Special Care: December Stamp of the Month

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  I hope you all had a GREAT Thanksgiving and are ready to create with us and the December Stamp of the Month, Special Care!  If you have come here from Carla’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.  It’s super simple – just click on the link at the end of each blog post to hop to the next one!

My favorite thing about this stamp set is the text and tag shapes, so I decided to create my own pattern paper by random stamping each image.  I chose chocolate, cranberry, and blush inks because this set is perfect for Valentine’s Day or any of your little loved ones (including those fur babies!).  When random stamping, I always start stamping in the center of the paper and work my way outside.  Having images overlap the edges of the paper truly gives your pattern a realistic feel – so don’t be afraid if it doesn’t fit perfectly!  Here is how my sheet looked after random stamping.

To create my finished page, I used an overlay from the fabulous ARTBOOKING Cricut Cartridge.   Wouldn’t this page be perfect in a frame?
