Welcome to our monthly Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! On the 15th of each month we will be showcasing the current SOTM set with various projects created by talented Close to my Heart consultants. If you are visiting from Kindred Hearts, Then you are on the right track, if not please start at the beginning with our hostess Pam! Pam’s Blog Link
The possibilities are endless with this August set! Create borders, backgrounds and so much more!
This is my creation!
When I saw this stamp set(S1208 Baroque Borders), I decided that I did not like it! I could not see how I was going to use it in my style of card making and scrapbooking.
Well, as I started to see people use this stamp set, the more I liked it!!
I decided a couple days ago to do this blog hop. I kept looking in the papers from this catalog and decided to make a card for my son’s 2nd grade teacher for the first day of school. That is today!! I also used the MOJO Monday sketch.
I used Champange and Cashmere to stamp the background paper. I used 2 different stamp from this set. I used the Scholastic paper pack. Then i used a 3rd stamp from the stamp of the month to stamp the sentiment cardstock. I added Outdoor Denim ribbon to the card to give it a little dimension. The “Back to School” is from the stamp set called School is Here.
I love how this turned out. I hope the teacher likes it as much.
This card is one that I made last week that I thought I would include here too. I saw a similar card done by another Close to My Heart consultant. This is one of the things that made me love this stamp!! I stamped in Slate and inked a Paper flower and butterfly. I used a bling brad in the middle of the flower. The Sympathy statement is from the stamp set Words Of Comfort.
I think this makes a beautiful sympathy card!!
If you are intersted in this stamp set, you can buy it for $17.95 or get it for ONLY $5 with a $50 purchase!! You can find it here.
