CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop-From the Heart NSM

Welcome to the CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop!

We are featuring the National Stamping Month kit, From the Heart!
If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can find the complete list at the end of this post. If you came here from  Annette's Blog you're in the right place.

Now on to my project!
I decided to try a few different things. The first one I'm not pleased with and it was my first attempt with this card kit so I messed up a few things.

Supplies used for the Christmas card is the January Word Puzzle, Christmas tunes, October SOTM, and of course the From the Heart kit, Sapphire, Ruby and Nutmeg exclusive inks and the retired desert sand ink.

This second card was a little better. Struggling with not bending the side gold parts. All the stamps are from the stamp set, From the Heart. Exclusive inks used are Goldrush, Toffee, Nutmeg, Charcoal, Saffron, Canary, Fern and New England Ivy. The sparkles are form my stash. I decided to add a little watercolor which I'm not really good at. Practice makes perfect.

Thanks for checking out my projects!

September SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

The stamp set for the September Stamp of the Month is called Feel So Blessed(S1709)
There are 26 stamps to choose from. 
Spend $50. and you can get this stamp set for just $6. This stamp set is only available until the last day of September. This is a very versatile stamp set as you see with the different cards I made.

I decide to make a variety of cards with this stamp set.

The Grateful card I used Saffron and Fern Cardstock, Fern Exclusive Ink, Enchantment Fundamental paper pack(Z3352) and Enamel green triangles(Z3123).

This Sympathy card I used Sapphire and Goldrush Exclusive Inks, Sapphire Cardstock, Blue Burlap ribbon(Z3325), the sentiment is from Words of Comfort(retired), and Gold Glitter gems(Z3312). The feathers were fussy cut.

This Birthday card I chose Charcoal, Pewter, Pebble and Juniper inks with the border from the stamp set, Basic fundamentals paper pack(3353), grey gems(Z3089) and the stamps I received from Convention this year.

This Birthday card is made with Sapphire and Crystal Blue Exclusive Inks and Cardstock, White Daisy Cardstock, Finding the Words stamp set(retired) and the new Colourblock Alphabet(D1729)
There are a variety of substitutes for the retired items I've used. Just check through the new Annual Inspirations for ideas.
