August Stamp of the Month - Something Splendid

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring August's SOTM, which is Something Splendid, a set of 13 stamps.

If you have come here from Melissa's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Helen's Blog and start from the beginning!

This month we have 65 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

This month's stamp set was perfect for this layout.  My grandma is very into flower gardens and so is my daughter.  While we were visiting, Teagan helped grandma put out her yard decorations.

For the larger flowers, I stamped and second generation stamped with the flower base then used a darker color for the top portion of the flower.  I cut many of the flowers out and attached them to the layout with glue dots.  I also used the smaller flower around the the title.  Most of those flowers were also attached using glue dots.  To make the centers pop on the smaller flowers, I used liquid glass on them. 

Paper and Cardstock: Bella, Desert Sand, Olive, Smokey Plum, Vanilla Cream
Inks: Blush, Creme Brulee, Desert Sand, Hollyhock, Smokey Plum
Stamp Set: Something Splendid
Embellishments: Foundry Tabs, Liquid Glass
