 I thought this stamp screamed " simplicity"!. It spoke to me in black and white. Well at least on the card it did . I lined up some of the Acrylic images on a clear block to create a pattern. I used Black Memento ink. I coloured in the tag with a Shin han twin touch marker-R11-carmine. I also coloured clear Rhinetones with Carmine. Although you might not be able to see this , I brushed our Clear Shimmer brush over the black stamped images to give it a sheen.




On the next project I wanted to show crafters that not only can one use this stamp for New years themes but other themes as well.

As you can see ,I used the small patterned block flags to create a border using alternating colours from the Whimsy palette of inks. This page is one of the 12 page layouts I am doing featuring our newest grand daughter,Georgia and her Daddy .

September brings the beginning of the fall colours,school and often I think of it as the beginning of a new year. Signs of autumn begin to show in the changing colours of the leaves,emerging harvests,pumkins etc.
I love the September Stamp of the month. I stamped the white background with our new Line It up from the Cricut bundle of stamps that come with the Flower Market Cartridge. I used the Artbooking cartridge to cut the pumpkin and the leaves and then stamped  using Sunset ink as my Tangerine ink as not arrived.  I coloured the stump and pumpkin leaves with my Shinhan twin touch markers,( Mahogany and sea green)The leaves were stamped with fern. I then used our new Shimmer Brush -Z3293 to both the pumpkin and the leaves. Gold sequins were also used to embellish.






Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment if you can. We love feedback and it keeps us motivated !Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the September SOTM is only available until September 30th
