August Stamp of the Month

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month 

Blog Hop 

from Close To My Heart

This month we have more than 60 creative consultants from Close To My Heart participating in this blog hop. This month we are featuring What A Hoot stamp set with 17 stamps.  What a fun and whimsical set to work with for cards, layouts, or other creative projects!  There are so many ways to give each owl its own personality with varying googly eyes or by dressing it up.  This stamp set is also great for coloring with our fantastic new markers or for paper piecing.

If you have come here from Terry Ann Diack's blog, you are on the right path.  The blog hop is a big loop, so you can start here and work your way through.  It's easy to do - just click on the link at the end of each post to move on to the next one.  If you get lost along the way,  click here to see the blog hop list so you can hop back into the loop.

So grab your beverage of choice and get ready to pin lots of fantastic ideas.

This month I paired this stamp set with a new paper kit, Pathfinding to create a fun layout to use when the I capture the grandkids' delight when playing in the Fall leaves.  

First, I stamped the owls on the Champagne card stock, then I stamped the owls on Pathfinding B&T papers to paper piece each one.  The wings and hats were popped with dimensional tape.

Here's a close up of two of the owls so you can see more of the details.

Materials used:
Paper:  All found in the Pathfinding Kit  - X7186B 
Inks: Chocolate, Autumn Terracotta
ShinHan Touch Twin Markers:  Turqoise Blue Z2465,  Marigold Z2457, and Mahogany Z2456
Shimmer Trim - Bronze -Z1849
Acorns and leaves were cut from Barn Red, Autumn Terracotta, and Champagne card stock using the Art Philosphy Cricut Cartridge.  

Remember, this What A Hoot  is only available until August 31rst.  Contact your CTMH consultant (or click here) to get your own stamp set for $17.95, or better yet, for only $5 with a $50 purchase.
