This month, the set is called "True Friends." At first, I really struggled with what I was going to make. But, the more I looked at the set, the ideas began to flow. The set has so many possibilities. I really like the "frames." They are a nice shape and easy to cut out in order to add dimension to your projects.
The first item I made was this handy dandy candy jar (whew....I didn't intend to have 3 rhyming words). The jar was in a gift basket I won at a charity affair in the spring. After I used the pie filling that came in it, I decided to keep it to use later. Later came today.
The label was stamped on Vanilla Cream in Sweet Leaf and the sentiment in Crystal Blue. I used Twill Ribbon for the bow. The top of the jar was decorated with scalloped circles I cut with my Nestabilities. I used Sweet Leaf, Vanilla Cream and a small piece of B/T Duos from the Twitterpatted pack. The images are from "Connections." What a handy stamp set that is. If you haven't seen it, check it out. I have used it so many times for gift tags and altered binder clips.
Back to "True Friends"....Like I said, it is a very versatile stamp set. I used it for a card in this example that features the just released paper "You Rock."
The A2 sized card base is Outdoor Denim and the "You Rock" mat is 5 1/4 x 4 inches. The twist on this card is the strip of White Daisy CS that I brayered with Indian Corn Blue and Smokey Plum. The stars are from "Evergreen" and stamped in Outdoor Denim.
