September Stamp Of The Month

Here is some of my samples for the stamp of the month using some of the new colors.
I wanted to use the color scheme from the Hooligans Level 2 Paper Pack (X7129B) but, I didn't want to buy it. Instead, I used available cardstock of the new colors and B&T from the Olivia paper pack. Improvise, improvise.

Here is a close up of the stamp set above. Sorry, its stained with the Black ink and Stayz-On. A brand new stamp pad doesn't look this way, and yes, they do stain.

I took a lunch sack and folded it down to approximately 5 1/4 x 4 1/2 size. I random stamped the new Pear Cardstock with Pear ink cutting each piece to fit each rectangle with a bit of the paper sack showing all around.


You can decorate each section as you wish. I used the dotted paper from the Olivia (X7128B) Level 2  Paper Pack to get the Sunset and Pear color in the B&T. I used the new Gypsy cardstock and stamped with the Black ink for the head and hat and the sentiment using the new Lagoon color for a little extra color.

The inside is decorated with the two B&T from Olivia using fronts and backs. I used a clear acrylix card cut in half using only one half. I stamped the design on the acrylix with Stayz-On and stamped again with Black ink on the Gypsy cardstock cutting out the inside to fit underneath the acrylix stamped image.


Heres a better picture. I added some embellishments from the new Lagoon (Z1340) and the Sunset (Z1338) Mini Medleys. 

Heres a sample of one of the acrylix card (Z1309) that  I used. Be sure and peel off the protective covers inside and out to get that clear look.

Heres a couple more pictures of the inside. No space is left bare. LOL!


Its nice as a card and a treat bag!

Here is a 12x12 layout page using black cardstock as the base. Very simple, fast and easy.

A close up of the little guy down in the corner. I used a Sparkle (Z1326) for his eye. "AAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!
Love me bling!"

Heres a card using all the colors listed for the Hooligans paper pack: Gypsy, Lagoon, Pear and Sunset as mentioned above.
