Welcome to our monthly Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop!!!
If you have come here from Kathy's Blog, you are on the right track!!

Here is this month's EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5

How ADORABLE is this stamp set??  

Here is the card I created today using images from this stamp.

The butterfly "drew me" when I first looked at this set & I wanted to create with them! I recently saw a multi-window card by a fellow consultant, Tammy Winter, and she inspired me to use this multi-window & create a SOTM card in a similar design.   

TODAY, July 1st, is the debut of our July/August Mini Idea Book here at CTMH --- and that means TONS of GORGEOUS new products were JUST released!!  Everything is NEW & so Exciting!! 

Instead of choosing one of our NEW paper suites to work with, I decided to use the LOVELY Mix In papers ...take a look 

I chose to use the papers that had the kraft & smoothie tones in them and started cutting my 1 1/4 inch squares, to place behind the Multi Square grid. 
By the way -- this Thin-Cut, is a fabulous one! you see the Kraft Stitched rectangle around the outside of the card??  

If you like the multi-square window Thin cut, you'll want to MAKE SURE & know that our Rectangle Stitched Frames fit PERFECTLY around the outside of the card to give it a finishing touch!
Look closely -- the gray image -- is a skinny frame...
the White stitched part -- is actually a LARGE, solid rectangle to use on the front of a card base!
I ADORE the stitched look & how it's so subtle, but yet adds so much to the card design! 

Take a look at the flowers inside a few of the squares....yes, they are stamped!!
Where did they come from?? 
Did you notice the ADORABLE small images in this stamp set!?!  

  Here is a closer look at those butterflies! Have I told you lately how much I LOVE our CTMH Shimmer Brushes? If not -- let me give our a SHOUT OUT to them again!! 

I used the Toffee & Peach Shimmer Brushes to color in my butterfly ---and some EXCITING news---TODAY, NEW colors of Green Apple & Lemonade Shimmer Brushes were released to everyone!!  

I finished up my card with Gold Glitter Gems, Gold Embellishing thread & taking my Peach Shimmer Brush & swiping it through the sentiment for a little extra sparkle & shine. 


I hope you are enjoying this blog hop & are getting a lot of creative inspiration for when you create with your OWN Stamp of the month stamp set.
