CTMH January Stamp of the Month and H2H Challenge

The theme of this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge is cards featuring animals or insects.  The CTMH January Stamp of the Month "Find Your Style" features a bird, butterfly, dress form and shoe with a friendship greeting and the words Love, Soar, Friend and Beautiful.  Here is my entry for the Heart 2 Heart challenge this week:

The bird is black embossed onto a piece of gold holographic gift bag paper (it was broken and I had to find another use for the pretty paper!) The ovals were made with the Coluzzle knife and template.  They are mounted onto Wings paper.  Soar was stamped in Black ink onto Twilight CS.

I also had fun playing with the Shoe stamp and a variety of colors:

The above card features Twilight, Hollyhock, Black and white cardstocks.  The greeting is stamped with Hollyhock ink and trimmed with an old Fiskars scissors called Bowtie.  Licorice Opaques Adhesive Gems adorn the shoe and paper.

In the next card, the shoe was stamped all over Sky CS with Pacifica Ink:

Pacifica, Pear and Holiday Red cardstocks were also used. Red sparkles adorn the shoes and horizontal trim.  Thanks for checking out my latest creations.  Feel free to leave comments. :)
