January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Cross-Stitch Wishes S1401

If you've just arrived here from DANA's BLOG,
then you are on the correct path.

 This month I created this standard-size card featuring the Huntington papers X7147B. Ink colors I stamped with include Barn Red, Cashmere, Cocoa, Goldrush, and Olive. Card design is inspired by Make It From Your Heart (MIFYH) Volume 1 - Pattern 29. The flowers were created with the paper-piecing technique (edges of the cut-out pieces were sponge-daubed with coordinating ink before adhering them on top). Embellished with Bronze Shimmer Trim Z1849, Brown & Tan Sparkles Z1753, and Hemp Baker's Twine Z1937. I've also used just a little bit of an additional stamp set (Keyboard Uppercase Alphabet B1416) to stamp the letters U and R.

Here are all of the images (below) included in this stamp set
that is available during January 2014 only:

Now you can continue with the hop and be inspired by more creative ideas using this stamp set by visiting JUDY's BLOG next!
Enjoy the hop!!
