July Stamp of the Month BLOG HOP

Welcome to another Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month BLOG HOP! (If you came from Nona's site, you're hopping right along. If you want to start at the beginning, go to Jena's site, or just keep hopping from here- link below).

The "You've Got Flair" stamp of the month features seven lacy, Victorian outline images plus the title sentiment. I used the Moon Doggie paper pack for both of my cards. The first one follows the Wishes "Geometric" sketch. I used my Cranberry and Bamboo markers and my waterbrush with Indian Corn Blue ink to color in the focal image. There's a Cranberry brad in the very center. Then I went back w/the Cranberry marker and colored in a few tiny shapes on the background.

When I looked closely at this set, I started to see snowflakes. What do you think? Christmas in July? This sentiment comes from the Holiday Joy stamp set. I also used the Moon Doggie papers, but it doesn't look the least bit tropical now. Can you see the tiny sparkle on the dark snowflake? The scan does not do it justice.
Thanks for stopping by. Now hop on over to see what Misty has up her sleeve! Also, come back here tomorrow to see what my talented swappers created this month with "You've Got Flair," the July stamp of the month. If you don't already have a consultant and would like to get this stamp set for yourself, visit my CTMH website. Thanks!
Also, if you've ever thought about getting your own discount on CTMH products, think about signing up as a consultant this month. There's a fab "signing bonus" this month. More details to come...
Finally, here is a list of all the bloggers in this hop, and in case you're finding us later in the month or year, these links should take you directly to their July stamp of the month posts.
