August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop...

It's been kind of crazy around here since I got back from convention and low and behold, it is time again for the August Stamp of the Month "Blog Hop." This month we feature a very beautiful large floral stamp set with sentiments called "Something Splendid." This stamp set is perfect for overstamping, using bleach techniques and lots of other creative stamping uses. You will surely find that out as you hop around this month to over 60 blogs bursting with ideas!

If you have come to my blog from Chris Shouses blog, you are on the right track. Check out what I have created this month and then click on the link below to continue on the hop!



I pulled out my embossing supplies this month and made a simple but elegant card.








Basically, I embossed one of the large stamp images of the flower in the center with gold powder along with the "Enjoy Life" saying. Looking kind of plain, I embossed the center in gold as well and popped it up. Still not happy, I went out and got some gold beads and used liquid glass to adhere them to the center. (trying to look like the seeds in the middle of a sunflower?) It is gorgeous in real life....this picture shows the detail a little better.




I am looking forward to showing off some of the upcoming Stamp of the Month sets that were unveiled recently at our CTMH convention in Washington, DC. Please come back next month and join us...

In the meantime if you are itching to get your own "Something Splendid" stamp set at a nice discount or even free, click here and get to shopping! Also stop back to see sneak peaks of new product available to you September 1st in the new Fall/Winter Catalog/Idea Book!
