CTMH Everyday Magic SOTM Blog Hop - January 2020

Welcome to the January 2020 SOTM Blog Hop featuring the stamp set Everyday Magic. This month there are over 15 Consultants sharing projects created with Everyday Magic, the January 2020 CTMH Stamp of the Month. Our hop is a complete circle; visiting the next blog (typically via a link near the bottom of their post) will take you back to where you started.

Everyday Magic Stamp Set
I was looking through Make It from Your Heart™ Volume 2 for ideas and was inspired by Pattern 25 except I rotated the card 90° so I also had to edit some of the cut sizes, especially the spot for the sentiment. The French Vanilla is cut at 3" high by 2" wide.

I wanted to use Spruced Up Wood Shapes (X7253F) to embellish my card, but I had run out of them. I decided to cut circles in two smaller sizes and used additional stamps from Everyday Magic with Sangria ink to create my own embellishments. I used an emery board to sand the embossing to make it stand out more.

Before you head to ***Alyson Mayo's Create with Alyson***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Consultant website.

I love to hear what folks think about the cards I create. If you have a little time, please leave a comment letting me know what you think of this idea. I hope you are enjoying the projects created with Everyday Magic — the January Stamp of the Month. Thank you for hopping with us!
