CTMH November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for November! We have many talented consultants participating this month - - which means tons of fabulous artwork ideas to inspire you! This month we are showcasing the very cute "Around the Block" stamp set - a set of 26 images! Enjoy!

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!

My project this month is a holiday card. The finished card size is 5" x 7". I created the house using the paper piecing technique. I added 'snow' using Liquid Applique on and around the house to give my scene a 'wintery' feel. If you haven't tried Liquid Applique before, you'll definitely want to add a tube of it to your papercrafting tool box. It is puff paint that you simply apply using a squeeze tip applicator and then heat using a craft heater. How fun & easy is that?!? Great for snow, clouds or icing on a cupcake! You can even color it using the ink from your stamp pad re-inkers!

Materials Used (all Close to My Heart):

  6. Did you know you can add Prisma Glitter to Liquid Applique while it's wet to make it glisten like snow? The glitter will stick to the Liquid Applique and stay put when it dries!

    Love the wintery feel of the card.
