July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop


Happy Freedom Month and welcome to the July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month the featured stamp of the month is S1307 Sweet Life--a set of 9 images featuring fruit.  Below are the images in this stamp set that are available only thru July 31st.
 
 

If you have come here from Helen Onulak's blog you are on the right path! You can find a list of all the participants (in case you get lost) here: http://bowlofstamps.blogspot.com/p/sotm-blog-hop-list.html  This month we have over 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this set. The hop is simple to follow - just click on the link provided in the post to move to the next blog!

My item is a 4" x 5.5" card. When I cut out the paper for the card, I cut it at 5.5" x 8" (instead of 5.5" x 8.5").  So, what's a quarter of an inch right?  I thought I would feature the Dakota papers which will soon be retiring.  I love the look of this paper with black cardstock!


Next a closer look at the sparkle tape:



Papers:  Dakota WOTG, Black cardstocks
Stamps:  S1307 Sweet Life
Ink:    Black Exclusive Inks; Cranberry and Topiary Alcohol Markers
Embellishments:  Black Shimmer Trim; Black Mini Medley (while supply lasts) 
Other:  Art Philosophy cartridge

Time to hop on over to Nikka Geer's Blog to see her beautiful eye candy! Be sure to visit all the Consultants' Blogs to get some great crafting and other fun ideas! Remember, the SOTM is only available thru July 31st! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set for $5!

Happy hopping!
