January Stamp of the Month Bloghop - "This Moment"

Welcome to January's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month, we are featuring the stamp set "This Moment" - a set of 12 stamps. The obvious theme is love, but there are so many other things that this stamp set can be used for as you will see throughout this blog hop, I am sure, so sit back and enjoy as you hop through the consultants' blogs on this tour. You should have arrived here from Gina Brandsetter's blog. If you get lost, a list of all blogs can be found here

The stamp set looks like this.

I chose to complete three projects with this set. The first two are cards. The first is a standard card at 41/4" x 51/2". I also wanted to use the Heartstrings PML cards as I have not used any of those products for card-making yet and I really wanted to experiment with that option, so this is what I came up with.  

 The second card is a 3"x 4" card - very simple and easy with few embellishments. 

My last project is a fun one - I decided to create a set of "Love Notes" - 6 fun date night cards. I used a PML card for the front and stamped the Love Notes sentiment on the front and then added a few embellishments. The following photo shows three of the six date night cards. I simply printed them on cardstock and then mounted them on co-ordinating paper from the Heartstrings paper pack. Everything is held together with a clothes peg from the Ruby Mini-Medley Collection.

I hope you enjoyed my projects. The next blog on the hop is Kathy Burrows' blog. I'm sure she has something wonderful to share with you!
