April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring April's SOTM, which is You Are..., a set of 15 stamps. I love this set.  It works great for cards and scrapbook pages. 

If you have come here from Lalia Harris's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Helen's Blog and start from the beginning! This month we have over 60 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.....

Here's the easel card I made with this set:

The products I used were:

S1204 You are...  SOTM set
CC1017 Dotty For You Paper Pack (which you can get for $5, with a purchase of $35 in product, starting April 17th)
X5919 Sorbet & Garden Green Cardstock from the Autumn Paperpack
Z2192 Pacifica Ink Pad
Z1690 Bitty Buds Assortment
Z1151 Foam Tape
Z1686 Art Philosphy Cricut Cartridge

I cut the scallop square card with the AP cartridge. I then cut 2 scallop squaures, one out of Dotty For You paper and one from Sorbet Cardstock.   I folded the cover of the card in half and using double sided tape stuck the CS square to it to create the easel.  These are fun and easy cards to make:)

A Few More Postcards to Share

I received a few more postcards I just have to share. 

This first one is from a 3 year old boy!!  My son saw it and said "this is genius" and quoted Picasso "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." I have to agree with him:)

This next one is from Bree Kapitan.  I love all the collage's beautiful.

The next one is from Darlene.  I love how whimsical this one is:)

The last one I have to share is from Loretta Lloyd. I love the antique postcard feel this one has!  Beautiful.

Thank you to all the amazing artist for sharing your artwork with me.
