Welcome to the Just Treats Stamp of the Month Blog Hop where we will be featuring the September Just Treats stamp set. I am so excited by this stamp set! I ♥LOVE♥ all the little icons and images designed perfectly for the upcoming holidays. If you have come here from Kathy Burrows’ blog, you are on the right path! When you are finished reading my post, you can click on the link at the end to move to the next blog. This blog hop is simple, fun, and full of ideas using the Just Treats stamp set. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.
Christmas came to mind when I first glanced at our Just Treats stamps set, and then I thought “Nope! I am not ready for Christmas no matter what the retail stores think“. After taking a second look at the stamp set, and really studying the images and sentiments, I realized that this set is intended for so much more than Christmas. Take a minute to really study this stamp set and think about all the backgrounds you could make, and borders, and embellishments, and cards and…..your imagination is your only limit.
Well, with the fall air rolling in and the mix of spices rising from my coffee, I decided to use this stamp set to create a Fall Thank You card for my ☕coffee☕ loving friends. This card not only uses the Just Treats stamps set, but it used quite a few other products from our New Holiday Expressions. How many can you spot?
I am sure you noticed that beautiful Boutique paper right away. I adore all the patterns and textures of this paper pack. Most people only notice the pales tones in this collection, but I found that Saffron Pattern paper right away and knew that it would make some wonderful fall projects. To keep with the fall color scheme, I decided that the Charcoal and Linen pattern papers would complement the Saffron and Candy Apple. Yes, that is a “true” red ink you see there in my sentiment and I added more red to the images with a Red Shimmer Brush. I’m not sure how well you can see it, but I brushed some Clear Shimmer on that Whipped Cream topping. ♥LOVE♥ that sparkle.
I’ve only mentioned a few of the new products I used on this card, but I am sure you saw many more that you can’t wait to play with. You can continue through the blog hop and see more ideas from twenty-one other Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month’s Just Treats stamp set and other great Close to My Heart products on their blogs.
