CTMH SOTM Blog Hop-- October

Hello and welcome to the CTMH SOTM Blog Hop.  We have over 70 participants this month!  If you've come here from Michelle's Blog then you are on the right path.  Should you get lost along the way, then click HERE for a list of participants.

October's SOTM, Home for the Holidays, features a set of 7 images that are good for both scrap-booking and card-making. Most of the stamped images can be cut using CTMH's Art Philosophy and you know what that means-- less manual cuts:)

For this blog hop, I choose to create 2 holiday cards.

I created the first card using CTMH's new Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge.  I choose to make a card with snowflakes cut out.  I backed the cut out snowflakes with a blue B&T.

For the polar bear, I stamped it using Black Archival Ink and used Art Philosophy for the postage stamp shapes.

For the second card, I used Art Philosophy for the ornament shapes.  I then heat embossed it using CTMH's new silver embossing powder.

The white overlay is from CTMH's Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.

I hope you enjoyed these cards!  If you would like to order this stamp, but don't have a consultant, then please visit my website.  Next up is Jen Patrick.  Please visit Jen's Blog and all the other consultants on the hop.  Thanks:)

Maureen, these are so cute. You know I love embossing, so I was really drawn to that silver embossed one, but I love that polar bear card with the cut out frames. Cute, cute, cute! Did I forget to mention they're CUTE?! :)
