August Stamp of The Month Blog Hop....

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring August's SOTM,which is IT"S YOUR DAY, a set of 26 stamps. If you have come here from Adeline's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to goback to Jena's Blog and start from the beginning!***This month we have 64 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 really wanted to try to think outside of the box a little...so I did two projects for you. My first is a birthday box card.


For this project I used a small found box and covered it with Bella B&T Duos Paper . I then inked the edges using one of our sponge daubers and the Olive Exlusive Ink Pad. Covered the top of the box with our Hollyhock Twill Ribbon and painted the surface of the ribbon with our Liquid Glass (which by the way is one of my favorite products of ours). The final touch at the top of the box is the felt flower from the heartfelt whimsy die cuts, pulled all together with an olive brad.

But you ask where did I use this months stamp....let's open it up
.....................SURPRISE ...................................




Up pops a cute little birthday cake that was stamped with It's Your Day and covered with the liquid glass. On the top inside of the box, I've also made an adorable card sending birthday wishes to the birthday girl/or boy. This would be really cute if filled with some candy or maybe even a bauble or two. The additional Exlusive Ink Pad Stamp Sets used to complete this card are hollyhock, Creme Brulee, and Pansy Purple.




I also did a card using the Top Band Design from the Wishes Card Confidence Card Book. This card used the Bella B&T Duos paper too and the colonial white cardstock. The edge of the card I used a section from the birthday cake of It's your day and created a patterned edge. I then used the liquid glass to dot all polka dots and really help them pop out. The accent flower on the front was cut from the Bella paper and the ribbon used to accent was the cocoa grosgrain . Finally the sentiment was used from the SOTM and pop dotted to give a nice raised effect. The various Exclusive Ink Pad colors I used for the card were : Olive and Hollyhock.

I hope you have enjoyed the projects I made using the August Stamp of the Month.
