July Stamp of the Month - Sweet Life!


I wanted to share this month's stamp of the month with you! It's perfect for tucking in a basket of fresh fruit from the farmer's market to give to a friend!


The stamp includes "outline" images that are perfect for using our alcohol markers with! Remember, it's best to use the pigment ink as your outline ink. I used chocolate pigment ink to stamp the image, then I sprinkled clear detail embossing powder over the top, tapped off the excess, then heat set it so that the outline is a nice dark, shiny brown!


Then I colored in the cherries with our Cranberry and Cranberry Light markers with just a hint of Creme Brûlée for a highlight. For the leaves I used our Topiary and Topiary Light markers with a little bit of Slate for the branch.


Here is an apple card - "love you to the core"! The yellow textured paper is from our Tommy paper packet and the burlap ribbon goes perfectly with the orchard theme!


And one final card for today..."you're a peach"!


This month's featured stamp set is $17.95 - BUT you can get it for only $5 with a $50 purchase! Be sure to stock up on all of the supplies and tools you need for stamping with outline images and coloring with markers and get a SUPER DEAL of this month's SWEET LIFE stamp!
