January Stamp of the Month - Carousel Birthday

I just got done with the January Stamp of the Month cards, and I am not kidding that they were, once again, alot of fun to make!  If you would ever like to get in on the Stamp of the Month, just drop me an email or note on my blog and I will email you the details.

When the stamping ladies who voted for this stamp set to be the Stamp of the Month, I thought okay, now this will be a challenge!  This is a stamp set I probably would have never ordered from the Occasions Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog, but let me tell you, it is great!!
So let's get started and enjoy the cards that I came up with for the January Stamp of the Month!  I also used the Cupcakes & Carousel Embellishment Kit from the Occasions Catalog, Page 9; Every thing that I needed was right in this Kit for making the cards GREAT!!
