November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - It's the Little Things

Welcome to our November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! 

We will be featuring November's SOTM, It's the Little Things.  If you have come here from  Haley's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost, click HERE to find the complete blog hop list!

When I saw this group of stamps I thought how fun it would be to random stamp an entire sheet and then cut a gift ensemble from it!


I used analogous color families like blues and greens, yellows and oranges, and purples and pinks to layer inks while keeping them from looking muddy.

To give things a bit of sparkle I added dots from our Silver Metallic Marker on all the tiny orange flowers and the centers of the purple and pink flowers before cutting with my Cricut.


Our thin Thistle Diagonal Striped Ribbon was perfect to tie up the gift card holder and add the tag to the bag.  I did use a small velcro dot on the bag to keep it closed as well.


Here is the Explore Design Space file for this ensemble.  It uses one 12x12 random stamped or patterned paper and one 8.5x11" sheet of white cardstock.   



Here is the list of colors and stamping order I used:
Purple Flower:  Thistle and Gypsy
Pink Flower:  Pixie and Thistle
Yellow Flower:  Canary and Goldrush

To purchase the SOTM for just $5 with $50 purchase or any of the other items needed to make this project, visit my shopping site!



Now hop on over to Jilena's Blog here and see what she has created!

Just amazing. I love the matching set. As soon as I seen the first glimpse of the bag, I knew you had random stamped a whole sheet to do this project. Great job.

Ann -

The white Cardstock is the pink layer in the DS file. It cuts the base for the gift card holder and a backer for the gift tag.
