Purr-fect Halloween (August SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  Whether you love cats, or Halloween, or both - this stamp set is perfect for you.  With different eyes, hats, and sentiments, you can personalize cat for any occasion.         

If you have come here from My Scrapbooking Blog, you are on the right path!  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!  

For the first time, Close To My Heart is featuring a "Color of the Year."  And the first featured color, Sea Glass, is being introduced this month.  If you love the Sea Glass color, there is cardstock, ink, and even Glitter paper for you to choose from.  And Sea Glass is also featured in some of the special paper packs which will be available for the Holidays (beginning in September).  

Instead of creating something specific for Halloween, I decided to just use the cute cat from the Purr-fect Halloween stamp set along with the fun sentiment.  Some watercolor was used to give the kitty a bit of color.  Using a piece of the coordinating Sea Glass Glitter paper, along with Silver Foil Tape and White Shimmer Trim adds just enough sparkle.  Card design is found in Make It From Your Heart Volume 2, sketch Number 25.           

Place a $50 minimum order this month (August 2016) and you are eligible to purchase the Purr-fect Halloween stamp set for only $5. It is also available for $17.95 without a qualifying purchase.  

Now "Hop" on over to Inky Hearts Papercrafting 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.

If you get lost along the way, the complete list of participants is available on Melinda's 'If You Bling It' blog.   

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
