Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop!

Once again we are bouncing with the new Stamp of the Month! Hopefully you just came from Cindy Leek's blog. If not, keep going and you'll loop around.
I loved this stamp set when I saw it but froze when it was time to make something with it! I incorporated several stamp sets to create this fun card. Hope you like it!

Using a Coluzzle File Folder template, I cut out a card in the shape of a file folder. I created the Checklist from Checklist Stamp Set. I still need to come up with more things to add to my lists. The Event list was made by Journaling Jots Stamp Set. The coffee stain complients of Coffee Stain Stamp Set. The file folder label and words are from Confidential Stamp Set.
The Today: card and the binder clips are from the Stamp of the Month as well as the date hash marks on the Today: card. I stamped the binder clips on the inside too.

Here inside is a picture of my baby and her first School Photo! The date stamp and numbers under her photo is from the Stamp of the Month as well as the 3 ring border. The lines are from Journaling Jots. I thought this would be a great way to send photos to the family.
The letters are The Works Alphabet Stamp Set. You can't tell by the photos, but I sponged chocolate ink around all the cards and the edges of the file folder giving it a distressed look. I also bent up the corners of the folder and the pealed back the label on the tab a little to distress it. I creased the corners and sponged in the folds to help age it.

I tried to make it like a busy file folder - let me know if it worked. Also, what to list on the front cards? Any suggestions?

Now jump on over to Shelia Bennett's blog to see what she created with this stamp set!

The Eisen Family Est. 1989

The ceiling fan/light and window across the room is showing up beautifully in my artwork, hope you can see beyond that. This is what I did last week for a craft fair. I cut out my last name Eisen in a dark brown wall vinyl and put it on a picture frame that I removed the back of. I then took gold vinyl and did THE EISEN FAMILY EST. 1989 and put that on top. We glued the glass to the frame so that it won't move. I love the fact that my wall color comes thru the class.
I wasn't sure about brown on gold, but it turned out great (hubby suggested the colors). The colors in the frame really go good too!
Planning on selling some of these for Christmas gifts this year!

November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!!

I've joined the blog hopping world! A bunch of us Consultants are doing a Blog Hop featuring the Stamp of the Month each month.
Hopefully you came here from Katy Donaldson's blog - if not you should check out her blog. To start from the beginning go to Jena DeVries' Blog . After my site you should go to Deb Young's Blog - I have it linked at the bottom of this post again.

Here is my sample card of what you can do with November's Stamp of the Month called Around the Block! (Sorry pictures might be a little fuzzy).

I stamped the shutters and then cut them out after I colored them with our markers. I put a strip of Desert Sand cardstock at the top and bottom of the card and then colored a piece of scalloped Dimensional Elements with Desert Sand ink and added it for the trim. The flower boxes are on with foam squares to give them depth. These windows have panes, but I cut the center out so you can see thru them.

The front door is colored with only one marker - bamboo. The more I go over the image the darker it gets - I love that about our markers! This stamp set has roofs, bricks and boards, clouds, 2 different window and door styles and much more - I can't wait to see what everyone did!

Can you see the coat tree in the window?!! That's from our Welcome Home Stamp Set! Love that one too!

Thanks for looking and keep hopping thru the blogs - please leave a message!

The next hop is over to Deb Young's blog!
