September Stamp of The Month Blog Hop















Welcome to September's Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We are featuring Septembers Treasures a set of 13 stamps. If you have come here from Laura's Blog,you are on the right path!***This month we have almost 70 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!
So here's my beautiful card.......I love, love, love this month's stamp. It's just so beautiful with the autumn wildflowers and lovely sentiments...I've created this stunning card using a pattern from the Wishes Book with a circle peek a boo window. How cute is that!! I used the Caprice paperpack on this 6x6 card and the ink colors are chocolate and crystal blue. Inking the edges really helps to add that final touch to your artwork, so don't forget the little details. The large seedling stamp was first stamped with the chocolate ink and then restamped with versa mark...this is just one of the great features of our MyAcrylix stamp sets...you can actually see through them to line up perfectly for a restamp. After I stamped with Versa Mark I sprinkled clear embossing powder over and set the powder for that finished sheen I just adore. Then I cut the flower out and gluded it in the interior of the card where it would peek through to the front. I then stamped the interior with the chocolate and crystal blue images, plus added a sweet sentiment. I painted liquid glass on the ribbon that runs along the front of the card to add an additional design element along with the crystal blue bitty brads. I really hope you love this card as much as I do, it really just seems to usher in the Autumn Season.

Jamia's blog doesn't have another name to hop to. Also her card isn't the SOTM.
