January 2015 Stamp of the Month Hop

Happy New Year and welcome to our first hop of 2015!
If you've arrived from Dana Kessler's blog you're on the right path! Just keep clicking on the links to go to the next hop. 

Our January Stamp of the Month is called This Moment and has 12 images! I used quite a few in my project. This is a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" side fold card. I created the background with the "target" image. I put the stamp on the block image side DOWN. That gave me a solid circle and I used it to do 2nd generation circles in the background. Cool, eh! Another fun tip is what you see behind the card. It's one of our new Designer Creations Paper Bags. They make a perfect envelope for standard side cards! They come in 4 colors: Honey, Ruby, Slate and Lagoon.


Remember.... this stamp set is only available from Jan. 1-31, 2015!

  15. Great card and envelope. Funny, I just used the back of a stamp this week too. I flipped the heart in Cricut Design Space and used the back of the stamp to make a pair of hearts. :-)
