National Stamping Month Blog Hop

CTMH has designed three really cool stamp sets for National Stamping Month (which some parts of the world know as September)!  Join my blog hop group to see some fabulous ideas for using the Hello Life (#ctmhHelloLife) fun stamps.  (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Michelle's blog.  From here, you'll visit Terrie's blog next.)

It's probably no surprise that my favorite is the Scrapbooking set of the Hello Life collections! (The 3 sets are $13.95 each or all three for $34.95; they all coordinate with the new CTMH/Cricut Artistry cartridge.)

For both my projects, I chose to use the scrapbooking set on cards.  I grabbed my Zoe paper pack with Canary, Glacier, Sorbet, Sweet Leaf, and Slate inks along with my blending pen.  I think the first card has more of a "clean and simple" feel to it.

The second is based on the new Viva La Verve sketch September 2015 Week 1 challenge sketch challenge.  I started by random stamping the solid flower in Canary, Glacier, and Sorbet, followed by the outline flower in the same colors.  I used Canary for all the flower centers and then Sweet Leaf for the leaves.  My sentiment and camera were stamped in Slate, then I colored the camera with my blending pen and Slate, Whisper, and Sweet Leaf.  Embellishments include the Zoe Assortment, green and coral shimmer trim, and a Grey enamel gem.  Here is the sketch:

  1. You used my favorite stamp in the set, the camera. Isn't it cute? I cannot decide which of your cards I like the most. Great job.

  2. More super cute cards with these stamps! I like both

  3. I love how you created dimension on the camera.

  4. Love the way you used two strips of shimmer trim to create the pennant!

  5. I can't get enough of the cameras! Great cards!

  6. I didn't think I'd use that camera stamp but you inspire me, as always. I love the way you used it on these cards.

  7. Such a fun card! Love that little camera image. Thanks for playing along with Viva la Verve!
