July Stamp of the Month: Happy Forever Blog Hop

Pin It
Welcome to the July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! If you came here from Mary Eisen's blog then you are on the right track. If you are new to the blog hop then just start here and hop from blog to blog following the links to wonderful SOTM artwork done by fellow Close to My Heart consultants. If you get lost along the way, you can see the full list here.  Here is my card this month and I hope you enjoy it.

C1407 Hot Diggity Stamp Set (saying used)
Z1142 Brown Stazon Pad
Z2111 Chocolate Ink Pad (saying)
Z1212 Spring Harmony Brad Assort
3505 Watercolor Pencils
3174 Blending Pen
Z1151 3-D Foam Tape

I layered the papers together and then stamped the hedgehog in Brown Stazon Pad over the top.  I also stamped the kite again on scratch paper, cut it out, and foam taped it over the original kite which was stamped off the paper.  The images are colored with watercolor pencils and blended with the Blending pen.  The "Fun in the Sun" saying is from the SUPER FUN Hot Diggity stamp set with Chocolate ink.  I also used one of the brown pencils to create the stitch marks around the edges of the cardstock.  I hope you like it!

Feel free to leave a comment and then hop on over to Susan Brooks' blog for another adorable idea!  If you would like to purchase this stamp set then you can order it on my website or from your consultant.  Thanks!
