Wicked (August SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop which features the Wicked stamp set from Close To My Heart.  This stamp set has a fabulous witch, broomstick, scary cat, and witch's hat, along with some great sentiments with shapes that coordinate extremely well with cut images on the new Cricut-Art Philosophy cartridge

If you have come here from JIll's 'Scrap Wench' blog, you are on the right path! With over 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other  CTMH products on their blogs, you should be able to find lots of great creative ideas to use for your own projects.  With the release of CTMH's new Autumn/Winter Idea Book on August 1, there will be a lot of fabulous brand-new products being used.  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!

A sassy witch on this card reminds you to "put your best foot forward."  On this 6"x6" Kraft scallop edge card, the right side is actually a flap that is being held closed with the witch image.  To decorate the card, the scallop background, scallop edge patterned paper, as well as the different frames for the witch and the sentiment were all cut using the Cricut-Art Philosophy cartridge.  The cartridge is perfect for creating just about any shape you need for card making or scrapbooking.  The inside of the card is completed with the black cat from the set stamped in the lower right corner.  You can get 10 of the card bases with matching envelopes for only $6.95.
Now "Hop" on over to Mary's 'mestamp2' blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas!  Remember, the Wicked stamp set is only available during the month of August.  The regular price is reduced to $17.95, or you can purchase it for only $5 with a minimum order of $50 in other CTMH products.

In addition, Close To My Heart is celebrating their newly updated Stamp-of-the-Month program by offering an "Extra! Extra!" bonus stamp set with the purchase of the August SOTM at the discounted $5 price.  A Typeface is a great little alphabet set that is only available this month and is FREE!  It has a retail value of $6.95.
