SOTM Blog Hop (Everyday Magic)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring
Everyday Magic, which is the January 2020 SOTM . If you have come here from Cat 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.

Products used are all Close to My Heart: Everyday Magic stamp set (January 2020 SOTM), Chipboard Monogram M, Chipboard Monogram J, Round Sponge, Inks (Lagoon, Thistle, Pixie, Carolina), Celebrate Today Vellum Diecuts (butterfly), Soft Pink Shimmer Trim, Diamond Stickles Glitter Gel, and Cool Mint Stickles Glitter Gel.

I’ve had these monograms sitting around for quite some time and this is completely not what I had in mind for them but I am extremely happy with the result. The sentiments on this stamp set are perfect for my daughter to read every time she goes in and out of her room.
I sponged directly onto the chipboard monograms using a cut piece of the round sponge.
I really like how the Glitter Gel ended up looking on top of the ink colors. It’s like it takes on the color. In the picture below, the swirl is Cool Mint and the dots are Diamond. They seem to react the same.

Now “Hop” on over to Melissa Robinson’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 Everyday Magic is only available until January 31, 2020! Visit my website to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
