Monogram It!

Monograms are all the rage right now and I have to say, after playing with the new Monogram Stamper by JustRite over the weekend, this little stamping toy sure makes it easy! I made this grouping of cards for a friend and I love how it turned out! All of the paper came out of a Basic Grey's Scarlet's Letter 6 by 6 pad. This makes it VERY easy to color coordinate! I used the Monogram Stamper with the large alphabet and instead of using the border that came with the set, I used the Damask Border. I love this design! It's so classy and elegant! While each matted circle was created with the small circle and scalloped circle Nestabilities, and each has a black satin ribbon accent, each note card is a tad bit different. Can you see the envelopes? I masked off an edge and used both the Damask background from Flourishes and a border stamp in the Flourished Elements set, to give my envelopes a pop of black too!

This one is a black and white look with AB Crystals in the four corners of the border.

This one is primarily black and red with red rhinestones....

And the upper one here has amber rhinestones while the lower one has gold nail heads. See the red strip on the lower note card? That was done with the red distressed paper in the paper pad with the brand new Spring Ephemerals set just out by Flourishes LLC! I stamped it once in black and then stamped over it with gold. It was a cool effect! Too bad it is just along a strip of paper!
Do you want a chance to win a Monogram Stamper of your own???? Well, run, don't walk over to Leslie Miller's place. She's got some fantastic blog candy and I've been told, there won't be just one winner -- there will be FOUR!

Good luck & I'll be back tomorrow!

This is sorta eerie/scary. I had started a little list of questions late on Friday about the monogram stamper and was planning to e-mail you this week... I ran (with scissors, of course) over to Leslie's "place" and signed up before I even commented here. You should see what I do for chocolate candy!?! These monogramed cards are AWESOME!! Think you're the perfect member for the design team - go forth and flourish!
