December SOTM Blog Hop - Owl Love You Forever

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

If you have come here from Becca-Expressions Blog you are on the right track!!  

This month, we will be featuring the EXCLUSIVE December 2021 SOTM stamp set called "Owl Love You Forever".

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 EXCLUSIVE stamp set!! 💗

I really enjoyed playing with this stamp set, and am so excited for the end result!
I DID create a card with this set.... Check it out below. 

When I first looked at this stamp set, I wasn't quite sure HOW I was going to incorporate it onto a card. However...I'm pretty happy with the end result!😉 

To get started on the BACKGROUND...I pulled out my "Wonderland" paper collection. Next, I grabbed my texture paste and a card front Stencil design from pack #3!💗  
Take a look at those 3 lines...THEY were created with these items!! 😲 

I used the LOVELY glacier colored paper, with the tiny white dots. 

Let's take a look at the tag...I used the Buildable Tags Thin Cut set for 2 tags cut in Wisteria & White Daisy. 
Next, take a close look at the Wisteria tag----and then look at the Stamp set again. 😉 
Can you see where the stamped design comes from??  

That is CORRECT!  I used the wing of one of the owl images, and created a border background on the Wisteria tag!😍 

The bottom of the tag has a tiny bit of Wonderland paper & a touch of Mulberry Glitter Paper. 💗

At the bottom of the card, I used the Tags & Tabs Thin Cut, and cut this shape in Mulberry Cardstock. 
The word "hello" comes from a stamp set in our CORE Idea book...and it's called "For All Occasions" and it is a GREAT set to have on hand! 🤩

Let's chat about our Owl friend. 
I wasn't sure I wanted to color him, out came my Heat Tool and Gold embossing powder. I liked how he looked, but he needed just a touch more. 
Any guesses on what I used to color in a few of his feathers? 🤔
Yup ---our NEW Mulberry Shimmer Brush
I really like how it turned out!  

The final touch of this card, was to bring in our *NEW & Improved** Thinner black acrylic heart shapes & the loose gems in Grape!! 🤩

How FUN to fill in an empty space with those lovely GEMS!! 
That's all I have for today.
