Welcome to our CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. Our group of 22 stampers are featuring the August Stamp of the Month, School Year. You may have come from Brenda Lapp. If so, you're on the right path. To see the entire list of participating bloggers, visit Melinda Everitt's blog here.
As a retired teacher, I know that people like to give teachers a note of appreciation or encouragement at the beginning or the end of school. I thought that the Atlantic Hearts Sketch #223 was perfect for a school-related card. I used Cricut Artbooking, a new CTMH word die, and an embossing folder for my card.
Sometimes I want a different sentiment than the one in a stamp set so I have a quick trick for using elements from two different sentiments. You can see them here on the stamp set:
My easy trick is to use scotch tape to (1)cover the parts I don't want, (2)ink the stamp, (3)pull off the tape, and (4)stamp on the paper. I keep a heavy office tape dispenser on my work area so that the process is quick and easy.
Thank you for visiting! Now you're ready to see the next creation on Brandi Robinson's blog.
