December SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the December Stamp of the Month blog hop! If you have come here from Deb's blog you are on the right path.
Once again, we have over 60 consultants sharing their incredible artwork. Be sure and make the entire circle, because you won't want to miss any of it.
This month's featured set is "Notice the Details". It is a set of 41 stamps. I think this is a great set for scrapbook pages and calendars, however I wanted to do something different with it. It was a challenge, but this is what I came up with. I used the binder clip and bracket stamps to make the flower. The paper is from the "Twitterpated" paper pack.

Now hop on over to Jamia's blog and take a look at what she has designed. This is a circle hop so keep going until you get back here. If you get lost or want to complete the circle at another time you can see the entire list of participants in my post below.

Happy Hopping!

Flourished Blessings

This is a card that I made with my stamp club ladies this month. It is 6 x 6, and made with paper from CTMH's "Grace" paper pack. I love the beautiful autumn colors in this paper.

The stamp set used is "Flourished Blessings". We also embellished with Just Blooms paper flowers and buttons from the "Basic" craft buttons.

November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

We have 64 Close To My Heart consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. We are featuring "Around the Block", a set of 26 stamps. If you have come here from Nancy's Blog, you are on the right path! If you get lost along the way, you may want to go back to Jena's Blog and start from the beginning, or refer to the complete list in my post from yesterday. 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.....!

I used this cute set to make a Thanks for your hospitality card. The house is paper pieced and pop dotted. The alphabet used on the front is "Homestead", which retires the end of this year. Inside the card is lined with paper from the "Grace" paper pack. On the left is a stamp from the "Solo T" stamp set.
Now "Hop" on over to Sylvia's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting, and other fun ideas! Remember, the November SOTM is only available until 11/30/09! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!
