November Stamp of the Month

Wow- time is flying by, isn't it?  It's a new month and therefore time to share with you our new Stamp of the Month- a great set of 4 border stamps from Hero Arts & Basic Grey!  There are four distinct designs, all of which coordinate with the new Basic Grey collection, Little Black Dress.
Our Design Team member, Janet, worked with me on our samples this month- hope they inspire you!  There are so many possibilities when you're working with border stamps!  Here's a closer look at our cards!  These first two are by Janet, you can find out more about what she did on her blog (I'm not sure if they'll be on the blog too, but she brought me several other fun samples as well, so check them out when you're in the store next!)

 I (Tara) made these next two, using the LBD papers with the stamps.  This next one is my fave, featuring a new 'Snow Diva' stamp by Whipper Snapper.  I've used the leopard print border stamp on her paper pieced hat & bag as well as on the border of the card.  I stamped it simply in black, then added some shading with brown Copic Markers where the design had some natural shading.  I've also used a border die from the new Border "IT KIT" gift set from Lifestyle Crafts!  I love the punch of turquoise with the animal print- so fun!  Liquid Applique on her hat and the snow at her feet add additional texture to this card.
 This next one is really simple- I created a frame with the crosshatch design and added a simple embossed sentiment and paper flowers.  Again, I've used LBD papers for a bit of extra texture.
Hope you like our cards!  As always, this set of stamp is available for SOTM members for 35% off the regular price!  Pick up your stamps by the 15th of the month and you'll save on any other Hero Arts stamps you purchase as well!
