Purr-fect Halloween | Blog Hop | August Stamp of the Month

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

We will be featuring August's SOTM, which is Purr-fect Halloween. If you have come here from Jen Rubio'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 over 25 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! And as a bonus, you're going to see a ton of NEW product from the new Annual Inspiration catalog that debuted today!

Purr-fect Halloween

Even though we're still in the midst of summer activities, it's never too soon to start planning for Fall. Halloween will be here before you know it! This Halloween inspired stamp set will get you on the right track. And if you've got a crazy cat lady in your life, you can use the set to make some adorable "Crazy Cat" cards & gifts!

August SOTM
I used my Cricut Artistry cartridge to create the black background design. And I used our silver glitter paper behind the image to make the eyes & mouths pop. The paper is our NEW Enchantment Fundamentals patterned paper packet. I love that each page is two-sided with the same pattern in a coordinating color!

I thought my kitty need a little something, so I used liquid glass to make her eyes & hat stand out a bit more. And I added a little bow from our NEW Enchantment Ribbon pack.
