Stamp of the Month Blog Hop- You've Got a Friend

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for May 2014- You've Got a Friend





If you have come here from Krista's Blog, you're on the right path.  This month we have over 50 amazing artists' blogs for you to visit.


 

This set of 5 sentiments is SO FUN!  You'll be able to create all kinds of artwork with this one!  


This weekend I started working with this set "You've Got a Friend" and got on a roll.  I created several cards that I want to share with you :)

You Are the Best:
This first one is created using Lollydoodle papers and Flamingo dots.

This second one features Honey Triangle Washi Tape, Black Shimmer Trim, Red Washi tape & Metallic Bakers Twine.


Merci Beaucoup:
On this card, I used Ariana papers and Black Mini Medley.  I stamped the sentiment once in white and trimmed, then again on Sorbet cardstock with black ink and trimmed out just the mustache.  

This card also feautres the same Ariana paper, along with Ariana Grey cardstock that I embossed with the Damask Embossing Folder.  I stamped the sentiment twice on this one again, cut out the second mustache and covered it with black shimmer trim.  


You're the Apply of my Eye
These two cards are very similar!  I used Ariana papers, Ariana Assortment bows, Silver Shimmer trim.  I stamped the bottom of the card using sweet leaf ink and In the Background stamps.  This card base was sweetleaf.  The sentiment was stamped in Ruby ink on Sorbet cardstcock, then backed with white cardstock. 

The card base on this one is White Daisy and the sentiment was stamped on White with Ruby ink.  
*I can't wait to give these to the kids' teachers next week :)
  
You've Got a Friend in Me:
This last card again uses Ariana Grey cardstock embossed with the Damask Embossing Folder.  I stamped the sentiment in Ruby on Sorbet cardstock.  I added some Silver Shimmer trim. along with some Black & grey Epoxy Dots for some embellishing. 


The May Stamp of the Month- You've Got a Friend in Me is available from May 1-31.  It retails at $17.95, but you can get it for only $5 with your $50 purchase on my website!

The next blogger in our hop is Dana!  I know you will see amazing artwork there.  

Happy Hopping!!!
