August SOTM Blog Hop

 Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring August's SOTM, which is Boroque Borders, a set of five stamps.  If you have come here from Jean McNulty'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, just visit the full list of consultants.

This month 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!

 It's been awhile since I participated in a blog hop but they are always so much fun, I wanted to jump right back in! I've been spending lots of time reorganizing my crafting space so I was eager to actually create instead of clean something!

On this colonial white cardstock sized 4x4'' I simply stamped with two different shades of grey. Grey  Wool and Flannel Grey were the shades I used. I stamped the image in the lighter shade first and then sponged on the darker shade with a sponge dauber. It gives the image a multi-colored look. The sentiment was from a stamp set called "Card Chatter - Sympathy."  I love the simple elegant look of this card. 

I also wanted to share a photo of the following artwork. This card that also uses the Baroque Borders, was created as a Make 'n' Take provided by a teammate Cathryn, at my Silicon Valley Stampers team meeting. We always celebrate a new catalog with  make 'n' takes from the upcoming catalog using the stamps of the month. Fun times! Thanks Cathryn for making such a cute make 'n' take for us! 

Now "Hop" on over to Kathleen'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 for only $5.
