October Stamp of the Month - Autumn Air


Welcome!

Glad you could join us today!  A blog hop is just one big loop of fun and creative ideas. So if you're joining me here, grab your beverage of choice, and sit back ready to be inspired by creative ideas for using this new Close To My Heart stamp of the month


If you are coming from Becca's blog , you are on the right path.  At the end of this post you will see a link to Judy Faye's blog yo continue following the hop.  If you get disconnected somewhere along the way, you can find a complete list of blog hop participants here.



The stamp of the month, Autumn Air, is a set of 14 stamps great for 
fall scrapbooking and card making.   



For my project I paired Autumn Air with the Hawthorn paper pack and Stickers 


and the sunflower from the Sympathy Sunflower Stamp and Thin Cuts to create a fall scrapbook layout.  I loved using the border stamp from this stamp set along the top of the layout.  The sunflowers were stamped on the Saffron print paper in the Hawthorn kit.  The green leaves were stamped with Evergreen ink on Sage cardstock.

 Autumn Air is available only through the month of October.  After seeing all the great ideas in this blog hop, you're going to want to add this to your stamp collection.  You can purchase this set for $18.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) 
through your Close To My Heart consultant or find it here.
