July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop ~ Bear Hugs

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring July’s stamp of the month ~ BEAR HUGS (S1907) a set of 17.

If you are coming here from MICHELLE STEWART’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 15 consultants participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

I love this mamma bear and cub!  I wanted to design a layout but then decided on a card.  Here is what I designed.

I thought the bright yellow gingham from Craft On would be great for the background. I stamped the bears in Espresso Pigment Ink. I used my watercolor pencils to color the flowers and butterfly.  Here is the inside of the card.

The card open by swinging the bears to the right. The hearts are a bit hard to see but they are stamped in Lemon on either side of the sentiment.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of JULY and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!
