March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s blog hop!  Thank you for stopping by.  If you’re just starting here, no worries, it’s a big loop which will bring you back here.  If you're lost, you can  find the whole list of hoppers here.
If you came from {Carla’s blog}, you’re on the right path.
All these project were created using March SOTM “Potential” which is available only this month for just $5 with a $50 purchase or for $17.95.  If you love what you see, click {here} to purchase your very own set in the month of March. 
My card was made simply by taking the large flourish on the left side of the stamp set and stamping with Crème Brulee.  I never knew I would love Crème Brulee’s color by looking at it in the catalog but it’s been my go-to yellow/gold for the last 6 months!  I meant this card to be a Valentine for my husband but I forgot about it and made another one at the very last minute!  Oh well, so much for planning ahead!

Thanks for visiting.  Now hop on over to {Judy’s blog} to see her creation.

While working on a project for a challenge this week, I came up short on some items.  I don’t have any of these little beauties from CTMH.  And I need them now

So I decided to improvise. 
Using one of the B&T papers from the Lucy collection, I cut the scalloped rose on my Cricut using my Art Philosophy cartridge at 1.75.”  I turned down the speed to medium and made certain my paper was well adhered to the mat. 
Here’s my tip for rolling such small items:  Spray them with water or a mix of rubbing alcohol mixed with our Perfect Pear paints in a Mini Mister and start by wrapping them around our piercing tool.  The paper had to be soft and flexible in order to make a smooth roll, otherwise it would have just folded at the bottom of each petal. 
Aside from the spritzing, they didn’t take any longer than a big flower.  I rolled all 6 while watching a movie with my sweetheart.  They held their shape until this afternoon when I glued them together with Liquid Glass.
In the next week, I’ll post the finished project. Until then, have a crafty day!
Here’s what I used.  Click each tile for more info.
