September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring September's SOTM, which is called Paper Garden.  If you have come here from Terrie's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog:  http://ifyoublingit.blogspot.com/p/stamp-of-month-blog-hop-list.html.



This month we have over 30 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

                            
I got the directions for this card on Cardmaker Magazine's current issue.  It is one of the Fun with Folds cards.  I cut a piece of Glacier card stock to 7.5 x 3.5.  I made a pencil mark along the right edge 1.5' from the top right corner.  Then made another pencil mark along the bottom edge 3 inches from the bottom left corner.  I connected the marks and cut off that triangle.  Then I used the background honeycomb stamp to stamp along the edge with Versamark ink.  Then I sprinkled white embossing powder and heat embossed.  Place the panel of card stock on your Score board with the long edge at the top, stamped side down. Score the panel at 3", 3.5", 5" and 6 1/8".  Accordion fold along the score lines beginning with valley fold at 3 inch line.  Below picture shows the back side of the Glacier card stock after stamping and scoring. 
Here is an up close shot of the fold with the embossing.


 I then cut the leaves and the two flowers using the new Artistry cartridge and stamped them in Glacier and rolling the edges in Canary ink.  The leaves are stamped in Sweet Leaf.  I used a little foam tape to pop up the flowers and added some Sorbet Shimmer trim.
