If you have come here from Wendy's Blog you are on the right path! My blog marks the end of the "hop" but if this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Kathleen's Blog and start from the beginning! This month we have 70 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs.
This month I was inspired to make a couple of items with this stamp set (with more to come). The first is this Circle Card - made with our NEW Circle Cards - already cut in circles with square envelopes to fit them!
Using our beautiful Mistletoe paper and a pattern from our Wishes book, I "blinged up" the Christmas tree image from this stamp set using our Opaque Pearl Adhesive Gems and Red Sparkles. I was able to achieve a "shading" effect when coloring the tree as I outlined it first using the New England Ivy Marker and then colored in the image using the Waterbrush pen and the New England Ivy Ink Pad. Despite not having much artistic ability, the shading effect is doable with these supplies! I finished off the card with some Cocoa Grosgrain Ribbon.
Next, I created this candle using the snowman image. (Check back on Sunday for directions on how to stamp on candles. I am teaching this technique at my team meeting on Saturday and will share information then.) Wouldn't these make great gifts?
