Here is a look at this month's EXCLUSIVE stamp set!! 💗

I wasn't sure WHAT I'd create with this stamp set....but I decided just to go with something simple...and I ENJOY creating that's what I did!

Here is my card I designed using this stamp set.😍

Yes---it's BRIGHT and BOLD --and turned out aye ok. 
Take a peek at the beautiful Candy Apple & Sundance designer papers ---they are from our NEWEST Mix In Paper pack (X9026 Mar-Apr)😊

I wanted to create a background & so I pulled out our 5x7 Embossing Folder (Floral Lace) and ran a piece of Bluebird Cardstock through my CTMH Embossing machine.  The word "Thanks" was stamped with Lagoon ink, and the metal die was from our Waterfall Thin Cut set (z3777)!  I have been using this stitched banner so MUCH lately!!💗

To make the background of the card "stand out" a bit more --- I then took our Bluebird INK pad, and lightly ran the ink over top of the raised part of this embossed image! How FUN to create a more intense design, just by using ink! 😍🤩 

The Stitched Rectangle Thin Cut (metal die) was the PERFECT place to stamp my Lagoon flowers. 😉. This card just makes me smile because it's so BRIGHT & Happy!
My final touch was to glue on Blue Belle Sequins, some to the flower centers, and some sequins down near the "thanks" banner. 


I hope you are enjoying this blog hop & are getting a lot of creative inspiration for when you create with your OWN Stamp of the month stamp set.
