Life Is Wonderful July SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month, almost 50 consultants are featuring Close To My Heart's "Life is Wonderful" stamp set. 

If you have come here from Darlys Recker'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 on Melinda’s Blog.

This elegant thank you note shows how versatile the "Life is Wonderful" stamp set is. There are several great phrases included in this set, but I really love the frame stamp. It could be used to frame a sentiment, as shown here, or to create a journal box, or even matte a picture!  

The flourish stamp was randomly stamped on the card base to create a background of swirls. The frame and sentiment were stamped on a piece of Colonial White cardstock. The clear sparkles were placed over the black dot in each corner to add a little sparkle to the card! This piece was matted in black cardstock, then attached to the card base using 3-D Foam Tape.  

The stamp set is available only during the month of June. It can be purchased for only $5 with any $50 purchase.
