August Stamp of the Month: Framed

Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from Kathy's blog, you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, following along is easy! Simply click on the link provided at the end of each blog post to be directed to the next blog in the hop. We have about 50 talented consultants participating this month, so once you arrive back here (or to your original starting point) you are sure to be inspired! If you get lost along the way, or find links not working, you can find the complete list of hoppers HERE! When you are finished here, please head over to Jilena's blog to see what she had created to share with us!

The August Stamp of the Month, Framed (S1508) is a set of 12 stamps including 3 fun frames and 9 sentiments for just about every occasion. This set is truly a card maker's dream!


Since I couldn't choose just one frame and sentiment, I decided to make a complete set of cards!


I've been on a bit of a Paper Fundamentals kick lately and seem to use them every time I turn around! I love the big bold white patterns on one side complemented by the shiny, embossed pattern on the reverse. (NOTE: If you love Paper Fundamentals as much as I do, head over to my website and order your favorite packs now as they are all retiring at the end of the month. The good news...they are coming back with new prints...but I adore these prints so much, I know I'm stocking up).

If you follow my SOTM blog posts at all, you will know I love Shimmer Trim. I really, honestly TRIED to not use it on these cards, but I guess you could say I am hopelessly addicted to Shimmer Trim!

A little 3-D Foam Tape added the dimension that provided the perfect finishing touch!








Below are a couple adorable pieces of artwork from the incredibly talented folks in the CTMH Art Department!


Remember, the August SOTM is only available through August 31st. You can order it for $17.95 or add it on to your $50 for just $5. Visit my website to order yours today!
