Welcome to our monthly Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop!!!

If you have come here from Miss Carrie's Creations, you are on the right track!!

Here is this months EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5 with your $50 CTMH purchase in September!!

Look at this BEAUTIFUL collection...and I ADORE the fonts in this stamp many useful, everyday sayings!

As I was thinking about "what" to create, using this stamp set I like to set goals for myself.  So my creating goals were to...
1. Use both of the FEATURED paper packs for the month of September.
2. Stamp a background pattern, somewhere on the card. 

Here is the card I created for this month's hop.  

The original design for this card, came from our last year's Annual Inspiration Idea book...the "thanks" card is found on page 19.  I love to use past catalogs for inspiration whenever I can! :) 

Since this month, September 2017, we have TWO featured paper collections at CTMH....I used TWO paper packs! :)  

Check out these 2 NEW collections that were just RELEASED TODAY!! 

Cats & Bats
Falling For You

(click on the photos above, to make them larger) 
These papers will be current until Dec 31, 2017 OR While Supplies Last...whichever one comes first ;). 

Let's talk a few more details about this card....
I wanted to do some type of background stamping.  I found this dotted designer paper in the Falling For You collection, & thought I could add some more design to this paper. It's amazing how much it adds, by stamping a few of the stems of leaves! 
 Ta-da...a "new" B&T paper!
I also wanted to use a few NEW products, that were just released today!!  

Can you find these new products???  

The Bronze sequins & the White & Bronze twine :)  So pretty!

AND...of course, a little bit of shimmer goes a LONG way ;)...out came the gold shimmer brush to give my feather a bit of sparkle!!

Cardstock colors used: Almond & Espresso
Inks used: Espresso & Fern
