September SOTM Blog Hop - Feel So Blessed

Welcome to our CTMH Stamp of the Month blog hop! You're on the right path if you just came from Michele Rowley's blog. To see the entire list of participants, visit Melinda Everitt's blog here.

I chose to use the feather image and large sentiments for these cards. The first card has feathers stamped on both the lighter and darker shades of Nutmeg cardstock. The difference is subtle, but if you look carefully, you can see the one on the right is from the lighter back side of the paper. The paper rectangles are from the new Falling For You paper pack.



I wanted the second card to use the leaves and feather with the lovely quote:


I framed a strip of the paper with sticky notes, inked it with sponges using Goldrush and Fern inks, then stamped the outline leaf images while the sticky notes are still in place. Then I removed the sticky notes to stamp the feathers so that they would extend outside the inked strip. I added the Sweet Leaf dotted ribbon (from the Whimsy Ribbon Collection)  on the left. I decided to stamp the delicate leaves inside to adorn the sentiment that will be added later.

You can purchase the stamp of the month this month only from your consultant or here on my website.


Thank you for visiting! Now you're ready to go on to see Tracie Cassidy's artwork!
