October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month 
Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Wendy Kessler's blog}   We have 23 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 October Stamp of the Month is entitled Thanks and Giving (S1810) (Set of  16).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:

Fall is in the air.  I felt like digging into the Grateful Heart paper pack and using lots of gold embossing powder.  Here's my card.

I stamped the beautiful flower bough from the October Stamp of the Month onto White Daisy Cardstock (X6027) using Versamark ink (Z891) and embossed with our Ranger™ Princess Gold Embossing Powder (Z2066).  The frame is from the Grateful Heart - Scrapbooking stamp set (D1794) and is also embossed with gold embossing powder.  Then I used our watercolor paint set (Z3132) and our small round waterbrush (Z3224) to lightly add color.  The "blessed" sentiment comes from the Grateful Heart - Cardmaking stamp set (C1727) and is stamped with New England Ivy Ink (Z2835).

I couldn't resist so I stamped the heart from the October Stamp of the Month and, yes, it is also embossed with gold embossing powder.  I embellished with a New England Burlap Ribbon (Z4170) bow and 3 Gold Glitter gems (Z3312).

The October Stamp of the Month Stamp Set can be purchased for $18.95 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 October 1 – October 31, 2018.
