August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

The beginning of another month is here which means a new stamp of the month! This month brings us a beautiful stamp set called Something Splendid! A beautiful large flower that incorporates one of my favorite techniques, Base and Shade Stamping.

This month the blog hop has over 60 consultants featuring tons of beautiful artwork to inspire everyone! If you come from Dawn's blog you're on the right track. If not just keep going from here as it's one continuous loop. You're sure to love all the art that has been created!

Base and Shade Stamping: This is one of the easiest techniques that adds a huge amount of dimension. To do this stamping technique you first stamp the "shade" or inside portion of the stamp in the lighter color. Next add the "base" or outside stamp by lining up the images. This is easy with acrylic stamps! Just look at the effect you get!

I've created two different pocket cards. One can hold a nice letter and the other I've designed with book marks. It's a great small gift and who doesn't need more bookmarks???

Now hop over to Jody's blog for more inspiration!


  1. These pocket cards are really darling. Hope it's OK to use these ideas for my customers. They will love these.

  2. Oh, so cute!! I love the pattern you used for the first card.

  3. Love the pocket cards; they are so cute with this set!
