Today I would like to share with you my two projects which features the Twinkle – October 2015 Stamp of the Month available exclusively throughout October for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75.
This is a predominantly Christmassy stamp set but I wanted to show how versatile it is, the stars and lights really stood out to me so I decided to make a party page.
Using the squiggle I straightened it out on the 2" X 6 1/2" My Acrylix® Block
and stamped it twice on the top of my 12" X 12" White Daisy Cardstock with Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad.
I really think this looks like party lights so I used all my fingers to space the lights evenly. I started with the Gypsy Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and then the other colours... Lagoon Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and Cotton Candy Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad.
When I was finished the stamping of the Party lights, then I decided that the lights needed to be yellow. So I added ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Golden Yellow Marker and coloured in the empty lights. I was really happy with the result.
I added the twinkle stamp in Gypsy Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and then decided I needed to finish off the page with some coloured card for photo mats.
I put in some photo mats in the three main colours as well. I made the mats half an inch larger than the three photo sizes. I used the 12" X 12" Cotton Candy Cardstock, 12" X 12" Lagoon Cardstock and 12" X 12" Gypsy Cardstock. I laid out all the paper and then I checked the space at the bottom to see how large the bottom title needed to be. I fitted the 2" X 3 1/2" My Acrylix® Block in the space so I knew how big to put the title.
I used my new favourite Alphabet called Hopscotch Alphabet to put the word PARTY onto the 2" X 3 1/2" My Acrylix® Block and I put it randomly on angles to make it more party atmosphere.
Then to stick with the Christmas Theme I decided to make a quick Christmas card also.
I started by cutting the cricut shapes, 24 fit on my mat without using Cricut Craftroom. *Note: If I had used Cricut Craftroom I could have fit heaps more on my 12" X 12" White Daisy Cardstock page.
I printed the outside on the Cricut shape with Topiary Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and then the Merry Everything in Cranberry Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad.
Next I cut a piece of 12" X 12" Black Cardstock and then I embossed it with my Big Shot and Confetti Embossing Folder. Then I sanded the confetti with the Sanding Kit.To finish off my card, I put Red Shimmer Trim because everything needs BLING!! This card is going to be added to my Card Buffet classes in October.
Remember this great stamp set Twinkle – October 2015 Stamp of the Month is only available throughout October from your Close to My Heart Consultant.
