CTMH October SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring the October Stamp of the Month: Share the Magic.  If this is your first stop, just continue through the hop until you make it back here.  If you have already started hopping and came from Kami’s blog then you are on the right track.  See the previous post for a complete blog list.

Supplies used are all CTMH: Share the Magic Stamp Set (October SOTM), White Daisy Cardstock, Prisma Glitter, Liquid GlassBlack Bitty Brads, Bonding Memories Glue Pen, Red Sparkles, Watercolor Pencils, Blending Pen, Markers (Holiday Red, New England Ivy, Sunny Yellow, Clover Meadow, Baby Pink, Pacifica, Tulip, Heavenly Blue, Sunkiss Yellow, Key Lime, Taffy, Amethyst, Pear, Desert Sand, Lagoon, and Sunset) and Inks (Black, Outdoor Denim, New England Ivy, Sky, Cranberry, Chocolate, and Brown Bag).

This stamp set is great for making tags.  I just grabbed my pile of scraps and stamped away!  I used markers, watercolor pencils, and a blending pen with inks to color the images.  To add some glitz and dimension I added sparkles to the Christmas tree, glitter to the snowmen, liquid glass to the Christmas lights, and bitty brads to the second snowman.  These would also make a fun and simple craft for your kids or a group.  The presents image works great for any occassion – Birthday, Christmas, or Baby!

Your next stop is Angela’s Blog.  Enjoy the hop!

Bee Happy

I dug into my scrap basket again today.  I think the reason many things are in there is because  I simply don’t care for them, which makes it hard to like the completed project as well.   Anyway…anyone who makes cards has to eventually make a “bee” card.  I got this stamped image from a swap many eons ago and let me tell you I really had to dig for it.  I think it’s the only bee thing I own and that says a lot!  The alphabet stickers are Alphabitties Pixie Serif by Provo Craft.  All other products used are from my stash.

Challenges:
A Spoon Full of Sugar – Challenge 62
ABC Challenge – Y is for yellow
365 Cards – An “Eye” for an I

Pink Birthday Card

I almost like this card.  I’m hoping my creativity will flow better tomorrow.  I think it is because I am working out of my card stash.  I have a basket that is overflowing with scraps and pieces and embellishments that I have decided would work better on cards than on my scrapbook pages.  Products used: KI Memories paper, Making Memories metal-rimmed tag.  I used watercolor pencils to color in the gift.  Brads, stamped image, ribbon, and metal mesh are unknown.

Challenges:
Friday Sketchers 62 – sketch
Belli Challenge #70 – Metal Tags
Pile It On Challenge #8 – Watercolor
