August's Sharing From The Heart BlogHop!

Welcome to August's Sharing From The Heart BlogHop!  
The best part about this BlogHop is that some of us are featuring August's stamp of the month 'Wicked', some of us will be featuring new product and some of us will be featuring School themed projects!  A select few have also mentioned that they'd be featuring all three! 
This month's featured stamp of the month is called 'Wicked' which is a fantastic *new* stamp from Close To My Heart that is very wicked indeed!
Hopefully you'll find some inspiration as you Hop along!

If you've arrived from Lela's Blog then you are on the right track!

 Here are the images included in this month's 'Wicked' stamp set : 

Now here's some super awesome Artwork from CTMH:

This is what I've created with August's Stamp of the Month set 'Wicked':

I've used ALL cardstock for this card; Sunset, Colonial White and Black. My images were stamped in black and the broom stick was stamped in Desert Sand and Cocoa!

This card was super fun to create! I have stamped the witch on Desert Sand cardstock, matted it in Sunset and inked those edges with Cocoa...the spider web was embossed on our black cardstock, which kinda split the paper a bit...this worked perfectly with the web/creepy look I was going for anyways, so I inked the white core of our cardstock that was exposed with the Desert Sand ink pad! 

*Now, you'll notice that with both of these cards the sentiment is on a specialty shaped pieces of cardstock which I cut from the NEW Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge! I know that I'll be heading to this frequently as I LOVE using it after half a week!

These two cards were cut using the NEW Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge too...In the above card, the stamped cupcake and stars are from one of the stamp sets included when you purchase our new Cricut cartridge. 
I've used Fanfare patterned paper and added some bling on the cupcakes to resemble sprinkles with our NEW Glitz Glitter Gel in red! 

This card below is cut from the NEW Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge as well because I was having so much fun...I've used the 'A Little Thanks' stamp set, which isn't new, but is very versatile, so I love to use it! I had some scraps of our now retired Sweetheart paper so I added it to this Black & White Daisy cardstock.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit here, if you'd like to become a follower or leave me a comment, I'd love it!

Now it's time to head on over to Kristin's Blog for some more great ideas and inspiration using CTMH products!
