September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

It's September! Time for the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop...

This month's stamp of the month is called Family is Forever.
Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring September's SOTM, which is Family is Forever, a set of 7adorable stamps! 

 If you have come here from you Carol's blog are on the right path!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around to see some gorgeous artwork and get inspired.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's on Melinda's blog.
This month we have approximately 80 extremely talented 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 of each blog to move to the next one.  Are you ready, here we go!
 Let's have a look at my creations...
The first card I created is the large tree, stamped in chocolate ink, and then paper pieced with Olive ink for the leaves.  Yes that's right, I hand cut out all 100+ of those little green leaves!  Wow, you say!  But doesn't it just make the tree come alive?  Additionally, I cut the center heart out from our pink glitter paper, and then handle doodled the bark markings on the tree.
Materials used: Pathfinding paper packet, pink glitter paper, and our new markers.  Love the look of this card and it can be used for anniversaries, weddings, etc.
The second card I created is with fall colors from the Pathfinding paper packet, using the triple stamp technique.  I love the amazing look this technique creates with these cards.

This fabulous stamp set is only available during the month of September.  You don't want to miss out on it.  Just place a $50 order on my website and it an be yours for just $5.
Speaking of amazing creations, let's "hop" on over to Kathy's blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all the amazingly talented Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas to start you off with this fabulous new Annual Inspirations idea book!
