August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring the August Stamp of the Month called What A Hoot.  This set includes 17 stamps.  If you have come here from Jilena's blog then 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.  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. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog:

This month you will be inspired by nearly 70 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs! 

This card is ready to drop in the mail to your favorite person!  It is made on white cardstock stamped with Geometric Backgrounds (D1559) in Honey (Z2162), Canary (Z2643) and Bamboo (Z2103).  My owl was stamped and embossed with Black embossing powder, then colored with our brand new Touch Twin markers in Carmine (Z2448) and Marigold (Z2457).  The spots were added using the Lepen Journaling Pen (Z1979). He gets a good look at you with his studded eyes.  The sentiment is stamped on a conversation bubble (Z1793) and pennants were added for a final touch.

Now "Hop" on over to Casandra'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!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
