May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Just Sayin'

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We are featuring May's SOTM called "Just Sayin'".  If you have come here from Pam'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 on Melinda’s Blog:

I choose to make a card using our National Scrapbooking Paper packet called Taste of Summer.  I love the purple, green and yellow together. This paper packet is only available in May and you can get yours by clicking HERE

I used a sketch from Retro Sketches blog to create my card.  I used my Shin Han marker to color the white shimmer trim so it would match and I used the stamp set Have a Happy Day. Thanks for looking!

Now "Hop" on over to Michele'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 May SOTM is only available until the 31st! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!

Artfully Sent Happy Birthday Card

Here is an easy peasy birthday card I made for my nephew.  I thought it turned out pretty neat.  
Here's what I did:

Cut card from Daisy White cardstock. Artfully Sent Cartridge, 7", Sentiment (page 27)
Cut the inside sentiment - keep your dial at 7", Icon , (page 27)

Open the card and use your scraps to line the area behind the cut outs.  This is when your Bonding Memories Glue Pen comes in handy.

This is what it looks like after all the words are covered up.

Now to cover up that mess.  Cut a piece of cardstock 4 3/4 x 6 3/4 and adhere securely over the mess.

I used the frame left over from Happy Birthday sentiment to trace on the blue cardstock the liner for the sentiment. See those 2 white squares - they are little tiny pieces of glitter cardstock - don't want to waste those - they make perfect stars. 

And here is what the sentiment looks like on the inside.  I used some foam tape to pop it up.  

Like I said - easy peasy and perfect for a boy.

You can get your own Artfully Sent Cartridge HERE.
