August Stamp of the Month: Baroque Borders

The month of August always holds so much excitement with Close to My Heart...a brand new Idea Book chock full of amazing new goodies for stamping, scrapbooking and papercrafting, a great deal for New Consultants, a fun National Stamping Month special, and of course, an all-new Stamp of the Month set. That must mean it's time for a Blog Hop!

This month we have over 50 inspiring artists sharing their creations. If you've arrived from Doreen's blog you are on the right track. Simply click the links at the end of each blog post until you arrive back here. If you find links not working, or get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of hoppers on Helen's blog.

This month we are featuring Baroque Borders, a gorgeous set of 5 stamps that will add the perfect flair to all of your cards and scrapbook pages!

This standard sized card pairs the Baroque Borders stamp set with the gorgeous and elegant Avonlea Paper Packet (X7155B)...greens, teals and greys...so pretty! 

The sentiment is from Words of Comfort (C1524). With such a subtle and subdued color palette, I couldn't resist giving it something that would pop, and our new Silver Shimmer Trim (Z1799) was just the touch of bling I needed! 

Thanks for stopping by on our Blog Hop. It's time to see what my super talented friend, Pamela O'Connor has created - she never disappoints! 

Be sure to check in often...with a brand new Idea Book, I have lots to share (and a couple more Blog Hops this month too).

Happy Stamping! Happy Scrapping!
