Happy New Year!

One of my resolutions this year is to ACT on the inspiration I feel when visiting all of the wonderful blogs out there. I can spend hours reading, learning, contemplating, and *cough*cough*shoppping*cough* instead of actually CREATING. So, starting the new year off right with my friend Mel!

We both LOVE Jen McGuire's blog. A few months ago she paired up with a few other bloggers and they each made different projects using the same stamp set. It was very cool!  So, Mel and I decided that we would use the Hero Arts music background stamp that she so generously gifted me. Thank you Mel :)

Without further ado, here are 3 things I've made *so far* with this versatile cling stamp!!

I started off simple with my new favorite color combo - kraft and black! I cut these stars out on my cricut at 2.5 inches and stamped/inked in black. These will make quick and easy embellishments on my next project!

When I was at my local Michaels, I found this "just a note" wood block stamp in the $1 bin! I knew it would be a perfect pair with the background. I embossed the music stamp in white on red cardstock. I adhered a piece of coordinating red satin ribbon on a white strip (that I punched with my threading water border punch). Last, I stamped the "just a note" in the same color ink and mounted on red and I was good to go!

 I really like how it turned out, so much that I made a matching set of 3. I think my purple is my favorite ;)

Lastly, I made a premade 12x12 layout {another resolution}. I was inspired by my new-to-me Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. This little rocker is so cute! I cut him at 5" with cardstock and silver glitter paper from DCWV. I downloaded and cut the "guitar hero" font with my Sure Cuts a Lot program. The music note background was the perfect touch!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I just noticed I have 200 followers! What a way to ring in the new year :) Here's to many more accomplishments in 2011!

Be sure to hop over to Mel's blog to see the fabulous projects she made with the same stamp!!

I SO love it! Your projects are adorable. I like the stars, so versatile and cute. The cards you made are gorgeous, and I think that layout is just fabulous. Love how you paired the stamp with Guitar Hero. I never would've thought of that! Yay! This was so much fun. We should do it again!
