March CTMH Blog Hop

Welcome to the March Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  This is my first time participating, so I hope you enjoy it!  If you are coming here from Jean's blog, then you are on the right track.  If you are just starting with ME, then at the end of this post, you will find another consultant's blog to move on to.

This month's stamp set is Potential (S1203). You can purchase this stamp set for $17.95 or get it for just $5 when you purchase $50 worth of products from me.
I made three cards for the hop using White Daisy CS that I random stamped in Black Ink.  Then I cut three pieces to make the three cards.

I used White Daisy, Desert Sand, and Black CS, Pewter and Black Brads, and a NEW Durables Stud in Pewter.  They just stick right on.  I also used the Dry Embossing Stylus to score lines on the Desert Sand CS on the card on the right.  Then I sanded the front with the Sanding Kit.

A close up of the standard sized card.  I used the Durable Stud on this card.
This is the second standard sized card (4.25 x 5.5) that I made with the piece of random stamped paper.  I stamped the medallion on a piece of White Daisy cut out with the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  This piece goes around to the back.  The word "Together" was stamped using the masking technique.  Cover up the  words We're in this  with a piece of paper before you stamp.  There are three Black Brads on this card as well as sanding.  The back of the card is shown on the right.

The final card is a 3x3 with the pattern coming from Wishes.  It's called Middle Ground on page 19.  I added Pewter Brads to the front.

Now if you have made it this far, please head on over to Carol's blog to see what she has created.  Thanks for stopping by!
