Blessed Beyond Measure September 2016 Blog Hop

Welcome to the September 2016 SOTM Blog Hop featuring the stamp set Blessed Beyond Measure. This month there are about 30 bloggers sharing projects they created with the CTMH Stamp Of The Month. If blog hopping is new to you, we try to keep it easy: just keep clicking on the link to the next blog (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next stop. Our blog hop is circular so visiting the next blog will take you back to where you started.

Blessed Beyond Measure (S1609) is an exclusive D-size set of 19 stamps that is only available for purchase during the month of September 2016. Recommended CTMH My Acrylix® Blocks for this stamp set are: 1" x 1" (Y1000), 1" x 3½" (Y1002), 2" x 2" (Y1003) and 2" x 3½" (Y1009). The images outlined in red (pumpkin and leaves) coordinate with the Cricut® Artbooking cartridge (Z3169).

You should have arrived here from ***CTMH Craftings by Lauren Moore***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

This was not the first card I created for the blog hop, but when I was creating the list of products I used I realized there was a retired alphabet stamp in the mix. Fortunately I had the time to go back to the drawing board to create a new card and be a bit more careful with my product selection. I hope you will stop by on Saturday to see the first card I created.

Before you head to ***Alyson Mayo's Create with Alyson***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
I stamped using two of the sprigs and Champagne to create a wreath-like shape then colored the leaves in with the Fern and the waterbrush. I then stamped with Desert Sand, Peacock and Poppy and Black.

If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Online Business Address.

Before you leave I would be delighted if you left me a comment letting me know what you think of my project. So you do not have to scroll back up, the next stop on the hop is ***Alyson Mayo's Create with Alyson***.

Thank you for hopping with us. I hope you are finding much inspiration.
