September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring the September SOTM, which is Treasures, a set of 13 stamps. If you have come here from Kristie's blog, you are on the right path!

This month we have over 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the September SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This hop is simple to follow - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!


I made a 6X6 Thank You card, following the Open Outline pattern from Wishes Card Confidence Program. As usual, I took slight liberties with the sketch. Instead of adhering the vellum to the inside of the back of the card, I adhered it to the inside of the front. The vellum was random stamped in White Daisy ink, which I set using my Craft Heater (caution - when using your craft heater to set the ink on vellum, make sure you don't get the heater too close, and keep it moving so you don't scorch the vellum). The card base is Sweet Leaf cardstock, and the patterned paper is from the Emporium Level 2 Paper Pack. Circles were cut out using Coluzzle Circle Template. The patterned paper was sponged around the edges with Twilight ink, and the Sweet Leaf cardstock was sponged around the inside of the circle opening using Sweet Leaf ink. The sentiment on the inside was stamped using Twilight ink. The White Daisy circle was cut with Nestabilities, sponged with Bamboo ink while still in the die and the image was second generation stamped in Twilight ink. The scalloped circle was also cut with a Nestabilities die. The scalloped circle was mounted using 3-D Mounting Foam. The adhesive pearls in the top left corner are the new-for-Autumn Connections Club award, available exclusively through your Close To My Heart consultant.
