July SOTM - Strong Roots Blog Hop


Welcome to our July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. In this blog hop we are featuring Strong Roots. This set includes 11 images! If you arrived here from Becca-expressions Blog you are on the right track. This hop is a big circle. Just look for the next blog link at the bottom of my post. If you are just getting started on the hop, when you get back to me you will know you have completed the circle! If you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of hoppers HERE

I created this card with the new Mix In Paper pack from our July August catalog and a piece of Woodgrain from our current Core Catalog.  I love have these two paper collections work so well together!   Both papers give a warm homey feel for this stamp set.  

The card design is based off of Pattern #26 in our Make It From Your Heart Vol. 5.  I used Intense Black Ink to stamp the images and then colored them with various Tri-Blend Markers.   I stamped the larger tree and hand trimmed it to offset it in front of the home with 3D foam tape.    I used the stitched banner thin cut from the Waterfall Thin Cut set to stamp the word "HOME".
