Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring August's Stamp of the Month, which is "D1424 Something Splendid" a set of 13 stamps.
If you have come here from Mary'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 60 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." In September, there will be the debut of a brand new how-to program for your scrapbooking called, "Magic." I will have a new creation to share using that new recipe book just in time for the next hop.

Cardstock: Tulip CS and Colonial White CS

With this stamp set I enjoyed the two-step stamping with the base and shade stamps that this set includes. I've made a few different versions of this card so I could have different colored flowers. This is the version I liked best with these Cherry-O and Cherry-O Creative Basics paper combo. This flower base is stamped with Blush ink and the shade stamping was done with Chocolate ink. I'd love to hear what you think. I'll see about posting my other versions another day.
