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!!!

  1. Both of your cards are super CUTE, love how you stamped the balloons many times!

  2. The pumpkin girl is perfectly framed with the lacey orange punched borders. Love all the balloons on the second card---fun & festive!

  3. These cards are so fun. I love the punched border and thread detail on the first card. Both play off the image so well. Great idea to layer the balloons to make it a bigger bouquet. The Stickles are a clever detail on the flame.

  4. Cute cards!! LOVE the colors!!

  5. What darling Cards Julie!!

    Many Blessings,

  6. Like the cards. Blogger was having issues so I did not get to the hop in time.
