Feb SOM A Happy Hello

The February Stamp of the Month (SOM)  “A Happy Hello” S1502 has 15 great shapes to create flowers and more.  It’s only available during February 2015.  It’s $17.95 or $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase.  I enjoy that you have options with this set.   It’s not so whimsical that it says “girls only”.   Some of the images are great to create your own background and texture paper.

Here is a card making flowers with the set.  I love the layers and how you can do this to make the flowers show dimension.  It’s nice to have a set like this to remind us Spring is around the corner!


1502-sotm-card wm

Here’s a card using the geometrical shapes to create a very different, fun card.  Using Cricut Artfully Set overlay and the shapes, you create a card that is very unique.  I love the layers in this card between the base, the overlay, and the pennant.  Adding the geometric shapes, sequins, and  the slate diagonal ribbon are the finishing touches!

More on Year Noted Paper Kit

I have really enjoyed playing with the delightful paper colors in the “Year<<Noted” paper kit.  I choose to get mine with the mini book.  Noted Mini Book 1 WM

The colors are soft yet bright – definitely hinting to Spring.  I made a Christmas present for my husband by using Studio J, Hopscotch Picture My Life (PML) (don’t you just love that the cards are sold without page protectors now!!), Hopscotch Compliments and Assortment.  I love the gold stickers in the kit (stars and pennant banner). Here’s another picture:Noted Mini 3 WMI used the stamp set from “Year<<Noted” to create a collage stamp to stamp the light blue paper which is the bottom layer.  It’s stamped in Desert Sand.  A great benefit of acrlix stamps and clear blocks is the ability to create your down stamps!   Monica from CTMH Home Office does this great video clip which adds more information about what’s in the Year<<Noted kit and thoughts on using it:

Be watching for more posts on what I did with Studio J and the PML cards in this project!!

Mojo Monday 368

Mojo Monday 368 posted up  and it’s another great sketch.  I had fun with it.  I’m in the process of creating several cards (15 to be exact) for a “Come and Play Card Buffet).  Mojo Monday’s have been a fantastic help in creating the cards.  Here’s their sketch:

mojo368My card is created with one of my favorite stamp sets featuring a Christmas Tree which I embossed with white embossing powder. 

CC1015 HW Card1 WMI took CTMH reinkers and the blending pen to create the watercolor effect.  Wipe of the white embossing to make it stand out.  I used up some retired Sparkle and Shine paper for the card.  You can make this card at one of my Come and Play Card Buffets (CPCB)!

For class, we’ll use a different Christmas Tree set.

Have a creatively blessed day!
