March SOTM Blog Hop!!

WELCOME to my blog and THANKS for joining us for our March Stamp of the Month BLOG HOP featuring the March SOTM - D1408 A Little Everything!! The first creation I have to share with you is a standard size card that features this versatile SOTM set as well as the X7110B Back Country papers and two additional stamp sets - B1309 Fun Times and D1283 Say It in Style (for the "with love" sentiment). Masculine cards are sometimes hard for me to feel inspired about designing, so I was really pleased to come up with this one - masculine and fun! You can also see a few more cards below that I created for the standing SOTM swap I host and participate in with a group of very creative consultants each month. All of my swap cards below are created using the X7122B You Rock papers.
I hope you enjoy them!


Finally, the card just above was created using my Spellbinder Nestabilities circles and scalloped circles to cut out the scalloped card base and circle of smokey plum B&T paper with my Cuttlebug (I just love these new tools I've started using more recently). I also used the "masking technique" to stamp my sentiment. I'm including a brief photo tutorial below so you can see exactly how I did it in case the masking techniqe is new to you. Masking is much simpler than it sounds and it sure does allow for some amazing possiblities when you are trying to get extra creative with your stamping!




Now you can HOP on over to KATHLEEN'S BLOG to see the
beautiful artwork she has to share with us next!
