I made a couple of different cards for this month:
I just love these stamps! I can't wait to use them on a scrapbook layout too, but they are perfectly suited to cards for anyone.
This monochromatic card has a slightly more masculine feel, which you can up even further by choosing a slightly darker color. I chose this Crystal Blue pattern from the Paper Fundamentals Whimsy Assortment because the pattern has a slightly Art Deco feel that pairs well with the vintage stamp designs. The simple metal embellishments and black matting enhance the vintage and masculine look.
This more feminine version retains the black matting on the stamped image, with a much narrower border on the pattern paper made by drawing an alcohol marker along the edge of the paper. I used accessories from the Black Mini-Medley Accents, a Purple Glitter Gem, and some paper flowers from my stash.
If you'd like to check out any of the products I used, I have a picture list below. When you're ready to hop along, let's go see what Dana Kessler has in store for us this month. I'm sure you'll have tons of ideas for this stamp set by the time we're done!
