CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop...Sew Many Layers




Welcome to Close To My Heart's Monthly Consultants Blog Hop. If you just hopped over from Carol's Blog your on the right path. Every month we have over 60 consultants who share their inspirations and ideas for the CTMH Stamp of the Month. This is full of beautiful artwork, so be sure to check out all the blogs during the course of the month.

This months stamp is so versatile and you'll find yourself using it on so many different projects.

A LITTLE EVERYTHING D1408 has a phrase for almost every occasion. Be sure to take advantage of this set while you can as it's only available through the month of March. You can even get it for FREE with a qualifying purchase. Click over to my website to find out more.... SHOP ONLINE NOW.

Now onto my project. I have really started loving sewing on cards and building my cards up with layers and layers of foam tape. On this simple card I used the Veranda paper pack. Overall there are seven layers on this card, so it really does have nice dimension. Each level has been stitched on the sewing machine. When I stamped the THANKS...I used my Juniper ink pad for half of the stamp and the other is Creme Brulee....I love this technique and it sure is simple with our clear stamp sets. One of my favorite new stamp sets is SMILES C1397 and the flower that is on the right corner of the Thanks is from this set. I stamped it in Juniper ink and colored in with a blending pen and ink for a lighter softer fill in. I finished up the card with a flower from our Just Blooms Z1266 folded in half and ink on the edges. It's a simple card, but one that is sure to make a lasting impression.

Now it's time to go get inspired by another great project....so hop on over to CHRIS'S BLOG. Thanks so much for stopping in and looking and be sure to leave a little love with a comment. HAPPY HOPPING!
