If you’re familiar with CTMH, you’ll know that every month a new stamp set is featured called the stamp of the month. When a $50 order is placed, you qualify to purchase it for $6. It’s a really great deal, actually.
November’s stamp of the month is really fun, especially if you love trees. There’s not just one style of tree, there’s multiple ones- something for every season. That’s why it’s called Seasonal Trees!
I always order the stamp of the month, because it’s exclusive. If I don’t order it during the month it’s available, I won’t be able to get it afterwards, and it isn’t available anywhere else. One month is all you get. It makes it quite a hot commodity!
Even though I usually order them, I rarely create with them during the month they’re “on”. Oops. I am going to try to remedy that! Here’s what I created with this stamp set this month:
I absolutely love these cards. I incorporated a couple other current CTMH stamps into the designs since there’s no sentiments in the SOTM set. I also sponged ink into the backgrounds in both cards. In the second card, I sponged some ink into the pile of leaves 🍁 around the base of the tree. Love! This card inspired a layout:
We adopted kitty last July, and because this event took place over the summer, fall leaves just wouldn’t fit the setting in my layout. So, I created evergreens, instead. (Truth be told, I’m smitten with the little birdhouse. So cute!!) And, like I mentioned above, I needed to rely on other stamps to complete my layout.
Join me again in a few weeks for another fun stamp of the month (and super cute projects made with it!!)
