February SOTM Blog Hop!!

Welcome to our February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring the February SOTM - Thoughtful Tidings S1202! If you have come here from Lori's blog then you are on the correct path.
Today I am sharing a simple standard size card featuring the Florentine Paper Packet X7153B (colors are Bamboo, Brown Bag, Cocoa, Colonial White, Creme Brulee, Garden Green, Goldrush, Olive, Twilight, and Vanilla Cream). To create the base of this card (shown at the top) I used the background stamp from the Florentine WOTG stamp set G1038 to stamp the background with Desert Sand ink on my Colonial White cardstock base. As usual, I used by AP Cricut Cartridge to cut many of the shapes on this card (Rctngle8 cut from Colonial White 1.5", Rctngle8 cut from Goldrush 1.75", Cupcake/Shift/Font from Goldrush at 2" to make the flower, and Petal1/Shift/FontLayer from Olive cardstock at 2"). Stamping and edge distressing was done with Cocoa ink (except for the paper Butterfly that was sponged with Desert Sand ink). I'm including a view of all of the images included in the SOTM set (below), as this set includes so many great sentiments that I will be sure to use over and over again! You can see (all the images outlined in red) that most of these sentiments coordinate well with our Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge!
Thank you for stopping by! Now you can continue on the hop by visiting Brae's blog next! Enjoy!!
