CTMH May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to this month's Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Tracey Ray you are in the right place, if you happened upon this hop by accident no worries just continue on by following the link at the end of the post.

This month's stamp is  Just Sayin' S1505, it has 14 stamps with different shapes and and statements and you will find it can be used for a variety of layouts or if you are a card maker the possibilities are endless. You can have this stamp for just $5.00 with a $75.00 order during May, but at any other time it will cost you $27.00.



I've had lots of fun with this stamp set so far. I am showing four cards which were quite simple and easy to make. This first card uses the the square shape and the "This is Cool stamp. I used the retired Hopscotch paper pack and coordinating inks.The stamped squares were trimmed to 1" then double matted with Daisy White card stock and card stock to match the ink. I embossed the backing card stock with the Damask Embossing Folder Z1927 and for a finishing touch added Flaxen Extra Thick Twine Z3036 and 3 small pearls from my stash.



For this second card I used the banner stamp and created a pinwheel. A very simple card but I like how it turned out.


I think this card is my favourite, I used the triangle stamp to create the kites. I stamped the triangle twice and trimmed one to make the top of the kite, Bakers Twine was used to make the kite tails. The Enjoy the Moment stamp, a few clouds and some ribbon was all that was needed to complete the card.


My niece and her husband have just bought a new home and will be moving in soon. So I thought I would make a card congratulating them on their new home. Once again I used the square and triangle stamps. I trimmed them so they would look like little houses and added the little hearts.

 I hope you are enjoying this hop and getting lots of ideas, please  continue on to Patricia Manhire's blog to see what she has created. We do appreciate your comments and they encourage us to be more creative with the stamp sets.
