Life Is Tweet (June SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop which features the Life Is Tweet stamp set from Close To My Heart.  This SOTM includes some adorable birds with flowers, a party hat, and balloons, along with some 'pun' sentiments.  

If you have come here from 'Jen's Jewel Box' blog, you are on the right path!  With over 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations, there will be a nice variety of different colors, papers, and creative ideas.  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!

A bracket edged Clear Card was used to create a card using the Life Is Tweet stamp set.  The large bird was stamped on some patterned paper from the Footloose kit and then cut out for the front of the card.  This paper piecing technique is a great way to add details to a stamped image without coloring with inks, chalks, or pencils.  

For the full impact of a Clear Card, it really needs to be seen in person.  A photo just does not do it justice.  The unique layers created with the clear front are a nice change from an ordinary card. 

Now "Hop" on over to Allisa's 'Rocky Mountain Paper Crafts' blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas!  Remember, the Life Is Tweet stamp set is only available during the month of June 2012.  The regular price is $17.95, or you can purchase it for only $5 with a minimum order of $50 in other 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.
