Story of December Days Stamp Set

Let’s look at what I created:

December Moments

Technique Tuesday released a fabulous stamp set called December Moments.  It a sentiment stamp set that you use to document those awesome moments in December.

Each year I buy all of these supplies and plan on participating in all of the December documenting and never do. The supplies just sit there and I look at it and say, “next year”, LOL!

Not this year. I decided to create a little book out of old cards that are numbered for each day in December. I will take a moment out of each day and document what happens.

December Moments

I stamped a couple of pages with the sentiments that I know I can document right away!

Nice and easy! Its small enough to fit in my bag so I can carry it with me everywhere in the month of December.

Not overwhelming at all.

Blending Colors with Gamsol: CS Take It Make it Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge for the month of November.

This month’s theme is Take a Stamp!!  That means take any stamp and create something, anything goes!! Now if that isn’t easy, I’m not sure what is!!

Take a look at my card:


Here is a close up of the gingerbread man:


This Neat and Tangled Beary Merry stamp set is so cute and I had to use it for this challenge.  This bear is so cute and the fact that he can hold the different objects in the stamp set makes it even better.

I used Prisma Color Pencils to color in the bear and the gingerbread man.  The colors I used were Goldenrod (PC1034), Light Aqua (PC992), Chocolate (PC1082), Warm Gray (PC1050), Cool Gray (PC1059) and Crimson Red (PC924).

I used Gamsol to blend all of the colors out.

Then I used a PenBlade to trim one of the bears hands so that he could hold the gingerbread man.

I lifted the bear’s hand slightly and slide the gingerbread underneath it.  He stayed put.

Nice and easy!

Sooooo, what do you think? Please let me know below.


We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for November is: The Artistic Stamper!

Now if that isn’t a reason to play along I’m not sure what is!!

I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

To create this card:

  3. Then adhered it to the card base using Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive.
  4. After that I used the Mini Misti to stamp the sentiment from the Hero Arts Thanks Stamp and Cut stamp set using Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Wick Ink.
  5. After that I die cut the thanks out of white card stock four times and adhered them together using Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive. I adhered the stack on top of the pattern paper.

Super, super easy to create.
