Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the Month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Doris Taylor’s blog Creative Inspirations, then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.
I apologise if this is a repeat post for you. I had accidentally pressed publish for my first draft and of course once that happens you can’t take it back, unfortunately. Gotta love technology sometimes!
Today I would like to share with you some cards which features the January SOTM This Moment which is available exclusively throughout January for $33 or for just $5 when you spend $75.
This stamp set would be perfect for wedding and Valentine Day layouts but I didn’t have any suitable photos so I made some cards instead using the Heartstrings papers as they were a good match with this stamp set. The Heartstrings papers are from the Seasonal Expressions catalogue which is available until the end of March. I have also kept the cards simple by sticking to the papers, stamps and coordinating cardstocks and inks.
For the first card I have matched up the Cranberry and Lagoon cardstocks with the patterned papers from the Heartstrings paper. For the target I have cut the outer two shapes with the Art Philosophy cartridge and then stamped the same image on scrap White Daisy cardstock – twice with Cranberry and once with Whisper ink. I then fussy cut out the circles and layered them on to create the striped effect. The arrow and the sentiment have been stamped and fussy cut out and placed on the card.
I was searching for some inspiration and went to the tried and true Make it From Your Heart Volume 1 and found pattern number 27. I have mixed the patterned paper with the script paper and later realised that I had the script the wrong way but I was looking at the flourishes! Anyway, I have stamped the images with a mix of Whisper and Cranberry ink and the main image has been matted with Cranberry and Whisper cardstock.
Finally here is a very quick and easy card utilising the gorgeous Heartstrings papers. I have place a matted trim of coordinating paper across in order to place the simple stamped Hello that has been matted on Cranberry cardstock and then finished with a bow from the retired Ariana Assortments.
Cardstock – Cranberry, White Daisy, Whisper, Lagoon
Paper – Heartstrings B&Ts
Inks – Cranberry, Whisper, Lagoon
Ariana Assortments (retired)
Cricut Cartridges – Art Philosophy
This Moment is only available until 31st January from your CTMH consultant here. I’d love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Anne Patterson’s Blog Mummy you made this?
