September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Limited Edition

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  We are featuring the stamp set Limited Edition.  This stamp set is pretty cool.  I really had a lot of fun using it and can see myself using it alot because I love tags on my scrapbook pages.  I think that tags are a wonderful addition to a page and can do so many different interactive things.  If you have come from Shannon's Blog then you are on the right track if not that's ok as this hop makes a full circle.

Here is what the stamp set looks like:
With this stamp set the Tag and the Journaling box you can use the new Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge only available from your Close to my Heart Consultant to cut the tag/journal box.  It is super simple!

I made two one page layouts using this stamp set, please enjoy!

Layout #1 - This is a page that I am going to be making at a Gathering in September.  I just love the paper and what the stamp set adds to the page..see for youself:

Materials I used for this:
Limited Edition Stamp set S1109
Magic - Shuffled Deck pattern (left side) pg. 42
Roxie Paper Pack X7140B
Cardstock: Black, Desert Sand, Smoothie & Vanilla Cream
Inks: Black (Z2105) Smoothie (Z2196)
Desert Sand (Z2118) Tulip (Z2166)
Black Button Brads, Black Ribbon

I used a sponge dauber to distress the vanilla cream, desert sand and smoothie cardstock.  The flower was cut using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge at 3".  I used a dauber to ink the flower with Tulip ink.  I used black cardstock cut at 1/4" to make the ribbon on tag.  The tag was stamped with Smoothie ink and Desert sand. 

This 2nd page I did just for the fun of it.  I usually have a hard time getting out of my box.  So tilting this layout was hard for me.  I love the way it looks though.  I might be doing this more often now that I actually stepped out.

Materials I used for this page is exactly the same as the above so I won't list them again.
