Happy December...and welcome to the December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from Adeline's blog, you are on the right track. If this is your first stop,thanks for joining us. Following along is simple...just click on the link at the bottom of each blog post to be directed to the next blog.

The December Stamp of the Month, Special Care (S1312) is a set of 6 stamps that remind me of those old-fashioned signs that are so popular right now. Four of the images coordinate with shapes found on the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

For this quick and simple card, I combined two of my favorite current trends...banners and the chalkboard look! I used the Laughing Lola papers and a touch of Silver Shimmer Trim - I just can't get enough of the Silver Shimmer Trim! The sentiment is stamped using the White Daisy pigment ink which provides a nice bold image against the black cardstock.

Time to hop along and see what Nikka has to share with us!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm sure this week finds all of you gathering with family and friends, reflecting on your many blessings, and giving thanks for each of them. Among the many things we are so very thankful for are the many wonderful teachers who have touched the lives of our children.  Today I wanted to share a quick and easy gift my son delivered to his middle school teachers today.

The My Creations Burlap Drawstring Bags and Muslin Drawstring bags are the perfect size to hold gift cards! I used the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to cut out simple circle tags and stamped the Happy Thanksgiving sentiment using the Holiday Tags stamp set. The leaves are from the Fall Harvest set and stamped in Autumn Terracotta and New England Ivy (using the Rock-n-Roll technique)! I added a little grosgrain ribbon and my gift bags were complete!

If you love to give gift cards for the holidays, be sure to check out the My Creations Burlap Drawstring Bags, the My Creations Muslin Drawstring Bags and the brand new Season's Tweetings Holiday gift bags (sold on their own or in an adorable kit complete with tags and stamp set)!

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

September SOTM Blog Hop: Poster Tidings

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. If you've arrived here from Susan Brooks' blog you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, following along is simple. Just click the link at the end of each post to be directed to the next blog in the loop. We have almost 60 consultants participating this month, so by the time you arrive back here (or to your original starting point) you will will filled with ideas and inspiration.

The September Stamp of the Month, Poster Tidings (S1309) is a set of 2 (large) stamps featuring the super trendy subway art typeset style. One stamp is perfect for Fall cards and scrapbook pages and the other highlights words and phrases with a Winter and Holiday theme. 

 While our temperatures are rising here, and we haven't even gotten into an autumn mood, I was ready to think about cooler days and the warmth of the holidays so I choose to create a card using the winter/holiday themed stamp. Of course it pair perfectly with the gorgeous Frosted paper packet. The soft muted colors of Frosted are beautiful on their own. but I added the Blush cardstock for the pop of color. There is also a little bit of our Huntington paper packet in there too - can you find it? It has taken me a while to step outside that box and mix different paper packets, but it is really easy to do and adds to much versatility to our amazing paper packets!


I love all the fun pennants and banners on artwork these days and this card just sort of came together when I sat down to create. Our 3-D Foam tape provides a little dimension to the card.


Time to hop along and see what Georgia has to share! Remember, the September SOTM is available through September only. Order yours today for $17.95 or just $5 with a $50 order. Head over to my website to order yours!

I am so, so excited about the Hostess Rewards stamp sets from CTMH.

And as if exclusive sets wasn't cool enough, they are each offered a a discounted price, so you are getting more bang for your buck when spending your Hostess Rewards!!!

Quite possibly my favorite set in the new Idea Book is a Hostess Reward set...The Party Is On (C1568). I LOVE the large graphic sentiments!! We created this card at my recent Idea Book Kick-Off Celebration. In addition to the The Party Is On stamp set, it features an overlay cut with the amazing new Cricut Artbooking cartridge and the Sarita papers.


I also love the chalkboard look that is so trendy right now and thought this stamp set was a perfect set to play with this technique! This card features the new Laughing Lola papers, Silver Shimmer Trim and a little Baker's Twine. The banner pieces were cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge.


Of course, I love adding a little dimension to everything these days, so the both of the banner pieces are popped up using 3-D Foam Tape.
