August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!  If you came here from Brae's blog, you're on the right track.

This month we are featuring D1424 Something Splendid (set of 13 stamps).

Stamping Tips:
The large flower featured in this set is a "base and shade" stamp, meaning you can stamp the base in one color and then stamp the the shade in a deeper tone to add depth and detail.

Sometimes it can be a little tricky to figure out how to line the stamps up so here's my tip.  Place two blocks side by side.  Remove the stamps from the carrier sheet and place one on each block, being careful not to shift the angle of the stamp.  If you place both images on the block similarly and pay attention to how you angle the blocks when you stamp, it will make it much easier to line up the images.  (Hopefully that makes sense... maybe I need to may a video?

Next up on the hop is Nancy Brown.  Head on over to see what beautiful work she came up with...
