January SOTM Bog Hop ~ Every Thank You

Welcome to the January SOTM Blog Hop!

If you are coming here from MELINDA EVERITT’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating Makers on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 18 Makers participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

I think this is one of my favorite stamp of the months. The reason I say this is thank you cards are my second most used card next to birthday cards.

I have been really enjoying making slimline cards and was so excited that Close to My Heart has come out with Slimline Cards and Envelopes. I used the Happiness Lives Here Paper Pack for the patterned paper. I then created my own background for the next layer. I stamped one of the “thanks” using VersaMark Ink and then used Clear Embossing Powder. Then using Tattered Rose Oxide Ink and a bit of Abandoned Coral Oxide Ink to create the background. I then added stickers from the Happiness Lives Here Paper Pack. I added a wooden heart from the Happiness Lives Here Wood Shapes and a couple of the Blue Belle Glitter Gems.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of JANUARY If you are a member of the Close To My Heart VIP program and you place a qualifying order of $50 in the US, you will get the stamp for FREE!!
