May 2013 SOTM

As I mentioned in the last post, our May SOTM marks the end of our Stamp of the Month program.While endings always make me feel a little sad, I have to say that these cards make me feel very happy!  I love this stamp and I love the bright colours Roxy & I played with to make these samples!

Here's the cards I made:
If this next one looks familiar, it's because I used my own technique which was featured by Ranger here.  It's a simple technique that is perfect for this stamp!  I added some fun epoxy dots by MME for texture and a stamp that's an old fave by Hero Arts to finish it off. 

Roxy made these two cards- you can read more details about them on her blog (link in the side bar of the blog).  I love them both!
Just wait until you hear how she made this background... so fun! I won't spoil it though, go see on Roxy's blog!
I hope you enjoyed our samples and our fabulous final Stamp Of the Month!  If you create something with this stamp, I'd sure love to see it... feel free to share a link in the comments on this post!

May 2013 {FINAL SOTM}

Introducing our FINAL Stamp of the Month, a gorgeous floral silhouette image by Magenta!   

In February 2003, over 10 years ago, I started featuring a SOTM at Creative Accents.  My very first stamp was by Magenta so I thought it would be cool to finish off with a stamp by Magenta as well!  Much has changed over the years, but Magenta is still a great Canadian company that produces beautiful rubber stamps!  I look forward to creating with this one some more, but for now I have just one simple card to share with you (a tribute to how busy life is right now!). 

A copy of this stamp is in the hands of one of our faithful design team members, and between us we should have more samples to share with you soon!  As you can see from this card, it's a perfect image in it's simplicity!  I've paired it with patterned papers by Glitz & Echo Park.  The sentiment is an old fave, also by Magenta.

This stamp is 35% off for SOTM members, no extras are available at this time... but we have lots of other great stamps in the store and they are ALL on sale as we work on reducing inventory!
