September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our 
September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Poster Tidings S1309
(FYI...you will need a 4x5 block to use these stamps!)
 
If you've just arrived here from KRISTA's BLOG,
then you are on the correct path.

Here is an easy fall card I created (standard size) featuring our
NEW Huntington papers X7174B (above).

...and THIS ink pad is my secret as to how I inked my large stamp!
(Lay your block stamp-side up onto your work surface,
then rub the ink on using a left-to-right,
not back and forth, side-swiping motion
to leave little lines in the image intentionally).
 This was a product (above) that we used to sell years ago...the pads came un-inked and then you would use re-inkers to add whatever colors you want to use to each little strip on the pad. This ink pad is probably almost ten years old now, but I just couldn't resist getting it out again to use with this stamp set (below)...I sure have missed my favorite rainbow pad! You could probably come up with a similar effect by creating your own "puddle pad" using a piece of felt and the re-inker colors of your choice.
I've also found these available for purchase on amazon.com :)
  
 
Now you can visit NIKKA's BLOG next! 
Enjoy the hop!!
