Treasures- September Stamp of the Month

I have recently set a goal for myself to actually take my SOTMs out of their pretty little package and play with them. I know I am not alone in the number of stamps sets that I am "collecting", or saving for that perfect layout, but thanks to my blog, I now have an excuse to ink 'em up!

Here are a few cards I made with Treasures, September SOTM. This stamp set is so pretty and versatile.

Card 1: Perfect Day level 2 paper pack, cocoa ribbon, cocoa ink.

Card 2: Unforgettable Level 2 paper pack, Sorbet ribbon, blush and cocoa ink. Card layout: "Bullseye" from Wishes.

Card 3: That's Amore Level 2 paper pack, sparkles, blush, hollyhock and chocolate ink. Card layout: "Down the Middle" from Wishes.


This was my least favorite paper pack in the new catty, but the rich warm colors have really grown on me. I am so ready for fall!

I used Grace level 2 paper pack along with Aspiration and Grateful Hearts My Acrylix stamp sets.

Favorite Layouts

Tonight I was working on some cards with the new September SOTM, when my daughter commented on the number of cards I have made lately. She was suprised because I typically don't enjoy making cards. I much prefer scrapbooking and altered projects.
So, here are a few of my favorite layouts.
