August Stamp of the Month - Framed

Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Framed, a set of 12 stamps - three frames and nine sentiments! If you have come here from Judy Burger'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 around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.

This set actually coordinates with our newest Cricut Collection - Artistry.  When I first saw this stamp I thought SUNBURST CARD!  I love it when an idea comes together so quickly!  

I used Whimsy Paper Fundamentals Cardstock for this card. I alternated using the front and back sides.  Since the Glacier Extra Thick Twine really IS extra thick, instead of wrapping it around the card, I used our mini stapler to attach it to the card!  I love using the stapler this way!

This is the card I will be teaching in my Technique Tuesday Class. For this card, I used colors from the Adventure Paper Fundamentals Cardstock pack.

This stamp is just $5 when you spend $50 in Close to My Heart products during the month of August!  If you don't already have a consultant, shop my website at 

Now it is time to hop over to Kathleen Androlewicz's blog and see what she has created!

50th Birthday - Artfully Sent

Today is my baby sister's 50th Birthday!  Guess that tells you at least how old I am!  This is the 2nd birthday card I made this past week. The first one I shared on Wednesday for another sister.  After I completed her card I was stumped as what to do for the other Birthday card.  Then I remembered that this was her big 5-0!  And guess what?!  The Artfully Sent cricut cartridge has a great Over the Hill card!  I pulled it into my Design Space and just started cutting.  It came together so quickly!

I used Confetti Wishes paper and found some unused compliments from another project that I had done.  I used one large compliment for the front of the card and added some strips of Canary, Thistle and Crystal Blue cardstock here:

Here is the "STAR" of this card - the inside!  I used a piece of Glitter paper from the Purple Glitter Paper (Z1992) (there are three shades) for the "50" and the banner.   

The candles on the card are from the Confetti Wishes Assortment.   I added more compliments to the inside of the card too.

Products used:  (The are all available until August 31 or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!)
