May Stamp of the Month Hop

Hi there!!  Welcome to my blog and thanks for "hopping" by!  If you came from Jenifer Benner's blog you are heading in the right direction.

This month we are showing you ideas using the May Stamp of the Month set by Close To My Heart!

The set is called "Cherish the Moment" and it is a checklist style set.  I was terribly nervous when I first saw this set because I'm part of a swap group and for that group I was required to make a card.  I see these checklist sets as being more scrapbook friendly- especially this set in particular.  I will say though- this card came together quickly for me!

I chose to use the "Thank you" checklist as this one seemed the most "card friendly!"
X7123B Cherry-O Level 2 paper
D1421 Cherish The Moment stamps
Z2166 Tulip Ink Pad
Z2111 Chocolate Ink Pad
Z1104 Clear Sparkles
Z1313 Stardust Glitz Glitter
Z1126 Colonial White Designer Ribbon
Z1151 3-D Foam Tape

 It's hard to see the glitter but it's on the cherry that is on the main image as well as dotted randomly on the background cherry paper- I love the sparkle!!  The stamped image is cut out and adhered to the Tulip cardstock which is "popped" from the card front using the foam tape.

Hope you enjoy this card- next stop on the hop is:  Mary Eisen
