Sharing From The Heart Blog Hop

This month's hop consists of  the Stamp of the Month, a color combo (Ponderosa Pine, Pansy Purple, Parchment, Smoothie, & Gray Flannel),  or a Fall creation. If you have come from Doreen's Blog you are on the right path. I hope you enjoy all the gorgeous creations in this hop. Be sure to leave a comment  when you see something you really like. Have fun and thanks for hopping with us.

I was temped to do the color combo (you know how I love Smoothie) but I signed up for a fall creation. I want to experiment with  making a pumpkin with ovals and stitching on a leaf. I used the Dreamin paper pack for my Fall color scheme. The tag is made with Typeset BTP.

Directions for pumpkin: Cut three 1 1/4" ovals using oval #2 on your CTMH Cricut Cartridge. Stamp a tone on tone background stamp on each oval. Overlap two ovals side by side and attach the 3rd oval on top with a pop up. You can add a stem at the top or a leaf. If you don't have the Cricut Cardridge you can use an oval punch, spellbinder, or any other source of oval.

Directions for the stitched leaf: Cut a 2"  leaf with leaf #2 on your CTMH Cricut Cartridge. To make the faux stitching, emboss your leaf  lines with your stylist on your paper trimmer. Sand the lines until the white core shows. Using your piercing tool make holes along the white lines to imitate stitching. If you don't have the Cricut Cardridge stamp a leaf and cut it out. Score your lines so the back of the leaf will show the white lines when you sand them.

Now it's time to hop over to Wendy's blog to see her amazing  Stamp of the Month creation. Happy hopping! See you next month.
