Sweet Life

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR MY POST FOR THE "HURRAY FOR THE RED, WHITE, AND BLUE" BLOG HOP, PLEASE CLICK HERE.  THANK YOU!







Welcome to our July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month's stamp from Close to My Heart is "Sweet Life" and is available exclusively through your Close to My Heart consultant from July 1 - 31, 2013.  You can purchase this stamp set for only $5 with a qualifying purchase.




For my project, I made a set of cards using this stamp set:





I made these A2 size cards measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" out of plain cardstock.  I'm not sure if you can tell or not, but the Gray or "Slate" background is cardstock measuring 4" x 5 1/4" which I scored at every 1/4" to give it some extra texture.  Not sure if that came through in the pics or not.

I used our Slate Washi Tape on a few of the thin banners.  I used our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut the Ruby scalloped circle under the sentiment "FRIENDSHIP is the sweetest of fruits."  It was cut at 2" from the image on page 41, C1, < Circle3 >.

I colored the image using our Ruby and Sweet Leaf markers. I love our new markers because they make it so easy to shade the images!
