Jan 2011 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome!  and Happy New Year!  Hard to believe isn't it... a whole new year.

Let's get it started off with a brand new Stamp of the Month... and a great one at that!!

The January stamp of the month is called Find Your Style and it is seriously one of my favorites in a long time.  So- If you've come from Dawn's Blog you are headed in the right direction... but if you're just joining in... no worries!  Keep hopping through by using the link a tthe bottom and you'll hop around the circle and end back here!

First up... the stamps themselves:

Did I not tell you they were super cute!

I've seen a LOT of spectacular artwork with this set... and really I just wanted to copy them.  But since I'm supposed to come up with original artwork for this post... I decided not to go the card or layout route.  I went to my super big stash of "stuff" and found this picture frame.  I sprayed the frame with shallac but left it neutral in color so that my Sweet Leaf sparkles would show up fairly well on the frame itself.  I used the Wings Level 2 paper pack available to customers January 1st.  The sentiment and butterfly were both stamped using Vineyard Berry ink.




well- hope you like this little project I whipped up for this month...

now go check out Dawn Heuft's blog to see what she cooked up!
