CTMH - You've Got Flair - July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring July's SOTM, which is You've Got Flair, a set of 8 stamps. If you have come here from Cibele's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Jena's Blog and start from the beginning!

This month we have many Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

You don't have to recreate the wheel every time you want to make a card. For this card, I started with the Cute as a Button My Originals Card Kit. I stamped the SOTM in Black, then colored it with CTMH watercolor pencils. Using the blender pen (rather than a wet paint brush), I smoothed out the colors. I added Liquid Glass to the purple sections of the card only. I used foam squares to mount the stamped image on one of the stickers from the card kit. Added the "thanks" sentiment and called it finished! The longest part of making this card was waiting for the liquid glass to dry.

This card is based on one of the workshop cards in
WISHES. I used the You've Got Flair stamp set(D1351), Daydream papers, a pop dot for the center "flower", black ink, bubblegum fiber from the Summer Celebration collection and the following markers: Blush, Lilac Mist and Sweet Leaf.

Now "Hop" on over to Kami's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the July SOTM is only available until July 31st! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

  1. love the card and the colors are great.

  2. Fun cards - I especially love how you used the card kit base - makes for a quick fun card!

  3. Smart idea to use the Card Kit bases with stamping! That's a great way to stretch the use and make something quick...unless you're using Liquid Glass...LOL.
