August SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we have over 60 Close To My Heart consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. We will be featuring August's SOTM, which is "It's Your Day", a set of 26 stamps. If you have come here from Leslie's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Jena's Blog and start from the beginning! Either way, make sure to make the complete circle. You won't want to miss any of the beautiful creations these talented consultants have made!

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 is what I call a box card, because it folds like you would fold the top of a box. I'm not sure if there is another name for this, but I thought it showcased this stamp set well. The closed card makes a 5 x 5 inch square, and unfolds to reveal the sentiment. It is hard to tell from the picture, but the squares with words, are trimmed with prisma glitter and the presents are decorated with black embossing powder that has prisma glitter added to it. The bows are also embossed.

I used Close to my Heart's wonderful textured cardstock in Black, White Daisy and Watermelon to make this card. I love that CTMH's textured cardstock is two-toned. It is wonderful for cards; giving you a lighter color for the inside of the card. Inks used are also Black and Watermelon.

Now "Hop" on over to Laurie's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the August SOTM is only available until 8/31/09! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!
