February SOTM - A Happy Hello

Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! 

 This month we are featuring over 60 Close to my Heart Consultants showcasing their artwork for the A Happy Hello stamp of the month.

So sit back, relax and grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the amazing artwork!

If you have come here from Krista's Blog then you are on the right track, if not that is fine too!  This hop makes a complete circle!
Here is what the stamp of the month looks like:

Here is what I made using this stamp set:

I used the Wishes How - To book pattern Top View for a 3 1/2 x 8 card.
I used some paper from the Wanderful Paper Packet (blue & white polka dot).  I used Colonial white as my card base.  I used Flaxen and Smoothie Cardstock also.

I stamped "A Happy Hello" in Smoothie ink right on the card base.  I stamped the stem of the flower in Flaxen in right on the card.  I stamped the flower base in Smoothie Ink, the next image in Crystal Blue Ink and then the inside image in Smoothie ink.  I put a green epoxy bubble in the center from the Blue & Green Epoxy Bubble set.  I did use 3-d foam tape to pop the flower and the strips.  I used some Flaxen Extra Thick twine to tie around the strips.  I used a sponge dauber in Flaxen ink to distress all the pieces. 

Better view of the flower with the 3-d foam tape.
