April SOTM Blog Hop - You Are...

Happy Spring! Welcome to the April SOTM Blog Hop. if you have arrived here from
then you are on the right track. It is one big circle so you start anywhere and hop your way through some amazing artwork and awesome ideas on how to use this fantastic set,

You Are... is an awesome set of 15 stamps.

Aren't they fun? You can use these to describe a person or an  event. You can use them on scrapbook pages, cards or even home decor. As usual with our SOTM sets the possibilities are endless.

Here is what I created using this set.
 I used the Cocoa, Sunset, Tulip and Lagoon colors from the Stella paper pack and created my own stamped background. I love the way the different colors and fonts combine to create a fun background. The medallion, the tag and the banners were cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. I don't think there is much that I create these days that I don't use that cartridge, it lives in my Cricut full time.

Here is a close up of the medallion, its so easy to cut those intricate cuts when you use the Cricut. Can you even imagine trying to do that (multiple times) with a craft knife?
Supplies used:
Stella level 1 paper pack
Exclusive inks in Cocoa, Tulip, Sunset and Lagoon
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
Tulip Mini Medley (button)
Antique Copper Bitty Brads
Chocolate Waxy Flax
You Are - April SOTM Set
Here are some other great ways to use this set from my swap groups.

Now make like a bunny and hop on over to

Seems like a few of us had the same idea for using the words for a background. :) Love how you used multiple colors on yours. Really striking!
