I'm a Close to My Heart consultant (direct sales company like SU), but I don't usually do posts like these.  I feel awkward doing the direct sales things and am just a hobby consultant.   Close to My Heart offers high quality photopolymer (clear) stamps, great inks, and lots of other things for scrapbooking and card making.  I really like their inks and use them all the time along with many other products.  Anyway, I thought I would do a post this month with the special offers because there are some really great promotions going on right now! (You can see the catalog online here.)

I'm going to do online catalog party so if you're interested in joining us and ordering some things, drop me an email and I'll send you an invite.  You will be able to order online and your order will ship directly to you!                                       

Every month, CTMH offers a Stamp of the Month.  You can purchase that SOTM for $17.95 or for $5 if you purchase $50 or more in other products.  You can read the flyer here ( Download S1108) and see the full stamp set.  August's SOTM is called Wicked and is a great Halloween set.  I just love the fonts and sentiments in the set.

I created this little card and Halloween treat tin using stamps from the Wicked stamp set.  I started by stamping a piece of colonial white cardstock with sorbet ink and the little honeycomb stamp.  Then, I stamped the witch and sentiment on white cardstock and the sentiment on my tin on colonial white cardstock using archival black ink (this ink does stain clear stamps, but it stamps beautifully).  I die cut the sentiment on the card with a petite oval nestability die and used a labels 4 nestability die for the sentiment on the tin.  I added some stitching and black mats along with some black buttons, crocheted lace, gemstones, and black grosgrain ribbon.  My favorite stamp in the entire set is that sentiment on the tin.  I love the style of the fonts!

You can see the online version of the catalog here if you want to do some browsing.  Drop me an email (under profile photo if you can't click the link), if you like to join me in the online catalog party and I'll send you an invite so you can order online.  Your order will be shipped directly to you!

Have a wonderful day!

I got this, but haven't played with it yet. Great samples (as always). I just wanted to say that the Cricut Art Philosophy Pack from CMTH is AWESOME! If you have a Cricut, the shapes are so great and versatile, and the stamps that come with it are great. Perfect for card making. If you got just that, you'd qualify for all these extra goodies! Just something to think about. :-)

Niki, I didn't realize you are a fellow CTMH Consultant! You learn something new every day, I say. Love your work! And your set is adorable. :)
