February SOTM: Wild About Love

It's February, and if you know Close to My Heart, you know what that means...a brand-new idea book and oodles of new products and inspiration! Of course, we are kicking off the Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book season with the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from Maria's blog, welcome! If this is your first stop, following along is easy. Simply click on the link provided at the bottom of each post to be taken to the next blog in the hop. By the time you arrive back here (or your original starting point), you are sure to be inspire and simply wild about this month's fun Stamp of the Month set!

The February Stamp of the Month, Wild About Love (S1402) is a fun set of 9 stamps which will probably have you humming (or even outright singing) the popular, catchy, and perhaps somewhat odd song! Adorable little foxes and a few fun phrases make this set perfect for Valentine's Day or any day you want to tell someone you are wild about them!

While pinks, reds and purples are perfect for love and Valentine's Day, I decided to give my foxes a bit more of a masculine feel. I paired them with the brand-new Timberline paper packet which provided fun color scheme of Goldrush and Lagoon. 

The speech bubble can be found in the Quotes Dimensional Elements set or cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge. To stamp the sentiment, I used the masking technique to stamp the two words in different colors and orientations. Each fox was given just a touch of bling with the Sparkles-Brown & Tan Assortment.

 There you have you know the answer to the question, 'What does the fox say?"

Thanks for joining us for this month's blog hop. Time to head on over to Shirley's blog to see what she has created to share with us!

Remember, the February SOTM is only available through Febraury 28th. Order yours today for $17.95 or just $5 when you place a minimum $50 order! Visit my CTMH website to get your set today!
