October SOTM (Thanks & Giving) Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring Octobers’s SOTM, which is Thanks & Giving, a set of 16 stamps. If you have come here from Catherine Nowak ‘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. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

This month Close To My Heart Consultants are sharing their creations using this month’s SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. To follow along just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

Products used are all Close to My Heart: Thanks & Giving stamp set, Inks (Fern, Saffron, Almond, Toffee, Cranberry), Cardstock (Fern, Almond), Vellum, and Gold Glitter Gems.

Here is a layout created with all stamping, it’s a great way to get the most out of your stamps. Everything is stamped – the background paper, border, and title! I created the background by random stamping the leaf stamp in different colors on vellum paper. I created a garland-style border with another stamp and added the small heart for extra color. The Gold Glitter Gems are the icing on the cake – I use these for everything now! They are a must-have item!

Now “Hop” on over to Melinda Everitt’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 Thanks & Giving stamp set is only available until October 31! Visit my website to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
