• August Stamp of the Month

    Posted on July 31, 2012 by Michelle in Cards, CTMH.

    Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! There are nearly 60 consultants in this hop, showing off some wonderful creations! You should be coming from Judy’s blog, if so, you are on the right track! If not, that’s ok too, it’s a big round circle! If you would like, you can see the whole list of hoppers here.

    This stamp set is fun! It’s already pre-distressed for you, and gives some fantastic texture to your images! Here you can see the artwork that the Art Department at Corporate came up with. Super fun stuff!

    You can see on the lagoon cardstock, they used lagoon ink, so it would stand out some, but not as much as black would, and they made their own B&T paper with it. On the Card, they used a yellow (or possibly versamark) on the yellow to have just a bit of design, so it isn’t completely blank. Then, on the Display Album, they used the corners on just 2 of the corners of the white panel. Those corner stamps just add to the clusters that they have created.

    I was looking through one of the many magazines that I have, and found a card that had a fun flourish with ribbon and flowers and I really liked it! So, I decided to recreate it with this stamp set!

    Everything on this card is brand new product! (with the exception of the White Daisy Cardstock). You have the New Slate Ink, New Slate dotted ribbon, New paper flowers, and New Black & Grey sparkles!

    I used just one stamp of this stamp set on this card, but managed to make it look so different! This will be a fun stamp to use!

    Your next stop in the blog hop is at Maria’s Blog. Make sure to go and check out her blog, and everyone else’s too!

    Have you thought about becoming a consultant in the past? Well, now would be the PERFECT time to do that! With this new book, Close to my Heart has created a new consultant kit, and LOWERED the price! You can now become a new consultant for just $49! Take a look at what you get for that $49!

    I am loving that Avonlea paper! (my first workshops will be using that paper!) AND! That isn’t all! We got these fabulous bags at Convention, with our new Idea Book and some other yummy stuffs! Close to my Heart has decided that they are going to give them away FREE! Consultants that sign up in August will receive one of these bags with their New Consultant Kit! (while supplies last, of course!)

    This bag is water proof, has a shoulder strap, two straps to be able to carry it like a back pack, a large inside pocket that holds LOTS of papers! (more than 90 layouts! . . . ask me how I know that one!), two side pockets, and a front pocket as well. This bag has a retail value of $45 all by itself! And, since you weren’t at convention, the only way you can get it is to sign up to be a new consultant! Let me know if you are interested! I would love to have you join my team!

    Happy Crafting!
