Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring Grateful for This Life stamp set , which is the September 2021 SOTM . If you have come here from Michelle Stewart’s Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

I just love all the different words in this stamp set and I wanted to use them as a main part of my layout. I did a couple different things on this layout that I haven’t done before and are very different for me. 1 – I used two different size parenthesis and 2 – I colored one of the wooden shapes and left the others natural. Both of these fit the layout well! To create the pattern on the banner, I used Shortbread Ink with a stencil on Shortbread paper for a tone-on-tone look that I LOVE!

Products used are all Close to My Heart: Grateful for This Life stamp set (September 2021 SOTM), As You Grow Paper Packet, Shortbread Ink, Scarlet Ink, Shortbread Cardstock, Harbour Cardstock, Scarlet Cardstock, Card Front Stencil Pack 3, Wood Hearts, Wood Brackets, Scarlet Shimmer Brush and Bitty Sparkles.

Now “Hop” on over to Melinda Everitt’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the Grateful for This Life stamp set is only available until September 30, 2021! Visit my website to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or sign up as a VIP Customer to qualify for a free SOTM each month!!

Check out the latest products from Close to My Heart! There are fall and holiday things in the new September/October book and even more goodies in the Core Catalog (these are available through August 2022!)

I’ve made many cards with the alcohol ink backgrounds. This one has more ink color, which I like. You can stamp directly on the glossy card. I choose Archival Black Ink to stamp the sentiment on this card so it would really stand out.
