I have seen so many fabulous cards being created with the first pattern in Make it from Your Heart Vol 4, so I knew it was time to give it a try.  Here is what I came up with….

I decided to use the Gimme Some Sugar paper pack with Bashful and Daisy White Cardstock. I stamped the word “kind” with Memento Ink and then use our watercolors to fill it in.  I used a combination of Bashful and Blossom inks.

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-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.
