Hello, Life - National Stamping Month

Happy National Stamping Month! We're here today with a special blog hop to share three different stamp sets available for this month only. If you've arrived here from Nikka Geers'  blog, or if you're just starting out, you're in the right place, so let's get started.

I really wanted to show the versatility of these stamp sets. So, even though the three Hello, Life stamp sets are each labeled for cardmaking, pocket scrapbooking, and scrapbooking, they can be used together on all of those items.

Using a single sheet of white cardstock (plus some scraps for Cricut Artistry cuts) and stamp pads from the Adventure family and Black, I made some seasonal pocket scrapbooking cards. You could also use these on traditional scrapbook pages, or change the words on some and they would be great additions to card fronts.

3 x 4
These were my Spring cards. The first could really be anytime, but the rainbow of colors reminds me of Spring.  I used second generation stamping on all of the colored parts of all of my cards, for an even greater contrast with the crisp black stamping. I used Hollyhock, Sunset, Honey, Pear, Lagoon, Pacifica, and Gypsy.

4 x 3
My Summer cards are inspired by Independence Day. The stamp sets only had the word "friend", but since there was also "thanks", I separated the s because I am likely to combine "thank" and "you".  I used Cranberry, Honey, and Pacifica inks.

For my Autumn cards, I was inspired by the Autumn leaves. I used Cranberry, Sunset, Honey, and Topiary for my favorite season.

For my Winter cards, I thought of crisp snowy days, and New Year's Eve. I love the color combo of Pear, Lagoon, and Gypsy for Winter.

Here is what is included in each $13.95 stamp set:

Pocket Scrapbooking
Card Making

Now, if the photos of the stamp sets alone don't convince you that you need all three (of course at a reduced rate of $34.95), here is a list of all the words included, as well as some of the phrases you can make with them!

See the potential now? What a fabulous group of stamps for $34.95! I am looking forward to pairing them with even more of my stamp sets to come up with more phrases for all of my projects.
