May is National Stamping Month

One of the best techniques I like to use in stamping is called the “rock-n-roll” where a darker color is rolled on the edges of an image stamped first in a lighter color.  Look at this hibiscus flower from the current Postcard Perfect stamp set, isn’t it just so cute?

Well this one lends itself so very well to this stamping technique. A very creative CTMH consultant, Brenda Rose, has a video ion her Facebook page showing how she uses two shades of pink to create a beautiful flower. The link is at the bottom of this post.  She made a card using the flower & rock-n-roll technique in two shades of yellow. Look the finished product here – and the Mason jar is from the May (this month only) Stamp of the Month images 🙂  Absolutely gorgeous, right?!?

The many shades of pink

Pink is one of those colors that screams little girls but it can also be sophisticated for any age and any project. Take a look at this month’s “Pretty in Pink” special bundles and you will see what I mean:

1802-cc-pretty-in-pink

From Bashful to Blossom, Pixie to Raspberry, there’s a shade of pink that will make your heart flutter.  And speaking of flutter, one of the specials includes all the raw materials needed to create this gorgeous mobile (but you do need Cricut cartridges to make the specific images 🙂 )

1802-cc-butterfly-mobile I have the instructions for you to make this so contact me to get your PDF file copy.

With all my house construction, I sure wish I could invite you over to craft together but hopefully I will be able to do so soon!  Follow my Facebook page for updates and until then,

Happy Crafting!
