Welcome to the Rose Blossoms Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop. If you came from the lovely Marg's blog then you're hopping right along. If you are just starting here make sure to click on the link at the end of this blog to move on to Morgan's blog. We've all got a treat for you using the brand new SOTM. You're sure to be inspired by what you see.
This Cheers 2016 stamp set has given me the opportunity to do something that's certainly not my "normal". I created a cover page for my 2016 album already. Sometimes I don't make that until half the year is over. I always like to have a page to kick it all off. I use one simple photo of our family.
Here's the title page I wound up with. Now all I need is a family photo when we're all together again.
To make the rainbow panel I stamped the image straight down a piece of watercolor paper and then heat embossed it in silver. I used my Versamat to keep everything lined up as best I could. I was stamping white on white, not exactly easy to see. I also wanted to show you what the paints look like brand new because ... well, they'll never look like this again!
That's part of the whole white on white problem. I stamped the same image in the same place (sorta). BUT this mistake led to this fix ...
And for that I'm truly thankful. It really gives my layout just the right little boost I was looking for and I was able to use one more of the stamps in the set.
I have lots of other ideas for this stamp set that I hope to show you as the month goes on. For now, hop on over to see what Morgan has for you over at TweetScraps.
