June SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to our CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring June's SOTM, which is called a Flowering Bunch, a unique set of 10 stamps.  If you have come here from TERESA'S BLOG, you are on the right path!

This month we have 50+ Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this SOTM (and other great CTMH products) on their blogs. This 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!
This month I'm deep in CTMH Convention Extravaganza hibernation, so I whipped up a quick card. I used the new sketch from Retro Sketches on this card...mostly. I didn't bust apart the background layer just like the sketch, but I did break it up with my Cricut cut sentiment frame.
I stamped the flowers and fussy cut them with my microtip scissors. Popped those cuties up with some foam tape over Cricut cut leaves and topped them off with a little bird, inspired by the Moxie Fab World Feather Weather Tuesday Trigger, pictured below. Don't you just love those fat little birds? I knew my little wooden Trinkets birdie would be so cute colored with Sweet Leaf and Indian Corn Blue alcohol markers!

Now "Hop" on over to HALEY'S BLOG to see her fab work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants Blogs to soak in the great crafting and SOTM ideas! Remember, this SOTM will fly away at the end of June!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set for just $5!

I'm linking this card up to the Heart 2 Heart Creature Feature challenge as well.

Here are some more projects I have made using this Stamp of the Month...

When am I not inspired by your lovely artwork? NEVER!! My eye was first drawn to negative image, not sure how to say this, but I saw the gray of the sentiment frame first and loved it! Then I backed out and saw the amazing detail. Never knew the trinkets could be colored. Cute!

I love this card! The patterns and layout are great.

Sharon Chapman said...

Wendy, Did you cut the sentiment frame out of slate cs and then sand it to give the white edge OR did you use a stamp and ink the cs with slate?
I love this card!

Wendy Coffman said...

Sharon - It's cut out of Whisper CS and sanded, then stamped in Black ink.

Jen Rubio said...
