Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring June's
Stamp of the Month, which is "A Flowering Bunch," a set of stamps that include
some pretty images and sentiments to brighten any project. If you have come
here from Annette's blog you are on the right path! When you reach the end of my post you will continue hopping along from the link posted for you.
We have another talented group of over 60 Close To My Heart Consultants
sharing their creations using this month's Stamp of the Month on their
blogs. Hopping along with us 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!
Here is a look at the images that are included with this stamp set:
Now, here is the 5 x 7 card I made. All products are available in the
oh so lovely and trendy Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book that you can view
online on my website, http://lovetostamp.ctmh.com:
Project Supplies: Stamps: S1306 June Stamp of the Month: A Flowering Bunch Paper: X7164B Buzz and Bumble paper packet Cardstock: Cocoa, Creme Brulee, Sunset, and Sweet Leaf Inks: Cocoa Embellishments: Glitter Paper from Z1830 Brown & Tan Glitter Paper, Cocoa Button from Z1358 Basic Assortment Buttons, Creme Brulee Twine from Z1702 Paradise Baker's Twine Tools: Z1790 Cricut Artiste cartridge, Sponge Dauber, Micro-Tip Scissors, Corner Rounder, 3-D Foam Tape, and Glue Dots
I used my Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut out the flower, leaves, and scalloped circle shapes. The flower and leaf shapes
match perfectly with the stamps in the stamp of the month set so I was able to make
a bunch of these fun cards in no time at all!
Now you can hop on over to Melinda's blog to see her creation for this hop. Be sure to visit all the Consultants at
their blogs to see lots of fun artwork for your viewing pleasure.

Here is a look at the fun papers included in this packet:
Then look at these gorgeous glossy embossed sheets of coordinating cardstock:
This a my fourth layout from one packet of Dream Pop. I followed along with the specially designed Dream Pop workshop adding a few touches of my own. This features photos of our lovely girl getting dressed up for "80's Day" during Spirit Week at her high school last fall. She's such a doll!
