If You Stamp It ~ "Use Your Stash" Blog Hop

"If You Stamp It, They Will Love It" is the theme for this month's "Use Your StashBlog Hop.  The idea is to use a stamp set that has never been loved (used) before.            

If you have come here from Mom 'n Me Scrapyou are right on track for the "Use Your Stash" Blog Hop.  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one, or visit each blog from the list at the end of this post.  

One of the new stamp sets introduced in the current Seasonal Expressions booklet is this great military set named Salute Our Heroes.  In keeping with the military theme, I thought it best to keep the card very basic, so two of the images were stamped using Black ink and paired with papers from the Wanderful kit.  The card design is Pattern #26 from Make It From Your Heart Volume 2.  To complete the card, an image of dogtags from the Salute Our Heroes set is stamped on the inside.       

Now "Hop" on over to the Stampologist to see what stamp set she has decided to use from her collection.   

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

  1. I love it, those stamp sets are always my favorites and yet I rarely use them! Great job!!

    1. Thank you, Shirley. It is a really nice stamp set. Glad that I finally used it to create something. :)

  2. Your card turned out awesome! I love how you placed the colors that you used.

  3. Love the use of the different patterned papers, and the stamp set is a really great set.

  4. Great card design! As the mom of a sailor I just had to get that stamp set as soon as it came out yet I'm sad to say that my stamp set has not yet been "loved" or used. Seeing what you've done with it just may inspire to take it out and create with it soon.

    1. Yes, Marie. You need to get that stamp set out and play with it. :)

  5. I love this set it is very close to home for me. Thank you for honoring those who serve.
