Welcome to the hop!

Today is July 1st - release day! We are in the midst of the monthly hop celebrating the new stamps. If you came here from Tonya's blog, you are in the right place. If not, I urge you to head over to the Design Team blog to check out the hop from the beginning!

In any case, we have 15 new stamps this month, and you can purchase any of them with a 15% discount through July 8th! Simply add any of the stamps from the July 2016 Release stamps to your cart, and your discount will be added automatically.

Ready for some eye candy? The first piece uses colored pencils to color the Chick Car stamp, combined with one of the stamps from the Road Trip Stamp Set:

This card uses the Swaths of Texture background with one of the stamps from the Better at the Lake Stamp set. That background is just great - really gives the feeling of movement,:

 This piece uses Pan Pastels to color the Oceanside stamp, combined with Listen to the Sea sentiment (previously released).Don't you just feel that you are in Maine?:

 And finally, one that is dear to me, since both my dogs are rescues.. This Rescue Love stamp was colored with markers and layered over the Falling Flowers Background (previously released):
Okay, the is all from me today! Now it's time to move onto the last two hoppers, starting with Robin Redd.  In case you need it again, here is the entire hop list:

I'm so glad you were able to find time in your hectic schedule to create such beautiful cards. How nice to have a stamp that you can relate to with two dog rescues. Your cards are awesome.

Each piece of art is unique and each one has a technique that makes it special. Thank you for the inspiration.
