CTMH November Stamp of the Month

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month we have almost 70 participants in the blog hop!   We will be featuring November’s SOTM, which is Capture the Date, a 72 stamp set that has many options for date stamping!   This stamp set is available for $5 with any $50 purchase!  If you have come here from Jill’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 along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

I decided to modify some ideas I’ve seen on Pinterest and use this stamp set to do it.  The black printing is just from the computer printed onto a cut down sheet from Dotty for You.  Sorry the pic is not the clearest – I had to use my phone :(

I used the stamp set to create the dates on each strip of white textured cardstock.  I went for the disjointed look by using different numbers from the set for the day and the year and not worrying too much if it was a little off center.  I think that’s what gives it character.

Now hop on over to Pamela’s blog to see what amazing creations she has!

Christmas Gift Card Holder

My husband has recently taken up smoking these little cigars.  They come in a cute little box.  So I told him to save me the boxes and while I was working on some Christmas cards this past weekend I decided to turn one into a gift card holder!

I used the scrap papers and stamp set from the Pear & Partridge Card Workshop on the go Kit!

This is the box before:

And here it is when I was done embellishing it!
