July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring July's Stamp of the Month, which is "D1423 Happy Forever," a set of 9 stamps.

If you have come here from Jamia's Blog, you are on the right path! When you reach the end of my post you will continue hopping along from the link posted for you.

This month we have over 70 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's Stamp of the Month and other great Close to My Heart products on their blogs. Hopping along with us is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

For my card creation, I used the cardmaker's how-to recipe book, "Originals" cardmaking how-to program and followed the pattern called, Lucky Three. The how-to programs from Close to My Heart are such great time-savers for me. The programs really do make my projects come together: "Faster. Simpler. Easier."

Project Supplies:
Stamps: D1423 Happy Forever, July's Stamp of the Month
Paper: Splendor Level 2 paper packet
Cardstock: Moonstruck CS and Colonial White CS
Inks: Chocolate, Moonstruck, and Topiary
Markers:  Heavenly Blue, Sunflower, and Topiary
Watercolor Pencils:  Brown Bag and Chocolate
Embellishments: Pizzazz Irresistibles Dimensional Elements Chipboard and Stardust Glitz Glitter Glue
Tools: "Originals" how-to book, Micro-Tip Scissors, Blending Pen, Sponges, Edge Distresser, and Glue Dots

I am having so much fun playing with the Pizzazz Irresistibles chipboard.  For the bracket shown here, I used a sponge to ink up the chipboard element and love the embossed dots that remain bright white against the contrast of the sponged Moonstruck ink.  Aren't the Splendor papers just perfect for this whimsical hedgehog stamp set?!?

From this image below, you can see all of the 9 stamp images included in this stamp set. As you can see, there are many great uses for this set! This set can be a nice addition to both your cardmaking and scrapbooking bag of tricks, whether for a birthday card or layout, or for a fun "just because" sort of card. In the month of July, you can earn at a discount or even FREE! Ask me how!

Remember, the July stamp of the month is only available until July 31st! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

When visiting my website: you can also find great Close to My Heart scrapbooking and stamping supplies anytime you want, 24/7.

Now "Hop" on over to Beth's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to see some great artwork!

The full list of everyone who will be participating this month and links to their blogs, if you need help hopping along with us, can be found in my prior post.
