September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Family is Forever

Good Morning,


Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring September's SOTM, which is "Family Is Forever."  If you have come here from Julia Hammond's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  

This month we have approximately 80 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. 

I had a lot of fun using this set with the Snowhaven papers

I know, I know... these are a Wintery/Christmasy themed paper, but look  how great it looks for a Valentines Day or Anniversary themed card. I made this card for my hubby... our 20th Anniversary is right around the corner.

Don't you think the Glacier (brand NEW color) and Ruby cardstock go very well together? I am going to have a lot of fun with this color combo, I can tell!

 For this card, I used the leaves and branches from the tree to add a nice background to the Ruby cardstock rather than making it the focal point of my card. Instead, the hearts became "the heart of the design"... so punny!

Here is a closer look at the details I added to really make this card sing... it did not take a lot. I simply inked the edges of the Glacier and Whisper cardstock, added some silver sequins (another NEW product) and some sparkles. Wah-Lah! I love it.

Now "Hop" on over to Donna Digby'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 SOTM is only available until September 30th so contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!

Love the card. It really would look great hanging on a wall. It reminds me of visiting my grandparents in Pennsylvania when I was younger and seeing all of the Pennsylvania Dutch decorations.
