Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you have found yourself here from Nicole Grigg's Blog, then you are in the right place.  This month we have over 60 Close to My Heart Consultants for the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  

The September Stamp of the Month is entitled Limited Edition (Set of 21).  Look at all of the cool images and the tag is absolutely adorable!  Here is a picture of the September Stamp of the Month:

Looky, looky what I made with the September Stamp of the Month, Limited Edition!.  I call this a Tag Card (for obvious reasons!  LOL!)


I needed a birthday card for my sweet grandson, Austin, and I love to give him a one-of-a-kind card.  Can you believe that my jock grandson actually keeps my cards?  That makes him very card worthy so Grandma goes out of her way to make him a special card.

I used our new paper pack called Typeset (X7139B).  I also employed my new Close to My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (Z1686) to make the ever so cute star, ticket and tag.  May I tell you how easy it is to make a card like this when I do not have to cut out the stamped images!  I love how many of our stamps have images that can be stamped out with this Cricut Cartridge.  Contact me if you want more information about this great new product!

Anyway, back to my card.  I took out my sewing machine and sewed around the edge of the card for a little added texture.  I used the zip strip from the top of the paper to add detail to the top of my tag pocket.  The arrow is from our Milepost Shapes (Z1464) and is sponged with Vineyard Berry ink and then I covered it with our new Bronze Glitz Glitter Gel (Z1483).

The star is cut from Creme Brulee Cardstock and I used my stipple brush from my Texture Tools set (Z1298) to distress it with Cocoa Ink.  The pull on the top of the tag is actually a photo clip from the Pewter Mini-Medley set (Z1487) covered with a canvas Typeset Complements piece.  It was a little too big but I adhered it to the photo clip and then cut it down to side and then distressed it with Cocoa Ink.  The ticket stamped image comes from the stamp set, Blue Ribbon (C1464).  Also, check out the pewter ribbon slide with the Twill Ribbon tied onto it.  Hoping this is not too girly!

Check out the cute little tag that I made with this stamp set that is the centerpiece of my card.

I even used the Typeset patterned paper to finish of the inside and used the A Typeface (A1117) stamp set to stamp Happy Birthday.

The September Stamp of the Month stamp set can be purchased or you can even get it for only $5 Between September 1 - September 30, 2011.  And don't forget our National Stamping Month Special entitled Pair-a-Phrase!  Until the end of September, while supplies last, you can get this FREE 2 D-size Stamp Set with your $75 order.  What a deal!
