We Love Stamping December Reminder

Today is the 18th so time for a reminder for the current challenge over at We Love Stamping. The challenge where you can showcase your stamps and your skill at using them.

This month our theme is:

** I Love **
I am still loving turnabout stamps

I think this is my all time favourite stamp, I have used it so many times. You can see it here and here. In fact I have also used this basic design before here. Anyway, I hope you don't think that's cheating, I think I am just proving how much I love this stamp.

I do love the way this stamp creates a perfect circle and it is also quite easy to get it lined up. Some of my other turnabout stamps don't get used much because of the difficulty lining them up. The background stamps are the worst I find.

I mounted the panel on some grey craft foam and also popped the balloon numbers up on foam so that they show up a little bit.

Don't forget there is always a prize to be won and this month the prize is a Gorjuss scrapbook kit and matching dies. Why don't you head over to the challenge blog to check it out? The prize winner is selected randomly and in addition the DT will choose one entry to join us as a guest designer for a future challenge.

I hope I have inspired you to join us this month, all you have to do is follow the prompt and ensure stamping is the main focus on your card. The challenge will close at noon on Wednesday the 28th December

I am looking forward to seeing you in the gallery.

Nearly Christmas, I hope you all have a fabulous holiday

You have a knack for these turn-about stamps, Hilary! So very beautiful, just keep them coming, and I see you are still enjoying those Spellbinder hemstitching dies as much as always!

Another fabulous display of these turn about stamps, Hilary! I love the numbered balloons!

Ashwini Rao said...

Gorgeous colors and I love the camouflaged balloons as well as their swirly tails, which are actually adding to the design! I also love how the circular die looks like it came as a set with the stamp - its so perfect!! Awesome combination of products for this card, Hilary. Really love it!

Beautifully done with the numbers blending into the focal element Hilary. I think I need to buy some of those inks just for the pleasing shape!

Christine Alexander said...

wonderful birthday card Hillary, I love the camouflaged 70 inside that beautiful design ♥

Leslie Miller said...

Holy cow, I'm so far behind and I'm sorry about that Hilary! I know you love your turnabout stamps and, as I've said before, you're the BEST at using them. You've totally perfected the technique. This particular set is so very pretty. The colors here are extra appealing. Very cool with the subliminal "70", and how fun that the numbers are balloons! I don't know if I thanked you yet for the Christmas card. The background with the black die cut takes my breath away! Merry Christmas!

Anke said...

WOW WOW WOW I love your card, the idea is great.


Helen said...

Love it! The way you've popped up the 70 makes it really effective.

Thanks for joining us at the AAA Birthday Challenge.
