August SOTM Blog Hop - Framed



Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring August's SOTM, which is Framed, a set of 12 stamps which also coordinates with the new Artistry Cricut Cartridge.  If you have come here from Melissa's Blog, you are 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 on Melinda’s Blog.




This month we have 47 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 my project I decided to create a card using the new products from the Zoe collection.  I love the patterns in the Zoe paper package and couldn't decide which one to use, so I used all 6 patterns and created this Sunburst card. I matted the design on white cardstock then adhered to a piece of Sorbet cardstock before adhering it to the card. The stamping is down in to steps, First the frame which is stamped in Sorbet, and then the sentiment, which is stamped in Slate.  The frame has a coordinating cut on the new Artistry Cricut Cartridge, however, I had to fussy cut the frame out because my cartridge hasn't arrived yet. The shimmer trim is Coral, a new colour available along with the Zoe Collection.

To create this Sunburst card, I cut 1.5" wide strips by 5" long. Then I cut them diagonally and alternated the patterns. After adhered, I just trimmed off the overhang of paper.


Now "Hop" on over to Melinda'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! Remember, the August SOTM is only available until August 31st!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
