December Stamp of the Month - Candy Cane Alphabet




Welcome to the December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month's stamp is Candy Cane Alphabet. This is a fun holiday stamp set for creating titles and more!! If you came from Darly Recker's Blog you are on the right track! The hop is one big circle so when you get back to me you will know you have completed the hop! If you get lost along the way, you can see the entire list of participants HERE.


I created this one page layout with our Oh What Fun paper pack.  When I had the pieces all laid out to glue on I felt that the white background for the base page was just too plain.  The border across the top of the page was so busy, so I wanted my base page to have a subtle print. So, I got venturous and pulled out my Transparent Gloss Texture Paste.  I added several drops of Sugarplum Shimmer brush to get that nice pink color.  I created a template of assorted trees from the Artbooking and You are Here cricut cartridge.  I thought it was kind of cool that they were similar in shape to the trees in the paper.


Here is the stencil I created with the trees.


And a close up view of the finished base page.  I love the shiny look of the Transparent Gloss Texture Paste.  It gave just the right amount of background that I was looking for.


To get the Scalloped edge for my title, I used the Thin Cut-Decorative Border across the White Daisy Cardstock.  Then I stamped the title with the Candy Cane Alphabet in Pomegranate ink.

The candy canes are from the hot chocolate image on the Seasons of Joy cricut cartridge.  I sliced them off so that I could use the candy canes without the cup. (I LOVE Design Space for this ability!) The house is from You Are Here. For the base of the house, I used paper from our Seasons Mix-ins paper pack.

The card I'm sharing today was created from my leftover supplies from the workshop bundle.  I used the same basic design as the 2nd card show above.   For my card I stamped the manger scene with VersaMark ink and used Silver Embossing powder.   I stamped "Blessings" in Peacock ink.

November Stamp of the Month - Seasonal Trees



Welcome to the November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month's stamp is Seasonal Trees. This stamp set has 23 images with a tree for every season!! If you came from Darly Recker's Blog you are on the right track! The hop is one big circle so when you get back to me you will know you have completed the hop! If you get lost along the way, you can see the entire list of participants HERE.


Because fall is in the air right now (finally!) I wanted to create a tree with changing colors of leaves!  To get the different colors, I used sponge daubers to daub on colors of Saffron, Goldrush, Fern and New England Ivy.  I stamped the birdhouse in Glacier - first directly on my cardstock and then again on another piece and cut it out.  I also cut out the bird after stamping it with pomegranate ink.  My card features the papers of Grateful Heart and Seasons Mix-ins!  Can you find the Seasons Mix-in paper?  I used the Decorative Borders - Thin Cuts on the Seasons Mix In paper and the Stitched Borders stamp set along the edge of the Grateful Heart paper!  The stamped "THANK YOU" is from Just a Little Something stamp set.




With the holiday's just around the corner, I had to create a Christmas card! This time used 'Tis the Season paper pack.  I stamped the tree and the leaves and then used the tiny little ornament to stamp Chrstimas balls on the tree.  I used my red Shimmer Brush on top of each ball.  The "Happy Holidays" stamps is from the Just A Little Something stamp set.
