July 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."

If you have come here from Judy's Blog, you are on the right path!
If a link is broken or you get lost go to Helen's Blog and continue on your journey with the link listed there. 

This month we have 70 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!

This clear card was made with the Wishes "Down the Middle" pattern on pg. 35.  It uses the Twitterpated Paper Pack, Sorbet, Chocolate, Colonial White Cardstock, Sorbet & Chocolate Ink, Versa Mark Ink pad, Autumn Soft Chalks and Liquid glass.
For the porcupine I did the technique of Chalk popping.  I stamped this cute little guy with Versa Mark and then used my chalks in the Autumn set of chalks to color him in.   I used the Liquid Glass on the butterfly to give it some dimension. 

This 2nd card is also another clear card.  I used the Originals "Pretty Simple" pattern on pg. 116 to make this card.  I used the Veranda Creative Basics Paper pack, Garden Green & Juniper Cardstock, Juniper Ink, Versa Mark, Autumn Soft chalks and Liquid glass.

For this card I also did the Chalk Popping Technique.  I used the Versa Mark pad to stamp the porcupine and balloons and then used the chalks to color them in.  I used the Liquid glass around the balloons and on the hearts on the sentiment.

Now "Hop" on over to Brae'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 31st! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

Happy Hoppin'
