Blog Hop! Balloon Talk

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring April 's SOTM, which is Balloon Talk, a set of 24 stamps.  If you have come here from Pam Trostle'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 about 55 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 used random stamping of the open word baloons in Slate ink to create my background.  Then I cut the word balloon shapes from the Artiste and Artbooking Cricut Cartridges, embossed them with the polka dot folder and stamped in black in on a cut shape for the "Thanks".  It came together very quickly and I am happy with how it turned out!  See how you can get a Cricut Cartridge for free in the information at the bottom of this post. 

Or "Hop" on over to Keely'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 SOTM is only available until !  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

  1. Love your random stamping of the word balloons & the embossing on the Cricut cut ones! Great card! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. This is great, I love the word balloons stamped in the background kept in slate, it really makes a statement, it makes the rest of the card pop.

  3. Love this card! Represents Spring so well and it is just happy!
