January Stamp of the Month samples

Hello everyone! I was asked once again to design some card samples around the Stamp of the Month for January. Here is what the set looks like: Cost is $9.75 when you purchase $30.00 in merchandise.

Here are some of the samples I made.

Acetate card using the square nestabilities to cut out the shapes. Sentiment is from the Hostess set Enjoy Nature. Tree is stamped in versamagic tea leaves and then embossed with clear embossing powder. Ribbon is colored with a Copic marker to match the cardstock.

The heart tree and the sentiment is stamped in versamark onto vellum and then embossed with gold. The vellum is attached with eyelets and ribbon. Paper is from the Amberley Grace soar with it collection. The sentiment is from Rejoicing with you. Doesn't this make a wonderful wedding card?

This next one is a quick, clean and simple card. Tree stamped in Versamagic tea leaves and embossed in clear. Sentiment is stamped in Palette Noir and embossed. The sentiment is from the Hostess set Enjoy Nature. Black rhinestones are added to the corners where the scored lines meet. Background green paper is from TAC.

This tree was done using the Marker and Huff method of stamping. Paper is from the Amberley Grace Soar with it collection. The edges of the paper are inked up with Palette Burnt Umber and the sentiment is also stamped in it too! Six antique copper brads are added for some interest.

And this one is done with versamark and clear embossing powder. I like that it's so subtle on the green paper. These papers are from the Willoughby Soar with it collection. The sentiment is from the set Life Thoughts.

There is one other card that I haven't shown you and it is on The Angel Companies blog under promotions>stamp of the month. Or you can just click here. Usually you are able to click on my name and the samples come up, but they haven't updated the site as of yet. This is a great little set that has a lot of possibilities, just like I've hopefully shown you!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

These are awesome! LOVE that gold embossed 'wedding-y' one especially. And your SOTM sample on the TAC website is brilliant! I love the idea of using the image sideways.

Love all these cards and the one at TAC too. Had already planned to get this set. I like the way you and Barb turned it to the side to make it look more like a branch as they look like small trees upright.
