September 2014 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

September is just a few hours away, that means fall is right around the corner! I am looking forward to cooler days, sweatshirts, hot cocoa, and watching my son play football as a Freshman at Skyview!

This month we have more than 80 consultants showing you some fabulous ways to use this fun stamp set! I’ve seen some GREAT ideas already, and I can’t wait to get through the hop myself! Today you should have arrived from Alyson’s blog. When you are done, you will visit Maria’s blog. If you happen to get lost along the way, Melinda has the full list on her blog, and you can find that here.

Let’s take a look at some stuff now, what do you say?

I had seen someone use a different stamp set behind their focal image, and it was similar in style, and I thought that was a super cute idea! When I pulled out my Pathfinding paper and Pathfinding complements, I saw this GREAT circle sentiment, and thought that it would be perfect! I decided to go with a mini album!

I stamped the top of the tree in versamark on my chocolate cardstock, and then embossed it with some clear detail embossing powder. Then I did the other side. (truth be told, I ended up doing it three times, because I didn’t leave enough space for my circle to have the embossed leaves hang out around it, so you can’t see the 2nd stamping, but I can admit my mistakes!)

Now, I know that it doesn’t look like a mini, yet. . . In the process of organizing my supplies, and school starting (this coming week) I cannot find a single pair of my 500 billion hole punches, nor my torture tool (what my kids call my crop o dile!). *sigh*

So, for more detailed photos, come back later this week! In the mean time, hop on through the list to see more fabulous artwork with this great stamp set! As a quick reminder, you will visit Maria’s blog next!

Until next time!

  1. Great use of this stamp! I almost went this direction too (stamped not embossed) so I’ll definitely have to make the card that was in my head now that I see how adorable it looks!

    This is a great start to your mini. I hope you find your “torture tool” soon. I’m glad I am not the only one to misplace my tools. 🙂
