Twinkle S1510: CTMH Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from Jo's Close To My Heart Craftroom then you are in the right place.

If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s Month Stamp of the Month, Twinkle, a set of 15 stamps.

I have had fun creating with the tapestry technique- full instructions on how to recreate this technique can be found on my blog here.

I used pigment inks in Christmas colours- Cranberry, Topiary and Goldrush- then stamped over these with the star pattern from the stamp set in White Daisy pigment ink.

After I had clear embossed the whole panel, I attached it to the card and added the sentiment from the SOTM. I finished it off by adding two white enamel stars on either end of the sentiment.

The whole card shines in the light due to the embossing, and in real life the effect is stunning. Click here to see another way I have used this technique

This Twinkle stamp set is only available during October. It can be yours for just $10 with a qualifying order of $75 or for $33.00 if ordered separately from your CTMH consultant.

If you do not have a consultant please contact me or place an order here.

I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Wendy's blog, Expressions of the Heart.
