#30 Years of Happy Blog Hop

Welcome to our National Stamping Month #30 Years of Happy blog hop! We will be featuring '30 Years of Happy', which is a set of stamps you can receive for FREE when you make a qualifying purchase of $30 in stamps during the month of September. If you have come here from Melissa Robinson's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants HERE.
This month we have 40 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this stamp set and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I've created two cards using the same design from Originals called "Triple the Fun":
 I chose the flower stamp and first random stamped it in second-generation Glacier on each Colonial White square.  Then I inked it up using Glacier and then rock & rolled it in Lagoon and stamped it in the center of the square.  Here is a closer look (the camera didn't really pick up the random stamping, but it gives a nice subtle effect in real life):
Supplies used:
Pathfinding Papers
Cardstock & Ink:  Colonial White, Goldrush, Glacier, Chocolate, Lagoon
Bronze shimmer trim
Green & Blue epoxy bubbles
And here is the other card using the same pattern with Seaside papers and colors.  This time I chose the camera and 'it's your day' stamps to place in the squares.

  And a closer look:
 Supplies used:
Seaside Papers
Cardstock & Ink:  Sorbet, Kraft, Glacier, Desert Sand
Clear sparkles
Scallop edge punch

Here is what the whole set looks like:

Now "Hop" on over to Katy Taylor's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, this stamp set is only available until September 30th! Find this and other great CTMH products HERE.
