Oct SOTM Blog Hop - With All My Love


Welcome to our monthly Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop!!!

If you have come here from the talented Gina's Blog, you are on the right track!!  

This month, we will be featuring the EXCLUSIVE October 2020 SOTM stamp set called "With All My Love".

This blog hop is a great big circle, so you can START HERE & work your way around to the many consultants on this “hop”! If you get lost along the way, you’ll find a complete list of PARTICIPATING CONSULTANTS by clicking HERE

This month we have a group of FABULOUS Close To My Heart Consultants that will be sharing items they have created using this month’s stamp set.  So, sit back & enjoy your tour as you click on the link at the end of each post to see what EVERY consultant has created. 😊

Here is a look at this month's BEAUTIFUL, EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5.... (or FREE) with EVERY $50 CTMH purchase in October 2020. 

Look at this BEAUTIFUL stamp set this month! 😍 I ADORE stamp sets with sentiments for the front of the card...and this one is perfect! 

You might have realized by now, that I also enjoy SHAKER cards!! I pulled out my Heart Shaker set again, and used the Heart Image from this stamp set to white emboss some black cardstock! 
Our Shaker window Thin Cuts (metal dies) at CTMH, make it SO EASY to do this!! 
Take a look at this Stitched Heart Shaker Window set. 

Notice the solid heart...that is the Thin Cut I used to cut the BACK of my shaker heart. 
The Stitched Heart Thin Cut was used to cut the Black Glitter Paper topper frame. 

Those "confetti" hearts are FUN to cut out too! I chose not to use them this time, but you can see the lovely shapes & frames that they make! 

The card looked "blank" before I added the white stitched frame as part of the background. 
Our set of Rectangle Stitched Frame Thin cuts --- cut 6 different shapes!!  
Each of these frames cuts the outer skinny stitched frame AND a large solid rectangle with the stitching along the outside edge!!! 
Sometimes I forget how much a bit of white, adds to the card design!  I was excited how that simple thought, brought the final details to this card.  💓

Metallic Markers are a NEW item we carry at CTMH --and I have been WANTING to give them a try!!

After heat embossing the heart shaker --I pulled out those metallic markers to see what they would do.  I was really happy with the result ---- so much so----that I used Black Embossing powder to heat emboss the flower on the outside. 
The purple was colored with the Purple Blend Tri-Blend alcohol marker but I chose to use the Jade Green metallic marker to color in the leaves! So fun!! 


I hope you are enjoying this blog hop & are getting a lot of creative inspiration for when you create with your OWN Stamp of the month stamp set.
