Fall Favorites - September Stamp of the Month


Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring "Fall Favorites", a set of 11 stamps.  If you have come here from LeAnne Dudley's Blog you are on the right path!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.   If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE 

We have over 60 consultants participating in the hop. Following the hop is easy, just click on the link at the end of the post and it will hop you right over to the next blog!

I was couldn't wait to create something with this set!  It gave me a chance to play with our new alcohol markers!  I had so much fun, I created 3 cards! I used our new Flirty paper pack for all three cards and Burlap Ribbon.   I'm addicted to the Burlap Ribbon!  I want to put it on everything right now.  Since the Basic color group of the Alcohol Markers aren't available to order yet, I used our regular blending pen and Cocoa ink for the areas that I wanted to color brown.    Hopefully the Basic colors will be available this month!

RECIPE - 5 x 7 Card:
Make it From Your Heart - Adapted from Sketch #25
Base Colonial White Cardstock
Flirty Paper Packet (X7160B)
Alcohol Markers:  Ruby, Creme Brulee', Outdoor Denim, Indian Corn Blue, Sweet Leaf
Ink Pads: New England Ivy, Cocoa, Bamboo
Blending Pen (3174)
Burlap Ribbon (Z1760)
Pin Clip (Z1612)
Natual Hemp (Z280)
Corner Rounder (Z578)
Sanding Kit (Z1294)

Details: I random stamped the pumpkins in Bamboo ink onto the Bamboo piece of cardstock.  This is layered under the scarecrow.  

I used the corner rounder to scallop the New England Ivy piece of cardstock that is placed to the left of the scarecrow.

I stamped "fall" twice in New England Ivy ink on Bamboo cardstock. I punched out the 'a' and layered it with foam tape to 'pop' it up on top of the other "fall".




RECIPE 4x4 Square Card:
Card - Artiste Cartridge (Z1790) - "2"<Card>
Flirty Paper Packet  (X7160B)
Burlap Ribbon  (Z1760)
Haunted Assortment (Rhinestone) (Z1741)
Alcohol Markers: Sweet Leaf, Autumn Terracotta
Ink Pad - Cocoa
Blending Pen - (3174)
Sponge
Art Philosophy Cartridge (Z1686) - <Tag4>

Details:  I cut a piece of Burlap ribbon in half horizontally down the middle. Then cut off the edged border of the ribbon.  Next I pulled a few of the strands away from the sides so that the edges would fray a little.



RECIPE - 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 Card
Flirty Paper Packet - (X7160B)
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (Z1686)
Alcohol Markers: Ruby, Creme Brulee', Sweet Leaf, Autumn Terracotta
Ink Pads: New England Ivy, Cocoa
Blending Pen - (3174)
Brad Assortment - Metal Asst (Z1366)
Natural Hemp - (Z280)
Burlap Ribbon - (Z1760)
Artiste Cricut Cartridge - <Shape 4>

Details:  For this card, I did not let the other half of the burlap ribbon I used previously go to waste!  I just attached it to the bottom of my card!   I scattered copper bitty brads across the bottom pumpkin/acorn border.  Next, I stamped extra border and cut out the acorn and leaves to add to my sentiment.


Remember! This stamp is available ONLY during the month of September!  You can purchase it for just $5 when you purchase $50 in Close To My Heart products!
