September SOTM Blog Hop- Treasures

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring September's SOTM: Treasures, a set of 13 stamps. If you have come here from Laurie Levnik's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Jena's Blog and start from the beginning!

This month we have 69 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!

This first card is simple simple simple!! Can I say it again SIMPLE!! I actually found the inspiration from a thank you card that my parents got. When I saw the thank you card I thought it looks so much like the September SOTM. What do you think??? I random stamped the cardstock with versamark ink pad and then covered the ink with white daisy embossing powder. To make the powder stick you use the craft heater to melt the powder onto the card. Like I said EASY and SIMPLE!

The next two cards I found my ideas from the new Card Confidence Program called Wishes! I love this book--just another book to help me get my creative juice going!!

The second card is called Keep It Level. I used the small "pom pom" to create a sun by going around in circle. Then I took the stem to make the rays on the circle and then on the bamboo cardstock. Thank you to Katy D. who shared this creative idea of turning the "pom pom" into a sun! She really was thinking outside of the box to come up with this idea. The background and texture paper is a new paper from the paper pack called grace. I thought the flowers looked like different versions of the sun!!

The last card is called circle collection...so I went a little crazy with circles!

Even the two B&T duo from twitterpated has circles in it!!
