July's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

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

If you have come here from Nicole's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Helen's Blog and start from the beginning!

This month we have 67 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This 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!

The adorable images of this stamp set are cute for many occasions!  Here I incorporated a little bit of paper-piecing, by stamping the entire image onto the Colonial White Cardstock.  I then stamped it once more on each of the various patterned papers seen in the balloons.  By cutting out the images and gluing them onto the cardstock image, I was able to achieve different "textures" in the balloons.  The Colonial White Designer Brads, which match the colors of the Zippidee paper pack, provided the finishing touches for this 6x6 card made from our exclusive Originals card program (Button Trio pattern).

Products Used: X7125B Zippidee Level 2 Paper Packet (coordinating stamp pads - Black, Chocolate, Desert Sand, Cranberry), Z1103 Cranberry Grosgrain Ribbon, Z1274 Colonial White Designer Brads.

Now "Hop" on over to Katherine's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the July SOTM is only available until July 31, 2010.  Contact me (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!
