Today I’d like to showcase the November Stamp of the Month called “New Year’s Cheer.” Scroll down to see a photo of the stamp set. Of course this stamp has many images and sentiments that are just perfect for cards and layouts relating to New Year’s events. But I wanted to show you how this stamp is NOT just for New Year’s! Remember you can purchase this stamp set for only $5.00 with any $50.00 Close To My Heart purchase.
First I made a birthday card with Jeepers Creepers paper. I heat embossed some of the images with white embossing powder and added some white enamel stars. I think it makes quite a classy and colorful card for a special birthday greeting!
Next I made a wedding card with this same New Year’s Wishes Stamp of the Month. I used the gray side of the patterned paper in the Uptown Fundamentals collection. Adding a sentiment stamped in Slate ink, a strip of Whisper cardstock and the coordinating Slate polka dot ribbon created a surprisingly nice monochromatic color design for my card!
Finally, I made another birthday card with this same stamp set. I used Swan Lake paper, a Picture My Life style card from the Swan Lake paper pack and the banner stamps to create a festive birthday greeting.
I hope you can now look at the November Stamp of the Month and see that it is much more than just a New Year’s themed stamp! I actually thought of another way to use this stamp as I was writing this post–I’ll try to make it and share tomorrow!
Until then, thanks for stopping by and make it a wonderful day! Laurie
