upon A Princess) and then he stamped the green swirls and "Little Princess" from our retired "Little Princess" stamp set.  


And here's my princess and I on her Birthday :)
