December Stamp of the Month BLOG HOP!!

  • Thanks for stopping by again to see my contribution to our December SOTM Blog Hop featuring our Notice the Details stamp set (D1378). I've created a simple 6x6 scrapbook page and a few cards. At first I wasn't sure how I would utilize this stamp set to make cards, but once I got going it was hard to stop - lol! All of my artwork uses the Twitterpated paper pack (X7118B) and features the following exclusive CTMH colors - Chocolate, Colonial White, Crystal Blue, Desert Sand, Sorbet, and Sweet Leaf.
  • The 6x6 scrapbook layout was inspired by Reflections - Bottom Border-Overlap (p. 34). The 3x3 card design was inspired by Originals - Center Focus (p. 111). The 2.5x3.5" card was inspired by Originals - Double Duty (p. 113). Finally, the 4.5" circle card was inspired by Wishes - Attention Getter (p. 46). I used Desert Sand ink with a sponge dauber to add the ink distressing to my cards and also used Black Staz-on ink to stamp the stars on two Chocolate bigger brads - so fun and easy to do!
Now HOP on over to TRACI'S BLOG to continue on and see more beautiful artwork using this fantastically fun "detailed" stamp set!
