Blessed Beyond Measure (September SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  Soon the weather will be changing to Autumn, and the Blessed Beyond Measure stamp set contains all the images you need to show your gratitude for the season.         

If you have come here from Inky Hearts, you are on the right path!  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  

Starting with an embossed wood grain background from the Rustic Home paper pack, this card just makes you think of Thanksgiving and everything in the Autumn season.  The leaf shapes were cut using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge, and they coordinate with the leaf stem images in the Blessed Beyond Measure stamp-of-the-month set.  The leaf stem pieces were embossed using Clear Detail Embossing Powder over the pigment ink which matches each of the colors of cardstock used.  These are Cranberry, and two brand-new colors of Willow and Lemon.  The frame for the sentiment was also cut using the Artbooking cartridge, and then it was embossed using Saddle pigment ink.    

Place a $50 minimum order this month (September 2016) and you are eligible to purchase the Blessed Beyond Measure stamp set for only $5. It is also available for $17.95 without a qualifying purchase.  

Now "Hop" on over to Priscilla's Paperie blog to see her work.  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas.
