Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
This month we are featuring the October SOTM from the 2010 Autumn/Winter Idea Book, which is D1443 Share the Magic, a set of 12 stamps.
This month, myself and my fellow Close To My Heart Consultants are sharing our creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on our blogs. To follow along on the hop - just click on the link at the end of this post to move to the next one! Here we go!
This month I chose to create a card using our new 4-1/2” Colonial White Circle Cards with envelopes and the Wishes Card Confidence Program pattern, Inner Court. I also used the Mistletoe Level 2 Paper Packet, Red & Pink Embroidery Floss Assortment, and Opaque Pearl Adhesive Gems.
I did some paper piecing using the SOTM, so there was no coloring involved. Also, along the edges of the Colonial White Cardstock, I stippled with Cocoa Ink.
Let me briefly explain what ‘stippling’ is…
You will need a stipple brush from CTMH’s Texture Tools Kit, an ink pad and B&T Duos or Cardstock.
Ink your stipple brush generously with your desired ink.
Then gently brush the edges of your paper, preferably from the outer edge into the middle of the paper. This will give your paper an antique look.
Now "Hop" on over to Kami's Blog to see her fabulous works of art! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!
Remember, the October SOTM is only available until October 31, 2010! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even FREE!
Have a blessed day and make it from your heart!
