Stamp of the Month Blog Hop -- Feel So Blessed

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Gina Brandstetter, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon my little corner of the blog world, simply start here and continue hopping until you return here -- our fun hop is one big loop for your viewing pleasure. 

The month's featured stamp set is S1709 Feel So Blessed (pictured below).  This set is only available until September 30th and is only $5 with a $50 Close to My Heart purchase.

I know we are featuring the SOTM, but have you seen the exclusive limited-release special for National Stamping Month??  It includes a fabulous card kit and a beautiful multi-layer stamp set.  I am in love with this special and couldn't help combining the fun interactive card base with this month's stamp of the month.  What do you think?

Here are a couple close-ups of the front when the card is closed and the "inside"/base.


Supplies used:
*Feels So Blessed (September SOTM)
*From the Heart Card Bases and Envelopes (September Exclusive Special)
*Poppy Exclusive Inks stamp pad (NEW!)
*Saffron Exclusive Inks stamp pad (NEW!)
*Archival Black stamp pad (NEW!)
*Gold Glitter Gems

Until next time, design with {heart}!


  1. Great idea to incorporate it with the special for the month!

  2. Great card, I need to get more card bases and envelopes so I can create outside the kit. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Wonderful card, love how you used the card kit and combined the outline letters with outlined feathers - really simple and elegant.
