July SoTM–American Celebration

 

Hey friends – especially you Operation Write Home people! I wanted to be sure to put up a post about this July stamp of the month. I think that it has a lot of appeal to those of us who are crazy about making patriotic holiday / hero cards for the troops.

The reason why I want to announce this LOUD and CLEAR is two fold – My Close To My Heart website is scheduled to close July 19th. I have decided not to continue selling online. The great majority of my sales come from close friends and customers who love to receive those catalogues in the mail. I do plan to continue with that, for as long as my paycheck will let me. I love CTMH!

Also – this fantastic stamp set is a STAMP OF THE MONTH set – which means that you can ONLY buy it in July, and after that, IT WILL BE GONE! Nooooooooo!  So please, if you would like the opportunity, take it now.

CLICK HERE TO BUY THIS AMAZINGLY CUTE STAMP SET HERE BEFORE JULY 19th OR EARN IT FOR FREE.

As always, you can earn the set for free for your purchase of $100 or more – but you don’t have to purchase anything else if you only want this set. Here is the set, and a card, and some project photos.

The firecrackers are adorable with those sparkly stars!

For this project, I used red white and blue embossing powder to stamp and heat emboss the background on some kraft paper. Next I stamped and embossed the “Celebrate, AMERICA and LET FREEDOM RING” on another layer of kraft paper. I added some bling to make those little fireworks pop.

Here is a closeup of the background paper and it shows how I popped up the “AMERICA” layer with some dimensional squares.

Now then, my mentor Cindy over at Papers Pads & Pictures also used this stamp set this month for a blog hop. (Sorry Cindy, I am totally stealing your photo!!!) I just wanted to share how she even used one of the firework stamps for an alternate card -

Isn’t that the cutest snowflake ever???!?!?!?  Cindy is a genius, I tell you!!!

 

Thanks for stopping by to look! I hope that your holiday celebrations continue to be safe and fun. . . Happy 4th of July!
