January Stamp of the Month: Happy Valentine's Day

Happy New Year's! No sooner do we watch that ball drop in Times Square and we are thinking about Valentine's Day! Our January Stamp of the Month, Happy Valentine's might just be exactly what you need to get some of those creative juices flowing - in plenty of time for making cards and gifts for all those you hold near and dear!

Welcome to the January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month, we are featuring over 45 talented Close to My Heart Consultants. If you arrived from Susan Brooks' blog, you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, simply follow the links at the bottom of each post until you arrive right back here.

The January Stamp of the Month set, Happy Valentine's is a beautiful set of seven stamps. Gorgeous line-image roses ready to be shaded and colored with our new alcohol inks markers, and a few heart-felt sentiments!

This standard-sized card pairs the Happy Valentine's set with the La Belle Vie My Reflections paper packet. I love how crisp and clear the roses look simply stamped in black. I added a little Shimmer Trim and Black Tulle for the finishing touches!

Remember, the Happy Valentine's set is only available through January. You can order it for $17.95 or add it to a $50 order for just $5. And don't forget about our adorable Whoo's Your Valentine? special going on through January as well...with a $35 order, you can add the Whoo's Your Valentine? kit for just $10 (add another $5 to your order and BAM, you've earned the discounted Stamp of the Month)!

Time to hop along to Nikka Geers' blog to see what she created to share with us. And of course, after you've checked out the hop, head on over to my website (or your own consultant's site) and order your Happy Valentine's set AND your Whoo's Your Valentine? kit!
