September SOTM Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be
featuring September’s SOTM, Fall
a set of 11 stamps.  If you have come here from Debra’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 here

Fall Scarecrow Card

 I love all of the yummy fall stamps on the September Stamp of the Month.  Plus the line images are perfect for trying out the new Exclusive Inks Markers!  The alcohol based markers color so smoothly with no streaks!  The best part….no special paper needed!  They are formulated to work great on Close To My Heart Paper!


No fall card is complete without some burlap!  I added a full piece of burlap ribbon behind my bow.  I then cut down a strip to make my bow.  I used one of the left over strips of burlap to thread my button! 

I used a few more of the images on the inside of the card as well. The Basics Collections markers are delayed a few weeks.  My card begged for some brown tones!  I colored my images with a mix of the Close To My Heart markers and a few Copics.

card is based on the sketch this week at Retro Sketches!  I am so happy that they have extended their
deadline on Friday evenings….more of a chance for me to play! 


If coloring is not your thing….here is a previous card I completed with no coloring!  The colors were added by paper piecing the stamp designs! You can view the full post here.
