Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
Our featured stamp set this month is Framed (S1508).  This lovely set has sentiments for all occasions and it coordinates with our new Artistry!  This set is a great set to have for the beginner and every stamper in between,  It's a must have stamp set in my opinion, and it can be yours for just $5.00!  Ask your Close to My Heart Consultant, or contact me to find out how. 
At the moment the sizes & page info. is not on the carrier sheet, so please jot down the information for your Framed stamp set.

If you have arrived from Nikka's blog you're on the right path. If you get lost or wish to start at the beginning of the hop visit Melinda's blog for the completely list of consultants participating this month.  Or you can keep on hopping and you will see all the artwork, since the hop is one big circle. Now it's time to see some paper crafts!

I'm playing with signing my photos...I'll get it right sooner or later.   

The three items I made using this set, some cardstock, card bases, ink, and the Artistry Cricut cartridge.

Simple and quick Valentines card dressed up with Shimmer trim and a few sparkles.

This card came into being when I embossed the Sorbet paper.  Originally I  thought I would make a card with three different pieces of embossed cardstock, but when I embossed the folder actually cut through the cardstock, so I went with it!  It was simple and fast.  AND I adore it!

This is my favorite item that I made with this set.
I love Christmas, and I collect Christmas stamps.  I have rarely let go of a CTMH Christmas set since I became a consultant in 2006.   I cut out the mittens and the overlay from the new Artistry Cartridge.  The cartridge just released, Aug. 1st, and it's a must have.  If you love Art Philosophy then Artistry is the perfect companion cartridge.  A must have in my opinion.

All of my supplies are from Close to My Heart.  I exclusively use Close to My Heart products with the exception of tools in my personal crafting.  The supplies I used in my creations are listed below.

  • Cardstock: Lagoon, Hollyhock, Sorbet, & White daisy
  • White value card bases
  • Shimmer Trim: Red & Teal
  • Slate Diagonal Striped Ribbon
  • Designer Creations Slate Paper Bags
  • Exclusive Inks: Black, Lagoon, Slate, Sorbet, Topiary
  • Embossing Folders: Chevron, & Hearts 

Thank You!  I appreciate you taking the time to view our hop.  We have another featured hop on the 6th of August showcasing the brand new Artistry Cartridge which you may order now.  Contact your consultant or me I'd love to help.  Now it's time to move on to Judy's blog to see her artwork.

Thank You for viewing our Hop Today!
