September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Paper Garden

Today is a super exciting day in CTMH Land!  The brand new, gorgeous Annual Inspirations Idea Book and a festive fall/holiday Seasonal Expressions is now LIVE to everyone!  (We consultants have been enjoying them for a month or more already.)  In the Seasonal Expressions supplement, you'll find the stamps of the month for the four months of the "life" of the supplement: September, October, November, and December.  As always, I'm kicking off the month with the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop group, and I am absolutely in love with the September stamp of the month, Paper Garden!  (If you're already strolling through the Paper Garden, then you've probably wandered here from Alyson's blog.  After you admire my blooms, you'll meander on over to Terrie's blog next.)
My card uses the Nevermore color scheme of Whisper, Slate, Eggplant, and Black.  To create the beautiful blooms, I inked up my stamped first in Whisper, then layered on Slate, and then inked the edges in Eggplant.  Isn't this new color gorgeous?  The Whisper panel is mounted onto a piece of Black and then adhered to the Colonial White card base.
These two flowers (and the leaf, not pictured) are cuts on the new CTMH/Cricut Artistry cartridge.  I love the text and designs built into this stamp set!  I finished off this elegant card with black shimmer trim and a silver sequin.

I also have a completely different look with the following 5"x7" card.  My second card is my contribution for a great color challenge at the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog.  If you'd like to learn more about this card, click HERE.

Thanks for walking (or hopping) through the Paper Garden with me.  Now go to Terrie's blog!
