June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Close To My Heart's June stamp of the month is called "A Flowering Bunch" and contains 10 different flowery images and phrases that also include matching cuts on the Artiste Cricut Cartridge, which makes creating super easy. You can view all the images in this fun set in the righthand column of my blog page.

A new Stamp of the Month means a Blog Hop and with over 55 CTMH consultants participating this month, you're sure to get some great inspiration using this stamp set. If you're already hopping, you came here from Traci Pasqualone's blog. If you get stuck along the way, you can simply go here to view the entire list of consultants' blogs. To see where to go to next, scroll through my post to the end. But don't forget to leave a comment. They're always so appreciated!

As is my usual, I made a 5 x 7 inch card...

My card features the fun and versatile Claire paper pack, Outdoor Denim chevron ribbon, Liquid Glass pigment inks, embossing powder and alcohol markers. The card base is Cashmere card stock.



The Hollyhock paper flower is from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, pg. 68, 3 inches.
The stamping was done with Pacifica pigment ink and clear embossing powder onto Colonial White card stock, then I colored in the open areas with various alcohol markers.



The leaves are stamped with New England Ivy ink onto Olive card stock. Little drops of Liquid Glass create a dew effect. The label behind the flower is also from the Art Philosophy cartridge, pg. 55  2 1/4" from Cashmere cardstock and another at 2 inches from the polka dot B&T paper is layered over it.



"Thanks" is stamped with Hollyhock and "A Bunch" is in Outdoor Denim and paper pieced over the top.


Okay, now it's time to hop along through the Blog Hop. Next up is Dawn Ross.


Thanks for stopping by today!
