September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Feel So Blessed

Close To My Heart 
September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop 

Feel So Blessed

A blog hop is just one big loop of fun ideas.  If you are coming from Tracie's blog,  you're on the right path. If you are starting here, just look for the link at the end of my post (and successive posts) to see which blog to visit next.  

This month's stamp set, Feel So Blessed, features 26 stamps and is available only through the month of September.  You can purchase this cute set for $17.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant. .

For my project I worked on the opening page for a new album I intend to start this fall to include photos and journaling about all the wonderful blessings in my life. 

To begin this layout, I traced a partial circle with pencil, created a mask of the feather stamp and then stamped feathers around the line with Expresso ink.  I then used a blender pen to shade in the feathers using Expresso, Goldrush, Saffron, and Fern inks.  The small flowers were cut from the Falling For You floral paper. 

CTMH supplies used  
Cardstock: Expresso, Goldrush, Fern
Paper: Falling For You, White Daisy, Espresso, Goldrush (lighter side) and Fern (lighter side) Cardstock
Ink: Expresso, Fern, Goldrush, and Saffron

Thanks for stopping by today.  Now, join me as we hop on to see more ideas for this fun stamp set as we  visit Miss Carrie's Creations .  Be sure to visit all the consultants who have joined in on this blog hop for lots of inspiration for this stamp set.  If for some reason, you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of participating consultants on Melinda's blog to get back on track.
