Paper Garden September Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our Stamp of the Month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. We have all been creating with "Paper Garden September Stamp of the MonthStamp set. If you have arrived here from Britt McDonald - Crafty Connections then you are in the right place. If you landed here another way, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. Follow the links, check out all the amazing ideas and eventually you'll come right back here to where you started.

Today I would like to share with you my card which features the Paper Garden September Stamp of the Month available exclusively throughout September for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75. 


You will find the stamp set in the new Holiday Expressions Catalogue that has been launched TODAY as well as the new 2015-2016 Annual Inspirations Catalogue. So many exciting new products. 


I think this stamp set is so lovely for both pages and cards. I wanted to create a card so I looked at the Originals Card Confidence Program™ (soft cover) book on page 116 I found an idea for a simple card called Originals Pretty simple. 

There is a great recipe and the below card is a photo of the idea in the book. The recipe is so versatile and looks so different in different colours, textures and stamp sets. 


I used a 2 inch strip of the green and flipped it for the grey colour on the back of the Zoe Paper (dimensions are in the book). I pulled out the Slate Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad
to match the Zoe paper and stamped the two stamps from the Paper Garden September Stamp of the Month (wire and flower).

The wire looking stamp is about 1.75 inches x 1.75 inches on 12" X 12" White Daisy Cardstock and the flower stamp is quite large and I used the large  4" X 5" My Acrylix® Block. Once I had fussy cut out the flower with Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors I put on Thin 3-D Foam Tape to add some dimension. 


To finish off the card I put Enamel & Glitter Duos Green Triangles in the corner of the grey square. 



I took awhile to decide that I needed to add a title. So I used the THANKS title from the Hello, Life!—Cardmaking stamp set that is only available during September. We are going to do a blog post about this later in the month so watch this space. 



 Remember this great stamp set Paper Garden September Stamp of the Month is only available throughout September from your Close to My Heart Consultant

Thanks so much for dropping by to check out my latest project, I hope you get to make a card this month too. I'm really interested to hear what you think about it, so I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop on our Australasian Blog Hop which is Mandy Hall - Hall of Indulgence.

  Come back to see me again soon.
