September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

I'm so excited to be participating in the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! 

If you've come here from Haley's blog, you're in the right place.

This month's stamp of the month is called Poster Tidings and is great for super easy cards or scrapbook pages.  I thought it would be beautiful with the new fall paper, Huntington.

This is the card I came up with:



Prior to stamping the words on the card stock, I tried stamping on vellum and embossing with the Detail Clear Embossing Powder.  I didn't like it as well.  It didn't show up very well on the Cocoa card stock I was overlaying it on.  (I know, my colors aren't very true, but you get the idea.)




I also stamped the little vines branch from the Love This (B1432) stamp set.  I inked in Autumn Terracotta and used the Sponge Dauber in Chocolate to get the two tones.





I also smeared some of the Almond Glitz Glitter Gel on the edges to make it a little sparkly.


Supplies Used:

Paper Pack: Huntington
Stamp Sets Used:  Poster Tidings (Stamp of the Month) and Love This (B1432)
Stamp Pads Used:  Autumn Terracotta, Goldrush, Chocolate
Glitz Glitter Gel - Almond
Square Studs (Z1705)

I hope you like the stamp set and card that I came up with.  :)

Happy Stamping!
