CTMH: December SOTM Blog Hop

posted in: Cards | 8

Happy December!  It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  We had our first dusting of snow this morning and it looks beautiful.  We’re here for another Stamp-of-the-Month blog hop.  If you came from Dawn’s blog, you’re on the right path.  If you’re starting here, just keep clicking the links in each post until you get back here and you’ll have seen all the inspiration we have prepared.

This month’s stamp set will get your thoughts away from Christmas and on to Valentine’s Day.  It’s full of lovely images and sentiments.

You’ll see that 4 of the images are compatible with the Art Philosophy cartridge as well.  So fun!  I decided to go really simple with my cards, just stamping directly on the card base.  The hearts in this set are perfect for standing alone and I’m really in a simple kick since planning workshop cards.  My own Christmas cards are going to be super simple, too.  Here are my cards:
This first one is a 3×6 card.  I used Tulip ink and the lighter one is second generation.  The sentiment comes from For Every Occasion.
This card uses Cotton Candy ink and I double-stamped the image.  The sentiment is from Pair-a-Phrase and is masked to get just that one word.  I added a line with my Legacy Writer pen.

This last card is also done with Tulip.  The sentiment is from Say It In Style.  What do you think about the line around the outside?  I’m not sure I like it.  Do you think I should add it to the first card or leave it as is?  
I have to thank my upline, Sheri Ballantyne, for help with the designs of these cards.
Now it’s time to hop on over to Georgia’s blog and check out the fabulous artwork she made.  Don’t forget that this stamp set is only available for the month of December.
Happy Creating!

    I love the line on your card! These cards are simple and beautiful – just the way I like them. I may have to case some of these 🙂
