March CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the March Blog Hop. There are several talented Close to My Heart consultants creating something with the March Stamp of the Month. If you hopped over from Kim's Blog you're on the right track. If you keep hopping you will eventually wind up right back there.

Using the Stamp of the Month for March, I created my own patterned paper. I started with the largest stamp, then the next largest, moving around the page in triangles, I kept adding the next stamp until I got to the smallest, which I used to "fill-in the empty spaces. Here is what I ended up with:

Now, I cut a piece off this page to make a card background. I layered it onto honey cardstock and attached it to a standard A2 card base. I stamped the sentiment from the SOTM and layered it onto Honey Cardstock also. I added the ribbon with a nice knot and Voila! Here is my finished card.

Now, hop on over to Tamra's Blog and see what magnificence she has in store for you.


  1. Love your random stamping background..beautiful card.

  2. Wow - very different from the others so far! Great idea!

  3. Beautiful paper. I wish I could make such nice designer papers. You have given me some inspiration to try again.
