I've been busy participating in a Stamp-of-the-Month swap. I posted May's Be Yourself card a while ago. Since I now have both June and July sent off, I thought I'd let you see what you can do with these sets.
This card follows a pattern from the new Wishes card program. I think it's called Top Band. I used our new Bella papers and the June SOTM, Tender Tags. The tag is done with Desert Sand ink, second generation, and then edged with Smokey Plum. There's a pewter brad holding it in place.
This next card took a long time, but I stamped and did most of the cutting when I was staying at my mom and dad's while my hubby was in El Salvador last month. There was no housework to distract me so I was able to get quite a bit done. This is July's SOTM, called You've Got Flair. I used Animal Cookies Creative Basics and since I didn't have the right markers, paper pieced the coloured bits onto the stamped image. The little Sunflower flowers are popped. Then I used Liquid Glass to put a pattern on the back of our clear buttons and some waxy flax to thread them. That gorgeous ribbon also comes with the Creative Basics. This card is using the Log Cabin pattern in Originals.
So now that you've seen what these beautiful stamp sets can create, make sure you place an order with me during the appropriate month. That's the thing with Stamps-of-the-Month. You can only get them during a particular month. You can email or call me with your order or go directly to my website and order there. Just click here.
Don't forget about my May challenge. Scroll down the posts to see what it's all about.
