CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - September

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for September. This month we are featuring the stamp set "Fall Favourites". 

Hop along with me & a bunch of other great CTMH consultants! We've created a whole lot of artwork for you, all using the September Stamp of the Month. If you've come here from Wanda's Blog, you are on the right path. If this is your first stop on the hop, that will work too (just keep hopping till you get back here again).

To continue along the hop, just follow the link at the end of each post to go to the next site. We hope that following the hop will give you lots of inspiration and ideas for using this month's stamp set, along with the many other great CTMH products you'll see in each post!


My creation for you this month is a 3D item created with the new CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge!   I created a lunch sack style gift bag and matching tag.  With the addition of the September stamp of the month to decorate the tag, I thought this would make a cute little gift (a teacher or a friend, perhaps) in the coming autumn months!    The warm tones of the Clementine paper pack are great for fall!  





My bag was inspired by a back to school gift bag created by Fancy Melissa.  

I stamped the images from the featured stamp set "Fall Favourites" on my kraft tag using the brand new CTMH pigment ink in "Saddle" as I knew the pigment ink would be much more vibrant on the kraft paper than regular dye ink would have been.   The sentiment (stamped in Twilight Dye-based ink on Creme Brûlée cardstock) "Have a Splendid Day" is from the Harvest Happiness stamp set.    I used our great new burlap ribbon to tie my bag closed and attach the ribbon.  I sponged the edges of my bag using our Saddle Dye-based Ink.    The bag is cut from the "Noel" key on the Artiste cartridge at "Fit to Page".   The tag was cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge at 3.5" and the scalloped oval is cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge at 1.25".  

The September stamp of the month is available from your CTMH consultant from September 1st to 30th.  It can be purchased for $17.95, or get it for just $5 with every purchase of $50 or more during the month of September!   A must have stamp set for fall!
