July Stamp of the Month
The July Stamp of the Month is a lovely, versatile stamp set that is a great match for your cards and layouts that celebrate all the wonderful things—big and small—that life has to offer.  Additionally, the Hostess Rewards stamp sets have previously only been available as part of the Hostess Rewards program, which means now is the perfect opportunity to get those special stamp sets you’ve had your eye on!  

For this hop, I used the Hostess stamp set, Paper Bird (C1613)

 I love the words stamped on the bird, heart and butterfly.  To show each stamp, I used gold embossing powder and posted them on a pop-up card made using the Circut cartridge Artfully Sent pg. 11.  I backed the tree limb with the brown Jackson paper and used the Blossoms (bulk) for the band on the front of the card backed with lagoon, and the reverse side of Blossom was used inside the card.  I also added some gold glitter paper to outline the cutout items and to create additional trim.
