January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring January's SOTM, which is Find Your Style, a set of 9 stamps.  I love, love, love this set!

If you have come here from LeAnne Dudley's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Helen's Blog and start from the beginning! 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!

Here's the wallhanging that I made:

Products I used:
D1452 Find Your Style
X7135B Wings Level 2 Paper Pack
Z2157 Vineyard Berry Stamp Pad
Z2103 Bamboo Stamp Pad
Z891 VersaMark Stamp Pad
Z671 Clear Embossing Powder
1514 Tombow adhesive
Z679 Liquid Glass
Z1131 Creme Brulee Ribbon Collection
Z1333 Mocha Opagues Adhesive Gems
Acrylic Paint
6x6 Canvas

I painted the edges of the canvas.  Stamped the butterfly with Vineyard Berry ink, then VersaMark, embossed with clear embossing powder and cut it out.  Stamped the butterfly on the B&T paper in in Bamboo and then glued cut out butterfly, with Liquid Glass, over it making sure to just glue  the body leaving the wings free and bent up.  Applied Liquid glass to the antenna. Applied Mocha Opagues along the body using a larger one for the head.  Stamped the sentiment and punched holes to put ribbon to hang it. 

Now "Hop" on over to Helen Onulak'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 December SOTM is only available until Dcember 31st! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

Here's a card that I made:

Happy Birthday Jesus

I would like wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas. 
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:11-12
Happy Birthday Jesus!

Inspired Stamps

As I promised here is a card I made using some Inspired Stamps.  Mind you I have not been practicing with my Copic markers so my coloring is not so good but the stamps are beautiful.

I won..I won...again!!

Oh boy I cannot believe I won again.  This time it was on Inspired Stamps Blog.  This is a blog and stamp company of a fellow CTMH consultant who has quit to start her own stamp company .  Her company is all faith based clear stamps.  She has some really awesome stamps.  She had asked for our favorite bible verses, which if chosen she would make into stamps.....Mine was one of the four chosen...woohoo.  Here's my winning entry:

 Jean M said... I have a couple. the first is 2 Corinthians 5:8 "We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord." I love this verse for Sympathy cards

Please check out Antoinette's website Inspired Stamps.

Thank you Antoinette:)

I will post a card I made using some of her amazing stamps later:)
