Find Your Style (January SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop which features the Find Your Style stamp set from Close To My Heart.  This stamp set has gorgeous images of a dress form, high heel shoe, a bird, and a butterfly, along with some elegant sentiments. And the best part is that you can earn this stamp set for FREE by ordering as little as $50 in brand-new product introduced in the Inspirations brochure. 

If you have come here from 'Jen's Jewel Box' blog, you are on the right path! With over 50 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!

As soon as I saw this stamp set, I knew I was going to create something using the dress form.  It looks great embossed using Mirror Platinum powder, even though the sheen of the embossing is not apparent in the scanned image.  The fabulous papers are from the new Wings My Reflections kit.  Using the great distressed papers, this card only took about 20 minutes to create.  It really surprised me how quickly it came together.  
Now "Hop" on over to Toni's 'Wholly Crafts!' 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 Find Your Style stamp set is only available until the end of January.  You can earn this stamp set for FREE by ordering as little as $50 in brand-new product introduced in the Inspirations brochure.

The Inspirations brochure is a special for January's "National Papercrafting Month."  In the brochure, there are five stamp sets, a scrapbook kit, and coordinating embellishments that will be introduced in the new Spring/Summer Idea Book on February 1.  The brochure is a "sneak peek" at these new items.  And if you order the Wings workshop-on-the-go, you are eligible to purchase each of the five featured stamp sets at more than a 20% discount each, as well as earning the SOTM at a discount.

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.

Santa - I Believe

On the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog, the last challenge of the year is to share a favorite Holiday card using CTMH products.  This is a quick and easy card to create.     

A very simple, one-layer card using Santa from the I Believe stamp set.  The 'frame' is made using a stamp from the Ritzy Ribbons (now retired) stamp set.  The card is simply a piece of White Daisy cardstock, no other added pieces of cardstock.  The blue inks used are Sky and Pacifica, and matching Sparkles were added to the snowflakes on Santa's bag.

All stamps, inks, and cardstock used are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
