"Just Treats" - September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop


Happy September! While I can't believe it's September 1st, I'm THRILLED today is September 1st! LOL Why, you ask? Well, today is the day our NEW Holiday Expressions Idea Book went live to the public. Why do I mention that disclaimer? Well...Consultants got to see them at Convention in June and were able to order them beginning August 1st. I've had fun creating with someof them and will be sharing them here and in my VIP Group


You can view a digital copy of the NEW PRODUCTS by flipping, virtually, through the book found on this link. Want your own hard copy so you can highlight products and make your wish list with ease? You can get it FREE when you place an order! (If you aren't ready to place an order, you can get one sent to your mailbox for just $6.45. You will receive a $5 credit from me when you place your order. More details about this option when you contact me.)


Today, in this Blog Hop, we are featuring this CA-UTE stamp set, "Sweet Treats". It has fun sentiments and images for everyday use and also for upcoming holidays. I have no doubt you will get to see it used in various ways as you make your way around the hop. 

If you aren't familiar with our Stamp of the Month special, you can find complete details here. In quick summary, you can purchase this D-size stamp set (valued at $18.95) for $5 when you place a $50 order! It's such a great value and a wonderful way to add a bonus to your monthly product purchases. And wait until you see those for the upcoming months! 😉

If you are coming from Michelle's Blog, you are on the right track. Should you get lost along the way, you can find a complete list of participants here.
For my creation,  I couldn't help but incorporate the cute polka dot pattern paper (top left) from the Oh What Fun paper pack. Yes, it is my favorite and I bet those who know me could have guessed that easily. The patterns are so cheerful and fun!


The simplicity of this card, with the BRIGHT colors and images, are sure to put a smile on anyone's face. Don't you agree? A few simple elements makes this perfect for anyone.


I used the Turquoise Blue and Cherry Pink Shin Han Markers to color in the letters on the stamp. So the stamped images didn't bleed, I used the Archival Black Ink Pad. Raspberry and Ballerina (a new color) were used to stamp the swirls in the candies. I also add a bit of the Bashful Shimmer Brush Pen to add some glitz to the candies (which is challenging to see). It was a fun simple addition to give them a bit of a sparkle. It's on sale for just $2, by the way! I also incorporated some White Twine.

Take a moment to let me know what you think of this stamp set and/or the card. Then, head on over to Wendy's Blog. There's no doubt you'll feel the need to get this stamp set in your hands when you're done. :)

Wishing you a great September and an enjoyable Labor Day weekend!
