Jump on It July: Oh, What a Wonderful Life!

The hissing of the grill, the splashing of the pool, the laughter of the kids playing tag—it’s officially barbeque season, folks! And that means it’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy some of the most wonderful moments of life.

And, lucky for you, the July Stamp of the Month was designed to celebrate these exact moments! You know, the kind of moments where you realize just how wonderful your life truly is. This stamp set, which is aptly named Life Is Wonderful, captures the optimism we all aspire to have toward life, the kind of optimism where you reflect on yesterday, appreciate today, and look forward to tomorrow.

For this month only, to help you celebrate life even more, you can get this stamp set for FREE with a qualifying purchase in current, retail priced stamps. How’s that for a silver lining?

July Stamp of the Month

Our favorite part of this stamp set is probably the shabby chic style of the lettering that evokes feelings of home and the “good ol’ days.” We absolutely love the chalkboard-like effect the stamps in this set create when they are used on black paper. How adorable do they look on this sweet couple’s scrapbook page?

Wonderful life

As an added bonus, this set is ultra compatible with all of your other stamp sets, making it ideal for creating just the right proverb to capture your family’s precious moments.

It’s difficult to decide what we love most about this stamp set, but we know you won’t regret jumping on this great July deal. Now grab that glass of lemonade, join your family in the backyard, and start making memories to last a lifetime! Oh, and one more thing: Always remember something wonderful is about to happen. 🙂

Blissfully Drifting through an Ice Cream Dream

Do you remember what it felt like to hear the sweet music of the ice cream truck wafting down your street? It was pure summer magic. There wasn’t a kid around that didn’t feel the internal tug when the ice cream truck issued its siren call through the neighborhood.

Something about ice cream on wheels is just simply irresistible. Perhaps it’s because the only thing that can make a carefree summer day more wonderful is the sweet chill of ice cream melting down into your tummy.

To commemorate this beloved summer tradition, we bring you the deliciously adorable June Stamp of the Month, which is appropriately named Ice Cream Dream. Check out some of the artwork made from this set full of fun!

Birthday parties and ice cream go together like frosting and cake. They just make each other a whole lot better.

And take a look at this absolutely adorable card created by Close To My Heart Consultant Dianne Wood from South Australia. Keep reading to learn how she made it.

Unknown-1

  • Use the scallop embossing folder to emboss Lagoon cardstock.
  • Place sentiment and ice cream cone from June Stamp of the Month on a 4″ x 5″ My Acrylix® block.
  • Using VersaMark™ ink, stamp image on Outdoor Denim cardstock.
  • Cover stamped image with white embossing powder and set with heat gun.
  • Using ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers in the colors of your choice, shade embossed stamps, pressing lightly with the markers.

Thank you for sharing your technique with us, Dianne! We love the card. 🙂

Happy June, everybody!
