Welcome to Stamp N Plus
Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!

If Cindy Groh sent you over for a visit, then you are exactly where you are meant to be. If you just happen to be visiting, then you should head over to Stamp N Plus for the beginning of this fabulous hop!

For this card, the Dreamer stamp was used.  I took white card stock and stamped the image with black VersaFine.  I then cut out around the Dreamer and cut apart the phrase.  Using color pencils, I colored the dress a mustard yellow and added darker highlights using the same colored pencil.  After that, I took some holographic Christmas tinsel in gold and silver and attached them to the end of the wand to give it some texture and sparkle.  Finally I added patterned star paper, along with holographic jewels, to finish off the background and adhered the Dreamer and the phrase.

I hope you enjoyed my card. As I am the last blog on the hop, I would like to thank everyone for visiting and I hope you have enjoyed all the creative creations from our wonderful Stamp N Plus Scrap N Design Team.

I made this card using the SNPSN watermelon and You're One in a Melon stamps.  I used pink cardstock and randomly stamped the watermelon image with a black Versafine ink pad, stamping additional images to later be cut out and popped up. I colored all the watermelon rind portion of the images with a green marker and cut out 6 of the watermelon slices.  After cutting out the slices, I adhered brown teardrop embellishments for the seeds and popped the slices up. I used the SNPSN Gem chalk and applied it to white cardstock with a cotton ball and used it as the first matte layer on the card.  Finally I stamped the You're One in a Melon phrase with a VersaMark pad, used the Gem chalk and rubbed it over the saying with a cotton ball until the saying appeared.

Welcome to the Stamp N Plus Scrap N Anything Goes Challenge.  With this card I used one of the cats from Patty's Kids.  I colored the image with color pencils, cut it out and layered it on black paper and then on coral paper.  I cut the  first matte out of pattered kitty paper and adhered it to a brown card.  I placed the image in the left corner.  I stamped "Happy Birthday" on white cardstock, cut it out and layered it on black cardstock and popped it up on the kitty paper.  I finished it off with a flower with a brown brad in the middle.

This is a unique stamp from SNPSN.  It is one stamp that looks like a hag one direction and when flipped around it is a princess.  This is the same card, just with the picture rotated using the brad to change the direction and sentiment. I don't know that this is on the SNPSN website, but if you are interested in purchasing this stamp, you can contact SNPSN.
