National Stamping Month Blog Hop

National Stamping Month is right around the corner, and Close To My Heart is offering a really cool "Double-D" stamp set, It's Your Day, for the occasion.  This two-sets-in-one special offer begins 8/15 and runs through September.  When you make a $35 minimum purchase, you can get this great stamp set (well, actually, two sets) for only $5!

Check out what my group of talented consultants has created for you on this National Stamping Month blog hop.  If you're already hopping, then you've arrived from Sheila Bennett's blog and you'll visit Melinda Everitt next.

As soon as I saw this set, I was drawn to the bicycle image.  (My brother is a cyclist.)  I had fun with this bright and cheery color combo inspired by the CR84FN 60 color combo.  I only used Gypsy, Pacifica, Pear, and White Daisy card stock and inks, plus the stamp set to create this card.  A little Grey Wool baker's twine finishes off the banners.

My second card uses a simple technique to make "motion."  Again, I only used cardstock, ink, and the stamp set to create all the texture that you see.  This time I stuck with Pacifica and Pear.

Those of you coming to my card class this Saturday will get a chance to play with this cool set!

Thanks for checking out my projects.  Be sure to come back for more!  Now go see what Melinda has made.
