National Stamping Month Blog Hop {It's Your Day}


Welcome to our National Stamping Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring projects from the special double stamp set, It’s Your Day.

My Acrylix It's Your Day Stamp Set, Set of 48

If you have come here from {Gina's Blog} you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

We have over 40 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using brand new products from the Fall/Winter idea book 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!

For my project, I used a card that was actually a project from our Michigan Team Meeting last weekend. Thanks to Leslie Hegwood for providing us with a fun card! As I had most of the products, I chose just to take the pieces and stamp and assemble later, allowing the other gals to get their samples done.  I did tweak my card slightly from the one Leslie provided.  

I used the dots background stamp and Slate ink for the 3/4" Colonial White strip.  I used the saying "Life is good..." in my circle with 2 of the little hearts, also stamped in Slate ink.  The bicycle and "enjoy the ride" were stamped in Chocolate ink directly on the gorgeous Avonlea B&T. (Don't look too closely, as I need to re-ink my  Chocolate ink pad and wasn't very successful at lining it up again - that's what I get for waiting until the last minute!)  I added Liquid Glass to the hearts and let it dry most of the day today.

(links will open in a new window so you don't lose your spot in the hop)
