Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring December's SOTM, which is called Special Care, a sweet set of 6 tags.  If you have come here from LORI'S BLOG, you are on the right path! 

This month we have 50+ Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM (and other great CTMH products) on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! If you get lost you can find the list of all the hoppers HERE. Let's go!

This month I used a sketch from Retro Sketches and the ColourQ Challenge color combo to create this quick card. I cut the ticket shapes using the Art Philosophy cartridge. It's SO awesome to have cricut shapes to fit your stamps! I stamped the SOTM image in Lagoon, Pear, and Sunset Inks. Then I stamped the second label in Cocoa ink and trimmed it by hand because I wanted it super close. The Cocoa CS background is stamped with another label image, then sanded heavily.
I used a glitter nailpolish by Nicole for OPI called Pick of the Glitter to paint the edges of my stamped labels and the Um Wow teensy laser cut stars I used to embellish my card. I wouldn't use it on a scrapbook page, but it was just the right colors for this card project! Dabs of Almond glitter glitz finished off the labels...which I'm currently hoarding and ordering more as my beloved glitter glitz gel is on the RETIRED LIST. Sob!

Now "Hop" on over to MICHELLE'S BLOG to see her TWEET work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants Blogs to soak in the great crafting and SOTM ideas! Remember, this SOTM will be gone at the end of December!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set for just $5!
