CTMH Blog Hop

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

Welcome to the monthly CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop, this time featuring the gorgeous September SOTM, Treasures. This month we have 69 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations. You are in for a lot of eye candy.

If you've come from Barbara's blog, you're on the right track, although it doesn't matter where you start hopping as this is a circular hop where everyone should be linked.

I decided to emboss the largest flower to really make it pop. Gosh, it has been ages since I last used embossing powders and my heat gun. I had forgotten how nice embossing can look. I wanted to keep the card pretty simple to let the focus be on the large focal flower.

Patterned paper: CTMH Twitterpated
Stamps: CTMH September SOM--Treasures
Other: Cuttlebug, ribbon and buttons from my stash, white embossing powder

Now, hop on over to Laurie's blog to see what she has in store for you. If you get lost along the way or find a link that's not working, Jena's blog has a complete listing of all hoppers. Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!
