August Stamp of the Month - Floral Celebration

Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month 
Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Cat Nowak's blog}   We have 18 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.  

The August Stamp of the Month is entitled  Floral Celebration  (S2008) (Set of  20).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:

I have been holding Facebook Lives on my customer group every Monday - Friday and teaching various techniques and projects.  Last week I taught "making your own patterned paper" using the August Stamp of the Month, Floral Celebration.

I made both of the "patterned papers" used in my cards on this live.

I took some of the stamps in this set and dedicating one color to each, stamped randomly on a piece of White Daisy Cardstock.

I used lighter colors for the larger stamps and the darker or more vibrant colors for the smaller flowers.  Plus I second generation stamped some of the flowers.  Second generation stamping is when you stamp the image a second time without reinking it.

Here are my cards:

I used these inks for this card:  Thistle Ink, Glacier Ink, Peacock Ink, Sweet Leaf Ink, and Black Ink.  I added the 3 dots with our  Black 0.05 mm Journaling Pen.

I used these inks for this card:  Peach Ink, Smoothie Ink, Candy Apple Ink, Julep Ink, and Black Ink.  Once again I added the 3 dots with our  Black 0.05 mm Journaling Pen.

To finish these cards off, I stamped the sentiments with Archival Black Ink and heat embossed using our Clear Embossing Powder.  I wanted the embossing to stand out so I added more embossing powder using our fantastic embossing pens and more clear embossing powder.

The cards are matted with Thistle Cardstock (card #1) and Smoothie Cardstock (card #2) and then matted again with Black Cardstock.

Hard to see but I added some Diamond Stickles in the middle of the large flowers.

The August Stamp of the Month Stamp Set can be purchased for $18.95 or if you purchase $50 in CTMH products, you can add this stamp set to your order for an additional $5.  This stamp set is only available between August 1 – August 31, 2020.
