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.
