August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring August's SOTM,  "What A Hoot". If you have come here from Angela Garcia'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 HERE.

This month we have 67 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I decided to go in a different direction - rather than making a Halloween-themed project, I used this set for a birthday card.  And of course, I chose our new paper collection, Confetti Wishes.  This happy happy paper features bright colors, including two of our new colors: Thistle and Canary.  And the stamp set is perfect for paper piecing - I stamped the owl image on the diagonal stripe paper, then on the confetti design, cut each piece out and glued.  Then I stamped the party hat and paper-pieced the stripes.  I created a banner by trimming the hat image.  Those pieces were colored using our blending pen.  I created background paper by random stamping 'what a hoot' tone-on-tone in Crystal Blue.  Here is a closer look:

Supplies Used:  Confetti Wishes papers
Ink and Cardstock:  black, crystal blue, pacifica, thistle
Black enamel stars

Purchase this fun set for just $5 with any $50 purchase during the month of August!  Shop Here

Now "Hop" on over to Jaime Llewellyn'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 August SOTM is only available until August 31st!

  3. Very fun card! I love the "What a Hoot" as a random stamped background...maybe scraplifting that idea.

  4. I like the stamped background sentiment with the Confetti paper pieced owl, super cute card

  5. So cute! I especially love the stamped background and the hat "garland."

  6. The more I see of this paper pack, the better I like it! I love your random stamping as a background!
