Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Purr-fect Halloween

Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month 
Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Cat Nowak's Blog.}   We have 24 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.      

The August Stamp of the Month is entitled Purr-fect Halloween (S1608) (Set of 17).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:

I am a real cat lover.  I own two ragdoll cats and an orange devil (I mean tabby).  My cats help me craft.  By helping I mean sit on my supplies, steal my embellishments, and get between me and my computer.  So I was excited to see this stamp set.  And with the release of a new catty - the perfect storm!

Here is my card.

See the purple patterned paper?  That is from our new Adventure Fundamentals.  LOVE it!!!  It features our new purple - Pansy.  And how do you like the Tangerine cardstock?  Our new colors rock!

With our new catalog we got lots and lots of ribbon.  The black ribbon with the gold edges is from our Uptown Ribbon Collection.  The black strands that I used in the upper right corner is from our Rustic Home Ribbon Pack.  It starts off as a brown woven ribbon.  I cut it apart into strands and colored it black with my black Shin Han marker.

I colored in my images with my Shin Han markers and added a little shimmer to the hat and the bat bow tie with our new Shimmer brush.

This was a fun card to make.

See the shimmer to the hat and the bat bow tie?

The Purr-fect Halloween Stamp of the Month Stamp Set can be purchased for $17.95 or if you purchase $50 in CTMH products, you can add this stamp set to your order for an additional $5.  This stamp set is only available between August 1 – August 31, 2016.
