Welcome to our CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring August's SOTM called Wicked, which is a sassy set of 9 stamps. I am in LOVE with the adorable little cat, and you'll find 2 additional posts from earlier this week with more Wicked art in them!
If you have come here from TERRIE'S BLOG you are on the right path. If you get lost, you may want to go back to Helen's Blog to find the entire list of blog hoppers! This month we have over 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing wonderful artistic creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!
I stamped and embossed the house in different pieces on Colonial White Cardstock. Then I used my watercolor pencils and blending pen to fill in the outlines and fuzzy cut out each piece. I filled the windows with two layers of liquid glass for more dimension, and used my Creme Brulee marker to add a few more shadows.
I added a stamped graduated background using that adorable honeycomb pattern from Wicked. I started at the top going full strength, first generation ink and gradually started stamping off towards the bottom. I could use this background stamp on SO many projects...as you probably saw on my two other cards from this week.
One final product note - se my adorable sentiment sign? That's stamped in a combo of a sentiment flourish from Wicked and the actual sentiment from Around the Block...and held up with one of my FAVORITE new things! I know, it's not sparkly, but I am so happy about the new Pin Clips! It's a pin...with a little circular clip at the top so you can pop out sentiments or little birds and butterflies...adorable! It's going to be a new go to basic for me. Once again CTMH has given me something that I love so much and didn't even know I needed!
