Ah.... Amore! in December

December's Stamp of the Month is all about AMORE!  I know it is too early to be thinking about Valentine's Day already but if you plan to make some cards for February 14 you need to get your stamp this month!

I had so much fun playing with this stampset.  I stepped away from the pink and red traditional valentine colors and reached for one of my favorite paper packs of this season - Magnifique and the colors of Pacifica, Chocolate and Lagoon.
I'm so excited to share my cards with you!  I made 3 different cards but I will share 2 today and a 3rd on Friday. So you'll have to come back and see my FAVORITE card of the three.



This is a 8 x 3 1/2 card pattern from Originals.   The pattern is called Vertical Three but I changed it up a bit and made it a "Horizontal Three".   My card is accented with the Opaque Pearls Adhesive Gems (LOVE these gems!)   I stamped the heart two times with Pacifica ink using 2nd generation stamping and punched out a circle from each.   Then I stamped the smaller hearts with Pacifica ink.


This second card is from Originals - Package Deal.  This pattern is for a 6x6 card but I made it just a bit smaller using a 5x5 portion size.   I used 2nd generation stamping with Lagoon ink in the small white square using the bottom portion of the heart of vines stamp.  To add a little bling I used our Clear Sparkles.
