Have a Wicked Halloween!

The new CTMH Catalogues arrived this week. My consultant, is also my best-friend. She receives all the Stamps of the Months with her catalogue order and I was able to play last night with the August Stamp of the Month - Wicked.

I love this stamp set.

I used BoBunny's Vicki Cut-Outs two sided patterned paper with Bobunny Strawberry Double Dot and Bazill Bitter Chocolate, Classic Orange & Intense Kiwi.

The border strip was punched out with one of EK Success' Large Border Punches. I embellished the card by stitching around the card with my sewing machine and by adding Basic Grey's Bling It Square Rhinestones. I also rounded the corners of the patterned paper with EK Success' Medium Corner Rounder.

For the inside of the card, the middle sentiment was cut out with Spellbinder's Labels 14 Nestability and I used Stampin' Up's Photo Corner punch in the corners.

All the little words around the border strip are from CTMH's "Authentic" and "Fill in the Blank" stamp sets. The spiders, the witch, inside sentiments and the hat are all from CTMH's August Stamp of the Month - Wicked stamp set.

Close to My Heart's new catalogue not only has some great Stamps of the Month, but the stamp set prices have come down, the Stamp of the Month program has changed and they have partnered up with Cricut.

That's right! There is a Cricut Cartridge for sale in the CTMH catalogue that comes with chipboard die-cuts and 3 D-Size stamp sets for $109.95.

Throughout the catalogue you will see red lines around some of the stamps. That means that shape is on the Cricut Cartridge. When you purchase that stamp set, it will tell you what size to cut that shape out to fit that stamped image on the Cricut cut out. The Cartridge also has a font on it.

If you don't know how to get your hands on a Close to My Heart catalogue, I always keep extras on hand here for people to purchase for $5.00. I also have extra Stampin' Up catalogues here as well for $12.00.

Stampin' Up's new ribbon collections are gorgeous. To see one of their new ruffled ribbons on a layout, you can go to my store's blog and check out the September Calendar Page.

Have a Wicked Day!

  2. She is fabulous and even better in person! My favorite part is the spiders hanging at the edge and the tiny words along the boarder. Cheers,
