I LOVE that we have an EXCLUSIVE stamp set available at a DISCOUNT each & every month!!

What a PERFECT stamp set for all of the upcoming well as a "general" everyday stamp set too!!!  

I created a card today, and I started by using Pattern #26 from the Make It From Your Heart, vol 2 How-To book.

Here's my card.... 

In case you haven't heard....CTMH released TODAY (Sept 1st) a BRAND NEW, beautiful Holiday Expressions Idea Book! That means we have LOTS of beautiful, new goodies to create with! 
Today, I am using the GORGEOUS paper collection called "Boutique".  I love the tones in this paper pack, and look closely - you'll see a BRAND NEW color that is our Color of the Year! We have named it "Sugarplum"! Isn't it beautiful?!?!!

Let's take a closer look at the Boutique papers...and then we'll talk about my card creation. 

Let's take a close up look at this card....

I was INSPIRED to use 2 of the our NEW Fancy Tags Thin Cuts.  My friend Gina, created something similar for a card swap we were in recently & I just loved how the stacking of the tags looked! 

I used Charcoal ink to stamp the sentiment...but I REALLY wanted the word "sweet" to be in a different color.  Hmmm...I didn't have a Sugarplum colored marker, but I DID have Post-It notes! LOL!!!

I tried to explain how I masked the word, in this photo below.  I know this wasn't the best way to mask my words, but it DID work! :) 

Can you see all the fun SHINE on the card?
I used our NEW Sugarplum colored Shimmer Brush to color in part of the words & the coffee cup. This September Stamp set is ADORABLE!!  

I finished up the card with some peacock stitched ribbon (in the CLEARANCE section at the moment ;) ) some NEW Mink twine along with the BEAUTIFUL Sugarplum Glitter Gems.  


I hope you are enjoying this blog hop & are getting LOTS of ideas for when you create with your OWN Stamp of the month stamp set. Happy Crafting to each of you!
