SeptemberSOTM Blog Hop - Blessed Beyond Measure

Welcome to our blog hop featuring the Close To My Heart September Stamp of the Month, Blessed Beyond Measure. If you just got here from Maureen OSullivan's blog you're in the right place. You can find a list of all the stampers at Melinda Everitt's blog.

I love fall colors and images from nature! I used New England Ivy and Saffron papers from the new CTMH Enchantment Fundamentals, the new CTMH papers from Rustic Home (glossy woodgrain and subtle pattern for sentiment) and Swan Lake (Poppy autumn pattern) for my card.  Leaves were cut using Cricut Artbooking, then stamped with Fern ink. The open patterns were colored with ShinHan alcohol ink markers. You can get a closer look at all the materials I used by checking out the links in my card recipe at the bottom of this post.

This month's stamp set is perfect for fall colors, but has sentiments that can be used all year! You can get this acrylic stamp for $17.95 or for only $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase.

Thank you for visiting! Now you're ready to go on to Michele Rowley's creation!
