August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

 Boy, have I been busy this month! But August is heating up here in Tampa - yuk!! .....and I have workshops and more to offer all of my wonderful customers!  But first everyone has to check out this month's Stamp of the Month - S1308 A Chocolate Affair!

Over 60 consultants are participating this month and showing off their creative artwork!  If you have been hopping with us, then you have arrived from Michelle'blog here  and have checked out her awesome masking technique .

I will tell you this - the entire month I have been working with these stamps, I have been craving chocolate....go figure!  Here is the artwork from corp- great ideas for my "Death by Chocolate Open House!"

This stamp set is such a fun set and there are so many possibilities with it.  I am anxious to see everyone's artwork and how creative they are!

Here is my card that I created - I only know a few people who do not like chocolate - they must be insane!! :)  A few of "The Tomaino Patch team" are participating in a SOTM swap this fall and I will have their cards to share with you here!  So come back on Friday to check out the talented "Patch sisters!"   The colors we were allowed to use were any of the pinks, reds and chocolate, of course!  They could used a current paper pack as an accent.  

Supplies for my card!
S1308 A Chocolate Affair
Cardstock - colonial white, chocolate, cotton candy and ruby
Paper pack - Chantilly B & T
Ruby chevron ribbon and the 2" scallop punch (retired)
Cricut Artbooking cartridge- Overlay pg. 48 at 5"

Card design is from the NEW Make It From Your Heart Volume 2 - pattern #20

I am ready for more chocolate!!!   To stop the cravings, I am going to hop along and move to Maureen's blog here.   Maybe I won't be so tempted from her design, but I doubt it!!
