The July Stamp of the Month, Life is Wonderful (S1507) is a set of 8 stamps featuring words, flourishes, frames and more all in the super trendy subway art or chalkboard art style. My favorite feature of this set, aside from the general style, is that all of the words and phrase are separate stamps, allowing you to mix and match to create the sentiment you desire!

I am totally in love with the chalkboard look and knew I had to pull out my Black cardstock and White Daisy ink! These two cards are super simple and came together in a flash. The first one features the black and glacier polka dot B&T from the Snowhaven paper packet, a little glacier cardstock and a simple strip of Silver Shimmer Trim. Don't you love that even our "seasonal" papers, like Snowhaven, can be use all year long?

My second creation features the same simple design as the first, just rotated. I went with a slightly bolder look for this one with the Chalk It Up papers and a little Black Shimmer Trim.

Time to hop along and see what Angela created to share with us!
