Poster Tidings

Welcome to our September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring September's SOTM which is "Poster Tidings", a set of 2 stamps.  If you have come here from Georgia''s blog at "Trust Your Crazy Ideas", you are on the right path!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here an work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultants here.  

This month we have approximately 58 Close to My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs.  This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  Here we go!

I had purchased some Ikea frames for $1.29 a couple of weeks ago -- they measure 5" x 7" and are just perfect for some casual wall or table art.

I cut a piece of designer paper from our Huntington paper pack at 5" x 7".  I then used our Artbooking Cricut cartridge to cut out the tree at 5" using the Real Dial Size key.  I cut it 3 times using Autumn Terracotta, Barn Red, and Olive cardstock -- all of which are coordinating colors for the Huntington paper pack.

I stamped the image from the September Stamp of the Month using Olive, Autumn Terracotta, and Barn Red inks.

The sentiments on the top and bottom of the frame are the zip strips from the paper.
