September SOTM Blog Hop: Blessed Beyond Measure

Welcome to the beginning of fall.  Well at least in many places we think of fall as the beginning of September or when the kids go back to school.  But I love the September weather in the Pacific Northwest and so for me, it is a continuation of summer with some of the fun artwork for fall.  And that leads us right into the stamp of the month.



Blessed Beyond Measure is the featured stamp set and has a wonderful fall feeling to it.  If you have arrived here from Vickie"s Blog thanks for joining us.  From here, you will travel on to Gina's Blog and enjoy the blessings of her artwork.  And here's the card I created. 



Using Swan Lake, a new paper packet from the Holiday Expression catalog, I featured the pumpkin stamp from the set.  I stamped on Saffron Cardstock in Goldrush ink to get that true pumpkin color.  I used the Mahogany Shin Han marker to add detail.  I added the small spray of leaves stamping with fern ink on fern cardstock.  The sentiment is stamped in Cocoa ink and the leaves are colored with the Sap Green Marker. 

I look forward to using this stamp set throughout the fall!  Remember, you can purchase this stamp set during the month of September order.  The retail price is $17.95 or $5 with a qualifying purchase.  Contact your consultant or visit my website to purchase your set today. 

Now remember you will be traveling onto Gina's Blog for more artwork. 

Enjoy the colors of fall!
Michele
