November 2011 CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the November 2011 CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop, featuring Cherish the Day, a set of 44 Stamps.  If you've just arrived here from {Nicole's} blog, you are on the right path.  If you are just starting here, just jump in and enjoy our circular hop, which has over 50 participants this month.  When you reach the end of a post, click on the link at the end to go to the next post in the hop.

My project is a birthday card for a December birthday.  I used the super-cute Roxie paper pack, which is even better in person than it appears in the Idea Book!  My card was loosely patterned after one of the cards on page 143 in the Idea Book.  And I'm LOVIN' the layers!  Six layers of scrumptious colors and patterns!  These papers are so great, and I can see them being used for all sorts of occasions (even Christmas).

The Filagree Charm was sponged with Timber Brown Staz-on ink, and the Desert Sand cardstock was sponged with Smoothie ink.  The Smoothie cardstock was cut with the Nestabilities Labels One and sponged with Smoothie ink while still in the die.  The tag was stamped in Tulip ink on Vanilla Cream cardstock and cut with a slight border.  The sentiment was then stamped on the tag in Cocoa ink.  The December tag was stamped in Tulip ink on Vanilla Cream cardstock and trimmed with a slight border.  The pieces were all mounted, and the shaped portion was mounted using 3-D Mounting Foam.
