Feb. Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Thoughtful Tidings

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring February's SOTM, which is Thoughtful Tidings, a set of 11 stamps. If you have come here from Shirley's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here .

This month we have 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I decided to use this Stamp of the Month to make some simple little gifts.  I made a gift card holder and a box of Hershey's hugs.

Supplies used (all CTMH unless noted):
Level 2 Stella Paper Pack
Thoughtful Tidings Stamp Set
Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
(for gift tag, hearts, ovals, ticket tags)
Paradise Assortment  Baker's Twine
Neutral Assortment Baker's Twine
Cocoa ink
Sponge (for inking edges)
Soft Set Eyelets (retired)

Clear Box from Clear Bags
Hershey's Hugs
Barnes and Noble Gift Card

I did make the gift card tag bigger than I needed for the gift card so that I could highlight more of the stamps of this terrific set.  I cut that at 5.75" for the back and 5.5" for the lining and pocket.  All other cuts were made based on the carrier sheet recommendations for sizes. Paper behind each were cut .25" larger.  Hearts were cut at 1.25", backed with cocoa cardstock cut at 1.5".

Now "Hop" on over to Melinda's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the February SOTM is only available until Feb. 29! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!
