Stamp of the Month blog hop: Through the Year

This stamp set is a bit unusual for our regular card makers but brings out the creative challenge!  I can't wait to see what people do!

Get ready for a fun run through inspiration alley!  If you have arrived here from Emily's blog, you are one your way through a big circle of creative artwork by several consultants.  After you have visited my blog, you will travel on to Tracie's blog.

Through the year stamp set includes the 12 months of the year spelled out in a script font and then 16 icons that represent different themes and seasons of the year.  If you enjoy planners or making your own calendar, this set is a staple for your collection. 
But, if you are also a card maker, these icons add perfect images for your greetings.

Here, I used the small sunshine icon and stamped in Goldrush and Tangerine alternately to create a greeting.  I colored white dots with the Shin Han marker to create an embellishment to add dimension.  I used the "Jennifer's Hand" alphabet to stamp the sentiment.  (Tip:  I have two of these alphabet sets because they are inexpensive and I always need more than just one of the letters to complete my thought.  I put both sets in one envelope so they are always together.)

Sticking with a weather theme, I created this card using the raindrops.  The clouds and the umbrella are cut from the Artistry Cricut cartridge.  The sentiment is from the "Stronger Together" stamp set.

Although I don't have a photo of this, I purchased a large desk calender that was blank and I loved using the month stamps to label each month with a pretty font, instead of my handwriting.


This stamp set is also used the December special, Through the Year Calendar.  You will be able to purchase it with a kit in December OR save yourself some money and purchase it this month for $5 with a $50 order.  Then in December, you can order the kit without the stamp set and again save on your purchase.  These calendars are great gifts as well as ways to share your memories through out the year.

Thank you for stopping by.  You will be able to order this stamp set from your CTMH consultant through the month of November or from my website here.  The calendar will be available in December so watch for news from your consultant.

Now remember to continue your hop through the blogs by moving on to see what Tracie has created.
