Welcome to the November SOTM Blog Hop - Cheers, 2016!

Welcome to the November Stamp of the Month 
Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Sheila Bennett's Blog.}   We have almost 40 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.   If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.      

The November Stamp of the Month is entitled Cheers, 2016! (S1511) (Set of 17).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:

Fall has finally arrived in Memphis and I am ready for the beautiful colors and the cooler temperatures.  Close to My Heart has made a beautiful paper pack that brings all of the colors of Fall to your artwork.  It is called Sangria and I used it for my card.

Here is my card.

I used an old pattern for my card that I found at PageMaps.com in 2013.

I am pretty true to the pattern.  I love this sentiment - "Dream Big".  I find it very inspirational and will be making quite a few pieces of artwork with it.  I used the Close to My Heart Artbooking and Art Philosophy Cricut Collections heavily and had fun making this card.  I will list all of the supplies below.

Did you see that adorable heart tab?  It is from the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge.  Using Design Space for the Cricut Explore, I changed the size ratio for the tab and made it longer and slimmer so that it would fit on my card better.  The white "stitching" is made with a Signo pen and is not real stitching.  I like how it brightens up and "finishes" my card.

In my supply list below I forgot to include my favorite "tool" that I have been using - our thin 3D Foam tape.  It adds a little dimension but allows you to still mail your card without additional postage.

The Cheers, 2016! Stamp of the Month Stamp Set can be purchased for $17.95 or if you purchase $50 in CTMH products, you can add this stamp set to your order for an additional $5.  This stamp set is only available between November 1 – November 30, 2015.
