Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

This month’s stamp of the month is wonderful!  If you take a bit to explore this month’s blog hop you will see that this stamp set can be used in numerous ways.  It’s great for scrapbooking and card making!

If you’ve just joined, welcome!  If you’re already on the blog hop trail and have come from Nikka’s blog you’re on the right track.  If you’re lost, you can always go back to Helen’s Blog  to get the list of hoppers. 

And now my project!

I love butterflies and I couldn’t resist grabbing the Soar stamped image first.  This card uses 3 of the stamps from this set.  I love how it’s versatile for card making and scrapbooking.  All of the stamps would make quick and easy titles. 

SOTM butterfly card CTMH outside LUCY

I used the Lucy paper pack, matted with Lagoon cardstock.   I’ve embossed all of the stamped images with our Silver Embossing powder.  I then couldn’t resist using the blending pen to pull ink from my Lagoon stamp pad to fill in the open spaces in the Imagine the Possibilities stamp. 

SOTM butterfly card inside CTMH

Inside, you’ll see I used 2 more stamps from this set and a pop-up butterfly. I found this  website earlier this week with the butterfly template with the help of Pinterest.  I’ve been wanting to learn how to make a pop-up card for a while and was blown away by how incredibly easy this one was.  I made a couple practice cards and my six year old son was thrilled to make one with me.    I think the card is lacking a little bit inside but once it’s signed, it will look much more balanced.

These stamps were part of this D sized stamp set.  “Live Out Loud” S1207A is just $5 when you purchase $50 in the month of July!  Don’t forget, this is the last month of this Idea Book.  Lots of things are going to be discontinued, including the Lucy and Footloose paper packs.  Stock up now!

This artwork has also been submitted to this week’s Color My Heart Color Dare #6.  I’ve used the Lucy paper pack and added Lagoon as an extra color to jazz things up.
