February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring February’s SOTM, “Home Sweet Home” which is  a set of 4 stamps. If you have come here from Tamytha’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 on Helen’s blog.
This stamp set is $17.95 or just $5 with a $50 purchase.  It’s number is S1302A.  Do you know how they get their number?  S is for Stamp of the month, 13 is for 2013, and 02 is for February.  I know somebody out there had an “ah-ha moment.” If that wasn’t you give yourself a big pat on the back.

My card is a pocket card made from a pattern on page 81 of in Jeanette Lynton’s first card making book “Originals Card Confidence Program.”

These were discontinued a year ago. But with much feedback to CTMH, they’re baaaaaackkkkkk! This time it’s a soft cover edition and only $14.95! It’s item # 9036. I didn’t own this book until recently so I’ve been trying out many of the patterns because they are new to me.  So what’s old is new again!   (FYI—these links will only work after 2/1/13)
This card features the new Chantilly paper pack, Pink Glitter Gems and another new stamp set called “Girls Rock”  The tag & house were cut on the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge as well as the flower & leaves that were stamped with the new Girl’s Rock stamp set.  I hand cut (**gasp**)  the word “home” and “you” after stamping them in Twilight on a scrap of paper.  I promise you, it wasn't hard to cut out these two words.   You’ll survive without your Cricut cartridges for a moment.  I did.  You’ll also need cotton candy & pear inks and a scrap or two of Outdoor Denim and Ruby Cardstock.

This is one of the 4 sentiments in this set.  Here’s what comes in the whole set.  You’ll love these for scrapbooking and card making.  If you love quotations, you’ll be delighted with the new Idea Book that launches tomorrow morning on February 1st.  Pages 90 & 91 have two more stamp sets with quotations!  If you need an Idea Book, let me know via this link.
