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

Welcome to StampNPlus Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This is the first stop on the hop for today.  If you just happen to be visiting, then you should head over to Stamp N Plus  for the beginning of this fabulous hop!

This stamp is from the Sarah Scribble's line of stamps from Stamp N Plus.  The girl w/pumpkin image is I-SEA013.

I stamped the image on white card stock, colored it with permanent alcohol markers, added yellow Stickles to the wings and cut out the image.  The matte layer is yellow card stock and I took an orange piece of card stock and punched out the pattern on each side.  Once I had the orange paper punched, I took a piece of white cardstock, used a punch on the corners and added metallic red thread to the top and bottom.

 Finally I stamped the phrase and layered everything until the card was complete.

This stamp is from the Sarah Scribble's line of stamps from Stamp N Plus. The girl w/balloons image is J-SEA011.

For this card, I took a pink sheet of card stock and used an embossing folder for the matte layer.  Then, I took a rectangle piece of chipboard and covered it with pink paper covered in white dots. 

I stamped the image on white cardstock, then stamped the balloon part of the stamp three more times, stamped Happy Birthday on a separate piece of white cardstock, colored everything with permanent alcohol markers and cut them all out. 

When everything was cut out, I adhered the chipboard to the card, and layered the balloons to make a bigger bouquet, took one of the bunches of balloons and put it behind the phrase and, as a final touch, added yellow Stickles to the flame of the candle.

I hope you enjoyed my cards.  Now it's time to visit Beverly's blog.....head on over and have a look at her wonderful creations!!!

       Stamp N Plus Scrap N August Challenge -- Flowers

This card was made using SNPSN flower stamp L583.  Randomly stamped the flower image on glossy paper using Versamark Dazzle - Champagne, then brayered on Adirondack ink (Rueberry, I believe) for the resist effect.  I stamped the image on white card stock three times, colored them with colored pencils and layered it on burgundy cardstock.  I added the bling to the centers of the flowers, added some multi-colored DMC-type floss at the top and bottom of the burgundy cardstock and then adhered it to my card.
