Cheers- CTMH November Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop


Hello and welcome aboard our Close To My Heart November 2015 Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Lauren Moore's CTMH Craftingsyou are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post

Today, I would like to share with you three cards I have made that feature the November Stamp of the Month, Cheers, 2016!. This stamp set is available only in November 2015 for $27, or for just $7.50 when you spend $75 or more. 



When I first saw the Cheers, 2016! stamp set in the Holiday Expressions Idea Book, I instantly thought of all of the page layouts on which I could use this stamp set.  It's going to be perfect for this year's New Year's Eve layouts no matter what we get up to.  But as I don't usually give cards for New Year's Eve (although I may have to start), I wasn't sure if this stamp set would get cardmakers excited.  Well colour me corrected!  

I chose just one of the stamps from the Cheers, 2106! stamp set and challenged myself to create cards using that stamp.  The stamp was the "Dream Big" stamp and I have used it on three fun card designs.  As you can see, these cards don't have anything to do with New Year's Eve, so this stamp set just became really versatile!! 


This card features Zoe and Georgie B&T Paper; Glacier and White Daisy Cardstock; Glacier Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad and CTMH Watercolour Pencils.  It also includes the cute giraffe stamp from the gorgeous new Operation Smile stamp set, Animal Greetings.


This 4" x 4" card features Zoe and and Georgie B&T Paper; Glacier, Pear, Slate and White Daisy Cardstock; Glacier and Pear Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad; Bitty Sparkles, Enamel & Glitter Duos- Green Triangles and CTMH Watercolour Pencils.  It also includes the cute puppy stamp from the Operation Smile stamp set, Animal Greetings

The two-toned sentiment was created by inking the stamp firstly in Glacier ink and then "rocking and rolling" the outside of the stamp in Pear ink. 


The final card features Georgie B&T Paper; Slate, Glacier and White Daisy Cardstock; Glacier and Slate Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad, Silver Sequins, Whisper Thick Twine and CTMH Watercolour PencilsIt also includes the cute elephant stamp from the Operation Smile stamp set, Animal Greetings

The two-toned sentiment was created by inking the stamp firstly in Glacier ink and then pressing the top and bottom of the sentiment onto the Slate stamp pad.
