Just the Ticket! - November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the stamp of the month blog hop.  This month, we have over 50 talented consultants sharing ideas for our Cherish the Day stamp set.   If you've come here from Jen Rubio's blog, you're on the right track.  If you want to move along, Doreen Guilfoyle is up next in the lineup.

I am loving this set of 44 stamps - I've got ideas for almost every month of the year already!  The first project I knew I needed to use this for is a birthday card for my hubs.  His birthday is early in December, and I know if I don't get one done by early November, I will wind up scrambling at the last minute as I get all caught up in holiday stuff.  This stamp set was just the ticket for an addition to a manly card.

I began by making a 8" x 3.5" card base from our Kraft cardstock, and added pattern papers from the Lucky paper pack.  I cut ticket shapes from my papers using the recommended 1" ticket from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  (Don't let the ticket shape be your last stop, though - these stamps would be great on several of the tag and other shapes from the cartridge.)  I stamped the main ticket using the December and 6 stamps, and embossed them with Outdoor Denim embossing powder.

To complete my card, I also used a bracket from the Milepost Shapes package, a Foundry Ribbon Slides (turned over "backwards"), and ribbon & a photo turn from the Sunset Mini-Medley.  I distressed the Milepost Shape using both Outdoor Denim and Olive ink pads.

Now all I have left to do is create a great little gift certificate for him from the kids & me, and sit back and let his birthday roll around!

Now, be sure to head over to Doreen's blog and see what she made to inspire us this month!
