Jan. SOTM Blog Hop

Hi, Stampers and Scrappers!  Welcome to the Close To My Heart
January Stamp of the Month blog hop! 
If you have come here from Sheila's blog, you are on the right path.  This month's featured stamp set is called "Find Your Style."  It is a set of 9 gorgeous girly stamps and is available NOW through Jan. 31st only!  Find out how to get yours at a discount or FREE on my website HERE.
For my card,  I chose the dress form and paired it with the stunning "Wings" paper pack.  Check it out:


Don't you just love these colors--black, sweet leaf, and vineyard berry.  I also used black embossing powder, a black button from our Mini-Medley Accents Collection, and black brads.  The flower is made with our beautiful double-sided B&T papers and it fluffs up to give this card an extra dose of amazing dimension.  Here's a shot of the fluffy flower:


To make the flower, just punch out five scalloped circles (yes, all the same size), fasten them together in the center with a brad, adhere a button on top of the brad if you wish, and crumple each layer tightly around the button/brad.  Then uncrumple carefully and voila!  A gorgeous blossom!  Now hop on over to Doreen's blog and check out her awesome creation!  But before you go, leave me a comment and let me know what you think!  Happy New Year!
