April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Color Your Life!
Have you been going in circles viewing the great Close to my Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop?
If you came from   Miss Carrie's Creations  you are now here, viewing my first try at the hop.
Michelle Stewart will begin the cycle again if you want to learn more techniques and see more art featuring the great stamp Color Your Life (p.80 in Seasonal Expression 1 Idea Book) that you can get for only $5 with qualifying $50 purchase.



Easy steps to use the stamp of the month to make a Celebrate life card.
1. stamp Life image on paper of choice and attach to card base, I used Chelsea Gardens.
2. Add color to stamped image and attach a zip strip below stamped paper.
3.Stamp banner piece and attach with foam tape or 3D foam dots.
4.Evaluate card and decide what embellishments to add

5.punch hoes in banner piece to add a piece of  ribbon. (note easier to do before adding foam tape.)
6. I thread ribbon front to back first and then bring it to the front and triml
7. Add gems and or sparkles as desired.
