May's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop... "Just Sayin'"

Welcome to the CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
May 2015's Stamp of the Month is called.....
****Just Sayin'****

With over 60 participants in this blog hop, you are sure to find lots of great inspiration!  The hop makes a circle, so if you are starting here just continue until you make your way back and you will have made it through them all. If you have already started and are coming from Tracey Pierce's blog, then you are on the right track.

From banners, to labels, to sentiments, to shapes, this month's stamp set has something for everyone.  The various, images are perfect for cards and scrapbook pages. 

For whatever reason, it was the simple geometric shapes, that drew my attention first. In looking for inspiration, my eye was drawn to CAS cards...nothing new there...just sayin'. ;) I decided to create a trio of cards, sticking to a single color palette to tie them together. 

Inspired by this card.
Inspired by this card. I cut out the inset portion of the "Enjoy the Moment" stamped image and backed with a piece of gold shimmer trim.
Inspired by this card. First, I stamped the circles in second generation by using the back of the stamp (the side you would normally stick to the block). Then I stamped the striped side with the same color using first generation.
