If you have come here from my talented friend Gina's Blog, you are on the right track!!
This month, we will be featuring the EXCLUSIVE June SOTM stamp set called "It's Your Day To Sparkle".

Here is this months EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5 with EVERY $50 CTMH purchase in JUNE 2019. 

I LOVE that we have an EXCLUSIVE stamp set available at a DISCOUNT each & every month!!

What a FUN set, and I can't wait to see what my CTMH sisters create with this stamp set! :) I'm sure you saw some beautiful work already in this hop. :)    

Today, I chose to create this card design using this stamp set.
Let's check it out!   

I was inspired by a recent card I saw, where the vellum was used as part of the "opening " part of the card!! What fun!! I ADORE our Decorative Border Thin cuts that I used to cut our vellum...that stitched edging has so much appeal! 

Take a look at this BEAUTIFUL paper collection that I took my colors from.  This paper collection is called "True Love. I only used one sheet of patterned paper (the sapphire blue in the background) but used the cardstock colors in this collection to finish out the card! 

Let's take a look at some of the details of this card. 

There are SO MANY new Thin Cuts (metal dies) in our Seasonal Expression 2 (SE2) catalog, that was released on May 1st, and this is Lace Border is a popular one!! It is back ordered until the end of July!  I knew a lot of you already had this border & could use it to recreate this card if you chose.

I "fussy cut" out the flower out of the Cake!!  I love to use as many stamps as I can from one particular stamp set! :) 
I colored the flowers with TWO of our shimmer brushes....Mint & Sugarplum.  I wish you could see the shine on these flowers!! 

Another fun technique, I hadn't done in a while....creating my own background. I used the "make a wish" wording of the June SOTM, and created a subtle background for part of my "patterned" paper. :)  


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!
