August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - What a Hoot!

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! August's featured stamp set is called What a Hoot and has 17 adorable stamp images.


If you've come here from Catherine Nowak's Blog, you're on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here


 This month we have Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using August's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. Hopping around 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!!



I love paper piecing, and this stamp set is perfect for doing this! I used scraps from three different paper packs - the black star B&T paper is from Chalk It Up, the Sorbet B&T paper on the owl's belly and eye mask is from Seaside and the owl's body is from Yuletide Carol - and none of these are Halloween papers!

I also had fun with my bling - I used the Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon, Gold Shimmer Trim and White Enamel Stars. Plus you can see a hint of our new purple color, Thistle!


And what's Halloween without a little treat? This adorable owl treat bag is from the Artiste Cartridge. The paper comes from the Chalk It Up collection, and I added in some Honey and Sunset cardstock. The sparkle comes from the Black and Grey Sparkle Assortment. Also, the sentiments on both the card and the bag got a little color from our new ShinHan Touch markers - Golden Yellow and Light Orange.

 Now "Hop" on over to Heather Jane's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas! 

Remember, the SOTM is only available until August 31st! You can get this fun stamp set for only $5 with a $5o purchase.
