Here is this months EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5 with your $50 CTMH purchase in June 2018. 
I LOVE that we have an EXCLUSIVE stamp set available at a DISCOUNT each & every month!!

What a CUTE stamp set!! Check out the card I created today. 

While I think the girl in this stamp set is adorable & the main focus ;)...I thought I'd try and create something using other images in this stamp set collection.  
I started out by looking through our Make It From Your Heart, vol 3 How-To-Book, and decided to use pattern #2.  

The paper I used to create this card, comes from the BRAND NEW "Fresh Air" collection.  This outdoorsy paper collection just called my name! 
It needed some "shimmer & shine" I added some gold glitter gems & gold glitter paper....lovely!! 

I also choose to use some GOLD ribbon...and guess what?  

This RIBBON (along with a LOT of other ribbon) is also on SALE THIS MONTH at Close To My Heart!! Wahoo!! Who LOVES sales?!?! Make sure to check with your consultant to learn more!! 

Take notice of the top part of the you see it?

I took some of the designer paper from the Fresh Air collection & used our embossing folder to indent the paper!  This leaf folder is STILL available, and can be found under the "Going Soon" section of your consultants website. :)

I also decided to emboss the apple basket do this, I used my nutmeg pigment ink, stamped it on the Linen colored cardstock, & then sprinkled clear embossing powder over it.  I used my heat tool to set the powder & this made a GREAT coloring base to use the ShinHan markers. 

ShinHan markers used were...Carmine, Sap Green, Clay, Mahogany & Colorless Blender marker.

I hope you are enjoying this blog hop & are getting LOTS of ideas for when you create with your OWN Stamp of the month stamp set. Happy Crafting to each of you!
