July 2015 Stamp of the Month Bloghop

Welcome to the July 2015 Stamp of the Month Bloghop! This month we are featuring, "Life is Wonderful", a wonderful stamp set.*

This is a bloghop that features MANY talented Close to My Heart Consultants.  If you started at the beginning of the blog, your last stop was most likely Lori Brown's blog.  When you finish on my post, click on this link to go to Michelle Stewart's Blog.  It doesn't matter if you are hopping forwards or hopping backwards because this is one big loop.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find a list of the order at ifyoublingit.blogspot.com.  

I made a greeting card to use at my next card class.  Because the beach on the Oregon Coast is my favorite place to think, "Life is Wonderful", I made a card that feels all beachy.  You are welcome to think of your favorite beach when you look at this card!!!  I combined three stamp sets into this image:  July SOTM, Seaside WOTG, and Ice Cold Summer.

I fell in love with the cabana look created when using the Seaside Paper Packet, retiring Smoothie Striped Washi Tape, Teal Shimmer Trim, Sorbet Cardstock, Glacier Cardstock, Colonial White Cardstock, and Coral Reef Sequins.  The inks I used were Sorbet, Hollyhock, Desert Sand, Glacier, and Pear.  Non-Stick Micro-Tip Scissors and 3L E-Z Dots Adhesive were the basics I used.

Remember that the July SOTM is only available between July 1 and July 31, 2015.  Click here to order yours or visit with your own consultant.  Have fun creating with "Life is Wonderful"!  

Thanks for stopping by!!!  Nancy

Wavy Blooms Set of Cards Workshop

Coming up on July 7, 2015 at 1-4pm, I will host a workshop featuring the "Wavy Blooms" Stamp Set at my house in Sherwood, Oregon.  You will make two of each of the three designs then wrap them up in a ribbon completing a six card set of handmade cards.  Workshop fee is $12.

Please RSVP by July 3 to nancysheart2heart@comcast.net to hold a place for yourself.  If you are unable to attend, you may still order the stamp set and supplies by clicking here.

The inspiration for the cards was from CTMH's 2015 Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog.
