CTMH: May Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop

It's time for another Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop!  If you arrived from Haley's blog, you're on the right track.

Welcome to May!  Now, if only someone would tell the weather.  My tulips, which are normally almost done by now haven't even bloomed, although I'm finally seeing some buds.  As I write this, it's cold, almost winter coat cold!  I'm eagerly awaiting warmer weather.  But hopefully, these bright, fun cards I've created will help brighten your day.

Here is the stamp set we're highlighting this month:

I absolutely love this fun set!  The images are so cute.  I wanted them to stand out and they're perfect for standing alone.  Here are the three cards I made with my favourite images from the set:

The card bases are all top-folding, which made it easier to tie the Baker's Twine around the card front.  All the images were stamped with pigment inks.  I used my craft heater to make sure it was really dry before I coloured the top ribbon and the bottom apple.  See list below for supplies used.

Now, it's time to hop on over to Susan's blog and find out what fun projects she created with this set.  And remember, this stamp set is only available for the month of May, so contact your consultant to get your hands on one.

Supplies used:
You've Got a Friend stamp set
Chocolate Baker's Twine (retired)
Sparkles: brown & tan (retired)
Pigment inks: Black, Chocolate and Cranberry
