What a Hoot! CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop


I am so incredibly excited you are joining us this month - Since August starts the NEW CTMH Annual Inspirations catalog you will see a whole lot of new product on this hop besides just the fabulous stamp set.
If you are just joining the hop by starting here- no problem.  If all goes well you'll be able to circle through the hop and see some GREAT ideas.  If you are coming from Michelle's blog you are headed in the right direction.
If you get lost along the hop just come back and click here to go to the full list.
We have 67 bloggers sharing artwork this month so make sure you click through for all the ideas.
This is the What a Hoot stamp set:

Isn't it adorable! 

I wanted to share a Halloween idea but I restricted myself to using the new Wanderful paper pack through August- which is more travel themed.  This is what I came up with:

I used a patterned piece from Wanderful along with the new Flaxen cardstock that comes in that paper pack.  I stamped in Black and sponged with Sunset and Gypsy.  Eyes stamped in Gypsy.
I used the new woodgrain embossing folder to make the "tree".  I rolled some cardstock into a sort of branch for my wl to perch on.  I found  a scrap of olive cardstock and cut the leaves with Art Philosophy.  I also cut the sentiment piece with that cartridge.
This card is one of my August card class projects- check back later this week to see the rest.
Now head on over to Lalia's blog to see what she's created!
