January SOTM Blog Hop!

Happy New Year! And welcome to the January 2010 edition of our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

We will be featuring January's SOTM, which is True Friends, a set of 11 stamps. If you've come from Laurie's Blog, you're on the right path. We have over 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

For this month's hop, I chose to do a simple card showcasing the new Topstitch papers!   I stamped one of the label stamps in Vineyard Berry ink on Vanilla Cream Cardstock and cut it out.  The card pattern is from Wishes - one of the workshop cards.  The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate ink and again, just slightly off for a shadow effect, in Heavenly Blue ink.  I added just a touch of Chocolate ribbon.  The label is popped off the card with 3D dots for dimension.






I also thought this set would make and AWESOME border/banner/wrap.  My box didn't turn out as well as I had envisioned, but that's what I get for doing everything last minute.  For the wrap, I cut a piece of Vanilla Cream Cardstock at 3x12.  Then I stamped the label stamp 4 times making sure to line up the edges of the labels to create a continuous border.  Then I cut out the border strip - leaving just a tab at the end so that I would have something to glue to the inside of the wrap.  Carefully score between the stamped images for a box, or just wrap it around for a candle or other round object. 




Now "Hop" on over to Kimberly's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! The complete list of participants is here. Remember, the January SOTM is only available until January 31st!

Until next time...
