Today I’d like to share another card I made using the September Stamp of the Month called “Blessed Beyond Measure”. I have to say this is one of my favs! I used the woodgrain chevron paper from the Rustic Home collection, another one of my favs! The coordinating Cricut cuts are from the Artistry cartridge by Close To My Heart.
I colored the leaves by sponging with various Fall colors and stamped the pumpkin with Autumn Terracotta. The oval shapes are some nesting dies I had in my stash. The ribbon is from the Rustic Home Ribbon Pack.
You can get this wonderful stamp for only $5.00 by placing a $50.00 Close To My Heart order HERE!
September is National Stamping Month and we will be celebrating stamping at Heart 2 Heart the next two weeks. This week the challenge is to feature STAMPING in your projects. Fun, fun, fun!
I chose to use a few different stamping techniques on my card–creating a background, heat embossing, sponging and using coordinated Cricut cuts with the stamped images of the September Stamp of the Month. I really love this “Blessed Beyond Measure” stamp set, mainly because of the sentiments, but also because I love the Fall colors you see in pumpkins and falling leaves. How about you?
I used the gold embossed striped paper from the Rustic Home collection along with Chocolate cardstock for the background of the card. I stamped the small leaf multiple times on the Chocolate cardstock in Versamark ink, applied clear embossing powder and then heat embossed. I really like the tone on tone, shiny effect this creates.
Since the leaf stamps on this set have coordinating Cricut cuts from Artistry, I just cut a bunch of leaves and randomly sponged them in various Fall colors. I then stamped the “veins” in Chocolate ink. I adhered the leaves along the card as if they were blowing in the wind, added a strip of lacy ribbon from the Rustic Home collection and a simple sentiment matted in a shiny gold paper.

This week at Bitten by the Bug 2, the theme is Focus On You. We are to somehow use a pair of GLASSES on our projects. Well, I have had my eye (so to speak) on the eyeglass overlay cut from the Artistry cartridge by Close To My Heart for quite some time. This challenge provided the perfect time to use it and the adorable picture of my grandson sporting his Harry Potter glasses was the perfect subject for my layout!
I used the new Enchantment Paper Fundamentals, also from Close To My Heart and Peacock cardstock. I love how the background paper behind the glasses overlay has rows of letters that reminded me of an eye chart! The silly eyes that I sprinkled around on the layout came from the Photo Booth cartridge. The font is also from Artistry.
Please check out the other design team projects at Bitten by the Bug 2 to see more creative projects that Focus On You with eyeglass Cricut cuts. Then link up your own projects for everyone to enjoy!
