July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - For My Beautiful Friend


Glad you could join us today!  A blog hop is just one big loop of fun and creative ideas. So if you're joining me here, grab your beverage of choice, and sit back ready to be inspired by creative ideas for using this new Close To My Heart stamp of the month.  If you are coming here from Becca's blog , you are on the right path.  At the end of this post you will see a link to Krista's blog for you to continue following the hop.  

The stamp of the month, For My Beautiful Friendis a set of 20 stamps that will be wonderful for designing cards, tags, bookmarks, or scrapbook page embellishments.  As you go through this hop, you'll see lots of creative and fun ideas for using this stamp set.  

I belong to a group of card makers who come together once a month the share different materials, techniques, or tools to use in designing cards.  We were finally able to get together in person with social distancing by setting up tables in a big square in my garage.  Where there's a will, there's a way!   Prior to that we were meeting on Zoom and sending each other packets in the mail.  

One of my friends brought a wreath builder tool to last month's meeting, so I decided to try the stamps from this set to create 3 of the 4 cards I made using this set.  For coloring the flowers I used the Tri-Blend Alcohol Markers.  

Welcome to my garden and fairy gardens to see my cards today.

 For my last card I used the CTMH Multi Square Windows Thin Cuts 
as my tool for designing.

The For My Beautiful Friend stamp of the month set is available only through the 
month of July.  After seeing all the great ideas in this blog hop, you're going to 
want to add this to your stamp collection.

You can purchase this set for $18.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant or find it here .
