CTMH September Fall/Halloween Blog Hop

Welcome to OUR September Fall/ Halloween Blog Hop!  Each month we will showcasing a Theme of OUR amazing ARTISTE Cricut Cartridge which can be purchased Exclusive through your Close to My Heart Independent Consultant.
We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a awesome lineup with some amazing talented CTMH Consultants ladies.  There will be lots of fun project along the hop!
If you came from Vanessa's blog then you are in the right place!

Here is my fall table setting, I am having a Family Fall Harvest meal and thought I would make place settings for everyone, I used the New Artiste Cartirdge to make most of the project items.
Here you can see the whole place setting. There is a wineglass, waterglass, napkin, name place, and on the placemat there is a decoration. Below there are some closeups and I'll explain them for you.

The placemat is just a piece of honey cardstock cut 12"x9", then stamped with the border stamp from the Fall Favorites SOTM Stamp Set. The pumpkin and leaf are found on page 78 of the Artiste handbook, and in the instruction manual on page 60. It is cut from Goldrush and Topiary Cardstock, I then inked the leaf with Olive and New England Ivy Ink until I got this desired effect.

This place card is stamped on Colonial White Cardstock, again using the border stamp from the Fall Favorites SOTM. Then using our new Alcohol Markers I colored it in. The name is stamped using the Urban Alphabet and Chocolate Ink using the Swipe method. Cutting some leaves from the Art Philosophy Cartridge I colored those using the Alcohol Markers. This piece is cut at 4 1/2"x9", then using my bone folder I made score marks at 1", 4 1/2" & 8". Fold and glue the bottom together.

This wine glass cover is actually a cupcake holder. It can be found on page 78. To keep everything in sync, I used the Border Stamp once again.

The cover for the water glass is also found on page 78, I cut this from the shift/card feature at fit to page so that it would fit around the water glass. Then using more stamps from the Fall Favorites SOTM Stamp Set, I created this fun Fall Design. Using chocolate Ink to stamp the images in, then using the Alcohol Markers to color the pumpkins.

I so hope my table setting has inspired you to create a fun Fall Harvest Theme of your own. Happy creating! Don't forget to leave me a comment, I love comments!
