August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for August! What a fun stamp set we have this month! I love, love, LOVE it! If you've come from Melissa Laverty's blog you're on the right track. Don't you love her ideas! Let me show you some more!

Here's a cute card with a bit of a "split negative" effect. The pattern is the #2 card from the standard size card workshop in our How To book: Wishes. The accent color is sunset and the B&T is from our new kit called Mischief. These papers are great for Halloween projects but also have great patterns for year round use! I like to stamp a little extra on the inside, too. A 2nd generation image behind the message is a nice accent!

This is an 8" x 3 1/2" card made with papers from the Mischief paper kit. The pattern is Puzzle Backdrop from our How To Book: Originals. It's hard to see in the photo, but I used some of our new Silver Glitz Glitter Gel to accent along images stamped on the top and left of the broom layer. I also brushed a bit onto the broom. 

Now this is a standard size card showing another of the patterns in the Mischief paper kit. the pattern is Sweet & Simple, again from our Originals How To Book. A really great detail about these new B&T papers is that they are now cardstock weight and have this really cool Zip Strip along one edge. One side of the Zip Strip tells you details about the kit. The other side has a pattern. You just cut the Zip Strip off and use it as an accent in your projects! Look in the bottom left of the card above. The 1/2" x 1 1/2" piece is from a Zip Strip! I layered it and added some Licorice Pearls for accent. You are going to LOVE the Zip Strips!
