September Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring September's SOTM, which is, Thriller, a set of 9 stamps.

If you have come here from Jenna's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go to Helen's Blog and start from the beginning.

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!

This is a 6x6 card - the mat is a 3 x 2.5 piece of Gypsy B&T from the NEW CTMH Hooligans paper pack. I then cut a piece of transparency paper at 2.5 x 2 and used the black STAZ-ON ink to stamp the skull stamp. On the back side of the transparency, I used my CTMH paint brush set, (I chose the sponge brush) and brushed a light coat of our white ceramacoat paint. After drying, I punched holes for my ribbon and tied on the transparency.

Other products used included white organdy ribbon (3/8"), Stars Dimensional Elements and the new licorice opaque beads.

Now "Hop" on over to Katherine'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 SOTM is only available until the end of September! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!


  1. Cute, I like your idea of embossing on the transparency and then painting on the back. It's a bit difficult to see the 'shine' in the photo, but I'm sure it's really pretty 'in real life.'

  2. That is a great technique! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Interesting technique - going to have to give it a try! Love the composition of the card - great job!

  4. I love your technique... definitely a keeper! :-)

  5. Great card! Love the technique - will have to try that!
