Close To My Heart Product Spotlight Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome to the February 2012 Product Spotlight Blog Hop. In this hop, each participant chose one alphabet stamp to spotlight.Luisa has chosen the Pennant stamp set. Didn't she do a marvelous job?

I chose the Polka Dot stamp set. It is a D-sized (D1469) set and retails for $17.95 plus shipping and tax. There are 51 stamps that include all uppercase letters, numbers 0-9, and assorted punctuation. I used this stamp set to stamp the title "MY HERO" on the tag. I love that the spots on the stamps don't take the ink and show up whatever color is underneath.

I also made this quick and easy birthday card using the word Happy in the polka dot stamped in Moonstruck ink and the stamp "birthday" which is from the It's Your Day Retired Stamp of the month from 2009 in Cranberry ink. The image was cut from a spellbinders die and layered on a slightly larger die cut. A layer of the striped side of the B&T from Superhero paper pack was placed along the center of the card front. The focal image was attached to the card itself using 3-D foam tape along the outer edges of the image and glued down the center. This gives the image an open book appearance.

Now, hop on over to Nikka to see what she created using the Trinity stamp set.


  1. Nice layout and that card is super cute!

  2. Gotta love that superhero pack - great alphabet too :) Perfect for your birthday card!

  3. Hero is one of my fave papers from new ide abook. Lovely layout and card! Great use of the POLKA DOT Stamp set.

  4. Cute ideas! I generally think that polka dots are girly, but they look terrific (and not girly at all) with Superhero. Way to rock it!
