July SOTM Blog Hop

It's that time again! Time for an all new Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Dawn's blog, you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, I hope you'll follow the links and get some great ideas from my fellow CTMH Consultants!

This month we are featuring the sweet little critters found in the Happy Forever stamp set!
With their balloons, kites and butterflies, these cute little guys are ready for a fun summer day. And nothing says summer like our new Splendor papers! This 6"x6" card is a slightly modified version of the 'On the Side" pattern from Originals - such a simple, yet eye-catching pattern!
The hedgehog was stamped in Chocolate ink and softened with the use of a Blending Pen. His body is colored with a Bamboo marker. To create the balloons, simply stamp the image on three different B&T papers from the Splendor set. Cut them out and adhere them over the images stamped on the Colonial White cardstock. For a little dimension, the center balloon is adhered with a 3-D Foam Square. While it doesn't show so well in this picture, the balloons are covered in Liquid Glass giving them a subtle sheen.
Are you ready for more Happy Forever inspiration? Follow Hedgehog's adventures and head on over to Mary's Blog to see what she has created to share with us - I can't wait to see it!
Remember, the Happy Forever stamp set is only available in July. Order it for $22.95 or earn a great discount on it - you can even get it FREE! Visit my website for all the details!
