Three Amigos October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos' October CTMH Mini-Blog Hop.  We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you.  On the 3rd day of each month, we will feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project.  There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.
For this month's "Hop," we chose the "Always Grateful" Stamp set (C1559) which you can purchase for $13.95 on my website.  The images and sentiments in this stamp set make it the perfect stamp set for autumn and winter projects.  I decided to try something less seasonal with my card.

I used three strips of Sarita Textiles for the background, rounding the bottom of each strip and fraying the edges.  The burlap ribbon, color-ready seam binding ribbon, and rosewood mini-medley accents "hold" the background in place. 

The sentiment in the stamp set reads, "Today I am thankful."  I inked only part of the sentiment for my card using Saddle ink.

I used the new Vogue Alphabet (E1026) to create the sentiment inside the card and used a square of the Sarita Textiles to mat it.

Now hop over to Lisa's Blog and see what she has created to share with you!


  1. I did not even realize at first that your card was made with Fabric. How Creative! Love the way you cut the fabric too. You cut it so perfectly rounded. Pretty!

  2. I love it and I can only imagine how much more interesting the card is in person. Fabric gives such texture and interest.
    Really well done, Susan!
