Classic Summer Bash Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Classic Summer Bash S1805


If you've just arrived here from
KATHY's BLOG then you are on the correct path.

If you get lost along the way, you can find
a complete list of all of the participating
consultant blogs here on MELINDA's BLOG.


First, I'm sharing this standard-size card I created using
the stamp of the month, plus papers from TWO different
paper collections - Beautiful Friendship X7233B and
Postcard Perfect CC5181 (available this month only, while
supplies last)! The patterned papers I used from the Postcard
Perfect paper collection include the polka-dotted vellum and
wood-grain papers you see here. All other papers are from
the Beautiful Friendship paper packet. The ink colors I used
include: Black Archival, Canary, Sapphire, Smoothie, and a
Leaf Green marker to color in the leaves. I did also use this
cute little sentiment stamp...Celebrate (M1188).
Finally, here's a quick tip to use when adhering your
vellum paper...use tiny dots of glue on the back side of
each of the printed polka-dots and then your glue is less
likely to show and be seen through the vellum.

Next, here's a look at all of the images
included in this FUN Summertime stamp set:

Now you can continue on with the blog hop
and be inspired by more creativity using this
set of stamps by visiting HALEY's BLOG next!

Holy Shmokes this is amazing! I love it. I love the bling on the banner, I thought of it but was worried how it would look and you went for it and it is amazing! There is nothing I don't love about this card.
