Another Splendid Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop!

Don't you just love the instant gratification of card-making?!   This month is no exception as I had fun playing with the August stamp of the month called 'Something Splendid'.  It's a great addition to any card-maker's repetoire... and will fill anyone's day with sunshine.

If you've just come from Judy Burger's blog, WELCOME!  We have over 60 blogs participating this month, so you're in for a treat and great ideas!



I used the Splendor My Reflections Level 2 paper pack along with a little clear embossing with just part of the detail in the main flower image to give the sunflower some touchable dimension.  The trick to the two-tone is to use Close To My Heart's Sunflower ink for the big image and Goldrush ink for the detail color.

Please continue on your happy hopping to Lori Brown's blog.

What's great about the Stamp of the Month?  Well, if you love Close To My Heart products, you can get it at a great discount or even for free with a qualifying order.  Learn more and get your own Something Splendid at my website HERE.

  2. Your card is really lovely! I'm with you -- card making is very satisfying. And so was this SOTM. I can't remember one I've liked as much!
