September SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring September's SOTM, which is called Poster Tidings, a bold and trendy set of 2 oversized stamps.  If you have come here from MICHELLE'S BLOG, you are on the right path!

This month we have 50+ Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this 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! Here we go!

This month I was inspired by the Mojo Monday Round or Square challenge. Apparently the Square half, since I made not one, but two versions of the square card sketch.

For the Family Gratitude card I cut a pumpkin from two layers of Sunset Cardstock using the new Artbooking cartridge. The bottom layer got a wash of color with some markers, and the top layer got a subtle second generation hexagon pattern from the Reel Life stamp set. I used the same stamp to add texture to my sentiment frame in Honey ink. I love the way the Slate polka dot washi pops against the Babycakes paper!
For the second version I used the new Frosted papers. I inked my SOTM image with a side to side swiping motion to add the extra texture to my stamped image. I cut out the snowflakes form the Frosted B & T, and I detailed everything with my favorite Stardust clear glitter gel pen. I used the new Lagoon hounds tooth washi layered over a bit of Silver Shimmer tape in the background. 

I'm linking this to the ABC No Flowers Challenge as well...and I can't tell you how hard it was for me to not tuck a little yellow pumpkin blossom in on that Huntington card!

Now "Hop" on over to KIM'S BLOG to see her fabulous work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants Blogs to soak in the great crafting and SOTM ideas! Remember, this SOTM will be gone at the end of September!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set for just $5!
