Find Your Style in January

Have I ever had a good time playing with the January Stamp of the Month, "Find Your Style"! This 8" x 3 1/2" card uses a pattern from Wishes, "Roundabout." The new Wings paper is a perfect complement to the style of the stamps.

I did a few different things with this card. The scalloped edge was made using the corner rounder (Z578). Take the corner guard off, flip it over, and scallop away!

The dress form was stamped on the cardstock then stamped again on a separate piece of cardstock. I cut out just the "form" from the second piece and placed it over the stamped image using foam tape to give it some dimension.

I did some masking with the sentiment stamp. I wanted to use the bulk of the saying but use a different "Friend" stamp, so I inked up the entire stamp then placed a small piece of scotch tape over the portion I did not want to stamp. Then I was able to go back and fill in that section with the larger "Friend" stamp in a different colored ink (Vineyard Berry).

The paper medallion was fun and easy to make. I cut a piece of B&T paper 1/2" x 12" and accordian-folded it every 1/4". When it was entirely folded, I used the paper piercer to make a hole all the way through one end. I threaded a large needle with embroidery floss, stuck it through the holes created with the paper piercer, and loosely tied it together. Then I fanned it out into the medallion shape and adhered the edges together. Super easy! You can make them bigger by making the paper wider.

Check out some other great ideas from other consultants!


  1. I love this card Lori! GORGEOUS!!

  2. Really like the ornate 'friend' that you used with the sentiment. Helps give the card an elegant look.
