A Little (more) Everything!

If you are a card-maker you MUST get this month's Stamp of the Month, A Little Everything! This stamp set has sentiments for just about any occasion and phrases that you can combine to say just what you need to say. If you haven't checked out the SOTM Blog Hop, click here or scroll down to see my post and then follow the hop through to get tons of great ideas!

As I hopped through the blogs this month, I was inspired to sit down and create MORE (Hmmm...didn't that happen to me last month too?). Each of the cards I'm sharing today were inspired by other consultants and then made my own with a few different touches. I can always count on my fellow CTMH consultants to give me the inspiration I need! Thank you!!

The first card, posted above, appeared in the Blog Hop using the new Veranda papers. I tried it with the Caboodle papers. I stamped and cut out an extra sorbet blossom and popped it up for a little added dimension. Sparkles in the middle of the flowers add just the finishing touch I was looking for. The flowers are found in one of my very favorite new stamp sets, One of a Kind (D1410).

This next card, an 8"x 3 1/2" design, is so simple - one of my favorite designs I go back to time and again! The word Happy is stamped using a technique I'll teach next month at my scrapbook workshops (see the dates over to the right and RSVP today!). I added a little random stamping using the This Way stamp set only available in the Caboodle Workshop Kit (shoot me an email for more details!).

This last card also uses the This Way stamp set. I LOVE that big arrow - so fun!

As I was teaching these cards to my fun card group, they commented on how versatile the Caboodle papers are. They are pretty and springy for a feminine touch, but everyone agreed the last two cards especially, could very well be given to a boy.

  1. Very nice cards. You did a great job with all of them. My favorite is the top one with the three cute flowers.
