July SOTM Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring July's SOTM, which is You've Got Flair, a set of 8 stamps. 


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


This month we have 43 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!

I love this stamp set! I have to admit, I was a little stumped at first…how do I showcase the detail of these beautiful stamps. I chose to use them with some Colonial White Pigment-Based Ink stamped onto Juniper Cardstock and then highlight an image on each card stamped in 2nd generation Black Ink and colored in using coordinating ink and a blending pen. I love the results!


All my card designs come from Jeanette Lynton’s latest Card Confidence Program, Wishes, and I used one of her recent Color Me Monday combinations of  Hollyhock, Blush, Juniper, Creme Brulee. I used the reverse side of the Bella Level 2 Paper Packet B&T Duos for the Creme Brulee & Hollyhock.
