Dec 2012 CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Stamp of the Month blog hop.  This month we are featuring S1212 Year Round Cheer (set of 12).  Whether you're starting here, or you hopped over from Tamra's Blog, you're right on track.  Just follow the links at the end of the posts and you'll be able to see all the fun creations.


First let me say that... I love, love, love this set!  While it says it is a "set of 12", it can really be a set of 24 or more.  One of the fabulous things about clear stamps and clear blocks is that you can easily "pick and omit." That means you can ink up a portion of the stamp and just stamp that....or... I know this might give some of you a heart attack but you can.... cut your stamps!!!  Carefully cut the sayings off and you now have two separate stamps.  Tip: If it's hard to get your scissors between the two elements GENTLY stretch the stamp and spread the area out and then cut with the very tip of your scissors.

Please note - no stamps were harmed in my samples.  So far I have not cut mine apart but it's just a matter of time.  I'm pretty sure the bbq, sing in the rain and stay lucky might not be so lucky. LOL

I featured the card and envelope featured on the "2" key on the Artiste Cartridge


Inspired by my buddy Sandra, I turned the envelope into a little treat pocket.


I inked only the little heart to create my random stamped background on the card.

Supplies Used:

  • Cardstock - Blush, Black and Ruby
  • Ink - Ruby
  • Marker - Blush
  • Black sharpie marker for the doodling


I hope you enjoyed the first little peek at this set.  I have several more projects in the pipeline so check back throughout the month!!  This is just the beginning.


Now it's time to hop on over to Jill's Blog to see what she came up with.

Great idea with the single heart for a back ground pattern.....I also cut all my stamps and no damage was done to any of them :)
