Hello Life - National Stamping Month Blog Hop


Welcome to this months special blog hop.


We should be coming from {Michelle Battitori}
Next in the blog hop is {Lori Brown}


This special for National Stamping month features 3 exclusive stamps. You can buy them for $13.95 each or buy all 3 for $34.95. They are only available during the month of September, so don't miss out.






Now each stamp set is featured for specific type; cardmaking, scrapbooking and pocket scrapbooking, but you do not have to follow that. They will work perfectly for any project you will have.

I have made 3 projects using the camera from the Scrapbooking set and from the matching project stamp sets.



I made some of my own background paper using the camera stamp. I also stole the brush mark stamp from the pocket scrapbooking set. Hello is from the cardmaking set. I stamped on vellum using the archival ink. This ink is being discontinued and being replaced with a even better ink for coloring with markers and watercolors. Can't wait.
Stamping on vellum can be pretty tricky since it is slick. I didn't get it perfect, but I really liked how it turned out. Goes more with the artistic background I made. I finally used my stapler again to adhere the vellum to the card.


My next project was using the camera stamp to make a pocket scrapbooking card. I used peacock ink to color the camera. I messed up when I colored this. It was supposed to be just a swipe of color with the brush, leaving white spots. But I goofed and it ended up coloring the whole camera. So I went over with just a swipe of the darker version of the same ink.
Can I say that I love this color? Pomegranate is great as well. I love almost all of the new colors. Was not sad to see any of the old colors go.
I used 2 Cricut cuts for this card. First was the camera (#M412279). I made my own notebook paper by cutting out image #M44A21 from Artbooking and had my Explore draw on the lines by turning the score line into a write line.


I know I said 3 projects. I started my scrapbooking layout using the camera and watercoloring, but I just started a job and haven't had time to finish it. It took 3 tries to get it to look how I wanted it to.


I hope you enjoyed this special blog hop for the special National Stamping Month. Please keep hopping to see more beautiful artwork. Next in this hop is {Lori Brown}
