Stamp of the Month Bloghop for May 2015

Hello!  Happy May Day!!

Welcome to the May 2015 Stamp of the Month Bloghop!!!
This month we are featuring, "Just Sayin'", a stamp set with 14 images.

By completing the bloghop you will be treated to the artwork of 68 participating, CTMH consultants.  This page is mine, but you may have come here via http://www.stampologist.com/2015/04/may-sotm-blog-hop-just-sayin.html.  When you are ready hop on over to Lela Norris' Blog.

I spent a while looking at this stamp set trying to decide what to do.  After several searches on Pinterest, I found a route that I could go with and decided to make a spiritual card.  But it could easily be about something else such as coffee..."Anything's Possible with Coffee...Full of Goodness".  After all isn't there a classic coffee ad with something like that?  I then found a layout that seemed to work for me by LeAnn.

I wanted to use Jackson papers, so I made a manly card.  Here it is ...



I wanted to use up some embellishments from my stash.  Don't you remember corporate telling us to use what we have and quit hoarding?!!  So you will see Cocoa Grosgrain Ribbon, Houndstooth Washi Tape, and Color Ready Kraft Borders from the past.  Current products I used were Jackson B&T (available starting today through July 31), Colonial White Cardstock, Juniper Cardstock, and Cocoa Exclusive Ink.  Adhesives were a Tombow Gluestick and 3-D Foam Tape.  I used a green marker for the handwritten words, but I'm sure we have a Shin Han Marker perfect for this.

You will be able to purchase this stamp set during this month only for $5 with a qualifying order. Adding Jackson paper will help you get there and also this month only we have "Taste of Summer" papers and stamp set to celebrate National Scrapbooking Month.  You are invited to place an order here.

Enjoy the rest of the bloghop whichever direction you are moving!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Nancy
