American Celebration (July SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop which features the American Celebration stamp set from Close To My Heart.  This stamp set has wonderful images to capture your Fourth of July celebration, or use for any festive occasion

If you have come here from Tamytha's 'Paper HeARTIST' blog, you are on the right path! With over 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs, you should be able to find lots of great creative ideas to use for your own projects.  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!

Images from the American Celebration stamp set are embossed using Silver embossing powder on a Black cardstock.  A thin strip of bright green ribbon and a piece of Pear cardstock brightens up with card, along with colored A La Mode glitter and silver self-stick Opagues.  Thought this would be a great card for a boy's birthday.   

Now "Hop" on over to Traci's 'Scrapi Traci' blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!  Remember, the American Celebration stamp set is only available during the month of July.  You can earn this stamp set for a great discount or even FREE by ordering CTMH products.

If you get lost on the Blog Hop or find links that aren't working, there is a complete list of all participating blogs on Helen's 'Hooked on Stamping' blog.
