January's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we have around 60 Close To My Heart consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. We will be featuring January's SOTM, which is "True Friends", a set of 11 stamps. If you have come here from Kami's Blog, you are on the right path! If you get lost along the way, refer to the list in my post from yesterday. Either way, make sure to make the complete circle. You won't want to miss any of the beautiful creations these talented consultants have made!
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.....!







This card features the beautiful new Creative Basics, "Veranda", from the new Spring Idea Book. I used "Juniper" cardstock for my base. The frames were embossed with gold powder and then overstamped with brown Stazon ink to give them more of a bronze look. I cut one of the frames in half to make a sort of buckle for the ribbon layers. Both the top layer of papers and the center frame were mounted with foam tape. Hopefully, you can see the layers in the picture below.




Now hop on over to Pamela's blog to see her beautiful artwork!


Hope your New Year is filled with many blessings!
