September SOTM Blog Hop - Paper Garden

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! 
We will be featuring September's SOTM

If you have come here from Catherine Nowak, 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:  http://ifyoublingit.blogspot.com/p/stamp-of-month-blog-hop-list.html.
This month we have approximately 39 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the September SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!  

I've used the Pinwheel Fold card to show the September Stamp of the Month and the Nevermore paper. The outer flowers were cut with the Cricut cartridge and stamped in Sunset ink.  The inside flowers were inked with Eggplant as was the sentiment.  The sentiment is from Perfect Picture (D1681) from our new Cricut Cartridge, Artistry, the frame was cut from the cartridge.  The belly-band was cut with the Cricut.  The leaves were stamped with fern ink on fern paper, cut with the Cricut cartridge Artiste, sanded and then veins were dry embossed and the leaves folded and curled to create a 3-D effect. Along with the leaves, I added strands of the extra thick gray twine.  I also added strips of silver shimmer trim next to the sentiment and around the frame some Bitty Sparkles.
Using the Bulk Nevermore paper - same folds.

The flowers are inked with Eggplant and the center of the 
front flower was covered with Liquid Glass and inked with the Marigold SinHan marker.
