August Stamp of the Month - Lots of Love

The August Stamp of the Month was Lots of Love.  Elegant greenery stamps would look grand in any variety of colors or class it up with touches of black and gold. Pair with the all-occasion sayings and you'll be feeling the love even more. The Lots of Love stamp set also coordinates with the Whole Lot of Love Designer Series Paper (DSP).

Lets take a look at the great cards that was created for this stamp set.
Card #1 - Sending Love
Stamp Set:  Lots of Love
Ink:  Memento Black, Bermuda Bay
Markers:  Regal Rose, Old Olive, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime
Paper:  Bermuda Bay Base, Whisper White Layer
Accessories:  Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon, Dimensions
HINT:  To make the word "Love" pop, I cut the word out and attached with dimensions. By coloring the stamps with markers I was able to have flower stems one color and the flowers another color.

Card #2 - Happy Birthday Love
Stamp Set:  Lots of Love, Beautiful Bouquet (Happy Birthday)

HINT:  This is a really cool card, the Whisper White is the part that you open!  The Black is only a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Base, the Whisper White is scored, folded and adhered to half of the Black.

Card #3 - Sending Love
Stamp Set:  Lots of Love
Ink:  Memento Black, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz
Paper:  Marina Mist Base, Whole Lot of Love DSP Layer, Whisper White
Accessories:  Oval Framelits (Retired), Blushing Bride Sequins, Dimensions
HINT:  The Whole Lot of Love DSP really makes the card pop!!
