November CTMH SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the November 2018 SOTM Blog Hop featuring the stamp set Seasonal Trees. This month there are almost 20 Consultants sharing projects they created with the CTMH Stamp Of The Month. We try to keep our blog hop easy: just keep clicking on the link to the next blog (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next post. Our blog hop is circular so visiting the next blog will take you back to where you started.

You should have arrived here from ***Joyful Creations by Joyce Houck***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

While I think this stamp set would also make beautiful Christmas Cards and Christmas is less than eight weeks away, I am not really to throw myself into Christmas card making just yet. While our fall colors have not been as awe inspiring as most people would like, there are some trees just reaching their peak. This is the view I am lucky enough to have from my office window; it is too bad I cannot just stare out the window and daydream.

Inspired by the colors I inked the leaves with a variety of colors and then matted with the colors I wanted to highlight.

I stamped the sentiment using Espresso. I wish I selected black. Of course it was the last of my stamping and the one thing I stamped without the Platform so at the late hour I was working I did not want to try to re-stamp – having clear stamps makes it easier, but clear stamps do not compensate for nervous and potentially unsteady hands.

Before you head to ***Alayne Fleming's Willing Hands***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Consultant website.

I love to hear what folks think about the items I create. If you have a little time, please leave a comment letting me know what you think of my card. I hope you are enjoying the projects created with Seasonal Trees — the November Stamp of the Month. Thank you for hopping with us!

So you do not have to scroll back up, the next stop on the hop is ***Alayne Fleming's Willing Hands***.


Thank you for leaving a comment! I enjoy reading them.
