Sweet Life

Only one more week of July!
I'd say it is about time I showed you some Stamp of the Month
(SOTM) cards.
The feature stamp set which is available this month only is
"Sweet Life".

I started with my favorite card base, Kraft and stamped the sentiment to make a background design.  The tag was kind of a happy accident.  I stamped the tag with the cherry image, then colored with my Close To My Heart watercolor pencils before misting it with our
spray pen filled with re-inker.  The moisture of the spray pen smeared the image a bit but I like the effect.
For the next card I used the same image stamped in a single color to create a background.

This stamp set is available on my website for $17.95 or only $5.00 with a $50 purchase.
If you order, please be sure to join my "Mid-summer Night's Dream" gathering for a chance to win a summery craft treat.
Here is a view of the complete set.

Tomorrow I will show you some cards with the apple image.
Thanks for visiting.

Ooh, these are beautiful, and I really love how you've showcased the versatility of the stamps here. Love the stamp set. That tag turned out fabulous. Love the watercolor effect you achieved with the misting. The cherry "background" paper you created is fabulous, too!
