CTMH July SOTM and Wavy Blooms




Here is another card using the July Stamp of the Month, Life is Wonderful. I just used the beautiful frame from the set this time. The previous card posted with the sea shells uses most of the stamps from this set. 
This set can be purchased for $17.95 OR FREE this month with a qualifying $50 purchase. BUT, this is only available until July 31st.

I used the retired Hop Scotch Paper Pack. 

The frame is from the Stamp of the Month, stamped in Smoothie Ink. 

The Happy Birthday is from the Happy Everything stamp set. This set is an Operation Smile featured set so $3.00 from each set sold will go directly to Operation Smile. This fabulous set is retiring on August 31st.

The flowers are from the Wavy Blooms stamp set. I stamped them with Black Memento Ink and colored them with CTMH select colors of ShinHan Alcohol Markers.  I then added liquid class and MS glitter to the centers. I was going to punch small ciricles from the Beautiful CTMH glitter papers, but couldn't find my punches I needed.
I fussy cut them and layered with Foam Tape.

Challenges for this card:
Seize the Birthday - Anything Birthday
Penny Black - Sentimental Inspiration
The Paper Players - Frames
A Gem of a Challenge - Birthday Wishes
Digi Designs - Hand Coloring

Life is Wonderful - CTMH July Stamp of the Month



I combined the July Stamp of the Month, Life is Wonderful,  and Treasured Friendship for my card today.
Because it's a bigger stamp, I decided to make an easel card with it. I love Easel cards.

Along with those stamps, I also used the Seaside Paper Pack.
