Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring October's SOTM, which is called Scandinavian Wishes, a festive set of 16 stamps. If you have come here from JOY'S BLOG, you are on the right path!
This month we have dozens of 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! Here we go!
This month I wanted to make a clean and simple card using this set. I grabbed this sketch from Retro Sketches because I loved the funky flap at the top. I tried the flap a few ways before deciding a little swiss dot embossing was right for me. I love the look of Colonial White ink on Kraft, and our clear acrylic material makes it so easy to line up a repeating pattern like I stamped on my card base.
I paper pieced the little bird, stamping him twice in Olive and twice in Cranberry ink. I refrained from going all googly eyed on this sweet little bird and gave him a bitty sparkle instead. I added a tiny dot of green glitter glitz to the center of each stamped flower for a bit of holiday sparkle.
Now "Hop" on over to FANCY MELISSA'S BLOG to see her Scandinavian Wishes! Be sure to visit all the Consultants Blogs to soak in the great crafting and SOTM ideas! Remember, this SOTM will fly away at the end of October, so contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set for just $5!
