October stamp of the month blog hop

Welcome to this months blog hop featuring the stamp Home for the Holidays.

 This blog hop is a circle, so keep hopping until you come back to were you have started.  If you have not started here, you should be coming from {Heather Schmuckal} blog.  Next in this hop is {Michele Rowley}.  

I wanted to show how this christmas stamp set can be used in other ways than christmas.  I am moving in November.  My hubby is army and is getting sent to Fort Hood, Texas.  So when I saw the house, I knew I wanted to do some sort of moving card.  I paper pieced the house to make it different colors.  At first I wanted to use the Home part of the stamp, but it just didn't feel right so I went to We Moved.

  I used this sketch for the card.

If you would like to get the materials to make your own projects, go to {nikkageers.ctmh.com}

Thank you for stopping by.  Next in the hop is {Michele Rowley}.

#30yearsofhappy blog hop

Welcome to this special blog hop, featuring #30daysofhappy stamp set.  It includes 30 mini images and can be yours for free when you purchase $30 worth of stamps.

You should be arriving from {Casandra Bennett} blog.  Next in this hop is {Gina Brandstetter}.  This is a circle hop so keep visiting blogs until you come back to where you started.  If you get lost along the way, you can find a complete list of blogs {here}.

This stamp set works perfectly for 3 x 3 cards and tags, but i wanted to show you that you can use it for regular size cards as well.  
This card features our newest color Glacier,  with Lagoon heart and silver sequins.  It is a small image but this design is so simple, it draws you attention straight to that image.  Without that small strip of white, the image would be lost.

I didn't want to do a 3 x 3 image, but this design did not work well on a standard size card.
I made a mask of the stamps so the images would not overlap.  This features two more of our newest ink colors, Pixie and Thistle.

I hope you enjoyed this artwork.  Now hop along to see what {Gina Brandstetter} has in store for you.
