Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Bear Hugs

If you have come here from Haley's Blog, you are on the right track!!
This month, we will be featuring the EXCLUSIVE July SOTM stamp set called "Bear Hugs".

This blog hop is a great big circle, so you can START HERE & work your way around to the many consultants on this “hop”! If you get lost along the way, you’ll find a complete list of PARTICIPATING CONSULTANTS by clicking HERE

This month we have many Close To My Heart Consultants that will be sharing items they have created using this month’s stamp set.  So, sit back & enjoy your tour as you click on the link at the end of each post to see what EVERY consultant has created.

Here is this months EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5 with EVERY $50 CTMH purchase in JULY 2019. 

I LOVE that we have an EXCLUSIVE stamp set available at a DISCOUNT each & every month!!

What an ADORABLE stamp set!!  I'm sure you saw some beautiful work already in this hop. :)    

Today, I chose to create this card design using this stamp set.
Let's check it out!   

I was inspired by a past CTMH Idea book & the card sketch they used for our January 2019 SOTM's their card design....

I used the HANDSOME paper pack called  "Into the Wild" and added in some coordinating CS colors too! Here's a peek at this "famous" paper suite...

Let's take a look at some of the details of this card. 

It's hard to see in the photo...but if you click on the photo to enlarge it, you'll notice there is a stamped background! :)  I used Linen ink, to stamp the hearts AND the texture designs from our current "Timeless Textures" background stamp set. 

This "Timeless Textures" stamp is a GREAT one to have in your stash that you will use a lot!  

I also stamped the flower stamp in NE Ivy ink....on top of that Linen stamped watercolor like wash too! 

The "STitched Heart" Thin Cuts (metal dies) are one of my FAVORITES, as you can use hearts on so many projects!!  They coordinated perfectly with the "Stitched Square Frames" Thin cuts too! :) 

Here is the "recipe" of items used to create this card.
