CTMH Hostess Exclusive Stamps - Blog Hop

Thank you for joining my team, the "Heartfelt Sentiments", as we highlight our Hostess Exclusive Stamp Sets.  There are 11 stamp sets that can only be obtained if you host a Gathering (aka Party).  What does it take to host a party?  Just $150 in orders or $150 purchase if you want to treat yourself!  These exclusive stamp sets can are offered at a great savings, several dollars off their retail price.  Check them out in our online catalog, "Annual Inspirations", beginning on page 5 and continuing through page 10.  Click here for the online version.

If you are coming from Debi's Blog, you are on the right track, and I KNOW you saw some cute artwork using the "Hats Off" stamp set!  You can find a list of all participants at the end of this post.

I chose to highlight the "Be Jolly" stamp set.  I tend to be one who is ready for Christmas when it arrives in December but this stamp set is a good reason to do Christmas in August!  :)
This card started out with me using a different patterned paper and then I saw this cute polka dot pattern that comes with the "Snowhaven" paper pack and...I was in love! It is so cute and I can see some great potential with it, beyond Christmas or Winter-themed projects.
I kept this card rather simple, using Silver Glitter Paper, Black Sequins, Clear Sparkles, and Red Glitter Gems to bling it up a bit.
Here, I stamped the sentiment on a Dimensional Element, added some bling, and decorated this fun Designer Creations Ruby Paper Bag.  It is perfect for a fun little goodie.  They also come in Slate and Lagoon.
Head on over to Tonya's Blog as she showcases some fun artwork using "Happy Hexagons".  Be sure to let me know how you like these creations and this stamp set!

Happy hoppin'!
