August SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month's set is Something Splendid.  A set of 13 stamps which includes three sayings.

If you have come here from Jennifer Benner's Blog you got a taste of the talent represented in this hop! We have over sixty Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations, using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products. It is simple to hop along - just click on the link at the end of the post to move to the next one!

Here is what I made this month:

I used the flower stamp to create a Christmas Wreath.  I guess I am just in the holiday mood.  The paper is Splendor B&T and cranberry and topiary cardstock with colonial white card stock.  The card is 5 x 7.  A combination of stamped cranberry red (small flower center) and cranberry brads decorate the wreath on its lower window panes.  The B&T paper and top window pane have been sewn with a cranberry thread.

The next card I made is a Christmas tree made from the varying sizes of leaves.

The colors are the same and I added a gold foil star and pearls to decorate the tree.  A wrap closure was made with the large flower and the center for the small flower shape was used to embellish the wreath.  Finally, a ribbon was tied and glued onto the wreath shape.

Here is a detail shot:

Remember, the August SOTM is only available until August 31st! Contact your CTMH Consultant to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!
