Sweet Life - CTMH July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to my Heart July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. 
If you came here from Annette's Blog, you are on the right path. If you just happened upon my blog, then just continue following along until you get back here again. There are 53 consultants sharing their fabulous SOTM artwork with you today so take you time and enjoy each one and please leave each of us a sweet comment before leaving.

My project today is one I made for My granddaughter's Kindergarten teacher. I guess I'll have to make another one for her first grade teacher in a few weeks. The image was stamped with the Momento Black Tuxedo Ink Pad then colored in with the Close to my Heart exclusive alcohol markers.

The designer papers I used are from the Scholastic paper pack which will be retiring the end of this month and while supplies last.  The small apple that I used to embellish the corners was from an OLD retired Word Puzzle stamp set.

  • Now hop on over to Mary's Blog and see what fabulous eye candy she has for you.

A Flowering Bunch - June SOTM

I have another one of my club cards to feature today. This card uses the CTMH June Stamp of the Month called A Flowering Bunch. The flowers and sentiment are from this same stamp set.
My card uses the Spot Light technique. THANKS Jolene for the inspiration for this card. My forever friend and downline who always comes through for me when I have a brain freeze.

The images were stamped with black Memento ink and colored in with the two CTMH exclusive Cranberry Alcohol Markers. The center was colored with the Pear marker and then topped with the Green Glitz Glitter Gel. The center of the small flower was dotted with one of the Pink Glitter Gems.
All was tied together with a piece of Red Bakers Twine from the Harvest Assortment.

My card today was inspired by a sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things.  All products are from Close to my Heart.  The Stamp Set is called Fabulous You, The paper packs I used are Avonlea and Clementine. Both of these papers are being retired July 31st. So, if you love them, pick up on them while you can. These are two of my favorite papers and I hate to see them go.

The bird and flowers were stamped & fussy cut twice and layered with foam tape.

The images were colored in with our exclusive alcohol markers in the colors of Sorbet, Juniper and Whisper.

There is a strip of Slate Polka Dot Washi Tape across the bottom.
