I know I want to create a layout with this stamp set to document my love of crafting but I realized I really do not have any photos of me doing what I love.  I have snapped a few of my son who has taken to wanting to craft with me.  So I am thinking I will need to incorporate those into to it.  So for now I am going to focus on a card I was inspired to crate.

I used the masking technique to stamp the sentiments in Eggplant and Black.  I did use the coordinating Cricut cut for the larger sentiment which I cut using Bashful.  I then used my stitch guide ruler to create the stitch look around the Linen card stock.  I used the Documented paper for the background and accented it with Eggplant and Bashful cardstock.  I also used the scissors Cricut cut from You are Here cartridge.  You can find both Cricut cuts HERE.

No crafting project is complete with out a little shine so I used my liquid glass to make the hearts pop and added a few gems.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of August and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

May Stamp of the Month ~ Classic Summer Bash

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring May’s stamp of the month ~CLASSIC SUMMER BASH (S1805) a set of 25.

I love this jar!! I knew that would be the center of my creation.  I decided to do a jar full of flowers.  I really am happy with how it turned out.  I crated more of a jar look by using white daisy cardstock as the base of the jar then stamped the jar image on velum to layer.

Here is a side view so you can see that layering.

For this card I got to play with a few of the new products from the Seasonal Expressions 2 that is now live!! I used Beautiful Friendship paper pack for the background. The flowers are Trillium Cluster – #MD6F60F which is from Flower Market.  I did slice some of the stems and leave off a few flowers but wanted to create a cluster.  I used Canary, Nutmeg, Linen and Fern as the colors for the flowers.  I used the Fresh Air Cardmaking and Die set for the sentiment.  I masked the stamp so I could get the Smile in canary ink.  I added a little of the Blue Burlap Ribbon and Clear Sparkles to finish off the card.  I did watercolor a bit of blue on the white stamped jar.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of May and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

November Stamp of the Month ~ Through the Year

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring October’s stamp of the month ~Through the Year (S1711) a set of 28.

I got an idea to make a card to using all the months of the year.  I could not find a stamp set to match the sentiment I had in mind so I created one.

For this card I used the basic fundamentals for the base.  I then used Linen cardstock to stamp the months of the year with Pewter ink.  I then used velum to soften the stamped Linen.  I also used Heather cardstock for the banner which I cut with the cricut and used black pen to write the sentiment.  The Love you is our silver cardstock also cut on the cricut.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of November and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

thoughtful-flowers-dec-2016I love these flowers and the fact they lend themselves so well to being colored.  I started by just stamping a lot of the flowers on Watercolor paper then decided which ones I wanted to use.  I chose the big flower in the lower corner then started painting.

thoughtful-flowers-december-sotm-catscrapbooking-comI chose one of the vases form Flower Market and cut it in Gold Glitter Paper.  Then cut a banner from Artistry.  The background paper is Whimsy Fundamentals.  Here is the same card but I added the Glaicier twine bow – not sure which one I like better….
