May 2012 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the May 2012 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring Friendship Bouquet, a set of 8 stamps.  If you have just arrived from {Lori's} blog, you are on the right path.  If you are just starting here, you can join in our circular hop by simply clicking the link to the next blog at the end of each post.

Well, this was definitely cutting it close.  My shipment from Okinawa took the full 60 days to get here (technically, they didn't call me until the 61st day), which has NEVER happened to me before.  So, two short days ago the movers were here.  This was my scrap room Friday afternoon, before the movers were finished.

And this is what it looked like Sunday night.

 And I still have scrap stuff in two other rooms.  Luckily, I was able to "dig up" the supplies I needed to make this cute gift, which would be perfect for introducing yourself to a new neighbor.  I took some seed packets and tied them together with Tan Hemp.  Using a Dimensional Element from the Art Philosophy Collection, I stamped the sentiment in Hollyhock and the leaf in Bamboo.  Had I been able to locate my hole punch, I would have tied on the Dimensional Element, but I just used adhesive to attach it to the seed packet.  The hemp was threaded through the buttons and tied off, leaving the flower-shaped buttons to dangle.

Papers: CTMH Dimensional Elements
Inks: CTMH Bamboo and Hollyhock
Tools and Techniques: CTMH Hemp, CTMH Pink Assortment Buttons, CTMH Blue Assortment Buttons
Stamp Sets: CTMH Friendship Bouqet

Remember, Friendship Bouquet is only available May 1-31, 2012.  Contact your consultant or click {here} to find out how to get your own.
