Life Is Wonderful July 2015 SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the Life Is Wonderful July 2015 SOTM Blog Hop. There are just shy of 50 bloggers participating in this hop. If you are new to blog hopping, it is just a circle. Click on the link (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next blogger.

The SOTM for July 2015, Life Is Wonderful, is a D-size set of 8 stamps that is FREE with a qualifying purchase of $25 in current, retail priced stamps. The stamps in the Life Is Wonderful set are:

You should have arrived here from ***Jennifer Dykstra's "jd designs"***. If you get lost along the way, a complete list of participants is always listed at Melinda Everitt's If You Bling It.

I finally got brave and cut one of my stamps. I have been hearing people talk about cutting their stamps apart for a long time, but I was not brave enough to try it until now. I have to admit, I inked my stamp with a color I know leaves a bit of stain on the stamp and I moved to bright sunlight when I cut the stamp using the Micro-tip Scissors (Z534).

On my card front I used the technique that Dianne Wood used on the card posted on the Make It From Your Heart (CTMH) blog post "Blissfully Drifting through an Ice Cream Dream" on June 11. After heat setting my white embossing powder I colored it with my ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers using Golden Yellow, Turquoise Blue and Peony Purple.

On the inside of my card, to create the glass of lemonade, I used the technique Paige Dolecki - Stampologist shared on her Seasonal Expressions 2 Blog Hop post on April 6.

Before you visit ***Beth Naumann's "Beth's Creative Block"***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Online Business Address.
