September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop


Welcome to September's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month, we are featuring the stamp set "Just Treats" - a set of 22 stamps. This stamp set features 4 main stamps that highlight the main celebrations during the autumn and winter months, along with a friendship stamp. There are also lots of little images to go along with those celebrations. The bloggers along this blog hop will certainly show you many ways to use this stamp set, so sit back and enjoy the tour. 

You should have arrived here from Vickie O'Dell's blog

If you get lost, a list of all participating bloggers can be found on
 Melinda Everitt's blog.

The stamp set looks like this.



I really wanted to use the new Shaker Thin Cuts to make a shaker card. I LOVE the new Boutique papers so combining the two seemed like a perfect idea. 
I also wanted the shaker part of the card to be inserted within the card rather than having it sit on top, so I cut the circle into the card front. That way, the shaker is actually part of the card itself. The package containing the circular adhesive pieces and acetate sheets make it SO EASY to create these cards now! And you even get a bunch of leftover adhesive pieces to use on other projects... I masked the sentiment so I could stamp it in both Peacock and Sugarplum. 
I added a few too many sequins inside my card so they don't shake quite as nicely as I would like - it has been a while since I have made one of these so I know for next time! 



I hope you enjoyed my card.
