January 2012 SOTM

Introducing "Quinn with her boots" from Stamping Bella's new Uptown Girl collection- our Stamp of the Month for January 2012!  Quinn is a fun winter image that could be used for all sorts of winter occasions to warm these chilly days... She's quite a large image (about 5" tall) but is fun to play with in a variety of colour schemes!  Sarah worked with me on this month's samples, which all feature the Upcycle collection by Cosmo Cricket!

Sarah made these first two samples:
 This simple card features the sentiment which comes with the image- so sweet and simple!
I (Tara) created these next cards.  Both were stamped in Grey (London Fog) Memento ink for a change from the harsh lines you get with black ink.  I was thrilled to find this ribbon in the store with a fuzzy edge on it- such a fun wintery feel!  The purse charm is also new in the store- perfect with these papers!
 This next card uses the current deconstructed sketch- it was a fun one I'll be using again!  I was thrilled again to find another perfect ribbon for these papers- another one that's been in the store for a while that I hadn't had an opportunity to use yet!  Love it!
We'd LOVE to welcome more ladies into our Stamp of the Month group this month- it's a great way to build your stamp collection with a lot of diversity and great savings (35% off) on a new stamp each month!  Check out the details by clicking the link at the top of the page.

We'll be creating one of these cards at our 'Warm Wishes' class on Saturday, Jan. 14 and there is a discount for SOTM members- we'd love to have you join us!

Great card :) awesome colouring. I have only cut out around an image twice--I mean with a circle, oval etc, leaving some of the image overhanging--note to self....do it more often :)
