CTMH September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  You should've hopped here from Katy's blog. If so, you're on the right track. Remember, this hop is a circle so you should eventually get back to the first blog you started with.

For my project, I decided to cut a card and the word Hello from the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge.  I cut the word at just under 1" from the B key. I label my handbook a differently. I label the 5 rows A-E and the keys going across 1-10.  I call that key D5 because it is the fifth key in the fourth row.The card is from the Spring key or E3.  I cut the card at 5.5" and that gave me a finished A2 card, or 4.25 x 5.5".

I stamped the scarecrow in Saddle pigment ink on Colonial White cardstock and colored it with our new Alcohol markers.  I didn't keep track of the coloring, so I can't really say which color is where. 
The word "FALL" was stamped using Autumn Terracotta Pigment Ink on Colonial White cardstock.
The pumpkins were cut out of Autumn Terracotta cardstock. I cut the scarecrow, FALL, and the pumpkins with microtip scissors.

The word Hello and the scarecrow were glued directly to the card. FALL and the pumpkins were attached using 3-D Foam Tape.

Inside the card, I added a 4.25 x 5.5 rectangle of Autumn Terracotta and stamped the pumpkins in Autumn Terracotta Pigment Ink.

Now, Hop on over to Judy Garner's Blog and see what she has created for you to enjoy.
