September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop


Welcome to September's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month, we are featuring the stamp set 
"Feel So Blessed" - a set of 26 stamps. This is a wonderful stamp set for this time of the year as our Canadian Thanksgiving holiday is coming up early in October and the leaves will be changing before long, making everyone think about the beauty that surrounds us. The sentiments in this stamp set are all about gratitude - a theme that is always at the top of the list in the autumn season. The bloggers along this blog hop will certainly show you many ways to use this stamp set, so sit back and enjoy the tour. 

You should have arrived here from Corinna Murphy's blog

If you get lost, a list of all blogs can be found on Melinda Everitt's blog

The stamp set looks like this.



I expect many of the bloggers along with way will choose to use autumn based colours. I chose a completely different route and used softer colours. I used the main sentiment and surrounded it with an image, cut twice, from Flower Market. I stamped the image on vellum and heat embossed it and then turned that into a scroll. Everything is set on top of the silver foil paper that is embossed. It is very hard to photograph that foil paper without getting shadows... I also brushed the flowers with the clear shimmer brush. 



This shows a bit of the shimmer on the flowers. 



I hope you enjoyed my project.
