Thriller (September SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop which features the Thriller stamp set from Close To My Heart.  Images in this fun Halloween set include skulls, hearts, cobwebs, and an adorable dracula.  

Instead of using traditional Halloween colors, this card uses papers from the new Magnifique paper packet.  The multi-hued blue background paper is actually peacock feathers, but using just a small piece gives a nice detail to the card without appearing to be peacock feathers.  The image is stamped using two new ink colors - Lagoon and Sky.  One of my favorite new embellishments are the Shimmer Designer Brads.  These large brads are beautiful and appear to have a coating of very fine glitter.  They really sparkle and shine, and you can buy 27 brads in bronze, gold, and silver (9 of each color) for only $4.95. 

If you have come here from Angela's 'Tutton's Treasures' blog, you are on the right path! With almost 70 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs, you should be able to find lots of great creative ideas to use for your own projects.  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! 

Now "Hop" on over to Misty's 'Creative Minds Are Rarely Tidy' 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 Thriller stamp set is only available until the end of September.  Let me know if you would like to find out how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free.

If you get lost on the Blog Hop or find links that aren't working, there is a complete list of all participating blogs on Helen's 'Hooked on Stamping' blog.
