Hello and thank you for joining me on this leg of the blog hop for Create A Smile’s August Release!

Hopefully, you’ve arrived from the amazing Linda Trace’s blog, but be sure to hop along and see all the other cards made by some wonderfully, talented crafters!

Create A Smile is a new stamp company, whose first stamps were released in July 2014. They are made of high quality photo-polymer and produced in Germany – they will for sure make you smile! I was sent the digital versions of the stamp designs and here’s the card I made with one of them:

There’s two new stamp sets being released TOMORROW! You can find their store at www.createasmilestamps.comI used Jungle Fever and chose the challenge theme set by Johanna Pier.

These two fun sets are filled with super cute images and available for purchase at 8am CET (2am EST).

I coloured the flower image using various Intense Pencils for a watercolour effect and then fussy cut each one out before foam mounting to a piece of white card stock. The sentiment comes from Clearly Besotted’s Fabulous Fuchsias stamp set.

You can win a $15 gift-certificate for the store – all you need to do is hop along and leave comments on all the fantastic and inspiring stops (one comment per person, per blog please!). We’ll pick random winner from all the comments – so the more blogs you visit (and leave a comment on) – the more chances you have to be a winner! You have until Saturday August, 9th 8am CET (that’s 2am EST). The winner will be announced on the Create A Smile Blog on Sunday (July 13th).

Enjoy the Hop and thanks for stopping by!
