Beloved Bouquet January 2016 SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the January 2016 SOTM Blog Hop featuring the stamp set Beloved Bouquet. This month there are almost 35 bloggers sharing projects they created with Beloved Bouquet. If blog hopping is new to you, keep clicking on the link to the next blog (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next stop. Blog hops are circular so visiting the next blog will take you back to where you started.

The SOTM for January 2016, Beloved Bouquet, is a D-size set of 14 stamps that is $5 with a qualifying purchase. Alternatively you may purchase it for $17.95. Recommended CTMH My Acrylix® Blocks for this stamp set are: 1" x 3½" (Y1002), 2" x 2" (Y1003), 3" x 3" (Y1006) and 2" x 3½" (Y1009). The stamps in the Beloved Bouquet set are:

You should have arrived here from ***Paper Goodness: Creating from the Heart by Jacquelin Green***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

I created two cards for this hop. I originally planned to create one, but the oval that remained after I created the first card kept calling out to me. I used first and second generation stamping and masking on both cards.

I also decorated the inside of this card.

On my second card I also used tone-on-tone stamping which makes it a little difficult to see the second generation stamping, but I am still pleased with the resulting card.

I have not decided if I will also stamp inside or just add the note I have planned.

Before you head to ***Snips, Snaps, and Scraps by Kathy Burrows***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not working with a CTMH Independent Consultant yet, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Online Business Address.

I love to hear what people think of my crafts, so if you have a moment I would be delighted if you leave a comment. So you do not have to scroll back up, the next stop on the hop is ***Snips, Snaps, and Scraps by Kathy Burrows***.

Thank you for visiting today. I hope you are enjoying the hop.


Thank you for leaving a comment! I enjoy reading them.
