November SOTM Blog Hop - Family Time

Welcome to the November Stamp of the Month 
Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Michelle Stewart's blog}   We have 19 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 Family Time (S1911) (Set of  18).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:

I have a special card to show you today.  It has the best of Fall with all of the beautiful and rich colors that comes with this time of the year.  I stamped the leaves from this stamp set in Toffee, both first and second generation.  One of the things that I adore about acrylic stamps is that I can actually move the stamp to a different position or orientation and that allows me to stamp so that it appears that I have multiple different stamps.  I love it.

I stamped the flowers with various colors and stamped the detail lines with a slightly darker color.  The center of the flower has Golden Rod Stickles which adds some texture as well as glitter.  I molded the petals with my fingers to give them some depth - not so flat.

The sentiment was stamped with Expresso Ink.  The White Daisy panel is 1/4" smaller than the card base.  I popped the panel with Thin 3D Foam tape.

Here's my card:
