January Stamp of the Month Card #1

Happy Sabbath crafty friends!
Wow, already January 3rd, 2015! Time is flying by for sure. Today I want to share a card I created with this month’s Stamp of the Month.

Super fun stamp set that you can pick up for only $5 with a  qualifying purchase of $50 or more…OR you can go ahead and purchase it at regular price too! So here is what I came up with for today.
Here’s a look at my completed card. It is an A2: 4.25 x 5.5 finished size. I created the whole card base to fit the various stamps in this set. The patterned purple and black diagonally striped paper is from the Scaredy Cat paper collections.  I used my White Daisy Ink Pad to stamp the sentiment on black cardstock and used my EK Success mini flourish punch to add the flourishes to the purple flower embellishment. I then finished off the main sentiment area with a couple of silver sequins.
Here is the Cut file bundle I created that coordinates with this Stamp set. It includes two card bases that fit the various stamps from this set as well as individual cuts for the various stamps themselves. This cut file set is FREE if you make any size purchase through my CTMH link during the month of January! If you are a CTMH consultant and are interested in the file set for your own CTMH business, then email me and I will share with you how you can get this file set. (Melinda @ scrapbookeden dot com).

Here’s a closer look at the flower embellishment I used. You can also see where I inked the edges of the sentiment white mat with my Lagoon Ink pad.  I also used my Gypsy Ink Pad to ink the edges of the bottom layer of the heart. It was cut with white cardstock. The top heart cut was also cut with white cardstock and then I used my Lagoon Ink Pad to stamp the heart-love this sentiment.

Here’s a closer look at the xoxo border. I stamped the xoxo with my white daisy ink pad onto some black cardstock. I created the border to fit this stamp so that I could stamp it out twice and leave a small space in the middle for the heart. The outer wavy border mat was cut in white cardstock and then I inked the edges of that with my Lagoon Ink pad.
