Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

You've arrived here from Alyson's blog, so you're on the right path. If you get lost or wish to start at the beginning of the hop visit  Melinda's blog for the completely list of consultants participating this month.  Or you can keep on hopping and you will see all the artwork, since the hop is one big circle. Now it's time to see my page! 

But First I need to give you a heads up on the stamp set we're using.  The stamp is a New Years set aptly named Cheers.  Here's an image of the set, and it can be yours for just $5 with a qualifying purchase of $50 a savings of $12.95.  

I struggled with this set.  I can see a use for the journal lines in pocket scrapbooking, scrapbooking, in your planners, or mixed media journals.  I love the Dream Big and Cheers sentiments, but I've struggled with this concept of New Years, which I believe stems from my families lack of celebrating New Years.   Plus I don't see what the thrill is honestly its just a date change that takes all of us months to remember to write 2016 instead of 2015.  

I thought I'd try to make a pop-up box card.  I've never tried to make one before and I went with a 21st Birthday theme.  I saw stamps in the set that worked for a Birthday. I used our Fall color inspired paper pack.  

Here's the box open.  The pictures are still slightly dark, and I did watch the Walking Dead last night yet no info on Glen.  Okay I digress...Its still raining and dark in the house.  I usually take pictures outside in the garden.  I hope you see the details better and the way I went with the set.
  The list of the products I used are below.

  • Cardstock:  Poppy
  • B&T Paper:  Sangria Paper Pack
  • Exclusive Inks:  Cocoa, Poppy, & Saffron.
  • Embellishments:  Fundamental Assortment Gold, & Sangria Compliments
  • Adhesive:  Thin 3-D Foam Tape & Other
  • Stamp sets:  Cheers (S1511) & For Family Occasions (C1633)

I appreciate your time viewing my creation for this hop.  Now it's time to move on to Maureen's blog to see her artwork.  Thank You for viewing the Hop, and make sure to check out our Spotlight hop on November 6th.   

Create from the Heart,

  3. Priscilla, I hear you re the difficulty with this stamp set - I also found it difficult to work with. I think you did a great job with it and I love your box card!
