Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Potential (March 2012)

Welcome to the March 2012 Close To My Heart stamp of the month blog hop! "Potential" is a beautiful set of 8 stamps that are, well, full of potential! If you're already hopping along the blog hop, you should have arrived from Teresa Scrivens' blog. After viewing my creations, head next to Pamela O'Connor's blog by clicking on her name.
My cards may look somewhat familiar to you because they use the same papers from my recent card class! Aren't the cards pretty paired with Potential? The first card uses the lovely Pemberley paper pack.
Notice how I stamped the large flourish in Bamboo on the Colonial White strip near the top left. Can see the small flourish stamped on the wooden butterfly?

Next up is the large medallion paired with the Roxie paper pack. (The colors on this one really do match in real life!) Stamp rolling is one of my favorite techniques (in fact, I used it on all three cards!): ink up the image in Tulip and then roll the edges in black ink before stamping. I embellished the image with Licorice Opaques (self-adhesive pearls), a Just Blooms flower (peeking out from the raised image), and (retired) black ribbon.
My final card uses the Cruisin' paper pack and a White Daisy die-cut card base. The small medallion was inked up in Juniper and rolled in Black before stamping. Isn't the new Baker's Twine cool?
Before you head to Pamela's blog, you're invited to my scrap class on Sunday, 3/11, where will be using the March stamp of the month, Potential, to recreate the layout featured on the front of the current Idea Book and its companion page. (Contact me for more details!) Now, go see Pamela's lovely creation!
