Welcome to the April Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop! This month's set is called Blessed. This set of ten (12) stamps are great for two part stamping and work for a variety of uses.

If you have come here from Melinda Everitt's Blog you have seen some of the great work from our CTMH consultants! We have about fifty Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations, using the Sensational SOTM and other great CTMH products.

It is simple to follow our blog hop - just click on the link at the end of the post to move to the next one!

Here is what I made this month:
The papers and colors are from the Bliss paper pack. I used the waterbrush and ink pads to color the flowers.  This is a heat embossed technique with marker tracing the outline and then I used a waterbrush to enhance the image.

Here is a detail shot of the butterfly.

Here is a second card that was made with watercolor pen and ink from the pads, to color in the image and the roses are made with paper from the Bliss paper pack.  The accordian fold flower is made with a scrap of cardstock which was sprayed with sunflower and create-a-shade in the spray pen.

Here is a detail of the flowers.

Remember, the April SOTM is only available until April 30! Contact your CTMH Consultant to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

Napkin Card Video

Let's see if I got this right!  The belly band portion is below.  Sorry for the low volume!  This is my first attempt at a video and I thought I was close enough to the camera when I was speaking.  There is soooo much to have together to get a video together in one shot.  I am even further amazed by my fellow consultants, who do these on a regular basis.
