Thriller - CTMH September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring September's SOTM, which is D1442 - Thriller, a set of 9 stamps.

If you have come here from Brae's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Helen's Blog and start from the beginning! Or, you can continue right from here and when you eventually get here again, you know you've visited them all. Just click on the name at the bottom of this post to continue on.

This month we have 68 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. 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 card today is called a Spring Card. The reason for the name is that is lays flat for mailing but springs up when taken out of the envelope.

The paper for this card is from the Hooligan's Level II paper pack - X7129B. I also added some Sunset and Gypsy CS. However, you can use the reverse side of the B&T for those colors.

I stamped two of the images onto the Gypsy CS using Black Ink. I cleaned my stamps then went over the same stamps with the Bonding Memories wide tip glue pen (1512) stamped right over the original image lining up as perfect as possible,  then covered with Black Glitter. Make sure to clean your stamp immediately after stamping.  
I used a sizzix die for the spider and bats. I added glue to them and then black glitter.
I added 3 of the NEW purple sparkles to two of the corners.

I also edged the edges nof the black square with Bonding Memories Glue and added Black Glitter to the edges.  Unfortunately, the photos don't really show all the sparkle from the glitter.
Now "Hop" on over to Sylvia's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! We'd all love if you left us som Lovin comments!
