I really love this stamp set!  These quails are so adorable!!! I though this may be a great anniversary card and since my anniversary is next month, I am ahead of the game.  I stamped the sentiment “together is the best place to be” on the inside. Sorry I did not take a photo.

I did a bit of paper piecing and watercolor for my birds.  I then rock an rolled the Love This in juniper and peacock.  The birds were stamped in Archival Black and then I stamped them in peacock.  I then cut the breast panel on the one on the left and the top for the one on the right.

January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop ~ Adore You

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!  This month we are featuring January’s stamp of the month ~Adore You (S1701) a set of 12.

I have been planning to design my family calendar but time has not been my friend these last few months. So needless to say I am running behind and have only completed the first 6 months. The good news is I have started and will have it done this week (I hope :-)). While I was working on it I decided to incorporate this months stamp set on April as I felt the colors would be perfect for flowers.

One thing I do when I make my calendar is I use a photo from that month the year before.  Well I forgot that it snowed for Easter last year in April so maybe I should have done snowflakes instead of flowers…. The colors still work and I am hoping for a more traditional spring day for this year’s Easter.

For the April calendar page I used the Enchantment Paper Pack and for this layout the colors are Poppy and Fern. I used my Black Archival ink to stamp the Adore You flowers.  I used Poppy ink with the Bistro Script Stamp Set.  The hearts are stamped in fern using the Way to Go Stamp Set.  I used the PML – Tabbed Journaling Cards to mat the photo.  Then it was put into a 6 X 12 Memory Protector Flip Flap.

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 January and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

yuletide-joy-2016It was actually quite fun to create a festive card for the Holidays.

yuletide-joy-2016I decided to incorporate my favorite thing the New Flower Market Cartridge to create a fun accent with this adorable stocking.  I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the stocking.   I then used watercolors to add color to this stamped stocking.  The Flower Market cuts Holly Berry #MD7AA86,  Holly Branch Bundle #MD72DD2, and Pine Needles Branch #MD67851. I used the Red Enamel Gems Z3090 to replace the holly berries associate with the holly berry leaves. I added a little white watercolor splatter and used my white gel pen to make the stitching.

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 September and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

11010304_10206774736873265_5056244779494318833_oI love this stamp set as the font looks like chalkboard lettering so I knew immediately I planed to use White Daisy or Colonial ink on a dark cardstock such as Black.  I was flipping through the photos I had to scrapbook and saw some fun photos of my son with one of our dogs.  I had just gotten my camera for Mother’s day that year so I had it with me all the time.  I knew the “Life is Wonderful” would be a perfect title for this layout.  I decided to mix up my papers and so I used Chalk it up with Jackson and added the Cranberry Twill ribbon to the mix.  I am really happy the way this turned out, take a look for yourself.

Life is Wonderful ~ July SOTM ~ Jackson paper pack ~ Chalk it Up paper pack ~ CTMH ~ catscrapbooking.comI really love the way these paper packs went together even though if you layout all the papers you would never think to use them together.  I used the cranberry to add a little pop of bright color and to match the red in the photos. Here is a close up of the tittle and individual pages.

Life is Wonderful detail ~ July SOTM ~ Jackson paper pack ~ Chalk it Up paper pack ~ CTMH ~ catscrapbooking.comI used Colonial White ink on the Black cardstock ~ I love the way it looks like a chalkboard!! I stamped the arrows the same way.

Life is Wonderful right ~ July SOTM ~ Jackson paper pack ~ Chalk it Up paper pack ~ CTMH ~ catscrapbooking.comThe scalloped border was crated using a border punch I have in my collection.

Life is Wonderful left ~ July SOTM ~ Jackson paper pack ~ Chalk it Up paper pack ~ CTMH ~ catscrapbooking.comHer is the entire list of items used for this layout.
