May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  I hope you have enjoyed the artwork so far. There are over 60 consultants participating in this hop.  If you have come from Donna's Blog, then you are on the right path.  To see the complete list, click HERE.

This month we are featuring the May Stamp of the Month, Just Sayin' (S1505).  A set of 14 stamps with shapes and sayings.

I made this standard sized card using the card pattern found on page 43 of the Make It From Your Heart Vol. 2 .  I also used new products from the 2nd Seasonal Expressions:  Jackson Paper Pack (X7195B) and Glacier Extra Thick Twine (Z3039).  And old favorites: Cocoa and Desert Sand Cardstock and Cocoa Ink.

This stampset is also a great asset for scrapbooking.  Now head on over to Darlys Recker's blog to see her creations.  Thanks for stopping by.

Does this make you dream of the beach, or spending time at the lake?  I for one can't wait for summer.  School is out, flip flops all day, spending a lazy day with the kiddos.  Heaven!

This card was created using the Seaside Paper Pack, Desert Sand Cardstock, Glacier Ink and
Brown Baker's Twine.  The stamp set is Beach Gear (A1164)  A set of 4 stamps all about summer. The fourth stamp is a sun, so all the fun is covered.

Dreaming for summer......

Happy to be Friends

Made this little card the other day using the Brushed Paper Pack and Happy to be Friends (C1605).  This is such a springy paper pack:  pinks, yellows and greens.  Of course I had to add a little shine with the Pink Shimmer Trim.  The pink and yellow flowers are cut out and added on top of the green leaves.

Enjoy the April Showers
