Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!


 Hi everyone!  I know this is a looooong hop, so keep your strength up and refill that mug!  There are about 67 consultants participating in the hop this month!  (The links in this hop will be active starting on August 1st, so bear with us!)

You should have arrived from Peachy's Blog.  If not, WELCOME!!!  This hop is in a circle, so just keep on going!

We are all featuring the ADORABLE new August Stamp of the Month from Close to My Heart--What A Hoot!



For my project, I wanted to show you how this "Halloween" themed My Acrylix set is actually quite versatile.  I created a set of thank you cards that span the seasons...


There are three products that I used most notably on these cards:   the fabulous line of Close to My Heart Washi Tape, the ShinHan Touch Twin Alcohol Markers, and the True Thank You size M stamp

In this adorable little 3 x 3 card, I used the Topiary Striped Washi, Golden Yellow Marker, and the Marigold Marker.


The next contains an unexpected twist--I used the Carmine Marker to color my Gold Sequins for the holly berries!  This works best if you work quickly and only go over the surface ONCE with the marker--otherwise it starts to erase itself where you already colored.  It will NOT rub off when dry!  They look fab paired with this Ruby Chevron Washi...


I ADORE this new Lagoon Heart Washi!  I used the Tender Pink, Light Orange, and Vivid Green markers for this flower.


I was sort of stumped at first, I must admit, when it came time to figure out the summer card.  I finally realized this "owl eye" would make a great dandelion.  Yes, I am totally insane, so I also used the owl's leg to make the stem, hee, hee!  Sometimes you just have to drive your Barbie like a truck, right, Kristine?  ;)  LOVE this Sunset Chevron Washi Tape!


 There are a few other pretty helpful tools I used from Close to My Heart:

Non-Stick Micro-Tip Scissors
2x2 inch My Acrylix Block
1x1 inch My Acrylix Block
NEW Thin Foam Tape
NEW!  Score Board
Bonding Memories Glue Pen

That is all I have for you today, so head on over to Lela's Blog to see what she whipped up today!  :)  Thanks for hopping by!

You can also find the entire line up of on Melinda's Blog!
