Cross Stitch Wishes SOTM Blog hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring January's SOTM, which is called Cross Stitch wishes, a sweet set of 13 stamps.  This month we have dozens of talented Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM (and other great CTMH products) on their blogs. If you have come here from ELIZABETH'S BLOG, you are on the right path! 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!

This month I have two sweet and simple projects for you. The first is this adorable sewing kit card. I embossed the background with my favorite embossing folder. Then I added a strip of Babycakes matted with heavily sanded Garden Green cardstock. I stamped all around the edges with Stitch Wonder in Cashmere ink, a great coordinating stamp set. I stamp the sentiment twice in Dutch Blue and Ruby, then trimmed and layered the final sentiment, which I popped up with 3-D foam tape to make a pocket for my little sewing kit.I topped off my sewing kit pocket with a couple of Keyboard Kraft alpha letters.
Speaking of that tiny sewing kit, how cute is that? I got it from Minimus for just a few cents! I based my card on the Pals Paper Arts Sketch with my color inspiration coming from the CASE Study Challenge
For my second card I wanted to do something super quick. I only had a few minutes to whip them up waiting for my team to arrive for our meeting last night. So I laid out my materials (Baby Pink cardstock, Cross Stitch wishes, Bakers Twine, Slate and Ruby Ink, Liquid Glass, plus my favorite glitter pen) so I could do a ten minute Craft Dash! I stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner of the panel and then the heart on some Artiste baby pink hearts I cut on the cricut, which I mounted on top of the stamped sentiment. Then I stamped the needle off to the upper right. I drew in a curly-q with Liquid Glass, then knotted my twine and formed it to follow the Liquid Glass trail.
I colored my needle with my favorite favorite glitter pen. I trimmed the twine flush to the edge of the card and mounted the panel onto my card base. I was able to whip out the sample in 5 minutes 20 seconds, and create 12 duplicates (minus Liquid Glass drying time) in about 20 minutes. Sew sweet!

Now "Hop" on over to KATY'S BLOG to see her creative work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants Blogs to soak in the great crafting and SOTM ideas!

What a clever idea to include a sewing kit! And your card with the baker's twine is as cute as it can be. I always look forward to your creations.
