This month we have over 50 consultants sharing what they created with this month's beautiful stamp.  Following the hop is easy, just click on the link for the next blog at the end of each post! Have fun hopping!

I created three cards with this stamp using Florentine paper pack (X7153B).   I love this paper so much I had to get two packs!  I thought Florentine was just perfect for this stamp!  Here are my three cards. Keep scrolling down, I will also show each one separately.

First my favorite of the three....

This is a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 square card.  I used Olive cardstock to mat my papers.  I LOVE the stripe paper from this pack.  I used the smaller flourish (pictured above) to create my center flower.  Each time I stamped the flourish, I stamped on top of the left tip angling the stamp to form 'petals'.  I used ribbon from the Cocoa Designer Ribbon Collection (Z1316) and a button from the Bohemian Assortment (Z1687).

This card is a 5x7 card.  I used my Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut the circle and then stamped with Cocoa ink.  I cut another circle just 1/4" larger from Twilight cardstock.  I added Mocha Opaque Adhesive Gems (Z1333).  The wide cocoa ribbon is also from the Cocoa Designer Ribbon Collection.

The idea for this 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card came to me one night as I was getting ready for bed.  (That happens to me all the time - and then I worry about remembering it the next day!)  Again, I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut the circle for the stamp image in the center.  I centered it on top of 2 flourishes that I stamped directly on the paper.  My "Together" banner is adhered across the larger flourish.  And here, I used more of the Cocoa Designer Ribbon Collection! 

REMEMBER! This stamp is available only from March 1 - March 31 for just $5 when you purchase $50 or more in Close To My Heart products!  

Thank you for stopping by!  Now hop on along to Leanne Dudley's blog to see what she has created!
