August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Something Splendid

This month's stamp of the month is truly Something Splendid! This set of 13 stamps makes it so easy to create something, well, splendid! Join me on this month's blog hop to see tons of great ideas with this gorgeous stamp set. (Have you arrived from Barbra O.'s blog? Great! Head on over to Cindy L.s's next!)

This stamp set is so pretty with the Splendor paper pack. (Hmm, Something Splendid, Splendor... I think there's a theme here!). The colors of this pack (Moonstruck, Heavenly Blue, Goldrush, and Topiary) seemed really bright to me, so I added touches of Chocolate. I love this addition! I also "toned down" the Moonstruck cardstock base by sanding it then ink distressing the edges. The card pattern is the "Bullseye" from the Wishes how-to guide that I modified from 5"x7" to a standard-size card.

Thanks for stopping in! Now head on over to Cindy L.'s Papers, Pads, and Pictures.

All supplies from Close To My Heart: Something Splendid stamp set; Splendor paper pack; Goldrush, Topiary, Moonstruck, and Chocolate inks; Basic craft buttons; Colonial White hemp; distressing kit

  5. Your card is just lovely. I love that paper. I bought some, but I tend to hoard the paper because I don't want to cut it!!

    For some reason, I only had pink in my head for this stamp set, but I love the colors you selected.

    Thanks for the inspiration.
