It's Time to "Live Out Loud"...July Stamp of the Month!!

It's  that time again...time for another fun and inspiring Stamp of the Month Blog Hop and this month, it's time to "Live Out Loud!"

If you've arrived here from Kathleen's Bowl of Stamps, you are on the right track. If this is your first stop along our hop, simply follow the links at the end of each blog post to navigate to the next blog. This month we have almost 60 talented Close to My Heart consultants sharing their artwork.

The July Stamp of the Month, Live Out Loud, is a bold, graphic sentiment set great for scrapbook pages, but fun for cards too!

This pretty card was inspired by the amazingly creative K. Aaron Brown - if you haven't checked out her blog,  be sure to take the time to do so. I flipped Aaron's original design on it's side for a little variation. The papers are from the gorgeous, new Florentine paper packet. The banner pieces are cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. Other embellishments include Sweet Leaf Stitched Ribbon, Cocoa Ribbon Rounds, Just Blooms Flutter Paper Shapes and Opaques Mocha Gems. To stamp the pretty Soar sentiment, I inked the stamp completely in Creme Brulee ink and rolled it in both Sweet Leaf and Cocoa inks.

Time to hop along to Jen Patrick's blog to see what she has in store for us this month!

Remember, Live Out Loud is only available July 1st - 31st. Purchase it for just $17.95 or add it to a $50 order for just $5! Head over to my website to order it today!
