July 2011 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the July 2011 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring American Celebration, a set of 12 stamps.  If you have just arrived from {Terrie's} blog, you are on the right path.  If you are just starting here, you can join in our circular hop by simply clicking the link to the next blog at the end of each post.

My project is a set of place cards for your Independence Day picnic table.  Simply cut cardstock to your desired width by two times your desired height, then score and fold.  Stamp the images in shades of red and blue (I used Cranberry, Pacifica, and Sky), and stamp or write in the guests' names.  I also made slightly larger cards that you can use to label the tables (really useful if you are having a potluck, so like dishes are put together).  I used the rock and roll technique on the "dessert" card, first inking the stamp in Sky, then rolling the Cranberry stamp pad around the edges to get the two colors blended.  Names were stamped using Friendship Alphabet Small.

Remember, American Celebration is only available July 1-31, 2011.  Contact your consultant or click here to find out how to get your own.

Now hop on over to {Nicole's} blog to celebrate her project.
