December SOTM Blog Hop!!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Cute Pie S1412

If you just arrived here from MICHELLE's BLOG
then you are on the correct path.

 This month I created this
5x7 Circle Spin Card (left)
and this standard-size card (right)
featuring our NEW Heartstrings paper packet
(X7193B) that is available for purchase
starting December 1st!

 Here's a view of the Circle Spin Card (Z1866) that shows
how the center circle piece spins when opened.
I used a 2" scalloped circle punch to cut the circle of
White Daisy cardstock that the cupcake image is stamped on.
(then sponge daubed it's edges with Slate ink 
before adhering it to the card base/spinning circle).

 Here's a view of the front of the card with inside of the Circle spun around
to the front to show you what I stamped on the other side of it.

Here's a closer view of the standard-size card (above).
The ShinHan Touch Twin marker colors I used are Cherry Pink,
Peacock Green, Turquoise Blue, Warm Grey 4, and Warm Grey 7.
The letters "U" and "R" come from a separate stamp set:
A Typeface (A1117) that is shown on page 135 of Annual Inspirations.

 Here's a quick tip:  To make it easier to curve this stamp
and stamp the image curved like I have done, I used my 
micro-tip scissors to cut the stamp apart
(just in between each of the frames, 
leaving the string at the top intact).

Finally, here is a view of what all of the images in this super "cute" stamp set look like:

Now you can continue on with the hop

Great idea to use a Spinner card, and really like the banner on your second card.

Morgan Vogt said...

Beautiful cards! I especially love the banner.

Those sequins really make the cards pop! I am scared to cut up my stamps but I can see that this would make it easier to use that banner.
