CTMH Cherishing Her SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the February 2020 SOTM Blog Hop featuring the stamp set Cherishing Her. This month there are just over 20 Consultants sharing projects created with the CTMH Stamp Of The Month Cherishing Her. Continuing to visit the next blog (typically via a link near the bottom of their post) will take you full circle back to where you started.

Cherishing Her Stamp Set
I was debating how to use this stamp set. When I learned that someone my family knew my entire life (longer really) died on Thursday, I knew a sympathy card would be a great use of the bouquet. With one of my favorite stamps sets back for Stampaganza, Card Chatter—Sympathy, I was ready to create.

card created for Cherishing Her Blog Hop
I wanted to make the bouquet pop, but I also did not want an ordinary plain background, so I cut rectangles from the lighter and darker side of Julep. I used a low tack tape to hold both die cuts together while I applied them to the card front. After stamping the bouquet on French Vanilla cardstock, I fussy cut it using a craft knife and glass cutting mat, then I colored it using TriBlend™ Markers.

Before you head to ***Lauren Moore's CTMH Craftings***, 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 already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Consultant website.

If you have a little time I would love to read your comment letting me know what you think of this idea. I hope you are enjoying the projects created with Cherishing Her — February Stamp of the Month. Thank you for hopping with us!
