The Seasonal Trees – November Stamp of the Month The  features three fab trees suitable throughout any season, be it summer, winter, spring or autumn.

They can be used for Christmas or to just create pretty scene. I loved this stamp set when I first saw it & have been looking forward to creating something with it to share with you all.Seasonal Trees - November Stamp of the Month www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

The first card I made is a Christmas Card where I used one of the tree leaves & the cute little bird house from the Seasonal Tree stamp set. I really love how this turned out with the sponging & stamping of the leaves in different greens peaking out of the large scallop that has been cut using the Decorative Borders Thin Cuts.

The next card I used the same leaves combined with the pine cones from the Wonder of the Season stamp set to create this Christmas themed image. Adding the Candy Apple Striped Ribbon & the Red Pearls helped finish this image off.

My final card I decided to actual feature one of the trees in full. The background that it is on is created with sage ink on an acrylic block with drops of gold shimmer pen & stamped onto cardstock. It was heat set & the tree stamped partially over the background. The leaves stamped in sage which appears darker as the background became lighter when it was mixed with the gold shimmer. I haven’t added a sentiment yet as I think I could use this card for Christmas or for someone’s birthday.

The Just Treats – September Stamp of the Month features a mix of Christmas & Halloween stamps. My favourite image is the striped border which is very versatile, I also like the mug which I think would be good if you are scrapbooking about the everyday activity of drinking tea or coffee.ust Treats Stamp of the Month www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

I decided to create a Christmas card, that allows me to get a head start on my Christmas Cards that I will send out this year.

This cute Christmas card features the Fair Dinkum Christmas Koala holding some Christmas Just Treats. The Treats are a little large but oh they look so cute with the Koala.And to make it just a bit more Christmassy I used the ‘Tis the Season Paper Packet for the background.

Now I want to show you how I used the fab striped border onto this layout which is created from this month the National Stamping Month exclusive Cut Above® Layout Kit. I changed up the layout in the kit & I really wanted to incorporate stamping as this is National Stamping Month & the striped border from the Just Treats September Stamp of the Month worked really well. No one would guess that it is from a Christmas/Halloween Stamp set.

The A Bushel & a Peck – June Stamp of the Month features a sweet girl, apples & lots of “I love you a lot” type sayings. I adore this sweet girl image & found her perfect to use for a number ideas.

A Bushel & a Peck - June Stamp of the Month www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

The sayings were a little different for me – I think it is just not something I would normally hear. But it was fun to find out what a bushel & a peck were & what they meant.

It is a wonderful way to say that I love your more.

 

 

My First card I combine the sweet girl with Fresh Air Paper Pack & used one of the copper foil banners for the Thanks. I had fun fussy cutting some leaves to create my little cluster on the side.

My next card I played with inks & paints & created a background with white embossing & washed out stamped ink flowers using the Beautiful Friendship – Scrapbooking stamp set. I coloured the girl in with pink tones to match into the background.

The Color Your Life – April Stamp of the Month is full of wonderful words, including ones that encourage you to colour in. I love the long borders, the arrow & leaf branch, as these images can be used on any card or scrapbook layout. The words are perfect for scrapbooking, however Celebrate is a word I like to use on Birthday cards.

Color Your Life - April Stamp of the Month www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

I decided to focus on the long decorative borders in the stamp set & use the word Celebrate. I paired the stamp of the month with Gimme Some Sugar paper & the butterflies from the Chelsea Gardens cardmaking stamp set.

I really like the colour combo of the Pewter & the colour of the year Bashful.

Oh I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this stamp of the Month Birthday Time – why because it is all about Birthdays. And I make a lot of Birthday cards. This set looks amazing & can be used for so many people – kids, boys, girls & adults.

Birthday Time March Stamp of the Month www.maz.closetomyheart.com.auWhat else I love about this stamp set is how well it ties into the featured paper packet of this month Stargazer & how well it works with the Super Boy & the Super Girl Stamp & thin cuts.

Now you can get this stamp set for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75 or more on Close to My Heart Product. And I am sure that you will get heaps of use out of it and lots of ideas from this blog hop.

Now to the fun part sharing what I created with the Birthday Time — March Stamp of the Month,

The First card I created was this fab bridge fold card using the Super Boy Stamp set & the city line from the Cricut® You Are Here Collection.
Birthday Time Bridge Fold Card www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au
I used the One Year Older stamp as this way I can give this card to a range of years without having to worry about the actual age. I stamped the image in black, then again in red , fussy cut that one out & stuck it on top with foam tape. I re-stamped in black & cut out the banner and mounted it onto a circle. It made a nice embellishment piece that I could use on any card or scrapbook layout.

My second card I made use of the Cricut® Artfully Sent Collection & cut out one of the pop up cards.

I used one of the birthday greeting stamps to feature on the outside of the card. There is no rule that a greeting has to be on the inside & I like that the outside is a little plain & you get the surprise pop up inside.

If you liked to own this amazing Birthday Time — March Stamp of the Month, all you need to do is add it to your cart at full retail price of $27 OR, with your qualifying order of $75, add it at checkout for the promotional price of $7.50. You only have until Mar 31st (Easter Saturday), to own it.
