Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring March's Stamp of the Month, which is "A Little Everything," a set of 26 stamps.
If you have come here from Jody's Blog, you are on the right path! When you reach the end of my post you will continue hopping along from the link posted for you.
This month we have nearly 70 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's Stamp of the Month and other great Close to My Heart products on their blogs. Hopping along with us is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!
For my card creation, I used the cardmaker's how-to recipe book, "Wishes" cardmaking how-to program and followed the pattern called, Sundial. The how-to programs from Close to My Heart are such great time-savers for me. The programs really do make my projects come together: "Faster. Simpler. Easier."
Project Supplies: Stamps: D1408 A Little Everything, March's Stamp of the Month
B1341 Just Be You, the exclusive stamp set only available in the You Rock Workshop Kit Paper: You Rock Level 2 paper packet Cardstock: Goldrush CS, Indian Corn Blue CS, Olive CS, Smokey Plum CS, and White Daisy CS Inks: Goldrush, Outdoor Denim, Olive, and Smokey Plum Embellishments: Outdoor Denim Twill Ribbon and White Daisy Bigger Brads Tools: "Wishes" how-to book, Micro-Tip Scissors, Paper Piercer, Glue Dots, 3-D Foam Tape, and various circle punches
To play off the tie-dyed look of the fun You Rock papers, I used the stamp rolling technique to create the variegated color you see with my "Thanks" sentiment and in the spiro-graph looking stamp in the center circle.
To do this you ink up your stamp in your lightest ink color first then in the next color you want, moving from lightest to darkest. You roll just the portion of the stamp you want each specific color. I was really pleased with the results I got using this technique.
For the stars seen behind the Thanks sentiment, I used the second-generation stamping technique to add some fun stars like the ones you see in the pattern paper.
From this image below, you can see all of the 26 stamp images including in this stamp set. As you can see, there are lots of great uses for this set! I just used the "Celebrate" sentiment for the title of my layout I made over the weekend. So many occasions represented in one stamp set that you can earn at a discount or even FREE! Ask me how!
