September 2012 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month blog hop featuring Fall Favorites, a set of 11 stamps.  If you have just arrived from {Georgia's} blog, you are on the right path.  Just starting here?  Simply click on the link at the end of each post to go to the next post in the hop.

When I saw this stamp set, it immediately made me think of an autumn table setting.  I thought the scarecrow would make a perfect place card holder.  The image was stamped on White Daisy cardstock, colored with watercolor pencils, and then cut out with a border using scissors.

I cut rectangles of Creme Brulee cardstock, and hand-wrote the names in Dutch Blue marker, adding a few accent doodles.

To make my scarecrows stand, I cut a strip of cardstock, and scored it in three places to make a triangle to attach to the back.  Vary the angles of the triangle to vary how far back it leans.

Remember, Fall Favorites is only available September 1-30, 2012.  Contact your consultant, or click {here}, to find out how to get your own.

Now hop on over to {Melinda's} blog to find some more favorites.

If you find any broken links along the way, Helen has the complete list of hoppers {here}.
